Streamline Your Recruitment Process with the Cloud


Nonprofit employees often have to wear many hats. Recruiting volunteers and new employees is both time consuming and often overlooked and underutilized. Using cloud computing IT to automize processes can be the answer to your recruitment problems.

Increase Productivity

We have all been ready to send a file out and realized that we're not sure if it is the most up-to-date version. It always seems like at those moments it is impossible to get in touch with your colleagues.  If your documents are stored in the cloud, you’ll know:

  • Which version is the most recent.
  • Who edited it last. 
  • You’ll know if, and when, your colleagues have made amendments.
  • You’ll be more confident that you send people the correct files.

Faster Response Time 

If you’re able to find all the documents you need to do your job easily, you’ll be able to respond faster.

Qualified candidates want speedy action, the most qualified candidates will be proactive and send out their resume to a multitude of nonprofits. They can become impatient if they don’t think you’re putting them forward for the right vacancies quickly enough. If that happens, they could decide to choose one of your competitors.

Every one wants things done immediately these days. Use cloud-based solutions and you’ll be able to deal with vacancies and with candidates faster. You’ll be more likely to meet every one’s expectations, too.

Increased Cyber Security

Do you have a memory stick in your briefcase?  Do you move candidates’ information around from your laptop to your office’s IT systems, or from your laptop to someone else’s tablet computer, via a memory stick?  It’s easy, isn’t it? It’s also easy to drop a memory stick, to lose it or to have it stolen.

Your agency has made commitments to candidates and to clients under the Data Protection Act. How would you feel, if you were the one responsible for leaking sensitive information about your clients or candidates? What might such a breach of security cost your agency in terms of reputation, damages or fines? 

Don’t take the risk. Store that sensitive data in the cloud. Information is easier to access that way.  It’s safer in the cloud, too.


Have you ever had to ask a client or a candidate to send something over to you for a second time?  It doesn’t matter how plausible your excuse is. When you make your request, you inconvenience your client and you diminish people’s trust in your capabilities.

Use cloud computing IT solutions, and you know that all your information is stored in a well-ordered manner away from your office. You also have a back-up copy of your files held locally in your office. That means you should be able to locate what you need. Your cloud computing systems will help you to create a more professional image of yourself and of your agency, because you are more professional. 


Recruiters often think of IT support and cloud computing as technical issues. Often overlooked, cloud-based IT systems allows you to  streamline the recruitment process. Resulting in better, more productive employees and volunteers.
