When you place a candidate in Firefish, their Candidates Status is updated to 'Happy in current position' for permanent placements and 'Currently in Contract' for contract placements.

This status will remain in place for the permanent placements, however the system will automatically update the contract placements status so your data is always accurate.

Every morning, Firefish automatically runs our Contract Status Update Service which updates the status for contract candidates who's contract employment in the system has changed.

Firstly, when the contractor is placed, their status will change to 'Currently in Contract'.

When the service is run however, it will look for candidates with this status and no live contracts but at least one previous contract – essentially candidates who's contracts have just finished and return them to 'Actively looking'.

This allows you to keep the data in the system as accurate as possible and ensure candidates are coded up correctly, meaning searching in the system will help you find contractors that are actually looking for a new role.
