Building a role is the first thing you'll do with Applied!
There are many different biases that can affect the quality and diversity of your candidate pool while building a role. Bias can affect the words that you use or the prerequisites that you ask for in the job description, the details that you give about the position (e.g. location, package, team) or the type of information that you ask candidates to provide when applying for the role. If you set a deadline or not, or the day of the week that you set as a deadline can influence candidates' behaviour, which at the end can affect your recruitment goals.
The Applied Role Builder makes it simple to set the 'rules of the game' that minimise bias throughout your recruiting. And we've put all the effort so this building stage becomes as simple and intuitive as possible.
For each role you build, you'll be able to:
Use our gendered language and reading burden tools to create smarter and more inclusive job descriptions. To get richer insights, you can also complement these built-in tools with Applied's stand-alone Job Description Analysis Tool.
Set the essential details of the job that will help you save time during future recruiting stages.
