Staffgroup managing director Saman Tabrizi oversees both of Staffgroup’s companies – Eurostaff and Earthstaff in London, Berlin, Hamburg and now Utrecht.

• Recruitment software provider FastTrack360 has announced the UK launch of its Connect Integration. The integration means FastTrack360 can come in three parts – time, pay, bill, as opposed to four parts – recruit, time, pay, bill. The move also increases flexibility so the product can integrate with leading CRMs (customer relationship management software).

• Artificial emotional intelligence specialist Human has developed new software that it claims has the ability to read candidates’ subliminal facial expressions live during job interviews.

The software, developed by data scientists, then converts these expressions into a range of emotions and specific characteristic traits in real time. CEO and founder of Human Yi Xu revealed the patent-pending software works by using partial facial recognition, camera angles and pixilated raw data to reveal typical personality traits.

• Hospitality job site has launched. The site provides clients with candidate alerts, notifying them when a candidate that meets their criteria has uploaded their CV, and thus is actively looking. The site also sends job alerts by email to all registered jobseekers that have created bespoke search criteria. It also offers clients an area to search CVs from a CV database.

Network Rail has launched a Snapchat filter as part of its campaign to attract talent into the rail industry. The filter, available at stations along the East Coast and Midland main lines, allow users of the social media platform to pose while wearing a blue hard hat when inside Newcastle, Leeds, York, Doncaster and Sheffield stations.

The firm says the move is part of its drive to change the perception of the rail industry among young people and raise awareness of the number of railway apprenticeships available, particularly across the North of the country.

• Global staffing group Phaidon International has launched a new US office in Dallas, Texas. The firm, which already has offices in New York, San Francisco, Boston and Chicago, is moving into 100 Crescent Court, between Victory Park and Uptown Dallas.
