Vendors are external consultants/agencies who help you recruit. You can add vendors to Freshteam as ‘Sourcing Partners’. Sourcing Partners have the ability to add candidates to specific jobs and track their hiring status.
Adding a new vendor
Go to Settings>Vendors. There’s an 'Add new vendor' button in the middle of the screen that you should click.
When you do, a form slides out from the right. This form contains details like the Vendor’s name, their email, the source and source category that you’d like to define for them. The Source and Source Category which you fill here, gets automatically assigned to all the candidates added by the vendor. This will help you filter out the candidates added by the vendor, when you are scheduling interviews, viewing reports etc. You can also choose to display offer information to a vendor.
Clicking on ‘Add’ adds them to your account and sends them an activation email as well.
Once you’ve added a vendor to the system, you’ll also want to specify for which jobs they’re going to be sourcing candidates.
Adding a vendor to a job
Go to Recruit>Jobs and choose the job posting for which the vendor is going to recruit. Click on ‘View job details’ near the job title. Scroll to the end of the ‘Add and attract candidates’ for the ‘Add a vendor’ button.
When you click on the button, you’ll be able to search for the vendor and add them as a sourcing partner for the job posting.
