A Look At SmartRecruiters's Free Recruiting Software

We love SmartRecruiters because their SmartStart plan is designed with small businesses in mind. Besides it being free of charge, SmartStart allows for an unlimited number of users, a perk Free ATSs rarely provide.

What's Inside

SmartRecruiters Review

SmartStart is the free version of SmartRecruiters talent acquisition service, specifically made for smaller businesses. You’ll have access to an unlimited number of users as well as a variety of services including multi-board job posting, scheduling management tools, candidate database management and one-click apply.

SmartStart’s unlimited user accessibility enables many hands to be a part of the hiring process, unlike many other free options. The service also offers one-click job postings on any of over 200 available job boards. Unfortunately SmartStart is limited to 10 active job postings at one time. If your team finds this is holding you back, there are different plans you can upgrade to.
