Reed took the brave step to stop posting their jobs to Indeed (over 2 years ago) and since then has been using it’s marketing budget to attract candidates from alternative sources to attract a different audience that you will find with the other job boards.
Flat Fee Recruiter is now working in partnership with Reed, to offer customers an alternative reach for candidates.
Now don’t get me wrong, there is always a place for a decent recruiter and I don’t wish every recruitment agency RIP – honestly. But that’s the point; you have to be a decent recruiter in this day and age to survive! Why should a Hiring Manager pay thousands of pounds for a basic service that, with a little creativity, could be managed with significantly less cost and hassle in-house?
Hiring Managers and in-house Recruiters are now wise to what they need. They understand about recruitment strategies, they know how an ATS can improve their processes and they are keen to improve their employer brand to generate quality talent pools of referrals. The market is truly open to recruitment suppliers who can build partnerships with organisations to actually fill their jobs in the most efficient way – adding value to in-house processes rather than trying to replace or work around them.
Online recruitment advertising is all about getting your job seen by the right job seekers so that you have a healthy and quality pool of applicants to take to interview and ultimately hire. If you’re familiar with online recruitment you’ll know it’s very different to other traditional methods of recruitment advertising – it’s not enough to have a great job, salary and location but you also need to sell it in an advert...and then get it seen too!
