Following on from our success at the PPMA awards in May, we are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for the Personnel Today award for’Innovation in Recruitment’ for our work with Hackney Homes.
In October 2013, Hackney Homes commissioned Jobsgopublic to run a complex recruitment campaign to fill 43 diverse and varied Operational, Technical and Managerial roles following a significant reorganisation.
A campaign of this scale required a dynamic and unique approach to achieve its objectives in a manner that successfully communicated Hackney Homes’ vision, values and culture.
A multi-platform attraction strategy was devised utilising online search methods and digital and print advertising to ensure the widest possible reach. A purpose-built microsite was created to which all candidates were directed too candidates then applied via Jobsgopublic system (ATS), which was utilised for filtering, communication and reporting.
The campaign saw a great response and in partnership with Birmingham City Council’s Resourcing Team candidates were shortlisted, online assessments and telephone interviews were carried out and 185 candidates were put forward for interview.
The campaign was deemed to be a great success, and Hackney Homes were very impressed with the high calibre of candidates we shortlisted.
This is a campaign that we are extremely proud of and are delighted by this continued recognition of our achievements.
The ceremony will be held on November 18th and we will be keeping our fingers crossed that we will be adding to our silverware collection, we may even invest in a cabinet!
