Applicant Tracking System

Simplify your recruitment administration.

Recruiting staff can be time consuming, especially when there are several different processes involved that may rely on different systems. Tes Portal’s built-in, centralised Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is designed to support you at every stage of the recruitment journey and provides you with a simple way to track and manage your applicants.

From receiving applications and shortlisting them to requesting references and making your final decision who to hire, it makes collaboration easier and also helps you to maintain high levels of security and transparency with applicants as required under GDPR.
