Mystery Applicant shortlisted for prestigious technology award

UK based company Mystery Applicant has been shortlisted for the Recruiting Technology Start Up award at the ERE Recruitment Innovation summit to be held in Mountain View, California on 17th and 18th May. The event will be video streamed at

Competition was fierce with over 50 entries so this is a major achievement, especially as Mystery Applicant is the only European based company to be shortlisted to the final six.

Founders Nick Price and Mike Cook will be demonstrating the technology live to the judges in Mountain View, California this week with the chance to win the top prize of $10,000. Nick commented:
“We are proud to have been recognised in the HR innovation field globally so soon after our launch. We believe passionately in our product and our company so this is a great opportunity. We are already working with global organisations such as G4S and our software is a natural fit within recruitment for all companies.”

Nick continues:
“We live in a feedback society yet the one area that hasn’t had any measurable or tangible evidence to date is the candidate experience. Mystery Applicant was developed specifically to address this and to help employers analyse the recruitment experience they provide to all their candidates. It is an online software tool that measures the candidate experience in real time, providing valuable data to HR and recruitment leaders around the perceptions, motivations and experience that applicants have when they apply for a job. We take big data and put it into a user-friendly dashboard, allowing companies to monitor their employer brand and their recruitment processes. By giving candidates a voice we can show what is working really well and what can be improved.”
