In 2019 we ran a survey with candidates to find out what they found frustrating when applying for jobs in education provider in the UK. We took that feedback and decided that we needed to do something about it. That is why we have built Education Recruiter a dedicated stand-alone eRecruitment platform for the education sector. Produced and run by the education sector itself, the sole purpose of the system is to make your life easier when applying for jobs at education providers. When designing the software, we focused on the candidate experience, ensuring the system met your needs and was easy to use. Below are some of the key features that the system has for candidates like you when applying for jobs with education providers using our system.
With 70% of Jobseekers saying they wanted a quick application process, 39% of you saying you would prefer to apply with a CV and a further 48% said that they were frustrated about filling in application forms, we knew we had to look into fixing this problem. Unfortunately, application forms in the education sector aren't going away soon, with many organisations seeing it as an essential requirement for the recruitment process due to Ofsted inspections and safeguarding. That is why so many institutions can't accept a CV when applying for their role. However, we feel that we have the best solution that allows you to use your CV when applying, helping you to fill out an application form when you first apply.
Before Education Recruiter it would have taken you hours to apply for two or more vacancies at different education providers. Downloading the application form filling it in and then emailing it to Human Resources. Well, not anymore! As long as the Employers have Education Recruiter as their e-Recruitment system, you able to easily apply for jobs within minutes using your stored data. Hopefully, this is music to your ears to the 48% of you that said this would be a feature they would greatly appreciate. Not only that, all of this can be done using your smartphone or tablet device, so no waiting to get home and spending all night filling in your application
With 78% of candidates saying they want to search and apply for jobs using mobile technology. Why are most e-Recruitment systems out there still relying on candidates to complete an application using a laptop or desktop PC? Education Recruiter is different as it allows you to do everything you would normally do on a desktop on your smartphone or tablet device. Allowing you to apply for jobs and track your application wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
No one likes to be kept in the dark, especially when applying for jobs. With 48% of job seekers saying they are frustrated with not getting feedback and 39% of you saying you would like to easily find out where they are in the recruitment process at all times. Education Recruiter allows you to do both of these things with ease through our candidate portal. From here you are able to manage your data, check up on or complete applications, review messages from recruiters and ask questions about roles you have applied for or looking to apply to.
We think you should be kept informed throughout the application process and not have to login every time you want to find out something. Which is why we have given recruiters multiple ways to communicate with you, throughout the recruitment process. That way you are kept in the loop at all times, so you're well informed and you know what’s going on. Say good riddance to those panic moments that you have when you haven’t heard any news from a potential future employer.
