Lord David Blunkett, former Education and Employment Secretary, visited Sheffield-based tech company Tribepad today.
Tribepad, who provide candidate management software for some of the world’s largest organisations including the BBC, KFC, Tesco, Pizza Hut and G4S, used the opportunity to speak with David Blunkett about how their technology could save schools and academies tens of thousands of pounds each year.
Dan Kirkland, Director at Tribepad said, “It was fantastic meeting David Blunkett today. We discussed how we will be launching ‘www.SupplyTeachers.jobs’ this year which will help reduce the amount that schools spend sourcing supply teachers for temporary roles. We hope that with the support of David Blunkett we can shake up the current inefficient marketplace and allow schools to spend more money on teachers and children rather than recruitment agencies”.
Tribepad’s software has already reportedly saved Skipton Building Society over £35,000 in the first half of 2016, and G4S over £1m in their first year.
Tribepad also discussed the evolution of jobs over the coming years through automation and artificial intelligence. Tribepad believe the impact it will have and the opportunities it provides will be huge.
One of Tribepad’s priorities is to help revolutionise recruitment globally and locally through their Applicant Tracking System and Video Interviewing Platform. Tribepad is already a leading provider of SaaS systems for the attraction, recruitment and engagement of candidates for over 45,000 recruiters worldwide. Tribepad operates in over 125 countries with candidates from 198.
Tribepad was founded by former CTO of Plusnet, Dean Sadler, in 2008.
