Everything you need to know about the creators of the Applicant Tracking System that’s been designed with candidates, recruiters and hiring managers in mind.

About Us

Vacancy Filler Ltd is a progressive company, recognised as being a leading provider of SaaS Recruitment Software to organisations both nationally and internationally.  

Established back in 2008 when our founder and CEO, Alex Khakbiz, was frustrated by the way he had to find talent to help his business grow. He was certain technology could be used to view and store incoming CV’s, shortlist candidates and schedule interviews, so he set out to make his vision become a reality. 

Initially, a system was developed to allow businesses to recruit internally by enabling them to attract stronger talent with a better candidate experience. 

Today, Vacancy Filler is one of the most feature-rich Applicant Tracking  Systems in the market with tools to attract, recruit and onboard high performing teams.  

We work with many of the UK’s largest companies, such as Aldi UK & Ireland, Ibstock Brick, Ultra Electronics and Bouygeus as well as education, not-for-profit and public sector organisations such as Woodland Trust, Activate Learning and Youth Hostels Association.  

Our business is driven by our exceptional service and support and our company culture is to value everyone whom we employ, work with and work for, without question. 


Our Vision

Vacancy Filler’s vision is to be the first thought in people’s minds when they want to attract, recruit and onboard the best talent for their business.


Our Strategy

To realise our vision, we will meet and surpass the functionality, performance, support and service requirements of candidates, recruiters, hiring managers and directors.

Our Delivery

We have positioned ourselves to rise to the challenge by creating a cutting edge, robust and resilient Applicant Tracking System with a reputation for service and support excellence.


Our Business Model

Our business is developed around people both internally and externally with our main focus being product development. This has led us to develop a platform that’s mobile-first and built using serverless technology which is controlled and maintained by us, mitigating the risk of attacks, service outages and downtime for our customers.

We use our position to offer our customers economies of scale, access to technology built around recruitment automation, self-service functionalities and customisation, all underpinned by a team of expert Customer Success Account Managers to help meet their recruitment goals.


Our Competitive Advantage

Vacancy Filler operates in a highly competitive, fast-moving environment at the leading edge of recruitment technology. However, we have built and sustained our competitive advantage via an in-house team of developers that have built around an unparalleled breadth of recruitment driven features and functions.
