Owners of the Belper News, Johnston Press, plans to extend its recruitment offering with its new fixed price recruitment service – The SmartList.co.uk – designed to help employers fill vacancies quickly and cost-effectively.
A pilot, launched this week, allows businesses seeking new staff for mid-level vacancies to pay a fixed fee for a pre-screened short-list of qualified candidates.
Currently, businesses using traditional advertising methods often find that they receive very high volumes of applications that need to be sorted internally, whilst traditional recruitment consultancies, which help to eliminate the time spent sifting through CVs, can be costly. The SmartList offers a great alternative, by combining recruitment consultancy type services with newspaper and job board advertising for one low fixed cost.
Employers are able to submit details of their vacancy and The SmartList team will then prepare a recruitment brief.
