Recruitment disrupter predicts future skills firms will need


A disruptive recruitment company based in Blackburn has launched a machine learning algorithm capable of predicting the skills employers will need from future employees.

Tendo Jobs claims that to find the best talent it is essential that firms build a recruitment pipeline of potential candidates before they need them.

Its predictive analytics tech is capable of predicting the skills, knowledge and experience individual employers will need from future staff they are yet to recruit and can therefore match active job hunters directly with employers who are best suited to them.

Job hunters are then able to follow local companies and active employers so they are alerted as soon as they post vacancies on

Tendo Jobs MD Michael Cropper said: “This is a really exciting time for Tendo Jobs.

“Our advanced machine learning algorithms add a high level of sophistication to the platform which is designed to benefit employers and job hunters alike.”

Employers can create a free profile on the website and begin building their pipeline of potential candidates.Tendo Jobs is a tool for in-house recruiters and HR staff that links employers directly with job hunters to make recruitment as pain free and low cost as possible for companies.Cropper told a BusinessCloud event last year: “A high percentage of jobs are from the recruitment agencies on big websites.“They don’t typically tell you who the recruiting company are, what the salary is and where they are based. You’re stabbing in the dark and seeing what happens.“The recruitment sector is saying there’s not enough talent in the market; on the other hand, you’ve got 1.6 million people looking for jobs every month online.“So the issue is that connection point in between, where you need to bring those two people together.”
