Who we are

Born out of passion for the service industry, Placed is a performance-driven talent attraction platform helping employers to reach the new generation of job seekers. We call them modern candidates.

Through the use of AI and our innovative technology, Placed's marketing-led talent acquisition approach drives engagement of job seekers and hiring success for employers.

Problems we solve

Low quality of applicants

Following Brexit, the pandemic and the increasing costs of running your business, attracting quality candidates for your teams has never been more important to sustain profitable growth. But the old strategy of “post and pray” is no longer effective to attract the right applicants for your jobs. Job seekers today have high expectations of instant and personalised recommendations and do not have the time for endless browsing. Through Placed’s industry-specific matching algorithm, we increase candidate engagement 7x and ensure only the right candidates see and apply for your roles.

Lack of application volume / Decreased volume of potential candidates

In order to reach a broader pool of candidates, it is essential to adapt to changing candidate behaviour. By 2025, the global workforce will predominantly consist of Gen Z and Millennials, comprising two-thirds of the workforce. Surprisingly, 83% of this generation shops on social media, and 40% rely on TikTok for their search needs instead of traditional search engines like Google. Job boards and printed ads in magazines are no longer their primary sources for job hunting. Placed understands these shifts and enables you to expand your candidate search by leveraging the channels that these candidates prefer and engage with daily.

Poor candidate experience

To convert candidate interest into actual applications, it is crucial to create an engaging and captivating candidate experience. In today's digital age, where 95% of candidates own smartphones, it is essential to provide a mobile-optimised experience. Additionally, 89% of candidates are more responsive to visual information. Placed offers an intuitive app that empowers employers to construct a compelling candidate journey using content, images, and videos. Showcase your brand values and effectively communicate to candidates why they should choose to apply to your organisation.

Missing out on passive candidates

Targeting the candidates of tomorrow is increasingly important, as today’s candidates are already gone. But knowing how to reach passive candidates can be a challenge. Our marketing-led approach gives your job ads a social makeover, attracting and engaging hidden talents that may not be ready to apply just yet. We help you maximise your brand awareness across a large network of channels and turn this into future opportunities for applicants.

Lack of application volume

In a competitive recruitment market, you need to know how to benchmark against others to improve. Accessing this data is often expensive or non-existence. With our reporting dashboard, you don’t only track your own performance but also are able to measure your results against what your competitors achieve.

Problems we solve

Low quality of applicants

After Brexit, the pandemic, and rising business costs, it's crucial to attract quality candidates for your teams, to sustain profitable growth. But, traditional "post and pray" strategies are no longer effective in attracting the right applicants. Nowadays, job seekers expect instant and personalised recommendations and don't have time for endless browsing.

Through Placed’s industry-specific matching algorithm, we increase candidate engagement 7x and ensure only the right candidates see and apply for your roles.

Lack of job reach

To reach more of the right candidates, it's crucial to adjust to their changing behaviour. By 2025, the majority of the global workforce will be made up of Generation Z and Millennials, that’s two-thirds of all workers! Surprisingly, 83% of this generation shops on social media, and 40% use TikTok instead of traditional search engines like Google when looking for something.

Job boards and printed ads in magazines are no longer their primary sources for job hunting. Placed understands these shifts and enables you to expand your candidate search by leveraging the channels that these candidates prefer and engage with daily.

Poor candidate experience

When attracting talent, it's crucial to create an engaging and appealing candidate experience that converts views into applications. The majority of modern candidates, around 95%, own a smartphone and expect everything they do to be mobile-friendly. Did you know, 89% of candidates respond better to visual information?

Through Placed’s intuitive app we allow employers to build an engaging candidate journey through content, images and videos - show off your brand values and educate candidates on why they should apply for your role.

Missing out on passive candidates

Reaching the candidates of tomorrow is crucial, why’s that? Today's candidates are already gone! Targeting passive candidates can be challenging.

Our marketing-led approach gives your job ads a social makeover, attracting and engaging hidden talent that may not be ready to apply just yet. We help you maximise your brand awareness across a large network of channels and turn this into opportunities for future applications.

Lack of benchmarking data

In a competitive job market, it's important to know how you compare to others in order to improve. However, accessing this data can be costly or challenging.

With our reporting dashboard, you don’t only track your own performance but also are able to measure your results against what your competitors achieve.

Too many systems for managers

Hiring managers have busy schedules, often juggling multiple tasks and responsibilities. We understand that managing different systems can be time-consuming.

PlacedAPI integrates with your existing system. Our candidate front-end experience lives on top of your ATS and is seamless to integrate.

We’re also able to list the company benefits that come with employment and give a fuller snapshot of the unique work cultures of each, thus differentiating ourselves from our competitors.
