Octo Recruitment Technology - streamlining your recruitment process

We want to make recruitment simple, straightforward and transparent. Octo online recruitment software has been developed alongside HR professionals to be the ultimate central hub for hiring. It’s like the best ATS (Applicant Tracking System) you can imagine - only better!

We find out exactly what you need from your recruitment technology and give you the definitive software solution. Octo never stands still – we’re constantly adding new features to our cloud based platform.
