Manage recruiting agencies in Greenhouse Recruiting


If you work with agencies, Greenhouse Recruiting includes an agency portal where agencies can submit candidates in one convenient location. This portal is a simplified version of the Greenhouse Recruiting dashboard where the recruiter can see a limited list of their candidates and available jobs.

The agency portal

When recruiter logs into the agency portal, they will only be able to view whether candidates they referred for their assigned jobs is active, rejected, or hired. 


Site Admins can allow recruiters to see the interview stage under Configure Configured_Icon.png > Permissions Policies. Giving recruiters access to this information will reduce the amount of communication required to keep agency recruiters up-to-date.



Identify an agency submission

During application review, an agency-referred candidate will be marked in the top right corner of their candidate profile.


Additionally, a list of available candidates can be found under the Sourcing tab.


Job Admins can configure additional notifications so that specific users receive emails when an agency recruiter submits a candidate for a job. This setup is completed on the Notifications tab on the Job Setup page.
