Search and Apply for Education and Teaching Jobs with the New Protocol Education Jobs App
Protocol Education releases mobile job app for candidates looking for jobs in the education sector.
Protocol Education is a specialist provider of recruitment services to the education sector, supplying Teachers, Classroom and Special Support Assistants, Instructors, One-to-One Tutors, Cover Supervisors and Nursery Nurses and other Support staff to Primary, Secondary, Special Needs schools, Pupil Referral Units and Nurseries across the UK.
The new Protocol Education jobs app was designed and developed by KeyApps and is available to download for iOS, Android and Kindle devices, with a Windows app due to be released soon. Their mobile app gives jobseekers instant access to jobs and assignments in schools across the UK, and allows them to keep in touch with the agency wherever they are.
Features include the ability to browse, search and apply for jobs; register as a candidate; upload CVs and other supporting documents, and keep up to date with the latest Protocol Education news and information. A key feature within the app enables candidates to set specific criteria and be alerted real time to the most relevant positions as soon as they are posted by the agency. With the app, Protocol Education is always engaging and communicating with the most suitable candidates.
Scott Owen, Protocol Education’s Marketing Manager, commented on the important partnership and interest in providing their established and target candidates a mobile recruitment app:
‘We took the decision to add an app to our recruitment activity because we felt it was the right tool to allow us to engage with candidates over the longer lead times which are a natural part of education recruitment. When we approached KeyApps we were delighted to discover that they shared our belief that recruitment and recruitment tools need to engage candidates in a holistic fashion and that just providing a stream of vacancies is not enough to make people stick with you through the entire recruitment process.’
Calum Ferguson, London Secondary Consultant at Protocol Education, commented on the mobile app being an effective tool:
‘The app is a great way for me to stay in touch with a range of candidates – there are obviously people we work with on a daily basis, but it is all too easy to lose track of someone on long-term assignment. By channelling the roles I am recruiting for to a candidate pool that has opted in for those particular curriculum or subject areas makes the app such a powerful tool for me.’
With competition fierce for quality temporary and contract education staff, the Protocol Education app is the perfect mobile conduit to influence and secure candidates ahead of the competition.
John Edwards, KeyApps’ Mobile Software Consultant, added:
‘Protocol Education is a highly reputable recruitment agency with unique branding and a dedicated workforce. Through the development and continued progress of the Protocol Education recruitment app, it is our aim to enhance their candidate attraction and retention systems/solutions. KeyApps is excited to be working with Protocol Education and look forward to sustained innovation with the business, particularly with focus on evolving the software to secure more contractor and temporary placements.’
