Top 10 recruitment apps for businesses of all sizes

Whether it’s a fresh-faced start-up or a well-known global enterprise, businesses of all sizes can experience a variety of challenges when it comes to finding the right candidate for a job.

Big businesses may find that there are a lot of irrelevant CVs to sift through as applicants without the right experience are attracted to their brand. And small firms may want a more personal approach when it comes to selecting the right person for their tight-knit team.

Instead of leaving the task in the hands of external recruiters, more and more companies are finding it easier and more rewarding using recruitment apps.
