Northampton first in recruitment app roll-out

Lee Gamble, managing director of Berry Recruitment with its new app

A new app launched by Berry Recruitment in Northampton enables users to find work in seconds.

The tech is an extension of the town’s busy branch and means workers can take more control of their lives by choosing when and where they work.

The app will be rolled out nationally but Northampton has been chosen as one of the first places to benefit.

From downloading the app to accepting work is swift and simple – with employers also benefitting by filling vacancies more easily.

Berry Recruitment provides full and part-time work in sectors including industrial, office, catering and driving – and it also provides staff for large events.

Already the app is being downloaded by many who want to make a bit more money in the run-up to Christmas.

Lee Gamble, manager of Berry Recruitment, said: “The app does not replace our Northampton branch – it is an extension of it.

“Our workers can always talk to a real person; algorithms are great, but people buy from people – this hybrid solution is definitely the future for recruitment.

“Northampton is an ideal place to roll out the app because of the nature of the work the branch provides and the high number of staff we already have on our books.

“There are many employers in the area desperate for workers and we can now provide them with an even better service.

“It is extremely easy to register on the app and we still interview people face-to-face – via Facetime or similar technology, and this reassures employers.

“After it’s been downloaded the jobs are listed and people can click on vacancies and have work in seconds. It puts power literally in their hands.

“The app provides the same benefits that those who register within the branch receive.

“We have a refer-a-friend scheme and a temp of the month award, plus there are tips as well as careers and interview advice.

“We provide a route planner to help workers get to the job and it’s easy to send messages via the app so all parties involved can communicate easily.

“Clients and candidates across Northampton and surrounding areas are already using it and benefitting from it.”

The ‘Berry Recruitment Jobs’ app can be downloaded free from the Apple App store and Google Play Store.
