Mike Wilkshire spearheads recruitment efforts of technical staff to the Industrial & Engineering industries at RGF and sits in a team of five. Veremark had reached out to RGF and provided an in-person demo where “initial credits were provided” for use after.
“Historically, we always did referencing ourselves, manually,” said Mike.
The biggest pain point with this method was “getting hold of referees as we often had to make three, four or five attempts which became very time-consuming.”
Mike had previously been aware of automated reference check softwares but had never used such a solution before.
“We didn’t take long at all to get up and running”with Veremark,” commented Mike.
His team alongside a few other teams started using Veremark soon after the initial sales demo.
"On average, Mike manages up to 20 candidates per month equating to up to 60 reference checks to be done in that period".
Mike shared, “It’s mandatory in our team that we conduct at least two reference checks with our candidates.”
