What would a recruitment system look like for it to have been designed in 2014? That’s the question that Keith Potts, founder of job board Jobsite and digital recruitment group Evenbase, and his equally entrepreneurial brothers Eric and Graham asked themselves. 

The answer was Talenetic, a cloud-based vacancy and talent management system for a new world “increasingly impacted by social and mobile”, Keith Potts told Recruiter in an exclusive interview.  

Potts described the product as “super-scalable recruitment solutions” designed to be used by “anyone in recruitment”. The system will list and post vacancies across a variety of platforms. “To help with this, we provide the recruiter with their own mobile-friendly job board to attract talent from their own website or mobile platform,” he said.

“One new candidate attraction feature we have built in is for recruiters to easily see candidates in their social network who match each vacancy. I think recruiter networks are going to increasingly play an important role in recruiting.”

The system will next manage all the candidate applications through an application management system, then allow recruiters to search or browse through candidates who have previously applied to earlier jobs. 

Talenetic’s underlying search product is open source technology that Potts described as “state of the art search stuff” being used by major ecommerce and social media sites. “We are putting that power into the hands of everyone,” he said.

Talenetic refers to the movement of talent and is Potts’ first recruitment venture since leaving Evenbase last year. Keith is the company’s chief executive (CEO), Graham the chief technical officer (CTO) and Eric is commercial director. Rounding out the board is Partha Sarathy, director of emerging markets. 

“It’s been so refreshing for us, starting from a blank sheet of paper and overlaying our experience of the market,” Keith said. “We remain as hungry and as excited as ever… so hopefully our story will continue to grow.”

Talenetic will first be rolled out to the UK and Indian markets.
