We've built and honed an extensive understanding of both candidate engagement and the technical support needed for successful recruitment processes, working with some of the biggest names and most challenging of requirements.

Having been delivering dedicated digital recruitment solutions for well over 20 years, the founding team at 3D MarComms know a thing or two about effective and efficient recruitment, which is why they built HARBOUR ATS. An SaaS (Software as a Service) Platform, it includes both ATS (Applicant Tracking System) and CMS (Content Management System) components. It is: 

When we started off we thought perhaps we'd develop into something like the full service agency that we left - but we kinda got absorbed in the Applicant Tracking element of getting our offer right, and ten years later that's pretty much most of what we do.

Of course our background and appreciation of what it takes to create award winning digital experiences that put the brand and candidate experience on equal footing absolutely permeates through all that we do, but we think there are some pretty clever people at doing the branding stuff out there, so we prefer to work with them and focus on what we know we're excellent at, namely: delighting clients through building websites and recruitment processes underpinned by the HARBOUR Applicant Tracking System.

Growing up

From a start that saw two of us working from our respective spare rooms we currently have in excess of 80 clients, 40 or so HARBOURites across our offices in Copford (just south of Colchester, England) and Cardiff (Wales). But with greater numbers of the team we realised that being a straight talking agile start-up wasn't going to be enough in itself - so we've been working hard this past year to get our internal processes right to ensure we continue delivering the most attentive support as well as the most innovative and client focussed solutions. Part of that was a little journey of self-discovery, from which we created our 6 values. These are:

Local roots - global reach 

Right now we don't have any grand plans for global domination or anything like that. But we've been fortunate enough to work with some clients that have taken us into new parts of the world, as well as having had the opportunity to work with some partners that have taken HARBOUR further again. So right now you'll find dedicated HARBOUR solutions in:

 Abu Dhabi; Canada; China; Kenya; Puerto Rico; Switzerland; The Netherlands; USA
