What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, here’s what our customers have to say.

I have been using Chillifactor recruitment software for over two years now, and absolutely love it!  In my previous role I introduced the software to a large multi-national I was working for, where the authorisation process was complex and a continual source of friction. Kirsten and her team quickly adapted the system to the needs of that business, and to this day authorisations are well managed, and delays in getting offers to candidates have been dramatically reduced. Since establishing my own business, where recruitment is central to our offering, I use the software to ensure that clients are giving me the green light to proceed with each step of the process, and that my client accounts are well managed. This keeps them informed and safeguards me – especially when queries are later raised… I cannot speak highly enough of this innovative, cost-effective and service orientated solution.
Sandy Hayer

Director, Candid Recruitment

I’d recommend this software program to any SME’s who wanted to save money on recruitment; this provides you with all the tools you need to get the job done properly and effectively.
Rebecca Purdy

Director, The Generalist PR

Chilli Factor Recruitment Software is working fantastically well for me.  Life is much easier with this system!  Especially with this many jobs going all at once.
Catherine Brown

HR Advisor, EIS

Chilli Factor has made such a positive difference to our recruitment process, transforming the way we work. It has allowed us to streamline our recruitment process, improve overall visibility, empower proactive recruitment and engage stakeholders in the process. We have received positive feedback from both internal and external stakeholders as it has helped to provide a better customer experience which is essential for our branding. The Chilli Factor team has been extremely supportive and helpful, putting in a lot of time and effort to ensure the system is customised to Griffin’s needs!
Hayley Feeney

Talent Advisor, The Griffin's Food Company

I have been working with Chilli Factor now for over 8 months and find it to be an extremely user friendly recruitment tool. The programme ensures candidates go through a preferred process making it easy to follow up and manage candidate care, to manage all of the recruitment stages and keep all candidates details in a central location to refer back to. The icons are easy to understand as I have been up-skilling branch manager’s on its use, it’s reporting functions make life easier at month end, and the centralised management of external promotional channels makes it a great one-stop shop. I would personally recommend Chilli Factor to any company wishing to centralise and improve their recruitment processes.
Jennifer Findlay


We put Chilli Factor in earlier this year and have had it in place for about 6 months. I have implemented a few eRecruitment systems in the pas,t and Chilli Factor was astounding simple and fast, with zero implementation cost. It is the ideal solution for a business with our size, turnover and type of workforce. We will use it for subsidiary businesses also. It is a simple, flexible, cost effective solution and the support service provided has been excellent, can’t fault it. We highly recommend Chilli Factor
