Mobile messaging for recruitment

Reach applicants quickly and boost their chances of success

Text messaging can bring a huge range of benefits to any recruitment agency. It can help improve efficiency in your call centre, saving time and money on phone calls that don’t get answered.

The additional functionality that the Textlocal bulk messaging system provides is also extremely useful to recruitment businesses; allowing for the easy gathering, storage and sorting of customer mobile numbers. This in turn means that only the most relevant new job information received by each customer, personalising the service received by each, and increasing customer loyalty.
