Pre-screen candidates & send interview follow up reminders
Think about it, in temporary recruitment you will have to go through a lot of candidates to find quality talent. Getting this right can make or break the rest of your recruitment process duration. Using pre screening video interviews can help save so much time, rather than routing through CVs, seeing candidates videos will help get through a high volume of candidates much quicker.
Automating interview follow up reminders will reduce the amount of candidate ghosting you will likely get with temporary hires. Depending on what system you use to schedule interviews, they will always give you an option for reminders, something many recruiters overlook.

Split these up into different sections of the recruitment process and ensure you automate communication between the cold candidates and the warm candidates.
