I'm trying to delete an agency. How do I do that?

Currently, you can deactivate (but not delete) agencies in Greenhouse.  There are two steps:

Step 1

First, you’ll need to deactivate all recruiters associated with the agency. To do this:

  • Click the Greenhouse logo at the top of the page to make sure you're on the all jobs dashboard, then click the Sourcing tab
  • Click Agencies
  • Click on the recruiter's name (not the edit pencil next to their name). This will open a page where you can manage the recruiter's access
  • Click Disable Recruiter, then confirm deactivation by clicking the Disable Recruiter button when prompted

  • Repeat this for all other recruiters associated with the agency

Step 2

Once you've deactivated all recruiters associated with the agency, you can proceed with deactivating the agency.  To do this:

  • While still on the Sourcing tab, click Agencies again
  • Hover your cursor over the name of the agency you'd like to deactivate
  • Click Make inactive, which should appear next to the edit pencil

That's it!

If you ever need to reactivate an agency, take the following steps:

  • Click the Sourcing tab
  • Click Agencies
  • Put a check in the box next to Include inactive agencies/recruiters
  • Click Make active

    Hello Katarzyna,

    Thank you for reaching out! To remove an agency recruiter from a particular job, you can follow these instructions:

    Click the Sourcing tab
    Click Agencies
    Click on the name of the agency recruiter you'd like to manage
    Click the Add/Remove Jobs button
    Select or deselect jobs as desired, and then click Save

    I hope this helps! Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions you may have.

    I would like to delete an agency and give them a standard profile. Disabling doesn't allow me to do this because the recruiter from the agency is already registered under their agency email.

    I'd like to allow our agency recruiter to view candidate profiles that are submitted through our careers page but I don't see a way to do that without giving them a standard profile.

    Any ideas?

    Hi - I would really like to delete my inactive agencies and recruiters. I had made a mistake and would rather these sources be removed for a clean start while I'm setting things up!

    I would like to delete/disable inactive agencies in Greenhouse. I'm only able to edit agency associate for a particular job.

    Hi Katie,

    Thanks so much for reaching out!

    You are not able to delete inactive agencies but you can certainly make them inactive.

    Take the following steps to disable an agency:
    -Go to the Sourcing tab
    -Select Agencies
    -Click into each individual recruiter for that Agency and disable them
    -After each recruiter has been disabled, you can then make the Agency inactive by hovering your mouse over the Agency name and choosing "Make Inactive"

    Hope this helps!
