Applicant tracking system

A simple way to track and manage your applicants

One of the reasons why recruitment can become so time-consuming is the amount of admin that’s involved. But not anymore. When you advertise your role with Tes all your applications automatically go into our Applicant Tracking System (ATS), allowing you to shortlist potential candidates, respond to successful candidates, notify unsuccessful ones and keep a record of all communication between you and individual candidates, in one place.

Collaborate easily as a school team and respond to candidates faster

Your ATS is accessible for FREE as part of Tes Portal and will help you to:

  • Simplify your applicant management process from application to job offer and remain GDPR compliant
  • Improve the application experience of your candidates through swift communication
  • Track and manage candidates at every stage of your recruitment process
  • Easily review, search and share all your applicants for immediate shortlisting
  • Quickly communicate the outcome of an application to a candidate
  • Easily integrate your own application forms or process
  • Download and print all of your applications in one go
