Prior to Vacancysoft forming in 2006, there was no solution available for recruiters to allow them to track client vacancy activity directly. As a result recruiters would resort to manually checking websites themselves or would assign an administrator to do so, but would struggle to monitor their market effectively.
James Chaplin, CEO & founder spotted the opportunity due to his relationships with people in recruitment and assembled a team to create a prototype. Seed clients backed James and within 6 months his team had rolled out the first beta version.
At first Vacancysoft was designed as a bespoke tool for a handful of leading recruiters, who saw the potential of a comprehensive market intelligence solution.
The business grew steadily throughout 2006-2008 winning several key accounts, unfortunately when the global financial crisis hit a new approach was needed. James subsequently moved the operations to Warsaw, Poland and built the business from there.
Since 2012 we have maintained annual growth of 50%+ and are now used by over forty of the largest fifty global recruitment firms in the UK. Our next steps will be to meet our clients needs internationally.
