Today was a very busy day for us at That Recruit. Excitingly, we launched our first partnership with Enterprise Nation. Enterprise Nation help thousands of small businesses start and grow their business. They, like us, are really passionate about small business so the partnership is a fantastic fit. Equally, we both see the true value that apprenticeships bring both to the apprentices and also to small businesses all over the country.
Our first employee was an apprentice and we genuinely value the skills and ideas apprentices bring to a small business. To further promote National Apprenticeship Week we’re going to be helping Enterprise Nation produce great content about the value apprenticeships have had on some of our clients and partners. Tomorrow, we’re featuring the Obsidian Group who have been successfully recruiting apprentices at their Chester head office for many years.
In addition, we’ve also launched a special offer for any business looking to recruit for an apprentice in March. You can now advertise for an apprentice with That Recruit for just £99 rather than £139, until the end of the month (prices exclude VAT). To take advantage, all you need to do is register and post your job online then our accounts team will manually discount your invoice! Alternatively, if you need further information you can call our “Apprenticeship Hotline” on 0844 351 0334.
Possibly the funniest moment of the day was seeing that our Head of Sales Alex and his colleague David had put out a rather humorous video of them “bouncing” in the office. I couldn’t possibly begin to describe it, so you’re better seeing for yourself. It’s great to see a new team bonding so well together!
Finally, it’s been a very busy day welcoming lots of new businesses to That Recruit. A special shout-out to the long-standing car manufacturer who has signed up with us today, we’re so pleased to have you all on board!
I have worked with That Recruit for the last four months to find suitable candidates for Abacare, our award winning care business. That Recruit recognise the need for our business to attract quality candidates to care for our service users in the comfort of their own home. I have found them to be helpful and reactive to our business needs and look forward to our continued working relationship.
Quantity of applicant received was tremendous. Required a lot of sifting but evident that the advert reached a broad spectrum of candidates.
We are happy with the service and quality of applicants.
We usually use recruitment agencies, however for this particular vacancy it seemed more appropriate to try a cheaper recruitment option. In setting up the initial advert it was very easy and quick, and the staff at ThatRecruit were very helpful and efficient in coming back to me and in authorizing the advert. The software to manage the vacancy was easy to use and the ability to mark candidates with a status was helpful. As an improvement it would be useful to be able to select all those marked as rejected and be able to bulk message them with a decline message or have an option to allow the candidates to see their status. Overall it’s been easy to manage this recruitment placement through ThatRecruit and we had an exceptional response to the advertisement with 72 applicants and having to close the advert early.
The process was easy to manage and we received a high number of responses.
Thanks again for your fantastic service don’t change anything it works great!
