The Three Pillars of Jobtrain

As pioneers in the world of recruitment software, we have seen huge changes in HR, Recruitment, Talent Acquisition, and technology.

Our mission has stood the test of time. Today we are proud to partner with and deliver ATS software to diverse organisations from 200 – 170,000 employees across the Private, Public and Third sectors, both in the UK and internationally.

The three pillars are not a marketing slogan – they are a true reflection of our values and our focus. That is why it is etched into the glass that surrounds our meeting rooms; that is why it is painted onto our walls – and that is why it is built into the fabric of our offices. It is a true reflection of what we are and who we are – not just an aspirational statement of how we want to be seen.


We have a message painted on the wall as you enter the office “Don’t just be good – be brilliant.” Innovation is key to the success of what we do. We don’t want to develop shiny technology for the sake of it – we are passionate about developing solutions that deliver unparalleled benefits for our clients.

Our product and its wealth of functionality and flexibility is the result of over 20 years of delivering ATS solutions. The underpinning philosophy behind this is the teamwork and the belief that everyone has a say – ideas are not the preserve of the few. So, no matter whether you are a client, hiring manager, or a candidate, all can influence the future of the platform.


HR and Recruitment is in our DNA, with many of our team having come from a HR or Recruitment background and our founder and CEO, Chris, spent 12 years in an HR career before developing Jobtrain as a business.

This knowledge means that we develop our Talent Acquisition platform with the users in mind; we understand the challenges recruiters face and deliver solutions to solve these and provide support that is meaningful and informed.


We believe in software AND a service. The people element of our platform is just as important as the product and with over 20 years’ experience of delivering ATS solutions, you will be supported with a vast collective experience every step of the way.

Our Continuous Improvement Team are named that because that is their sole purpose; to make sure clients enjoy and realise success from using Jobtrain.
From scoping solutions, implementing them, and training users we work in partnership with our clients to ensure success.

Our dedicated Continuous Improvement Consultants focus on ensuring clients achieve their operational and strategic goals with Jobtrain – and our unique Talent Intelligence Unit are on hand to help clients get to grips with their valuable data to produce meaningful reports, and actionable insights from day-to-day operational data to board reporting. 

People helping people

The Jobtrain Foundation

Our values as a business reach well beyond our products and service, and this has inspired The Jobtrain Foundation. Established by our founders Chris and Alison, the Foundation donates a percentage of our licence fees each year to support local and national projects such as Homeless Project Manchester, Book Trust and many other initiatives. This commitment is not simply a financial one, we are actively involved in fundraising activities throughout the year, even helping to make and distribute hot meals to those in need in the local area.
