Below are case studies to illustrate how colleges are already using FEjobs.com to achieve great results:
"We have increasingly found attracting quality candidates a challenge. Recruitment advertising is costly and the administration involved in processing applications is lengthy. Whilst historically, we have used offline publications to advertise our vacancies, we are now embracing the Internet as a medium to reach candidates.
We were asked to work with Eteach in developing FEjobs.com, to ensure that this new recruitment system was tried and tested by the people who would be using it in the future. With our input and that of other FE colleges, we have helped to influence the shape and scope of this service to create a function that will cater specifically for FE college needs and refine the recruitment process. Not only does FEjobs.com ensure college vacancies are widely promoted but it ensures jobseekers can easily find suitable roles with enhanced search functions and email job bulletins.
Financially, FEjobs.com has the potential to save us thousands on advertising and hours of administration. Being able to just email our job advertisement in and have the suitable candidate application forms emailed back to us, on our own college application forms, will transform our recruitment process."
Kath Barnes, Head of Personnel, Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College
"When we learnt that FEjobs was developed with the AoC and is supported by the major unions, North Hertfordshire College initially decided to use it on a Pay-per-Vacancy basis. We were happy with the response and decided to make use of the additional features associated with the annual subscription.
The website is easy-to-use, enables us to give the information about our college and its location and the candidates apply directly to us electronically on our own college forms.
A real benefit is being able to attach our own recruitment information and the job description for each post. In a short space of time the response has been better than the traditional national press and I believe this will continue as the service establishes itself as the market leader."
