The challenge:

Newton work hand in hand with their clients, delivering at the coalface. Together, they crack some of the largest and most complex challenges in the public and private sectors, by pinpointing and implementing the changes that will create the greatest impact.

 

Newton was looking for an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) that could handle the increasing volume and complexity of their graduate recruitment process. Faced with 20% annual growth targets, they sought an ATS with the capacity to meet these demands.

“I have been able to continuously export data in any and every format to support my analyses, and have appreciated the continued dedicated and deeply attentive support from the Oleeo team in making possible a variety of time-saving functions in the system. The range of functionality in Oleeo has been integral to my role, and I can’t wait to understand more about the system to synthesise the goals of my team and the business as a whole!”
