Jane Titterton - Sales Office Manager - Wicksteed

Best thing about the system? THE COST, and the control of reviewing CV’s which I know have been given to me via this platform by people who have applied for the job. My frustration with CVs from Agencies is that often those people haven’t applied for an advertised job and any interviews performed are cut short because the interviewee says the job is not for them!

Everyone who I’ve come in contact with either by email or telephone could not have been any more helpful than they were.

I am very glad I chose to have the support of an Account Manager to help with getting the best out of the company adverts.

Since using the Smart Recruit Online system, my recruitment processes have changed dramatically. Previously our recruitment method was primarily working through agencies. I was advised we could reduce our costs, and improve the volume of quality applicants for our roles. The system has certainly proven itself to do all this! I have received outstanding customer service from the SRO team during what has been a 1st class experience of a new tool and new company!

Smart Recruit Online’s team took the time to understand our requirements surrounding recruitment as a business and have talked us through how to use the system, which is intuitive and user friendly anyway and dealt with all my needs in a professional and efficient manner! Previously we were paying agency rates amounting to a % of base salary to recruitment agencies, but the savings we have seen already from our recent drive have been HUGE! Whilst we still have roles live, we have to date filled 100% of the roles we have advertised, saving thousands of pounds in the process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Smart Recruit Online’s system to my peers and in fact, already have!

SRO was already in place when I joined the company. It is easy to use, covers everything we need and makes my job a lot easier! The support team has a ‘can do’ attitude and nothing is ever too much trouble.

WysePower were introduced to Smart Recruit Online in 2013 and it has proven to be a real success story for us and our recruitment processes. The platform is incredibly easy to use and user friendly. I find the Customer Services team to be warm & friendly, extremely knowledgeable, flexible and provide the support our business needs with excellence! We have saved thousands of pounds in recruitment fees to date and the Smart Recruit Online platform has far exceeded our expectations on delivery! I would not hesitate to recommend this platform to anyone with any recruitment needs!

I have recently started working with Smart Recruit Online for our UK vacancies and have to say that I am very impressed by the service at all levels. The first vacancy that I advertised not only had an extremely high quality response and I was able to fill the role quickly, but I even went on to fill a subsequent role in the same department with one of the other applicants. I have in fact recommended Smart Recruit to a recruitment agency who contacted me asking if they could assist me with any vacancies!

Dave Netley - Recruitment Manager - Inspired Thinking Group

My demonstration was extremely comprehensive and the initial support and training was excellent. The quality of candidates received so far has been very good and the fact that the platform offers so much more than what I’m currently using is great. The breadth of features is much better for me personally as I am now able to keep everything I do in one platform.

Glen Thomas - Director - UHY Hacker & Young

UHY Hacker & Young have in the past struggled to recruit and find enough of the right high-quality individuals that we look for.  Our Graduate campaign was handled professionally and to a very high standard. We were always able to speak to Mark or one of his team. I would highly recommend Smart Recruit Online to any organisation that is recruiting as we achieved the results that we were after in good time, recruiting four very high calibre individuals for roles as trainee accountants. The results were truly excellent, hence we are using Mark and his team again this year.

Smart Recruit has been great to use, backed up by a great team who are always on hand to help. Rob and the team have really been great. Always there to offer support and advice as well as a helping hand. It’s just nice to know someone else is able to check the advert for me when I am super busy and need to get roles up.

The Smart Recruit Online system is very effective, super easy and straight forward to use. The customer service is outstanding, with SRO staff literally on call. In particular, we love the video profiling tool, which makes a massive difference to our recruiting strategy.

John McIntyre - Resourcing Specialist

Smart Recruit Online has delivered a key solution to our recruitment needs. As an organisation with often quite niche roles to fill, they have given us the ability to reach out to the right candidates with ease. The Support Team has made using the system easy and provided us with best practice and useful tips to maximise our ability to deliver on our people strategies.


Sarah Hayes - HR Director at Securitas

Smart Recruit has been very attentive, understanding of our needs, and adaptable; nothing is ever too much trouble for them. They delivered as they said they would, and our managers love the SRO system, it’s made their lives so much easier!

All in all, working with SRO has been a very positive experience for us
