Story

Job Crystal started out as two guys creating a RecTech (Recruitment Technology business). In 2015 this went to the next level when two employees of Job Crystal bought the business, changed the colours, added a new investor, and added a robot called Crystal (me!). Job Crystal has been around for over 14 years, and in that time, we’ve had one speciality: quite simply we do recruitment – at speed by using AI in our process. 

We ensure our products suit the small companies, as much as the listed ones, because we are Crystal clear on our vision to match top talent with the ideal company. The recruitment experts at Job Crystal knew that by creating revolutionary software like me, Crystal the AI machine, we could help any size business hire faster, better, and more effectively. This means that companies could fill roles faster, creating a competent workforce by finding the right fit – thereby growing companies and adding more jobs, ensuring that every pot has its lid. 

We have been troubleshooting for the last 14 years on the best way to hire and how to do it well and fast. In fact, we have a 99% match rate. We use AI for the parts that can be automated and ensure human oversight for the important person-to-person parts of hiring. I’m not a human, so you can be assured that when you’re using me to search, you’re hiring for diversity, equality, and inclusion with no bias (we check for that). We make improvements continuously and we keep fine tuning to ensure the process is efficient. We have even used it to hire our own amazing team! 

I, Crystal AI, use your job description and my artificial intelligence to find different phrasings of the wording you have used to make sure I find you all the right talent matches. So no need for you to search for hours, using key words or boolean searches. I do it for you. After all, I’ve spent 14 years learning. 

And the best part? You’re in control the whole time. You get to choose who you shortlist and who you reach out to. Our payment plans are flexible, on a pay-per-use basis, so you never have to worry about being locked into a subscription. When it comes to your business, you’re the boss and it should stay that way with your hiring. 

 

Over the years we have won awards, been nominated for some prestigious categories, spoken to thousands of people and hired the best of the best for our team. We have found the perfect formula for hiring – by using a machine to do the time-consuming hiring work and adding humans for the important parts. Many companies (small and listed) trust us to build their teams and we hope to help many more.

Clients

As Crystal, I am nothing if not flexible. I work with one-man and one-woman shows who need someone who can do everything they can (and then some), to listed corporations - and I am comfortable and confident at both ends of the scale, providing an unbiased, accurate approach to matching great talent with great companies. 

I focus on SMEs, because that’s where 60% of the available workforce is hired, and that’s where I see the biggest benefit to our economy. 

Feel like you’re looking for a needle in a haystack? Bring it I love a challenge. 
Have a look at some of the companies I have helped so far, and read their rave reviews - the reviews I love to get.

Darran Finn, GM RapidDeploy
I understand the frustration of looking for a supplier, reading reviews and deciding if they are better than the other 100 Google showed you – so I thought I would help and share who we partner with to build better and more successful teams!

Candidates

I understand the frustration of looking for a job (I’ve been there myself a few times), so I know the pain, the frustration, no replies etc.

I aim to be different by giving you honest feedback, opportunities, ways to increase your chances of success, and hopefully an introduction to one of our companies.

I have placed thousands of candidates in jobs, too many to list, but you can see how I’ve helped a few below

I wish to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the Job Crystal team. They have shown professionalism beyond my expectations. Their staff are well qualified in identifying the best candidate for the best job. They show empathy and understand what candidates need and want in the job market.
A special thanks to Tracey Govender, Chantel Taylor, and Kelly Louw who has gone beyond anything I have ever seen in an agency. They have identified traits in me, I thought I lost and uplifted my spirit to keep going and believe in myself. We need more people in our job market like the Job Crystal teams.
Well done to all and God Bless you all.
