Enable LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC)

Permissions: Job Admin and above, who is also a LinkedIn contract administrator

Product tier: Available to all subscription tiers

For members of your team that heavily use LinkedIn Recruiter, we have teamed up with LinkedIn to build LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC), an integration that allows users to leverage their LinkedIn Recruiter accounts directly within the Greenhouse dashboard. LinkedIn RSC allows you to seamlessly access consistent, real-time candidate data across LinkedIn Recruiter and Greenhouse Recruiting to streamline sourcing and candidate management all on one platform.

Note: Enabling the Greenhouse Recruiting / LinkedIn RSC integration is a one time set-up for your entire organization. Once enabled, each user who wishes to use the integration in your organization will need to connect their respective Greenhouse user accounts to LinkedIn Recruiter.

Activate LinkedIn RSC integration in Greenhouse Recruiting

Note: LinkedIn RSC is not compatible with the Safari internet browser. Be sure you are logged into Greenhouse Recruiting with a supported browser type before attempting to enable the integration. Please view LinkedIn's support page to learn more.

Click the Ellipsis icon ellipsis.png on your navigation bar and select Integrations from the dropdown menu.


Search for LinkedIn and click on LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect in the results list.


Select Request on the Request an Integration window. 

Note: If you don't see the Request button as pictured below, make sure you're signed into your LinkedIn account in the same browser where you're using Greenhouse Recruiting.


The Request button will change to read Notify Partner after your request has been sent. It takes an estimated 10 seconds for Greenhouse to process your request.

Note: To confirm that we have processed your request, click Notify Partner and refresh the page. When your request is finished processing the button will read Partner Ready.


Activate Greenhouse Recruiting in LinkedIn Recruiter 

Note: If it is your first time accessing LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC), follow the LinkedIn prompts to complete your setup. Use the steps below to update an existing integration.  

The next step to setting up the LinkedIn RSC integration is to connect LinkedIn Recruiter to Greenhouse Recruiting. Navigate to your LinkedIn Recruiter Account page and hover over your image in the upper right-hand corner. Select Settings from the dropdown menu.


From the Settings page, click ATS integration from the left-hand panel.


Locate the name of your organization from the subsequent list and click Edit inline with the organization name.


Enable Contract Level access or Company Level access as needed. For details on what each of these feature level access means, click here.

Click Save when finished.


Note: If you have multiple Recruiter dashboards, each Admin must sign in and enable Contract Level access from their specific Dashboard.

The status of the integration in Greenhouse Recruiting shows the status at the contract that you are currently logged into. This means that when Contract Level access has been activated in LinkedIn Recruiter Admin settings, the status will display Enabled.


When Company Level access is activated but Contract level access is not, the status of the integration in your status stays as Partner Ready, but now states that Company Level access has been enabled.



Connect Greenhouse User Account to LinkedIn Recruiter  

Note: The final step to connect individual Greenhouse Recruiting accounts to LinkedIn Recruiter will need to be done by anyone who wishes to utilize the integration.

After LinkedIn RSC has been set up by a user with Site Admin level  permissions, users can connect their individual user accounts to LinkedIn Recruiter. Through this connectio, users will be able to streamline the sourcing and management of candidates across both systems all on one platform. 

Navigate to the upper right-hand corner of your Greenhouse account and click on your Name.  Click on Account Settings from the dropdown menu.


From the Account Settings page, navigate to LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect and click on Connect. A new page will ask you if the information is correct. If it is, click Allow. Your user account is now connected to LinkedIn Recruiter and you are will be able to access information seamlessly across both systems.
