skeeled, a fast-growing Luxembourg technology start up, is today launching its innovative, AI-based predictive talent acquisition software in the UK to make it easier, faster and more efficient for employers and recruiters to attract, select and hire the right talent.
The biggest advantage of skeeled’s software is the fact it automates the early and time-consuming and resource intensive steps of the recruitment process: the publishing of offers, the screening of CVs, the scheduling of first phone interviews and face-to-face interviews, saving recruiters and employers significant time and money. The platform’s predictive AI technology accurately screens candidate profiles and ranks and evaluates applicants against an employer’s job specification, selecting only candidates that meet and match the requirements.
Candidates can also use the system to upload their CVs and post short videos and undertake pre-employment tests that assess their personality, skills, motivation and attitude, which gives employers more information and an in-depth and holistic view of each applicant.
The system includes an Applicant Tracking System which enables interviewers, recruiters and employers to collaborate and communicate throughout the hiring process and follow up effectively with applicants to ensure a good candidate experience.
Established in 2014 in Luxembourg, skeeled has achieved fast growth and success. In 2019, the company achieved over 120% growth of turnover compared with the previous year.
In June, the company launched Version 3 of its software and it has ambitious growth plans which includes establishing a foothold in the UK market and doubling its workforce in Luxembourg and Porto from 25 to 50.
Nicolas Speeckaert, skeeled’s Co-Founder and Managing Partner says, “Recruiting and acquiring talent is a fundamental process for companies and we see major growth potential in the UK. UK companies are seeking innovative recruitment solutions that save them time and money – particularly in the sourcing and selection of candidates and this demand has increased since the onset of Covid-19.”
“Companies emerging from this crisis want to be more agile, to reduce costs, streamline their processes and view technology as a key enabler. Many firms have been using video to interview and onboard new starters and found it convenient and cost effective, so we are looking forward to introducing them to the benefits of skeeled.”
Speeckaert’s views are supported by new a research report, The Future of Work Survey from Cielo, a Recruitment Process Outsourcing provider, amongst international business leaders which highlighted that two thirds of businesses have successfully interviewed and onboarded new starters during the Covid-19 outbreak and that 82% of hiring managers will continue to interview by video once the pandemic is over[i].
skeeled has also recently partnered with VONQ, a European smart recruitment technology provider, to allow users of skeeled to set up job advertising campaigns using VONQ’s huge network – which incorporates 2,000 global channels – by combining the publication of job offers and purchasing marketing campaigns in the press.
The company has also joined forces with the international Indeed group and has integrated Indeed’s technology in the platform to automate the publication of job offers.
