How can I integrate Personio?


  1. Head over to Personio and navigate to Settings > API credentials.
  2. Click on Recruiting API key and copy company ID and access token.
  3. (Optional) Create a “JOIN” channel to have the candidate be tagged as coming from JOIN. To do so, navigate to Settings > Recruiting > Channels and create a new option by entering a name (e.g. “JOIN”) and clicking the plus button. Once done you can copy the “Channel ID”.
  4. (Optional) Create a custom candidate attribute to have the original source (e.g. Indeed, Facebook) be displayed on Personio. To do so, navigate to Settings > Recruiting > Attributes > Candidate profile and add a new attribute by entering a name (e.g. JOIN original source) and selecting “text” type and saving it. Once done you can copy the “API name”.
  5. Add the data collected above to the integration form in your company settings.
  6. JOIN will enable the integration and notify you once it is ready, please allow up to one full working day.

What is Personio?

Personio is the all-in-one HR software for small and medium-sized companies. Personio’s mission is to make HR processes as transparent and efficient as possible so HR can focus on what matters most: people and strategy. The Personio solution includes human resources, recruiting, and payroll, and supports the core HR processes every business needs to do.

Why use Personio with JOIN?

Personio offers an advanced Applicant Tracking System (ATS) designed to assist internal HR teams of all sizes in organising and scaling their HR process. Combined with JOIN’s powerful multi-posting feature, you will be able to attract more applications than before and manage them in an optimal way.

How does the integration work?

The integration consists of two services: jobs and candidates synchronisation. 

Jobs synchronisation creates, updates and archives jobs automatically, based on the jobs currently published on Personio. This means that you will only need to maintain jobs on Personio and JOIN will replicate those jobs automatically – without any input from you.

Candidates synchronisation forwards applications from JOIN to Personio. This means that you can use Personio for the management of applications without having to log in to JOIN.

You will still be able to use JOIN for purchasing premium products and benefit from the attractive prices on relevant job boards.
