Easy Web Recruitment — the U.K.'s leading flat-fee Internet recruitment service

Their story

While growing fast the main problem is to make the team as efficient as possible with regards to systems and processes

EasyWebRecruitment.com offers a low-cost, flat-fee alternative to traditional recruitment agencies. “When we started our business, we looked at bringing together a range of Internet services and software - and backing that up with an experienced and well-trained team. As a result, we are now the U.K.'s leading Internet recruitment service, with over 400 clients, including some of the U.K.'s largest employers, like Tesco,” says Adrian McDonagh, Managing Director at Easy Web Recruitment.


When the company is growing fast, and to keep up with this pace, the team needs to stay very productive. At this point, project management tool helps schedule and record tasks for the organization. “I researched lots of project management products online, including the obvious ones like Basecamp. We have also tried working on shared spreadsheets in Google Docs, but this option turned out to be too simplistic to fulfill our needs. Our major challenge with all the project management systems was adoption,” says Adrian McDonagh.

The team had been already working very hard, and management did not want to add something to their day that would take a lot of time and training to get to grips with, or add to their administrative burden. It was completely different with Wrike. “I was pleased to see that, once I showed the team how simple Wrike was, even the more skeptical members of the team were quickly convinced,” says McDonagh.

I would say that Wrike is the only piece of software we have ever implemented in house with complete approval and support of 100% of staff from Day 1.

Their victory

Now all sorts of projects are tracked in Wrike from the recruitment assignments to marketing campaigns

Everyone is updated on the changes in the plans and can see the progress of other team members. The biggest benefit Wrike gave EasyWebRecruitment.com is the ability to dig important tasks out of our mailboxes and turn them into action items that are shared with the whole team.

“Our team of 15 is placed in one building, but people are distributed between two floors,” says McDonagh. “This is one of the main reasons we know we need a system like Wrike, so everyone can instantly see the progress with every task that is scheduled.” This real-time insight into each person's work is vital for delivering a highly efficient Internet recruitment service for their company`s clients.

“Thanks to this feature, when we rolled out Wrike, there was no additional administrative burden on the team, as they were already heavily reliant on sending emails to each other anyway,” says McDonagh.
