Main features

Improve efficiency by automating more of your recruitment process.
Our time-saving tools speed up the on-boarding process and ensure the best possible match.


Recruiter profile

Expand your business by providing clients with outstanding staff.  Quickly match candidates to jobs with easy access to job advertisements and CVs.  It is also easier to stay in touch with both clients and candidates and store all key information in one place.

Candidate profile

Enable candidates to set up and manage their own profile —  so you can speed up the recruitment process.  They can upload a CV and photo, filter job advertisements, specify their availability and apply for a position.

Employer profile

Make it easy for employers to post job openings — from anywhere at any time — using customisable application forms. Quick access to candidate profiles and calendars simplifies the selection of potential employees to a single click.

Talent pool filter

Finding the ideal employee becomes effortless with a broad range of filters, including status, sources and ratings. Access to an accurate talent pool helps you to find the candidate you need quickly when new positions arise.

Interview management

Arrange appointments with candidates and synchronise your calendars — to make sure time slots never get mixed up.  Candidates can say 'Yes' with a single click, saving you from endless calls and emails.

Applicant tracking system

Clear visibility of the current status of every candidate, across all stages of the hiring process, allows you to handle every application easily.  Archiving their data makes sure you always have instant access to a talent pool for any upcoming positions.

Document storage

Store all your important documents securely in one place, including CVs, employment contracts and invoices. With intelligent searches, it’s easy to find whatever you’re looking for.

Real-time tracking and reporting

Real-time dashboards are the best way to analyse and improve your performance. Smart reports enable you to easily monitor daily operations and outcomes — and make data-driven decisions, increasing performance.

Staff rating

Both you and your clients can rate candidates, making it simple to find the best staff. Employers can also permanently add a successful candidate to their profile ensuring they always have easy access to their details for future job opportunities.

Payments management

We enable your clients to make online payments via their profiles and can help to ensure every employee receives payment on time.  Invoices are stored safely in one secure location.




Automating more of your business processes increases your team’s workflow and productivity. Secure electronic document storage and automated email responses can help your business run more efficiently.


Never miss another appointment. Synchronise your calendar with your profile, enabling you to set up alerts and reminders about upcoming events and tasks.

Data analytics

Accurate data analysis guarantees a successful match between candidates and jobs. You can also analyse your own performance to check you're making the right decisions.


Make staying in touch simple by streamlining your communication channels. Communicate easily with every candidate, without endless calls and emails.    Potential employees can send you their resumes directly via their profiles — and you can set up personalised auto-responses to engage more easily.


We employed HeadChannel to create a website for our property management business, which is due to go live shortly. Throughout the contract HeadChannel have been professional but always approachable. They have explained the workings of the website to us in a non-technical way and are always available to answer our questions. They respond very quickly to any queries we have.

The William Pears Group

When the final product was launched it surpassed our initial specifications and rolled out seamlessly. The work did not stop there though and we are still designing new ideas and concepts together that will allow us to develop new systems and take the company forward. I could not recommend them highly enough as a developmental business partner.

At Your Service Group

What I like about HeadChannel is that they never promise more than they can deliver. They also try to see the problem from the client's point of view. My experience has been a fast, friendly and good service over the past three years. I would not have any hesitation in recommending them.

The Good Hotel Guide

This exciting new app will revolutionise the way the palliative care community shares news and intelligence across the sector.

Help the Hospices

Just to say thanks so much for a great job on the website.

Crabtree Law LLP

The site is absolutely beautiful and a credit to you all! I am so pleased - I am sure it will be popular. Thank you!

The Centre of Excellence for Sensory Impairment

We have worked with HeadChannel on a number of varied and challenging projects over the past few years. During that time, they have been creative, reliable, cost-effective and they very quickly grasp the complexities of the task in hand. I'd have no hesitation in recommending their work to others. Oh and by the way – they are jolly nice people to work with.

The Institute of Practitioners in Advertising

Crabtree and HeadChannel have been working together to re-design the Crabtree Property Management website, integrating a new system to enable lessees to view their account details, make payments and receive all correspondence electronically. This has been a learning curve for us all, but Beata, Andy and the team at HeadChannel have been thoroughly accommodating to all our requirements; they regularly keep us up to date on the project and have consistently done a fantastic job. We would definitely recommend them.

Crabtree Property Group

We are happy to work with Headchannel and we are also happy with the integration you have done for us, that’s why we are moving forward for our further integration project. Thanks.
