65% of the UK population are regular internet users, so it’s hardly surprising that the web is increasingly becoming the main way people look for jobs.
With around 75% of graduate recruiters only accepting online applications*, graduates are used to carrying out their job seeking online. Infact, we conducted our own research and found that about 8 out of 10 graduates who use our service only job hunt online, avoiding the dreaded Job Centre and traditional jobs papers.
The main benefit to employers of recruiting on the web is that it really speeds up the process. You input your job requirements and your advert goes live instantly, meaning graduates can be looking at and applying for your job within minutes of you adding it to the site.
Online recruitment also helps smaller companies compete on an equal basis with larger organisations. Print advertising is often dominated by large advertisements from organisations with big budgets but on our site all adverts are given the same space and have the same chance of being seen by candidates, either when browsing or searching for jobs.
Applications can be managed online too, reducing paperwork. You can login to your account and view all applications for a job and download details of those you wish to contact.
Like other recruitment websites, we also give you the chance to take the initiative and search for candidates yourself by accessing our CV database - another benefit of recruiting online that isn’t available anywhere else.
Also, recruitment websites have lower overheads than print media and recruitment agencies so they’re cheaper. See our using your budget wisely section to see how much you could save by recruiting online!
