Recruitive supports SMS recruiting
Sarah Dickens, marketing manager at Recruitive, commented, “As mobile devices continue to develop and we all become more and more reliant on them for both our work and social lives it’s becoming increasingly important that recruiters take advantage of the many benefits SMS has to offer.
“We are delighted to announce that we have joined forces with FireText to offer our clients the ability to send text messages to individuals or groups from within their candidate management account choosing from a selection of standard templates or setting up their own should they prefer.”
Dan Parker, marketing director at FireText, commented, “The power of using SMS as a communication tool should not be underestimated. The average person looks at their phone 150 times a day for various activities from checking their bank account to shopping online. 98% of all SMS messages sent are opened, 94% of these within 5 minutes of being received.”
Parker added, “SMS can offer recruiters a whole host of benefits including dramatically increasing the speed of which vacancies are filled. It is a great way of saving time, resources and ultimately money, but without losing that personal touch.”
