Working with departments and roles is a great way to organize your entire Teamtailor account. This applies to both the recruiters working in Teamtailor and the candidates applying for the positions. 

Add a new department

Get started by heading over to Settings → General → Departments. Set up a new department by clicking + Department in the top corner.

Add the department name and assign a Department manager. This person will be the face of the department in terms of communication with connected candidates. This includes:

  • Alias for the welcome message displayed on the Connect dashboard for candidates connected to this department

  • Contact person in job subscription emails sent to candidates, linked to this department.

Add a new role

Once you've got your departments in place you can also add roles to the different departments. To add a new role to a department, click on + New Role under the Roles section.

When creating a job you'll be able to assign a department and a role to that posting.
The roles can be used as a filter for job postings on your career site, and when candidates connect to your company. You can read more about Connect here.
