In another brilliantly innovative move, our tech team has developed a new way to streamline the candidate shortlisting process. This new feature allows you to add candidates to a vacancy shortlist directly from their profile in the Quality Candidate Database.
Another fantastic element of this feature is that the system gives you an overview of all the vacancies your candidate is already involved with – either being short-listed for, having been placed or working an assignment. In this way, you can view and manage your candidate vacancies directly from their profile.
You now have more than one way to navigate your system and more ways in which you can make this amazing tool fit your personal recruitment workflow!
Here’s how it works –
When viewing a candidate’s profile in the Quality Candidate Database, you will notice the addition of a new button at the top of the page – ‘Add to Vacancy’.
This button will open a pop-up window with a search bar at the very top. Below is a list of all the vacancies this candidates is connected to. The vacancies are categorized into those which you have created (My Vacancies) and those created by the rest of your team (Other Recruiters’ Vacancies).
To view or shortcut to any of the vacancies listed here, simple click on the vacancy in the list and then click on the ‘View Vacancy’ button.
Remember clicking ‘Cancel’ will bring you back to the Add to Vacancies pop-up window.
Candidates can also be removed from any shortlist, using this tool. As before, simply click on the vacancy in question and then click on the ‘Remove’ button below.
It is important to note that you need to click the ‘Remove’ button a second time to confirm that you are sure you’d like to remove the candidate from this vacancy shortlist.
To add this candidate to a vacancy shortlist, begin by typing the Vacancy ID (or vacancy reference number), the Job Title or the name of the hiring Company into the search bar.
Click on the required vacancy…
…and then hit the ‘Add’ button. You will see that the added vacancy will immediately appear on the list.
When you go into the Vacancy, you will see the candidate has now been added and is listed on your ‘Send Outs’ tab.
This is an excellent tool to use in cases where you have a great candidate who you’d like to attach to multiple vacancies. It’s also fantastic for keeping tabs of things as it gives you an overview of your candidate’s perspective of their job-seeking journey.
We trust that this will aid you in making more placements AND placing your candidates faster than ever before.
As always, your feedback is of massive value to us so, please do let us know what you think?
Keep an eye out for more new features coming soon!
The tech team have just completed the restyling of the iFrame which displays your list of vacancy adverts on your website, giving it a fresh new look as shown here –
Here are some of the distinctive differences you will notice:
The new Keyword search function, which has recently been added to the advertising tab on your vacancies page, will now also have an effect on the vacancy list on your website.
Candidates can use the search bar at the top of your vacancy page to find the right jobs in an instant.
The entire page has been redesigned to be more visually open and flowing, making the info easier to spot and comprehend at a glance.
We added some fun colours to liven things up! The Sector and Function, Vacancy type and Vacancy Reference Number are being displayed more prominently with colour coding to make your candidate’s searching experience easier and more enjoyable.
We also added some eye-catching icons to indicate the Location and Salary.
And have you see our brand new Share button?
Slicker than your average sharing function! Click on it and a number of icons will pop out indicating the variety of platforms for your candidates to choose from. The options include Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, E-mail and WhatsApp!
This is a massively valuable tool which allows your candidates to refer friends to this particular vacancy. The added bonus is that any applications coming in from this shared link will flow directly into your PostBox too.
Remember to actively ask your candidates to refer their friends. It may seem obvious to you that they should do so but often it honestly doesn’t even occur to most, until you bring it to mind.
This feature is scheduled to be rolled out to all Placement Partner systems early next week.

Until then, happy recruiting!
Our developers have served up yet another great innovation to make it easier for you to find the right candidates amongst all those ad responses. And so much faster too!
Placement Partner is now equipped with artificial intelligence to save you the effort of having to go through low quality records to get to better results.
With the application of some complex algorithms the system can assess which CV’s contain the most relevant results according to the Keyword Search terms you’ve selected.
In other words, if you are searching for a candidate with experience as a Project Manager in the FMCG industry, the top candidates are more likely to have worked as a Project Manager.
While the lower results may be candidates who are perhaps listing a reference, or in this case, worked as an assistant to the PM.
Bear in mind that although this artificial intelligence is designed to streamline your search process and take some of the decision-making off of your plate, no machine will be able to do the work of a seasoned recruiter’s keen eye. Computers just can’t get ‘that feeling’, the way that you can!
We’d love to know your thoughts?
Finally, we’d like to say a big thank you to all those who have taken the time to contribute your valuable feedback and suggestions!We definitely owe you a coffee…
