Advance is a AI-driven SaaS hiring platform for entry-level and graduate talent. In a nutshell, we utilize artificial intelligence to empower entrepreneurs and internal talent managers to source, screen and hire top quality young professionals in a matter of days.
Our partner companies share jobs with a large and diverse candidate pool of entry-level talent seeking opportunities in the UK. Companies specify who they want to target before instantly receiving a shortlist of exceptionally suited candidates ranked according to their suitability for the job and readiness to interview which they can invite to apply to the role right away.
Companies typically start receiving applications as well as responses to invitations-to-apply within a few days. Hiring managers use our simple interface to quickly review and filter applicants and make decisions on who to advance based on a more wholesome understanding of who the applicant is - leveraging data that cannot be reflected in a CV alone - and presenting it in a way that helps decision making to be more fair and consistent.
Our proprietary technology utilizes a next generation AI-based recommendation engine that takes into account what the company consider to be the ideal candidate and leverages feedback to better rank candidates; while at the same time applying warning signs should the AI identify bias in targeting or selection. This helps companies to automate and cut out parts of the hiring process that are both hugely time consuming and leave room for human error; while empowering hiring managers to spend their time on building relationships and advancing candidates that are highly relevant, engaged and ready-to-interview.
By continuously collecting bite-sized snippets of feedback from companies and the candidates that they interview, we are able to learn about how to deliver better suited candidates to our clients, faster.
