HRS Powered by RecruitmentForce

Built for recruiters by recruiters, HRS has a long standing history with recruitment.


A recruiters friend, the HRS story so far
The Telegraph Business Club recently caught up with HRS as part of their Human Capital & Technology series.

Built for recruiters by recruiters, HRS is software tailored to an industry that its founding team knows extremely well. Coming from a background in recruitment himself, Carl Holst-Roness realised there wasn’t a system to suit his needs and, having spotted this gap in the market, developed one himself.

Seeking further investment, he teamed up with Eldon Jobe whom, as an early customer and user of the software, understood the true power and benefits of HRS in managing recruitment workflow. Here, they tell the Telegraph Business Club how they have grown the business, building a client base, much of it organically through word of mouth.
