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 dual 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.

 

The good-to-know pitch about ‘features’ on ALL devices

 

  • Works on all devices: computer, laptop, tablet, mobile and even your watch
  • Mobile-first with dedicated mobile design option
  • Dedicated tablet design option
  • Dedicated TV design option
  • Our planned maintenance program keeps this compatibility current when browser updates take place
  • These are all standard for all our websites

GDPR compliance

GDPR is no joke, with ever-increasing cybersecurity attacks aimed at the small business (the last global report suggested 77% of all cyber-attacks were on SMEs).

 

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and GDPR by not storing personal data on the website – the theory being that if there is no data to steal or go out of date, then your site will not be as much of a target.

 

The good-to-know pitch about GDPR compliance

 

  • Software is created on a ‘privacy by design’ principle
  • No candidate data stored, so cannot become out of date
  • Self-deleting job alert data

Google for Jobs feature

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 Jobs search tools.

 

But just ticking that box is not enough. We teach our clients how to avoid content mistakes that 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. This way, we ensure your data is given the best possible chance of ranking well on Google for Jobs.

Testimonials not only give credibility to the reader, but they can provide essential credibility and so give ‘Trust Rank’ to your site and increase its ranking potential overall. In the past, we have built search engine rankings for new clients solely on the strength of pages like case studies.

 

Used correctly, they will gain you a special kind of low volume, high-quality traffic to your site, which is very useful when trying to tick all the boxes for SEO.

Blog feature

A well-written, promoted blog, with the right content, is a passive candidate and new business client magnet. As we have written before, Google states that 30% of daily searches are employment-related. 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).

 

Simply put, if your blog content answers these questions for your niche/sectors, then you are going to rank for the search terms that make up a big slice of that 30%: terms that are employment-related, but are not pure job searches.

 

Used correctly, they will gain you a special kind of low volume high-quality traffic to your site, which is very useful when trying to tick all the boxes for SEO.

 

The good-to-know pitch about the Blog features

 

  • Search feature for your blogs
  • Tag and view blogs by their tag
  • Run a full blog
  • Blog by niche

Content is King or Queen, as they say. So, like other features, RecruiterWEB has to promote your credibility as a recruiter in your niche.  We also have a Knowledge Hub feature, which you can use to promote data to any audience, and/or to a gated audience which is password protected.

 

Used correctly, this will gain you a special kind of low volume high-quality traffic to your site, which is very useful when trying to tick all the boxes for SEO.

Salary survey tool/service

Salary Survey

 

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 searched-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.

 

The good-to-know pitch about Salary Survey features

 

  • Instant salary checks for candidates
  • Instant ‘what to pay’ check for clients
  • Salary survey email alert for candidates
  • Salary survey email alert for candidates
  • These features are all standard for all clients

 

Need more?

  • If you need surveys made into presentations, we can ensure that for you
  • If you have a Salary Survey requirement we have not covered, we will estimate and prepare it for you on approval

 

Candidate Champion Mode

Candidate Champion

 

Candidates are clearly the lifeblood of the recruitment industry, given you can’t make a fee without one. Many recruiters in many niches across the UK and wider globe choose therefore to market candidates to a client.

 

Our Candidate Champion Mode assists with the marketing of candidates in multiple ways. Firstly, you have a place to publish and share key parts of the candidate’s skills anonymously. From these pages, employers can then request to speak to you about them, interview them, etc.

 

Data can be manually created or can be synced with your ATS to pull data that will make the profiles meaningful.

 

Another upside of these pages is that those who search for candidates online will see your data in search results and thus bring you new client opportunities. Maybe even your next big account.

 

The good-to-know pitch about our Candidate Champion features

 

  • Search feature for candidates you have to hire
  • Individual profiles for candidates you wish to promote (anonymity protected)
  • Request more info on the candidate
  • Request to interview a candidate from their profile
  • Employers can set candidate alerts for job seekers they wish to hire

Client Microsite & Campaign Mode

Client Campaign Mode

 

Our Client Campaign Mode is a tool which will allow you to brand your jobs with employer logos, through to providing your clients with a mini career site.

 

Why would you want to publish who you are working with? In many circles of recruitment, recruiters are now partnering with their clients online. This used to be the norm in campaign advertising in the press, and now it is fast becoming the norm online.

 

The advantages you can offer your key employers are vast, not least getting their job content onto Google for Jobs and using your own brand leverage in conjunction with theirs in specialist niches.

 

The good-to-know pitch about our Client Campaign Mode

 

  • Branded microsites for promotion of an employer
  • The site carries branded jobs
  • The site has pages/features to tell the client’s story fully
  • Recruiters can be promoted who manage this employer’s account
  • Jobseeker traffic can go directly to the recruiter, direct to the employer, or both
  • These features are all standard for all clients

 

 

  • If you have a requirement we have not covered, we will estimate and make it for you on approval

Reporting tools

The who, what, when, where, why, how knowledge/insight about your website and the use of it.

Search Engine Optimisation tools

RecruiterWEB was the first recruitment website vendor to provide a recruitment website where Google could find each job and index it. Latterly, we also invented some AI to auto-build landing pages for job content to match job seeker searches directly.

 

But don’t be fooled by the snake oil peddled by other recruitment website vendors – SEO is not one thing, and many try to confuse their clients and potential buyers by just saying their website has SEO. 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.

 

The good-to-know pitch about our Search Engine Optimisation tools

Integration and XML Job Posting features

In 2004, we made an open API for any vendor with your permission and the right credentials to be able to send you jobs data and for us to be able to supply job applications and/or CV submission back to them. That feature remains today and is free of charge for any vendor and our clients to use. Be aware that while we offer this free of charge, the job posting vendors will charge you to make a feed from their service to your website. This is out of our control, and the cost is not set by or paid to us.

ATS/CRM Integration options

Integration of websites 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 potentially going to be flooded with tree surgeons from Brazil, looking for SAP jobs in London paying £1000 per day.

The information is fully secure, and all email transactions are deleted from our servers upon receipt of confirmation from your mail server, to ensure no data is stored long-term which could be exposed to hackers. More about this is covered in our cybersecurity area.

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 clients’ 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 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 requests 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 these 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, due to 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.

 

Cybersecurity/protection

77% of all cybercrime is targeted at the SME business. Cybercriminals target SMEs 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 do 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 and CV registrations to your preferred secure source, be it your email, job posting vendor and/or ATS/CRM provider.

 

We chose this option on the principle that having no data to steal or blackmail you with is best practice.  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 offers. Why? Glad you asked.

 

The reason is that simple software like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Umbraco and Unspecified PHP is inherently security flawed: 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, such as your job search or your ‘contact us’ page.

 

So where is the problem in having plugin tech? The problem is that the plugin vendors do not work with each other, and so their code is not synced, 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, quite 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? 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 not so widely exposed.
