A new app, 56Bridge, which promises to redefine the process of recruitment and reduce its cost by as much as 80 per cent, has been unveiled.

Created by BridgeGap Consults Limited, the app manages recruitment plans end-to-end, giving both candidates and recruiters the flexibility lacking in the traditional format.

For a prospective employee, the process starts with creating profiles/generating CV, taking an employment test, browsing for a suitable job and ends with taking job interviews from anywhere in the world.

On the other hand, an employer could use the app to receive pre-recorded interview videos from prospects, shortlist candidates and conduct employment tests.

56Bridge comes in five subscription plans – free, starter, pro, premium and enterprise packages – depending on each organisation’s human resource need.

Group Head of Operations of BridgeGap, Mosun Obembe, said the app could also be used for live interviews, ranging from test to final assessment. It is also suitable for regular and executive hiring, the development team said.

Obembe stressed that the product would change the way job assessments are conducted in Nigeria and beyond. She added that while it takes off in Nigeria, it aspires to reach out to other African countries in no distant time.

According to Obembe, the interview video could be stored in the plug-in video library and retrievable subsequently for assessment.

Director, Marketing and Business Development, Chiedozie Egbe, described the solution as a game changer in human resource practice. He said automation, which the app offers, is the solution to the expensive and laborious old method.

Edge recalled the burden traditional recruitment imposed on job seekers and recruitment experts, saying the option was no longer sustainable in the face of a fast-changing world.
