Platform features

Unless otherwise stated, the following features come as standard with all our recruitment agency sites. All functions can be turned on or off to suit your specific requirements. One of the questions we get asked most often is what does the admin system look like and is it easy to use, so we dropped this quick video for you here. The rest of the features are listed below.

 

 

1: Works on ALL devices

It is essential that your website is presented in the best way after all first impressions count. But it does not stop there. Specific devices offer particular challenges to website developers and users.

 

Which is why in 2007 RecruiterWEB invented the first duel site CMS which had a dedicated desktop, tablet and mobile phone design. We indeed were mobile-first, and ten years before Google asked for it.

2: GDPR compliance

GDPR is no joke and with ever-increasing cybersecurity attacks aimed at the small business (the last global report suggested 77% of all cyber-attack were with SME’s).

 

RecruiterWEB has, we believe, the most robust approach to cyber-crime and GDPR by not storing personal data on the website. The theory being if there is no data to steal or go out of date, then your site will not be as much of a target.

Google For Jobs, in its purest form, is about putting some data on your web pages to a set of given rules for structured data that Google wants. Google wants it this way so it can sort your job data better in the Google for job search tools.

 

But just ticking that box is not enough. We teach our clients how to avoid content mistakes which will get you penalties and instead of waiting for Google to scrape your jobs, which is not guaranteed, we send the job data direct to the Google For Jobs API.

With your blog, you get to answer the content needs for your clients and candidates which can clean up when it comes to generating traffic with what we refer to as the WWWWWH content (Who, What, When, Where, Why, How).

Why provide a salary survey, they are old news right? Wrong. If you have read about our other features, you will see a consistent message that Google states 30% of the searches on its platform are employment-related.

 

Pay advice by job seekers and or what an employer should pay is the 3rd or 4th most search for information next to jobs. Provide that data for your niche, and you are providing essential data to job seekers and employers alike.

 

Promoting your salary survey is also a subtle way of selling your services or keeping your brand upfront and central. This is especially the case with active and passive job seekers and decision-makers who may have become war wounded by their sales approaches.

Surveys lead to the ability to have quality follow up with your candidate and client base alike. We ran a study for one of our clients using this service called “Confessions of a PA”.

 

The survey produced a significant insight into what PA’s were thinking about their jobs, employers the future of the role and what direction they wanted to take in the role. The advice proved invaluable to 50 leading heads of HR in the city of London.  As a by-product, this produced 85 highly qualified PA’s and Executive PA’s who said they wanted to change jobs and could the recruiter help.

 

People sometimes struggle to know what to write for a blog. Well, a survey is a great place to generate blog content from the answers and insight your study will provide.

That is basically a lie, or at best a poorly informed Javelin thrower saying they have the Olympics when asked what sport they compete in.

 

SEO is arrived at by following 250+ strategies, 11 of which are related to your website and how it is set up.  The other 230 are from using Off-Page SEO and Social Media to gain authority and trust for your website.

26: ATS/CRM Integration options

Integration of website with ATS/CRM is somewhat of a Marmite subject in truth. Just like the condiment, you will either love or hate the results. The love part comes if you are getting the right candidate traffic and it will land in your ATS, and all will be happy.

 

The hate comes if you are getting the wrong candidate traffic and then your database is going to be potentially flooded with tree surgeons from Brazil, looking for SAP jobs in London paying £1000 per day.

29: Platform reliability & support

Service uptime

 

This is where RecruiterWEB scores a world champion track record. The RecruiterWEB platform service uptime measured from 2004 to date of 99.997%.

 

To put that in perspective compared to our biggest competitor, we have had less service downtime in 15 years than they have had in the past year.

 

Core system bugs

 

Since 2004 we have committed 24000+ person-hours to refine our code. We have not had a core system code bug for over ten years.

 

To put that into perspective compared to our biggest competitor, we have had fewer bugs to fix in ten years than they have needed to fix in the last 90 days.

 

Planned maintenance

 

To keep our client’s sites running, we like to get ahead of the game, so we don’t charge the lowest fee possible and hope nothing goes wrong.

