Jobsite are pleased to announce that we won ‘Best Candidate Experience’ at this year’s Onrec awards. The awards, now in their 12th year were held in London and attended by over 280 guests from the very best in online recruitment.
This award means a lot to us because the candidate experience is at the heart of what we do. Developments such as Jobsite’s new homepage demonstrate this and our continued commitment to candidate research. We now use every interaction with a candidate to present them the most relevant jobs – giving them a truly personalised experience.
Jobsite have also introduced browser notifications, allowing candidates to see when recruiters have viewed their profile and alert them to upcoming application deadlines. This helps candidates catch up since their last visit and ensures they have access to the best opportunities in real time. We know it works: Jobsite candidates using notifications are twice as likely to make an application.
It’s not just getting recognition from awards, by knowing our candidates inside out and intelligently delivering a sophisticated job seeking experience we have seen 32% uplift in visits and a strong 17% increase in applications per vacancy.
Neil Mcilroy, Candidate Product Manager at Jobsite says “Our candidate experience has improved significantly over the last 12 months and there’s much more to come. Candidates are front of mind in everything we do – we know that by building a great experience we’ll help them to find jobs they love and in turn help our clients discover the best talent in the market”
David Hurst, founder of Onrec, says “The nominees and winners this year prove again that despite the current challenging economic climate, our industry has been resourceful and continues to triumph”.
