Volcanic will launch its GDPR-compliant solution on stand C25 at the Recruitment Agency Expo this week in Birmingham. This industry first brings a cost-effective response to the GDPR to recruitment agencies and job board providers in a fully featured website.
With recruiters looking to get their new website live fast, the Volcanic SaaS model supports the industry by offering a ready-to-go solution with no upfront investment, no contract tie-ins and a simple monthly fee.
The Volcanic platform makes market leading technology accessible to the whole recruitment industry, with a programme of ongoing innovation deploying best-in-class system upgrades across every website on the platform. Volcanic partners with some of the biggest global brands in recruitment to offer integration with leading technologies such as Bullhorn and Broadbean as standard.
Neil Pickstone, co-founder at Volcanic, said: “Today, when someone applies for a job, anywhere in the world, they’re likely to use Volcanic digital technology without even realising.
“Looking to the future, the GDPR has changed the way that commercial technology will be built, as all new tech must be designed with people’s data privacy in mind. This has a huge impact on the recruitment sector in terms of managing the volume and security of candidate data - as well as being able to report on every action that has happened to that data as required by the new laws.”
Volcanic is adopting a candidate-first approach to GDPR-compliance. The Volcanic dashboard allows candidates to self-manage their data, which responds to the core GDPR principle of privacy by design by putting data control into the hands of each individual.
Volcanic is supporting the recruitment industry towards GDPR compliance ahead of the May 2018 deadine.
