Important features of a recruitment website

In the competitive world of job seeking, your recruitment agency website has never been as important as it is today. With so many different websites that offer employment opportunities, it's likely that your job seeker will have found your advertisement on a different site. This means that you need to have a recruitment website that stands out from the crowd and offers something unique.

In this blog post, we'll give you some important functions for a recruitment website. These functions are essential if you want to stand out from the crowd and find the right candidates for your recruitment agency.

Why you need a recruitment website

A recruitment website is an online presence for your company that will allow you to attract talent and showcase your recruitment business with relative ease. You can use YOUR website to post vacancies and the qualifications and other requirements for the position.

You may think that you don't need a recruitment site and you'll be fine just using social media to market your business, but in today's competitive environment it's more important than ever. It's not just about getting your message out there anymore, it's about standing out from the crowd and attracting the right talent. It's also about proving to clients and candidates that you take your business seriously and professionaly by showing them that you invest time, money and effort in your online presence.

If you want to stand out from your competitors, then these are some of the functions you want to include on your site:

Job searching

At the very least your website will require an accurate, typo tollerant sortable job search that takes both keywords and location as parameters

Job management system

A system to add, edit, expire and promote jobs on your website through a back end control panel or securely accepting jobs via a third party job posting system.

Application management system

A system to manage, view and delete applications for your open positions.

A job alert system

A way for candidates to setup email alerts for jobs or search phrases that will automatically notify them when a position that matches their criteria is posted on your recruitment website

A CV Drop system

A simple one click system that allows candidates to quickly, securely and compliantly send you their up-to-date resume with little hassle or fuss.

A candidate registration system and portal

Your website will benefit massivly from functionality that allows a candidate to register and keep thier details up-to-date. In the long run this will save you countless hours of data input and will allow your candidates to keep you apprised of changes to their contact details and work circumstances.

Job shortlist functionality

Candidates like to put multiple jobs in their basket and apply for them all at once with one simple and concise form, make sure this simple but effective functionality is on your requirements for your website to keep them happy!

A contact form

This is one of those functions that people might not think too much about but is actually quite important for any recruitment website. A contact form allows applicants to send their resume directly to your email inbox without having to fill out a long application form first (or worse yet, mailing it!) This function enables recruiters/managers/HR professionals contact potential candidates as soon as they see a promising profile. The contact form also enables applicants engage with the company which increases the chance of being contacted by them later on down the line.

Your company information

It goes without saying you should include your company contact details on your website, however, there are also legal requirementsfor limited companies in England and Wales which require you to include your registered address and company number on all forms of brochures, marketing, invoices, websites, stationary etc.

Google for jobs integration

If you want good quality free traffic for your recruitmetn website then making sure your job details output valid Google for Jobs schema is essential.

How to build your recruitment website

You can certainly pick up free or very cheap website package from one of the thousands of self taught designers on the planet, however, this has attached risks. While they may know design or have a little development knowledge, can they really and honestly say they have good knowledge about the nuances and intricacies of recruitment. For example, I know how to change the oil on my car but I wouldn't know the first ting about rebuilding the engine so I leave it to someone who does, because, in the long term this is what's best for my car and a recruitment business is no different, in fact a wrongly built recruitment website can do way more harm than good if it's not configured correctly or worse is insecure and becomes the target of a hacker that steals all of your sensitive data! Nodex as a company has been building industry leading recruitment agency websites for over ten years utilising multiple decades of technical and recruitment experience which we have used to create one of the most advanced and fullest featured recruitment software platforms available anywhere on the internet.

Andrew and the Nodex team have been superb from the moment I asked for a demonstration on their CRM and i knew they would be the right business for me from them. Really easy to speak to, helpful and will go out of their way to provide first class customer service.
