jobs.ac.uk, the leading international job board for careers in academic, research and science professions; has joined forces with e-Recruitment provider, WCN Plc, to launch e-jobs – a new low-cost Applicant Tracking System for UK universities.
With greater pressure on UK universities to make significant cost savings following the Government’s spending review, e-jobs has been developed as a low cost alternative to help universities manage their entire recruitment online, deliver huge resource efficiencies and provide a better candidate experience.
Developed alongside feedback from 15 different UK universities, e-jobs has been tailored to meet the specific recruitment needs of universities and will help manage the entire recruitment process from advertising a vacancy to evaluating responses and making an appointment.
e-jobs combines jobs.ac.uk’s in-depth knowledge of the HE sector with WCN’s award-winning recruitment technology and uses an innovative ‘only pay for what you use’ model which will enable more universities to move away from less efficient paper-based methods of recruiting to e-Recruitment practices.
Maddie Langeveld, Director at jobs.ac.uk said: “This exciting new partnership with WCN will help us to bring the huge cost saving benefits of using e-Recruitment software, which has become almost standard business practice in the private sector, to a wider audience of universities”.
Langeveld continues “e-jobs comes at a time when many universities are still using paper based approval, recruitment and selection procedures and feel that the upfront cost and implementation of an e-Recruitment system is a hindrance. e-jobs therefore provides a modern cost-effective solution which is much more affordable and accessible to universities”.
Key features of e-jobs includes easy job board posting, applicant tracking tools, end-to-end recruitment functionality, online scoring and shortlisting, online interview scheduling, pre-employment (onboarding) forms which capture pension details, the ability to record when candidate visas expire and fully customisable reports.
