Client Testimonials

“We started using Applied to recruit for our internship programme, but on experiencing the radically different (and exponentially more enjoyable) process, we have started creating all of our roles on Applied. With tailored assessment criteria and blind review baked into the platform, finding people with the right aptitude as well as experience is seriously fast-tracked”

– Charlotte Hillenbrand, Director, Made by Many

“Not only did Applied remove the paper CV sift, it saved us huge amounts of time. It also enabled us to attract and select candidates from diverse, non-sport backgrounds who were perfect for this role.”

– Rosie Ranganathan, People Director, ECB

“We’ve loved the experience with Applied. It can be really tricky to handle high volumes like we get in the scheme. Applied’s simple process and scoring system allowed us to shortlist in an easy, totally objective way. As a result, we’ve met with some brilliant candidates outside of our industry and hired excellent people”

– Ellie Harlow, Resourcing Manager, Penguin Random House
