Who are Falkland Islands Government?
The Falkland Islands Government (FIG) is responsible for all areas of public service in the Falkland Islands. Services range from central government functions such as taxation, legislation, and policy, to local services like town planning, health & social services, and education. In addition, FIG also provides specific services catered to the needs of the Falkland Islands, such as fisheries research, power generation, and the Government Air Service.
What recruitment services did FIG require?
The recruitment challenges FIG faced were multifaceted due to their unique position as a British Overseas Territory. In particular, their vacancies involve attracting skilled professionals who are also willing to relocate within a reasonable timeframe.
According to HR Advisor, Kimberley Greenland,’ “Due to the remote location, gaining competitive space on job boards such as Indeed, etc. can be challenging”
Before partnering with Flat Fee Recruiter, FIG had used various recruitment methods, including their own microsite, relevant industry press, websites, job boards, and recruitment agencies, with varying levels of success.
How did working with Flat Fee Recruiter help fill their vacancies?
Flat Fee Recruiter approached FIG with a solution tailored to their unique needs. What attracted FIG to Flat Fee Recruiter was our ability to provide FIG with a competitive presence on major job boards in the UK, thus enabling them to reach the right candidates.
Our sector specific campaigns allowed FIG to benefit from a mixture of both industry focused and generalist job boards.
What have been the result of FIG’s campaigns with Flat Fee Recruiter?
The team at Flat Fee Recruiter were able to develop a bespoke advertising process for FIG that effectively promotes the unique opportunities available within the Falkland Islands Government. Sector-specific advertising allowed FIG to utilise a mix of both industry and generalist job boards.
One of the significant benefits has been the wide variety of options available, including ‘Featured’ adverts on Reed that benefit from added visuals and recruitment aids. These were especially effective for the government’s Health Service roles which required extensive advertising in the UK.
How did FIG find the process?
The transition to Flat Fee Recruiter’s services was seamless, with Account Manager Paula always on-hand to provide support.
Says Kimberley: “The communication from Paula on the various roles we’ve advertised through FFR has been so helpful and her attention to detail and advice has been invaluable. The team overall have offered a prompt, trustworthy and efficient experience.”
Flat Fee Recruiter and the Falkland Islands Government look forward to a continued partnership exploring the most effective methods of advertising a wide variety of roles.
