Claire Smith, HR Adviser, City College Southampton
“We have been using Eteach – specifically FEjobs – for some time now, and have recently secured our contract with them for another 2 years. I find the system very quick and easy to use, which is very helpful when we need to initiate a recruitment process with a quick turnaround. Staff are always knowledgeable & helpful, and response to our teaching vacancies with FEjobs has been good. We have full control to manage and edit our account and vacancies at any time, which is a key strength of the FEjobs system.”
Helen Passaway, Human Resources Officer , Filton College
“Filton College operate a policy of recruiting its own employees through own form of advertising and recruitment methods. Using this method is suitable for most aspects of recruitment. We have used FE Jobs for a couple of years now for recruitment of both academic and corporate staff. The flexibility of the website is great and this method of advertising has proved beneficial to College as the yearly subscription fits within the budget constraints we have in the education sector. FE Jobs has always given a professional and effective service. I would not hesitate in recommending FE Jobs to work in partnership in your recruitment process.’
Gail, Gateway College
“I have used FEjobs.com for a number of years and have always found it to be very effective. As Gateway College annually subscribe to FEjobs.com all of our teaching and support vacancies are advertised there. The website is very easy to use and the support is excellent.”
Alison Barlow, Personnel Officer , Norton Radstock College
“Norton Radstock College is now in it’s fifth year of using FEjobs.com. The annual fee covers unlimited use of the website and on occasions we have been able to turn a vacancy around in just a few days, which is something you cannot get from advertising in the press. FEjobs powers the vacancy page on our website, so with very little effort vacancies can be posted in a few minutes. The website is straightforward to use. E-recruitment is the way forward.”
Glyn Ingram, FE Lecturer, Berkshire
“As an FE lecturer I was asked to participate in the development of www.FEjobs.com. With an easy-to-use online search and email job alerts specific to my criteria, it was really impressive. I think the Internet in general is a great way to find work and I have recommended www.FEjobs.com to friends and colleagues.”
Christina McAnea, Head of Education, UNISON
“We welcome this initiative which provides UNISON members with a free, specialist FE job-seeking facility.”
Peter Pendle, Chief Executive, Association for College Management (ACM)
“ACM is pleased to support Eteach.com in its new initiative – www.FEjobs.com - a specialist FE job site. The unique online technology behind FEjobs.com ensures that searching for a job or recruiting for a member of staff is simple, economical and effective.”
Recruitment Co-ordinator, City and Islington College, Greater London
“I co-ordinate the recruitment process for City and Islington College across all five of our centres and FEjobs is one of my favourite websites that I use frequently. Through FEjobs.com, we have attracted strong calibre of applicants and good level of response and it is for this reason that we place all of our vacancies including Business Support roles on the website. The process for posting our adverts is quick and easy (which is very important!) and the email alerts and reports are very useful. We have filled seven positions over the last six months alone through FEjobs ranging from Learning Facilitators to Lecturers. FEjobs is becoming a very valuable recruitment tool for us and the staff are always at hand to help"
Jackie Ryan, HR Assistant, Gorseinon College
“Gorseinon College has used FEJobs.com over the past 2 years and find it very efficient and user friendly. You get unlimited vacancy posting throughout the year, there’s no hassle, you just copy and paste the advert onto the website and complete relevant fields which is very straightforward and everything else is done for you. The system has the ability to upload job descriptions and person specifications which makes life easy and application forms are already set up for each vacancy. The advert is always set out neatly and professionally, displaying the College Logo. We always get a very good response to vacancies as it is distributed everywhere! We are very impressed with FEJobs.com and will continue to use them.”
Carol Ashby, Human Resources Manager, North Hertfordshire 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.”
Jane Pountney, Head of Corporate Services, Stafford College
Further to your recent e-mail, I write to advise that Stafford College have found FEJobs to be a valuable on-line recruitment media for the advertising of our vacancies. Analysis on the FEJobs site relating to our vacancies is useful and assists with our own Recruitment analysing. By using FEJobs to advertise our vacancies, our advertising costs have reduced greatly. I trust you find this helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further assistance.
Karen Gruar, HR Co-ordinator, New College, Swindon
“I have been using FEJOBS on behalf of New College, Swindon for over five years. I enter all our vacancies including Business Support roles onto the site and find the process very easy to use. The site has been continually updated and improved over the years and has recently gone through a major upgrade. During this change, I found FEJOBS listened to my comments and were open to suggestions and ideas to improve the service they provide.
I have noticed a definite increase of applicants received through FEJOBS over the years and feel that they are now one of the top sites used for people looking for roles in education.
I have received regular visits to update me on changes and feel that staff are always helpful.”
Ben Burchett, Recruitment Manager Newham College of Further Education, Newham
“We have been members of www.FEjobs.com since 2005 and have found the Subscription to be a very reasonably priced and successful recruitment solution. The website is simple to administer meaning our vacancies can be posted to thousands of quality candidates instantly with help always on hand from our dedicated account team. We find FEjobs’ prices very competitive and the website has proved an invaluable recruitment tool in attracting the best talent and we will be using their services again in the next academic year.”
Kath Barnes, Head of Personnel, Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College
“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 receive suitable candidate applications online, on our own college application forms, will transform our recruitment process.”
Debbie Cohen, HR Manager, Bournemouth & Poole College
“We have a staff of 1400 working across six sites in the locality. Traditionally we have relied on advertising job vacancies in the local press, the TES and on our own ‘jobs@thecollege’ section of our website, whilst still exploring ways of reaching a wider audience.
We view FEjobs.com as another tool to reach people who are searching online for lecturing or admin positions in FE. Setting up the service was easily done and completed in a couple of days without the need for special software or equipment.
As soon as we have a vacancy available we can log onto the FEjobs site and type in the full details, which become ‘live’ on the site immediately. Candidates can fill in our application form online and email it directly to us or download it for completion. This has saved us a lot of repetitive paperwork and time. At interview we simply ask applicants to sign their emailed application form to confirm the details are correct.
FEjobs.com is becoming a very valuable tool, assisting us in attracting good quality applicants who either have FE experience or who are new to the sector.”