 

The same as the other critical system software vendors you likely rely upon, we have a planned routine to keep the code in top condition and performing well. To achieve that our clients typically pay £80 to £100 per month. That does not make us the cheapest vendor, but when you realise the professional-grade to which we work to, to keep you safe online, then you will appreciate the value for money we offer.

 

Unlimited support

 

Our founder is alerted to every request of every client, and he reviews personally any issue a client has. All staff then have to report when the task is fixed and any future lessons we need to take.

 

98% of the support request we get are a user error when using the admin tools of the website, almost all of which are due to not watching the videos before making changes.

 

Clients can ask questions as many times as they want; they will be answered in several ways. The first of which is to use our support ticketing system, which is managed by email. We may then elect to change or fix what the client needed and send a video reminder of what to do, and / or call the client to organise a reminder of how to complete X or Y.

 

 

Service Level Agreement

 

Simple faults we clear daily, system critical flaws we target to clear in under an hour. However, do the robustness of our code and the servers they are run on we have not had one of these critical events for over ten years.

 

30: Cybersecurity/protection

77% of all cybercrime is targeted at the SME business. They target SME’s of all kinds, but rich pickings can be had with any SME who stores lots of personal data. Recruiters are mostly SME in size and store lots of personal data. So, you are at risk depending on which website supplier you use.

 

The best kind of risk when it comes to cybersecurity is no risk. So, to give our clients the no-risk option we have made our site in such a way that the candidate and clients to not need to register with the site and make a portal page where they are forced to store personal data. Instead, we now have straight through job applications, CV registrations to your preferred secure source be it your email, job posting vendor and/or ATS/CRM, provider.

 

We took this option on the principal that having no data to steal or ransom you with is best practise.  Our competitors prefer to massage their egos with talk of ISO 9000 this and Cyber Essentials that, but the harsh truth is no data is ever truly safe, so why risk keeping it in your website when you are going to use it in your ATS.

 

There is a secondary benefit to this approach in that you also do not have redundant/duplicate data being stored that will get you into trouble with the ICO and GDPR. No data to go out of date or be stolen means no exposure to GDPR.

 

There is also a massive benefit to your website’s users in that the process to engage with you is more straightforward slicker and more accessible.

 

Not all vendors are created cyber equals.

 

Ok so this is going to read like we are the proverbial Turkey voting for an end to Christmas here, but the best vendor for any recruitment company to choose is a vendor who made their own code for the features their website offer. Why? Glad you asked.

 

The reason is simple software like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Umbraco and Unspecified PHP is inherently security flawed by the nature that vendors of these tools have to go to other vendors they never meet and do not know to get plugins to make the tech work. What is a plugin? A plugin is a piece of code created by a random vendor to perform a task like be your job search, or your contact us page.

 

So where is the problem in having plugin tech? The problem comes that the plugin vendors do not work with each other and so their code is not synched and nor is the updating of that code to patch security flaws. A typical site will need 10-20 plugins, so potentially 10-20 different suppliers. All software has security flaws, including the core code (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Umbraco and Unspecified PHP). Which means your site will get out of date and out of sync, quit quickly with your plugins and with your core operating system. Now ask yourself this question is any other software you use made up of 20 other suppliers? Like is your ATS using 20 different suppliers code, your accounts software? The answer is no and nor should your website be.

 

WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Umbraco and Unspecified PHP platforms are the natural hunting ground for hackers, as code being out of sync is the easiest way for a hacker to enter the code and then do their worst. Dedicated vendors do not have the problem of using multiple plugins, so are no so widely exposed.

 

31: Design Options

We have five core design plans our customers can choose from which we have given an outline of here.

 

Design plan 1:

 

Allows the user to choose from one of 20 pre-made designs. These designs have been made with universal design appeal for the typical recruitment company operating in any niche/location and of any size. Though because of budget they are often used by the smaller or start up recruiter.

 

Unlike other vendors in this price range, we do permit changes and movement options to our pre-made design. So, each design template comes with a variety of customer tweaks.

 

Design plans two through to five then just extend your ability to have a unique or custom-made page for your project. Examples of pages you may choose to have a custom design for on your project are as follows. Please, not this is an example list and not exhaustive of all the pages you can choose to be custom made for your project.
