The Challenge

In a competitive marketplace you need to ensure the tools at your disposal help drive your business forward, not hold it back.

With an eye on budgets, Tradestaff was being challenged with rising costs from its incumbent, but alongside the price hikes, could see no visible return. Product updates and system developments weren’t forthcoming, and more so there was a distinct lack of support, as well as frustrations with the job posting process for their consultants.

Tradestaff needed a partner and a platform that matched the aspirations and experience befitting the investment.


  • Integration with the Bullhorn platform
  • A solution that matched the necessary workflows that were critical for the business
  • Enabling multiple branches to function with bespoke individual market-critical requirements
  • Clear return on the investment made into the the technology platform
  • Outstanding customer support

Exceeding Expectations

After an extensive evaluation process, idibu delivered a solution that met all Tradestaff’s business objectives.

And after moving to idibu, Claire Duffield, Business Systems Manager at Tradestaff reported the biggest benefit was the intuitive posting process as well as time saved on training and onboarding new consultants.

“idibu’s Bullhorn integration is so intuitive, it looks great and has a modern interface which the consultants love”

“The ease of adoptions for our consultants was a very pleasant surprise and if we ever need to contact idibu we always receive a detailed reply”

“With our previous supplier everything seemed very time consuming with a lot of unnecessary clicks, we needed our consultants day to day experience to be seamless and more streamlined”

“idibu’s technology is modern, lean and clean and without them being able to work with other partners in the Bullhorn Marketplace to implement our unique processes we wouldn't have been able to move forward, but they exceeded our expectations.”

“Existing product updates are always greatly received but it already does what it says on the tin.”

Tradestaff are now able to post and manage adverts directly from within Bullhorn, save time and reduce costs with idibu.

The support and customer service we receive from idibu has been honest, friendly and personable. We have always felt valued from the first meeting at Bullhorn Engage, during the onboarding processes and as a client. “
