In this article, you will learn how you can integrate Recruitee into Personio. You will get an overview of all the requirements, and the instructions for the integration installation with the Personio employee data API.


What is Recruitee?

Recruitee is an integrated cloud-based recruitment management and applicant tracking system (ATS) designed to assist internal HR teams of all sizes in organizing and scaling their hiring process. The solution features business branding, job multi-posting, candidate sourcing, applicant tracking recruitment analysis, and more, all on an easy-to-use platform. Recruitee is designed to help you launch your hiring process, scale your practices, and lead your hiring team.


How can I set up the integration of Recruitee in Personio?

Firstly, the API credentials (consisting of Client ID and Client Secret) have to be generated in Personio and inserted into your Recruitee account. To do this, proceed as follows:

  1. Login to your Personio account as an Admin user.
  2. Navigate to Settings > API.
  3. Click on the Access sub-menu. Here you will be presented with the entire list of attributes that the API should read from. Please review these and add / remove as you see fit. Click on the Edit button to make changes to the selection.


  4. To generate the Client ID and Client Secret, navigate to Settings > API > Credentials. Select Generate new credentials.

    Please note that if you use the Generate new credentials command, your existing credentials become invalid.


  5. You will be prompted to download a text file. Choose your preferred location to save the file and open it afterwards.


  6. Go to your Recruitee account and navigate to Settings > Apps and plugins > Integrations > Integrate now (next to Personio).


  7. Read the information and confirm by clicking Accept & Integrate.


  8. Copy and paste the Client ID and Client Secret from the previously saved text file, fill in your Personio subdomain, and click on Integrate.


  9. Recruitee and Personio are now connected. Under Manage, you can select who should be able to view and send profiles to Personio.


  10. Decide which roles can see if a profile has already been sent to Personio. Next to this, select which roles are able to send profiles to your Personio account.


  11. Under Manage, you can also change the API key or remove the integration altogether. If you choose Remove integration, you need to confirm and click delete permanently.
