EMPLOYERS and jobseekers can now benefit from a dynamic one stop e-recruitment portal designed to meet the needs of public sector organisations in the South East.
The new, easy-to-navigate website - southeastjobs.org.uk – offers an outstanding interactive e-recruitment service for councils and other public sector organisations combined with significant cost savings.
Southeastjobs.org.uk is already attracting a huge level of interest from jobseekers – visits to the site exceed 180,000 with an average of 863 visits per day. For jobseekers it’s a user-friendly, one-stop service with positions advertised by public sector organisations across the region to support finding new or alternative employment or careers.
Using the portal enables organisations to advertise new job opportunities to a wider market and facilitate the sharing of existing staff skills within and between organisations. For a small annual subscription organisations benefit from cost and efficiency savings; no procurement costs, reduced advertising spend, and more efficient use of staff time in managing the recruitment process.
The portal offers the latest features in e-recruitment including:
• proactive notification and alerts direct to jobseekers,
• applicant tracking from job advert through to job offer,
• talent pools with search and skills sharing facilities,
• on-line psychometric assessments as part of the selection process,
• management reporting and cost analysis facility,
• CRB eBulk processing (coming soon) for increased speed and efficiency.
Jennifer McNeill, Regional Director of SEE said: “Public sector organisations are working together as never before to cut costs and increase efficiency, for example by sharing staff and services and reducing waste. This portal combines resources in a way that will prove hugely effective and add value to the services we provide to our communities.”
She added: “A regional portal such as this offers jobseekers a new interactive and intuitive service. This focuses on their needs and interests whilst providing them with a wider choice of opportunities and career prospects within the public sector – a win-win for the public sector and jobseekers alike.”
The website links to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, reaching a broader range of potential jobseekers.
