Discovery Park-Based Gareth Jones Discusses His Newest Venture, RecBox

Last week, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Gareth Jones, Founder of Discovery Park-based Wave Search, to discuss his latest venture: RecBox.

In our insightful conversation, Gareth shared the inspiration behind RecBox and how its advanced features aim to streamline every stage of recruitment.



Can you start by sharing a bit about you and your professional journey? 

My name is Gareth Jones, and I’m the Co-Founder of RecBox, alongside my business partner, Elkie Holland. With nearly 20 years in the recruitment industry, I have a deep passion for AI and recruitment technology. Since 2015, I’ve been running my business, Wave Search, at Discovery Park. Our journey led us to develop RecBox, a revolutionary recruitment productivity tool. In late 2023, we partnered with KTB Technologies, a market leader in workforce management technology, to bring RecBox to life!


What is RecBox?

RecBox is an AI-powered recruitment toolkit designed to streamline and enhance every stage of the hiring process. It provides recruiters with a suite of tools to make smarter, faster, and more efficient hiring decisions. The beauty of RecBox lies in its simplicity—a user-friendly dashboard allows users to complete repetitive and time-consuming tasks in seconds, with just one click, using a CV or job description.


What inspired you to develop RecBox, and how does it address the pain points recruiters face?

Elkie and I saw the potential of AI and automation to address inefficiencies in the hiring process. Recruiters often spend countless hours on manual tasks, missing out on top talent. RecBox was created to tackle these pain points by automating routine tasks and enhancing candidate matching through AI technology. This not only reduces the time and cost to hire but also improves the quality of hires, benefiting recruiters, talent acquisition professionals, and their clients or stakeholders.


Is RecBox just for recruiters? Can you share a bit about the use cases?

While RecBox is a powerful tool for recruiters, its applications extend beyond traditional recruitment roles. HR professionals, talent acquisition specialists, and hiring managers can all benefit from its features. HR teams can streamline internal hiring processes, and hiring managers can make data-driven decisions. Essentially, anyone involved in the hiring process can find value in RecBox.


What measures has RecBox implemented to protect sensitive recruitment information?

Security is a top priority for RecBox. We’ve implemented robust measures to protect sensitive information, including secure cloud storage and stringent access controls. Our platform undergoes regular security audits and updates to ensure data is safeguarded against potential threats. Additionally, we comply with all relevant data protection regulations, giving our users peace of mind regarding the security of their information.


What future features can users expect from RecBox?

We have an exciting roadmap for RecBox with several innovative features in development. We’re working on advanced integration tools so users can connect RecBox to their current CRM, ATS, or HR software for a more seamless experience. Our goal is to continuously evolve RecBox to meet the changing needs of the recruitment industry and provide our users with the best possible tools for success.
