Recruitment technology company, Hiring Hub, has announced the launch of its new recruitment agency management tool, Portal.

The platform, which helps companies track third-party recruitment activity, performance and spend, follows a successful pilot earlier this year for the award-wining Manchester-based firm.

Ranked among the UK’s top recruitment companies by independent review site Trustpilot, Hiring Hub’s marketplace is used by over 500 employers, including Deliveroo, On The Beach and SSE.

Its new solution, Portal, which has been developed during lockdown, will offer large organisations the ability to manage all third-party recruitment activity in one place, providing insight into recruitment metrics, supplier performance and spend, while ensuring compliance and simplifying payments.

The concept was born from market demand, following enquiries from enterprise companies with in-house recruitment teams looking for greater flexibility, visibility and control of third-party recruitment.

Hiring Hub used direct feedback from talent acquisition and procurement professionals at those organisations to help shape the product.

Experienced HR Tech sales leader, Daniel Locke, formerly of Pathmotion and Textkernal, has been hired by Hiring Hub to take the recruitment agency management tool to market.

Simon Swan, CEO at Hiring Hub, said: “We were approached by multiple companies looking for a platform through which they could consolidate all recruitment agency activity.”

“Looking into this problem, we found significant demand for a solution that would help large organisations overcome slow supplier onboarding processes, non-compliance, and disconnected payment systems, as well as a tool to provide a global view of supplier performance data.”

“As a result, we are now pleased to introduce Portal to address this gap in the market.”

Based in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Hiring Hub boasts industry-renowned, ex-Adecco CEO, Peter Searle, former N Brown boss Angela Luger and the ex-MD of Lorien PLC, Ian Brookes, on its Board.

Chairman Peter Searle, commented on the launch of Portal: “Hiring Hub has created an exceptional technology platform and value proposition, providing a seamless, virtual route to working more effectively with recruitment specialists that is essential for employers in today’s market.”

Swan continued, “This is an exciting time for Hiring Hub despite the economic turbulence. We have weathered the worse of the pandemic and are grateful to be in the position to expand our products and services to meet market demand and enable further, international growth.”
