Is it time for a new ATS?

Is it time for a new ATS?

On average, a recruiter’s workload has increased by 28% over the last 2 years, and many organisations are now facing the demands of high-volume recruitment. With this in mind, TA functions are questioning whether their current ATS systems are designed to support such activities and whether they are equipped to cope with the ever-increasing demand.

The shortage of quality candidates has created a need for intelligent technology solutions that doesn’t take the "one size fits all" approach.

#FIRMday London

What a fab day we had yesterday in London at #FIRMday! Thank you, Melanie Punch, for joining our very own Mark Ferrer on stage to share your story of how you created an engaging candidate experience at Investec. It was great to hear how you implemented new processes and how much of a positive impact this had on the business and your candidate journey.

It was lovely to see so many of our clients enjoying the presentations and discussions that were held throughout the day.

Thanks again to The Firm for another great event. We look forward to returning to that amazing venue next month for the #FIRMAwards2022.

Careers Site - Is your best foot forward?

Careers Site - Is your best foot forward?

One of the first steps of a successful recruitment strategy is to create an attractive and impactful career site. A careers site is an essential and powerful tool, giving your candidates an insight into your business and creating a sense of belonging through your employer brand.

With the candidate-led market we all know today, it is crucial that your career site is not just acting as a glorified job board; it’s a hub of rich content where your candidates can immerse themselves in your company culture, values, and teams.

Perhaps ask yourself, "Are we putting our best foot forward?"

At eArcu we have a skilled and dedicated creative team, helping businesses stand out from the crowd and attract top talent.

Talent shortages are on every recruiter’s mind, and with 41% of the global workforce considering leaving their current employer within the next 12 months, it is a true battle for talent. Putting out a job ad just doesn’t cut it anymore, and businesses are finding new, more creative ways of attracting and retaining their workforce.
