Current Challenges in Security Recruitment

Candidate Attraction​

Candidate attraction can be challenging for security recruiters because of the licenses needed to operate.

Budget Restrictions

Budget restrictions mean using agencies to hire security staff becomes very costly over time, impacting budget and your most important KPIs.

Hiring in Volume

Usually multiple hires are needed at once. That means more time, budget and resources need to be allocated to the hiring process.

That's where occy comes in

occy is the end-to-end recruitment platform specifically built to help in-house security recruiters hire in volume. Hiring can be slow and costly, but occy gives you the tools to effectively hire again and again. Source candidates, automate processes, analyse performance and more – all from one system!
