The digital age has transformed the ways in which candidates encounter a position and how employers post a listing. Traditional methods such as placing an advertisement in a local newspaper or within a static web page were not only laborious, but they were often ineffective at reaching the intended audience (for both the recruiter and the candidate alike). This has all changed thanks to the presence of online job boards. However, there is still a problem that needs to be overcome. There are currently thousands of online portals to utilise and manually listing a position can be time-consuming and ineffective. This is where the power of smart job board advertising comes into play. What are the benefits of this approach and why are a greater number of companies outsourcing these solutions to third-party agencies such as ThatRecruit?
In the past, many companies would attempt to save money by procuring potential candidates through the use of in-house solutions. However, there were a few problems with this approach. Due to limited time and resources, the correct individual for a certain may be overlooked or the wrong set of skills could result in hiring a less-then-qualified prospect. It is just as important to mention that it would be nearly impossible to target all of the relevant online job portals, as there are literally hundreds within the United Kingdom alone. How can employing the services of a third-party firm help to address these pivotal issues?
ThatRecruit effectively takes the proverbial “legwork” out of finding the right candidate for a specific position. This arises from the fact that a number of different job boards are employed alongside other effective methods such as social media campaigns and even national advertising. This decidedly smart approach saves a great deal of time and in the realm of modern business, time is indeed money.
Another massive benefit is that as opposed to allocating resources towards the recruitment process itself, firms can instead place their attention back into core competencies such as sales, product development and client relations. This is often not possible with in-house approaches and should the wrong candidate be chosen, revenue generation and efficiency are both likely to suffer as a result.
One of the reasons why many modern firms are unwilling to utilise a third-party job board advertising service is that they fear that they will be kept out of the recruitment process itself. ThatRecruit has eliminated this understandable concern. Selecting the correct candidate is always in the hands of the company; there are no outside influences. Additionally, a single fee of £139 pounds is ideal for dealing with limited budgets. There are no hidden costs or other expenditures at a later date. Another important advantage is that the details of every candidate can be kept for future needs as opposed to becoming the proprietary property of ThatRecruit. In other words, this information can be used at a later date if required. This is not often the case with similar centralised job board providers.
ThatRecruit works with some of the largest online employment names in the business such as Monster, CareerBuilder and TotalJobs. Thus, firms can rest assured that they are receiving superior levels of exposure which will help to attract the right candidate at the most appropriate times.

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!
