How do I invite external recruiters to submit candidates for a job? [Annual]


As part of the Workable Annual plan, you can invite recruiters to upload candidates for a job via the job editor. When creating or editing a job, access the Find Candidates tab across the top of the screen. In this section, click Invite Recruiters:


Adding recruiters already in your Workable account

If the external recruiter is listed under the External Recruiters tab in your Account members settings, you’ll find their name in the dropdown menu to the left of the screen. Simply identify the name of the recruiter you’d like to work on this job and click ‘Invite Recruiter.’ They’ll be sent an email automatically with the details of the job and a link to add candidates directly via Workable.


Invite a new recruiter to Workable and the job

To add a completely new recruiter to Workable, click ‘Add a new recruiter’:


You’ll see the option to enter their name/email address and to preview the auto-generated invitation. This email message contains the details of the role and a unique link that they should use to sign up and access your account:


Once the external recruiter joins the account, they will then be able to upload candidates straight in the platform while having very restricted visibility and permissions.  

Note: If the external recruiter you've invited has not signed up through the link in the email, they will only be able to submit candidates by replying to the invitation email. In case they are confused or their resumes are not coming through properly, please instruct them to refer to "Using Workable as an External Recruiter" guide or ask them to contact us.
