About Clearfield

Clearfield are specialist construction sector recruiters helping contractors, employers, and workers to deliver on projects. They specialise in the built environment sector, incorporating all aspects of construction and fitting.


The Challenge

Clearfield was looking for a way to optimise its database of candidates as it was only retaining a handful of applicants out of the many that would apply for each role. Achieving this would not only provide a better talent pool for future roles but would maximise their job advert spend and accelerate time to hire.

It was obvious that the solution Clearfield needed was the ability to automate the applicant handling process and acquire a seamless integration with their RDB database.


  • Automate the applicant handling process
  • Seamless integration with the RDB database
  • Reduce the manual and repetitive posting of jobs
  • Easy-to-use solution for consultants

Exceeding Expectations

idibu stood out as offering superior RDB integration and a simple and easy to use platform that required little training, meaning consultants could start benefitting quickly.

Clearfield also deduced that idibu represented the best proposition based on price point and customer service.

Thomas Ingram from Clearfield says: “idibu represented real value for money. The solution has everything we need and is really user friendly, so we have been able to see the benefits immediately.”

Clearfield now use idibu’s traffic light system to quickly progress ideal candidates forward for specific roles and to automatically add other quality candidates directly into RDB. This means they are building up an industry-leading talent pool for future job roles. In turn, this will ensure a better return on job advert spending and reduce time to hire. idibu’s autoresponders also ensure that candidates are immediately informed of their application status, keeping communication consistent and building trust with the Clearfield brand.

Job posting across multiple channels has now been automated and Clearfield consultants can see all applicants in one place. With the need to copy and paste job adverts to different platforms eliminated, Clearview have also significantly reduced manual admin and keying errors.

Moreover, Clearfield’s consultants can now post jobs and manage applicants without having to log into a separate portal, with this managed by Idibu inside the RDB platform. The onboarding and support from idibu ensured that all consultants quickly achieved a high level of competency with the software so efficiencies could be realised without delay.

Thomas Ingram says: “idibu is an exceptional tool and is a must have for businesses looking for an easy and simple advertising platform.”
