An Irish global company, The Hire Lab was founded in 2013 with the vision to transform the recruitment experience for both the candidate and the hiring team. They wanted to bring the modern tech experience that we all currently enjoy - from hailing a taxi on an app & viewing it on a map to ordering a pizza & tracking the delivery driver and transforming the recruitment process, ensuring transparency & engagement for candidates as well as harnessing intelligent hiring tools to automate the process for hiring teams.
It is the only recruitment system in the market that puts the candidate at the heart of the journey. This allows their clients to offer an enhanced employer brand experience where they can mix their marketing and engagement strategies with their recruitment – vital for their target market of the public sector, where every candidate is often a client or customer. The Hire Lab is now powering hiring campaigns for some of the biggest public sector employers, such as the NHS, HSC, and Department of Social Protection across Ireland, the UK & Europe.
Full details are available upon signing NDA, however, the estimate turnover for the latest accounts show a turnover of just over 1.1M Euros with adjusted EBITDA of approx 780,000 Euros.
Their cloud-based technology provides candidates with a personalised portal designed to handhold them through the hiring journey sharing marketing, employer branding and content to keep them engaged, informed and encourage self-servicing. At the same time, it allows recruiters to use intelligent matching and automated hiring tools such as language testing, video interviewing, assessments and profiling to streamline their hiring processes and ensure collaboration and compliance.
The Hire Lab's Onboarding module which seamlessly connects into the recruitment platform means clients can harness the power of the candidate portal and turn it into an engaging interactive onboarding experience designed to reduce the manual processing of their hiring, enhance the candidate experience and reduce new starter drop out significantly.
