Nick Clegg visiting Tribepad

Former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg visited Sheffield-based tech company Tribepad today to discuss plans to unite digital companies across the North with the MP’s TechNorth scheme.  The Government-funded scheme aims to double the number of workers in the sector helping to put the North of England on the international map.

Tribepad who provide recruitment software for some of the world’s largest organisations including the BBC, Tesco and G4S, used the opportunity to speak with Nick Clegg about their “Applicant Tracking System” as well as their new cutting-edge video interviewing platform.

Another one of the MP’s and Liberal Democrats’ priorities is to increase the number of apprenticeships in business, and Mr Clegg spoke today with some of Tribepad’s own successes.  During the Coalition Government, the number of apprenticeships nearly doubled.

Dan Kirkland, COO of Tribepad said: “We see the true value that apprentices bring to a business, especially for SMEs. Tribepad work closely with The Sheffield College to find talent, and this has been a huge success!  It’s great to see young talent take opportunities to build their career and we’re proud to be a part of it.”

Tribepad also aim to reduce recruitment costs within the teaching industry. “We believe Tribepad’s software is ideal for helping schools make significant savings yet still attract the best talent,” Dean Sadler, CEO, told Mr Clegg.

Tribepad was founded by former CTO and Founder of Plusnet, Dean Sadler, in 2008.
