Mark Dempsey, former Applicant Tracking System Manager for TMP, has joined Milkround Online to spearhead its Online Applications ATS product.
He takes on the role of Client Services Co-ordinator for Online Applications and will work with Milkround’s in-house IT team to develop a new cutting-edge ATS for release next year. He will work with OA clients such as NHS, NHS Scotland, Allianz and Glencore to produce the new product while supporting their current campaigns.
Dempsey brings five years’ experience of working in recruitment to Milkround, including three-and-a-half years as an ATS project manager.
He said: “I can’t wait to really get involved. The IT team here have the ideas, the experience and the skills to deliver an industry-best ATS. For clients, ATS has really come into its own over the last five years. It took a long time to convince them pen and paper was not needed for the application process, now ATS is the only way forward. Watch out for our new ATS over the next few months.”
Milkround Online Sales Director Jenni Wollerton said: “I’m delighted to have Mark join our team. He brings with him great ATS and recruitment industry knowledge and will be vital for the development of our Online Applications proposition. Our hope for the future is to bring to market the best-in-class ATS.
“Until then, clients can still book packages with our Online Applications offering including a pre-screener, competency based questionnaires, interview/assessment centre self-scheduling and complete integration with the leading online test providers all of which can be tailored to meet individual needs and incorporated seamlessly into external sites.
“The ATS system itself is extremely simple for recruiters to use and offers equal opportunities monitoring with access to statistics and reports for current campaigns all with the ability to export candidate data directly into excel and word formats.”
