Recruitment platforms – request for experience and insights

Hi everyone

AFSA is currently using Aurion for recruitment, however we are looking to either broaden the functions in Aurion or transition to a new system that is more fit for purpose and provides more of a positive and streamlined user experience.

To assist, we are keen to get an understanding and some insights on:

  • What function do you use in Aurion i.e. request to recruit, interview scheduling, referee checks, SAC report, outcome notification, onboarding etc. and how you find these from a panel/recruitment officer perspective
  • What other systems do you use e.g. HireRoad, Page up etc. and what your experience is with these. What are the challenges? Would you recommend?


If you can either send your recommendations by replying to this post or emailing them to that would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards
