The Employment Agents Movement – the UK’s largest association of independent recruiters with over 400 membership locations – is entering into an exciting new venture with KeyApps Ltd, who are developing a specialist TEAM Mobile Application. The application offers TEAM members the opportunity post vacancies and target and a wider, mobile candidate pool and aids TEAM in securing interest from potential new members, while promoting news and events.
John Edwards (Mobile Application Consultant) who has direct experience within the recruitment industry, having worked for Elan IT for three years, stressed the importance of an effective mobile recruitment strategy.
“Smartphone and tablet devices are securing an increased level of candidate interaction compared to a traditional website. With candidates no longer considering their laptop portable, it is imperative that recruiting agencies are focusing on their own mobile strategies. The candidate experience is as important to KeyApps as offering agencies the development, release and promotion of a personalised application driven by placements and referral placements.”
By becoming a TEAM service provider, KeyApps are able to offer its members a 25% discount on the Mobile Recruitment App development fee, making a mobile strategy that improves the candidate experience even more appealing.
Samantha Dawkins, who manages the production of demo applications, commented on the mutually beneficial venture.
“The new business relationship between KeyApps and TEAM heralds the beginning of an exciting time for both companies. We are highly focussed on our mission to help recruiters and agencies embrace mobile technology by adopting mobile strategies, and we feel that this venture will prove beneficial for all involved. Our products and services will gain TEAM and its members’ exposure; promote stronger relationships and, most importantly, secure placements and improve company / candidate communication and satisfaction.”
