The Challenge

With talent flooding through the doors of G4S, it’s safe to say that their talent attraction is already effective. With multiple unconnected ATS’, candidates applying for more than one vacancy with G4S had to apply using a different ATS for each role. This was detrimental to the user journey and brand consistency, creating a negative candidate experience and brand image.

  • No centralised reporting to track ROI of the recruitment team, job boards or agencies
  • No talent pooling made reducing spend near impossible, increase in processing time due to inability to use pre-screened, pre-experienced qualified talent
  • No way of storing applications for future roles
  • Inability to pro-actively search for candidates within the system
  • Poor candidate experience; re-applying for seasonal roles

The TribePad Solution

  • A unified recruitment platform: Multi-managed single Applicant Tracking System enhancing the application process for candidates and recruiters
  • Talent Pooling: The ability to contact prospective skilled candidates on a regular basis to recruit a large quantity of seasonal roles for event security and other positions, including Wimbledon, Formula 1 and other highly recognised global events
