Last year we released a brand new workforce strategy to help us show how we manage and support our staff. Part of this new strategy was aimed at helping us become a recognised employer of choice as well as enabling us to recruit the best people for job.
As a growing and diverse organisation we need to continually attract a broad range of high calibre candidates with the right skills to support the delivery of our housing, support and care services across Wales.
Back in June we launched a new online recruitment facility to help us streamline our recruitment process, provide an interactive experience for candidates and put our managers in control of recruiting the best person for the role.
The new system offers potential candidates a more efficient and effective service and allows us to more accurately measure recruitment performance and identify where improvements can be made.
The system gives managers more control over the whole process, enabling them to track the progress of a vacancy and monitor incoming applications. It also reduces administration and allows our recruitment team to provide expert support at every stage of the process.
For job applicants this means a professional and interactive recruitment process where they can register their details online before applying. Applying for more than one job is therefore much easier as we sometimes have very similar job roles across our care services. They can view their application history, sign up for job alerts, book their own interview slot and receive reminders by SMS. The system also makes it possible to track current applications throughout shortlisting and interview, meaning candidates can be more informed about the process and their potential success.
As part of the overall workforce strategy, we are also reviewing and updating our Recruitment Policy and Procedure. If you’d like to have a look at the jobs we currently have available, please visit our new online recruitment portal.
