Export candidates to Recruitment Marketing

Once you have identified candidates from hireEZ's talent sourcing database who you would like to add to the Recruitment Marketing CRM, this can be achieved easily from within the hireEZ system.

Simply select one or more candidates from your hireEZ project, and select the option to "Export", and select "Clinch" as the system you would like to export the candidate to.

You will then be able to select how you would like to export them, as seen here:

When exporting, you can select to the following as the Application type:

  • Prospect not on a job - this will add the individual to the general candidate pool in Recruitment Marketing CRM
  • Candidate on a static list - this will assign the candidate to the selected static list within the Recruitment Marketing CRM.

In both cases, the following information (where available) will be exported to the newly created candidate record in Recruitment Marketing:

  • Name
  • Primary contact details - email & telephone number
  • Education history
  • Employment history
  • Skills
  • Tags assigned to the person in hireEZ
  • a PDF copy of their hireEZ profile

  • Add them to a static list
  • Add them to a sourcing board
  • Assign further tags
  • Send a consent email
  • Send them an SMS
