We’re excited to unveil OnePage™ Recruitment, a brand-new concept in how to streamline the recruitment process. Small and large companies will enjoy the bespoke features and excellent recruitment support that our new service offers.
BBPN has developed an innovative yet simple solution to the problems of building a good candidate list while minimising the time spend both for the recruiter or manager and for the prospective candidates.
This knocks holes in some firmly held beliefs that good quality recruitment has to be hard work or inconvenient for either the recruiter or the candidates.
Recruitment Hassle a Thing of the Past
Newspaper adverts, mountains of CVs and half-hearted applicants are a thing of the past at Manchester – based Trolex. The company has embraced BBPN’s new OnePage™ recruitment funnel, a questionnaire-based solution which is transforming the way in which they find new employees.
Trolex manufacture sensor and monitoring equipment for hazardous areas and in the past, explains HR manager Lucy Cutt, had relied on agencies to help with their recruitment needs. However, the process didn’t always prove successful.
“BBPN provide a tailored approach,” From the start I could see this method was going to save us time and money. It’s a cost-effective way for us to recruit when you consider it against agency fees.”
Helping Candidates as well as Employers
The procedure has also been designed to help candidates with a real interest in a job by giving them scope to show how their skills and experience can benefit the recruiter. The OnePage™ recruitment process can revolutionise the way in which you find new employees.
Creating a Good Advert and Landing Page is Essential
BBPN write and design the advert, before placing it on key, targeted job boards and websites. The wording and style of the advert has a major impact on the volume and quality of responses, especially when advertising on-line. The adverts are about selling the opportunity in a way that attracts candidates with the right motivation and personality, and getting the wording right can be as important as the questionnaire itself.
First Filter – “Are you Proactive?”
The OnePage™ approach means candidates need to be a lot more proactive. It takes time and a real interest in the job to complete the questions, and that helps to cut out all the ‘time wasters’.
Applicants are encouraged to click through to a job-specific landing page where they are prompted to answer four or five open questions. Lucy continues:
“This is the first innovative touch that helps the process move so smoothly. In the past, the minute we’ve advertised a job we’ve been bombarded with 100s of emails and CVs, the majority of which are a waste of time. Most of the people haven’t even read the job specification, let alone bothered to find out what Trolex actually does.”
Taking the Guesswork out of Recruitment
BBPN’s recruitment specialist assesses those candidates who have submitted full replies and selects those who are worth pursuing. This group is then filtered through a series of telephone interviews, in order to reach a final short-list of around six candidates for face-to-face interview. It’s only at this stage that clients get involved.
