The most valuable aspect of our working days is without a doubt, time. When deadlines start piling up, the last thing anybody is thinking about is prioritising recruitment. This is perhaps why there has been such a strong rise in recruitment agencies in the UK. There are an estimated 40,000 recruitment agencies contributing towards the £35 billion industry. Outsourcing the responsibility of finding suitable candidates allows for more time to be spent on day-to-day tasks. However, there can be a large expense attached to using an agency. With Zoek’s hirer integrations, you can use a range of multi-posters to save time, track all applications yourself, and avoid spending your budget on recruitment agencies.
Our system allows you to streamline your hiring process, making it easy to set up and keep track of jobs. By integrating your applicant tracking software with Zoek, you can benefit from a more efficient recruitment process. This will give you more time to review applicants and build a strong shortlist of suitable candidates for interviews. These interviews could be done remotely via video software such as Zoom to save even more time.
Zoek is currently partnered with Broadbean, LogicMelon, Idibu, Recruitive and You Recruit. This list includes well-known multi-posters and software systems to help you get the most out of your recruitment drive. If your preferred integration isn’t listed above then don’t worry. Get in touch with us and we might be able to add it to our system.
Why you should use hirer integrations
If you’re not currently using any integrations, then here are a few reasons why you should consider giving it a go to aid your recruitment.
Hirer Integrations can significantly reduce the time spent on posting job adverts.
All job posting and tracking takes place in one, easy-to-manage dashboard within the Zoek hirer portal.
It keeps you in control of all your applicants rather than trusting an agency.
It builds a constant pipeline of new candidates that you can review at your discretion.
Hirer integrations are simple to set up by copying and pasting the integration key into the web service.
Recruitment mistakes can cost a business thousands
Up to 30% of the final salary of any incoming employee can be taken by a recruitment agency as their fee. Even if we assume the new employee is on the national average wage, that’s more than £5,000 in agency fees. You can only imagine how expensive senior management roles could cost in this situation.
A lack of involvement in the hiring process could lead to several candidates who haven’t been correctly assessed. This could resort in making a bad hire. The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) discovered that most businesses believe there is no cost if a bad hire has been made. However, following further research, the cost of replacing an inadequate new employee could cost a business over £100,000. Some factors businesses need to consider are the costs relating to training, lost productivity, re-advertising the role, money paid out in wages to the employee, and as mentioned at the start, time. The time the role you’re trying to fill is now going to be void even longer.
Our hirer integrations allow you the freedom to dedicate your time to what really matters. You can find more applicants, faster and smarter, without any considerable cost to your business.
