Everything we do at SmartSearch centres around ensuring that our clients get the people that they want. If they’re not happy then neither are we. That’s why there’s no greater reward than the words of a genuinely satisfied customer.
“Working with Jobsgopublic’s Smartsearch service gave us access to candidates that I don’t believe we would have attracted if we had just advertised the post ourselves. It was helpful to be presented with a suggested shortlist based on in-depth telephone interviews, alongside detailed feedback and analysis of each candidate’s strengths and areas for development. This enabled us to tailor our questions and have a better quality of conversation at the final interview stage. I believe the process gave candidates not only more challenge but also a more professional impression of the council.”

“Northants OPCC have used Jobsgopublic’s SmartSearch twice in the last two months. Both times we have recruited outstanding people to help us take forwards the Police and Crime Commissioners strategic objectives. This has only been possible due to the service provided by Jobsgopublic. They provided immediate and comprehensive advice, guidance and subsequent recruitment service. Their reach attracted a broad range of potential candidates that we would not have been able to find without them. Detailed discussions with the Jobsgopublic team meant they fully understood the requirements of the role and the team and were able to assist with shortlisting and make clear recommendations. We now have two additional high quality members of staff who bring additional quality and capability. I strongly recommend Jobsgopublic’s SmartSearch.”

“HM Land Registry recently had the huge task of recruiting a new Deputy Director of Strategic Planning and Performance.
This was a crucial position for the organisation – one that could not be left to chance. We decided to call upon Jobsgopublic’s SmartSearch solution. Having targeted search to support us with this post was so important and this ensured we achieved a successful outcome.
SmartSearch provided us a quick and efficient service which led to an excellent appointment. The campaign delivered a strong shortlist making the only difficult decision which candidate to appoint!”
Caroline Anderson, HR Director,
HM Land Registry
“Having previously been unsuccessful in recruiting a new Head of ICT, we decided to take a more proactive approach by using SmartSearch.
After a thorough briefing with the team, we felt that they had a good understanding what we were looking for – giving us full confidence in them.
We were impressed with the range of search and marketing tools they used, knowing they would reach a wider audience of candidates than we had access to.
This resulted in us having a strong shortlist of four strong candidates to interview.
Knowing each candidate on our shortlist had been pre-assessed via telephone interview saved us considerable time and gave us confidence in who we wanted to take forward to the final interview
We were delighted with the outcome and will undoubtedly use SmartSearch again – we would thoroughly recommend them to others.”
