jobs.ac.uk launches e-jobs for UK universities

jobs.ac.uk, the leading international job board for careers in academic, research and science professions; has joined forces with e-Recruitment provider, WCN Plc, to launch e-jobs - a new low-cost Applicant Tracking System for UK universities.

With greater pressure on UK universities to make significant cost savings following the Government’s spending review, e-jobs has been developed as a low cost alternative to help universities streamline their entire recruitment online, deliver huge resource efficiencies and provide a better candidate experience.

Developed alongside feedback from 15 different UK universities, e-jobs is simple-to-use yet feature-rich and has been tailored to meet the specific recruitment needs of universities – but at a fraction of the cost of regular e-Recruitment systems.

e-jobs combines jobs.ac.uk’s in-depth knowledge of the HE sector with WCN’s award-winning recruitment technology and uses an innovative ‘only pay for what you use’ model which will enable more universities to move away from less efficient paper-based methods of recruiting to e-Recruitment.

Maddie Langeveld, Director at jobs.ac.uk said: “This exciting new partnership with WCN will help us to bring to universities the enormous benefits of e-Recruitment software at a fraction of the cost of a fully implemented system. e-jobs is a shared service that is a no-risk, low-cost option for universities.”

Key features of e-jobs includes easy job board posting, applicant tracking tools, end-to-end recruitment functionality, online scoring and shortlisting, online interview scheduling, pre-employment (onboarding) forms which capture pension details, the ability to record when candidate visas expire and fully customisable reports.
