As a small business owner it can be very hard juggling the many tasks required to get your business off your ground. When you don't have a lot of staff around you, you'll take on a lot of roles yourself. Accountant, Bookkeeper, Office Manager, Sales, Marketing... and of course recruiter.
Finding and hiring the best people to join your organisation can be a little daunting, but the process is not as complex as you think. Recruitment agencies do a great job of packaging up the recruitment process and making it easy for you to understand. But there are tools available, such as JobPage, that simplify the recruitment process and can save you thousands of pounds too.
Recruitment agencies often charge 15-20% of the salary of the person you hire as their fee. So if you hired a marketing manager at £40,000, that's £8,000 you'll have to pay your recruitment agency. If you hire five staff like this, then this will cost you £40,000 of your hard earned profit.
JobPage is an easy to use online tool that will guide you step-by-step through the entire recruitment process. From helping you write a killer job description, to distributing your jobs to job boards and social networks (such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn), collecting CVs and job applications and helping you to shortlist the best people for interview.
JobPage’s built in Applicant Tracking System (ATS) will track every person that applies to your jobs and will store all of their details, including the CV and resume safely and securely away from your email inbox. Never worry about losing or misplacing a CV/resume again!
When someone applies to one of your jobs, they’ll receive a friendly and personalised email, confirming their application has been received. Their details will then appear immediately in your JobPage recruiting dashboard ready for you to review.
Reviewing job applications is very simple. For each applicant you'll see their name, contact details, plus answers to all of the questions that you set on your job application form. You'll also see a "visual social profile" with a summary of the applicant's professional experience online, include their LinkedIn profile, latest tweets and links to all of their social network profiles. If we’ve managed to source a photo from one of their social network profiles, we’ll show that on their application too. This will help you get a really good feel for the applicant, even before interviewing them.
Plus, each applicant can be privately scored and notes stored against their profile.
