Colleague - Recruitment CRM

Recruitment software you've made; integrated, efficient, relevant, flexible engaging and easy to use. It’s what we all want from a recruitment CRM, isn’t it?
Daniel Cater
ICT Manager at Square One Resources

I have found Colleague to be a very reliable and flexible product; the options for customising it are aplenty and these are increasing with each build release. I've found it to be simple to administer, simple to use, and yet very powerful; as an IT Manager one of its strongest points is the openness of its back-end database and I'm yet to find a product that we can't integrate it with.


Colleague gives specialist recruiters an all-in-one system for managing the entire recruitment process – providing managers and consultants with the intelligence, integration, automation and workflow they need to do their job effectively and efficiently. Our clients include well-known names such as; Square One Resources, Advanced Resource Managers, InterQuest Group plc, Networkers International plc, First Point Group, Blue Skies, G2, and Whitehall Resources.
