Getting a healthy response to any recruitment advertising campaign is essential if you are going to have a good selection of candidates to interview.
We are frequently told, from the job boards themselves, that we generate a higher than average response rate for all their job sectors. This is great news as we heavily invest in training and developing our team to ensure that every advert is written to the highest standard and stands the best chance of being found by the target applicants. After all, it is what you are paying for and what we do day in day out.
In addition to making sure your adverts perform, getting the best reach through a wide job board distribution is essential if you are to get the most out of the job boards. As we previously mentioned, each job board markets to the applicants slightly differently and our mix of the big 5, ensure that you get the widest spread possible.
So, we have talked about the quantity, but what about the quality? For most SME businesses, if you had to wade through 205 customer service responses, you would probably be pulling your hair out? We get this, which is why we have developed our recruitment tech to help you. We all know that there needs to be some human intervention in recruitment, but by reducing the number of applications with a self-screening process, means that you only get to review the applicants who meet your essential criteria.
Finally, we are really keen to make sure that we manage your expectations. In some situations, relying 100% on job board advertising to fill your vacancies is not the best approach. The most sensible recruitment strategies will use job boards as part of their recruitment and attraction activity. If you are looking for a pink unicorn, you will probably need to have a whole suite of recruitment tools up your sleeve to ensure you find them. If you are fishing in a skills shortage market and not paying an attractive salary or offering a reason for them to choose your company, you will struggle to find the best people regardless of your recruitment strategy and where you advertise. But, for all of our customers, we will be honest and tell you it, as it is.
Our promise to you? We will do our best to help your advert perform and work towards achieving the best application rates possible from a wide selection of job boards.
Our last survey shows that 100% of our customers were positive about their experience with us - let the numbers speak for themselves!
