  • Remind your staff to follow-up clients
  • Manage recruitment tasks
  • Plan meetings within your agency

  • Segment recruitment clients for marketing
  • Client dashboard
  • Mobile app access so you can view your CRM when you’re out of the office
  • Create a simple applicant tracking system (ATS) using Notion


Do you need a Recruitment CRM?

CRM software ensures that you keep track of all your sales, service and marketing needs. By setting up a recruitment CRM, you can be confident that your team is keeping track of new leads, following up with customers, improving customer experience in your agency and delivering the best service possible. You can do some follow-up using your memory & your address book but this quickly becomes impossible when you’re managing dozens or hundreds of recruitment clients. That’s where having your own custom recruitment CRM provides the biggest benefit.

  • Nimble CRM – a comprehensive recruitment CRM that excels in lead generation through online connections.




💰 Can you create a free CRM using Notion?

Yes, you can create a free CRM on the Notion Personal plan. You’ll have a limit of up to 1,000 blocks of content (paragraphs of text, to-do item, image etc). If you’ve got a smaller number of clients, you can build your own free CRM using Notion. Upgrade your Notion plan to the Team plan if you need more blocks or more advanced permissions.


📓 What are the limitations to using Notion as a simple CRM?

All CRMs have limitations and using Notion as your recruitment CRM comes with constraints that might not suit all users. As you’re custom-building your CRM, you need to ensure that the framework is set up properly and a badly-configured CRM can cause plenty of issues down the track. Notion has limited features around scheduling, emailing, call recording, web-clipping, universal search and note-style but these may not be features that you need for your small business.
