In tumultuous economic times it can be easy to neglect your recruitment strategy. Companies can feel too busy trying to cut labour costs to think about investing in recruitment. This, however, can prove to be a big mistake.

Organizations that fail to attract, engage and recruit the best talent in the industry will miss out on opportunities to grow revenue streams and put themselves in a position to ‘bounce’ out of the recession.

It's becoming increasingly expected for companies and recruitment brands to offer a Careers section on their website. This area of web design is very much under-developed, one of the main reasons Recsite was launched in 2012. 

Our platform can be used to connect smartly to a company website to display Job Adverts and receive applications from real candidates. We're complete geeks when it comes to Career Pages, Recruitment Websites or Corporate Job Boards - whatever you want to call them, we cant get enough. In fact when we see a poorly designed Careers Website with out-dated job adverts and broken links, well it makes us do a small cry. 

 

The Universal template from Recsite is the standard free template that comes with the product. It offers a vanilla design which basically means it will naturally fit within another website. It includes dynamic job adverts, cv/resume parsing, login functionality and personalised content. The background banner and logo image can be customised by each client.

With growing numbers of job candidates, and some genuine talent out there, robust and thorough selection is paramount. The pressure is on to have a highly efficient talent management process in place. So how does one select the best talent from the mass of applicants whilst also delivering an engaging candidate experience which enhances your employer brand?

It is impossible to under-estimate the importance of an effective recruitment website: Corporate career websites are a cost-effective source of candidates for HR departments, often introducing the most and pro-active and valuable applicants.  Similarly, agencies and other recruitment brands build their recruitment strategy around their online offering. 

With on average 30% of web visits being mobile, if your recruitment website is not responsive, you're missing out on talent. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix - responsive web design is a philosophy that must be adhered to create recruitment websites that are multi-platform and future-proof. Whether you are an employer looking for a careers portal or an agency looking for a total re-brand, Recsite has the in-house design team to help you realise your vision:

Bad candidate experiences can do more harm than good to the image of your company. When candidates have a bad experience, it can ward off good candidates, and most importantly, it can harm the employer brand. The candidate experience begins at the very first click. It starts at the home page or job board. Emails exchanged, interviews conducted, phone calls exchanged, are all steps in the candidate experience. When recruiters are thoughtful about each step that the candidate takes, it creates a positive experience.

The web is now the primary source of job and career information for candidates. Employers also use it as their first port of call when researching recruitment and staffing solutions. There are millions of job searches online each month across the globe and its more important than ever for every recruiter to have an effective recruitment website. The best recruitment websites are quick and easy to use, visible in search engines and encourage brand loyalty. They attract candidates and customers through social media, effective site function and personalised design. A successful recruitment website must achieve three objectives:

"Work Culture isn’t a foosball table or trust falls. It isn’t policy. It isn’t the Christmas party or the company picnic. Those are objects and events, not culture. And it’s not a slogan, either. Culture is action, not words."
