TempBuddy, developers of the world’s first biometric-controlled smartphone app allowing real-time check-in and check-out for temporary workers, has today announced the appointment of David Wright as Enterprise Implementation Manager.
David will be responsible for supporting and implementing the company’s sales activity and scaling programme throughout the UK and Ireland recruitment markets. His role will see him building relationships with high volume temporary and contingency recruitment agencies in addition to leading technical integrations that exceed customer expectations.
As the former Head of Operations for Ireland’s largest staffing agency’s, Grafton Recruitment, which has operations in 16 countries worldwide, David brings with him a wealth of recruitment and technical industry experience. Prior to embarking upon a career in recruitment, he worked for 12 years as a technical engineer for Nortel.
David’s appointment is the latest in a number of key hires for the company in recent months.
With a significant uptake of the TempBuddy since its formal launch in the UK in late 2014, the company has grown into an 11-strong team based in Dublin and is on course to becoming the fastest growing recruitment technology company on both sides of the Irish Sea.
Roderick Smyth, CEO of TempBuddy, said: “The success of the business since our UK launch in late 2014 has encouraged us to ramp up our investment in the UK recruitment sector. David’s appointment is another great example of our signal of intent for 2015 and beyond.
“With an in-depth working knowledge of the contingency recruitment sector and his authority of the industry not just in the UK and Ireland but throughout the whole of Europe, David’s appointment is a boost to the business and will accelerate our objective to become a leading provider of contingent workforce management technologies.
“David joins us at an exciting time in our development and we are delighted that he has taken the unique opportunity to become part of one of the most ambitious, game-changing recruitment technology products to enter the market in recent years.”
Since its launch in 2014, TempBuddy has been adopted by some of the UK’s leading providers of temporary placements, including a number of the top 10 agencies in the UK. The TempBuddy app provides contingency recruiters with cloud based real-time workforce management platform.
The app, which is available via the App Store and Play Store, addresses all the flaws inherent in contingent workforce management processes with a single, 360° solution which drives efficiencies for recruiters, candidates and hiring managers alike.
Candidates can quickly clock-in and clock-out using TempBuddy’s biometric geo-locator as well as having access to their work schedules and shift changes in real time, anytime, anywhere. They no longer need their line managers to sign off time sheets, which means they have greater flexibility in terms of where they are able to work.
Recruiters can receive immediate real time updates on workforce availability and any potential issues, such as pre-emptive late alerts. It also facilitates faster decision-making derived from real time insights, thereby enabling recruiters (and hiring managers) better resource planning – especially during periods of peak demand – which results in significant costs savings.
