SDW eRecruit is a new unique recruitment model for the shipping & logistics industry, based around online advertising – using the leading job boards and online channels to maximise exposure, ensuring that your vacancy is seen by the right people. We truly believe that our eRecruit service will transform the recruitment industry and make the hiring process fair, affordable and transparent.

Why advertise online?

Today’s job seekers are actively looking for a new role using online job boards & social media networking sites. Recent Surveys from recruitment industry experts show that over 85% of active candidates are searching & applying for jobs online, with 74% of all online job related searches starting in Google.

It’s a secret the recruitment industry has been trying to keep for a long time, claiming that the majority of their candidates come from referrals or their network, with some claiming to use more aggressive methods such as head-hunting – in most cases this is not true.

Statistics show that 80% of all successful placements in the UK comes from Job Boards – fact.

However, that said, the strongest candidates are the least committed to finding a new job and are only searching online for about 10 to 15 minutes, so you need to be advertising your vacancy in the right place, your advert needs to be fully optimised so it appears at the top of the job listings (ideally the top), you need to sell your company & the opportunity, ensure there is a clear call to action and above all you need to respond to all applicants, even the not so good ones – so it’s not as easy as just writing a couple of sentences, and posting it on a job board that you’ve chosen at random. This is where our unique & innovative solution comes in – SDW eRecruit.

So what is included in our eRecruit solution?

  • We will write a compelling & fully optimised advert with a clear call to action, ensuring maximum response (on average 60% more applications & better quality / suitability of candidate)
  • We will advertise your role on all the leading job boards & online channels where the relevant candidates go – basically we fish where the fish are
  • We pro-actively search & contact potential candidates on both our extensive internal database & on the databases of all the leading job boards, to make them aware of your vacancy and encourage them to apply
  • We will continuously promote your vacancy across all social media platforms throughout the duration of the campaign
  • We will include your vacancy in our weekly eshots, emailed to thousands of targeted job seekers based on specialism & location, ensuring maximum exposure of your vacancy
  • We will give you access to your very own easy to use Candidate Management System in which all applications will be automatically acknowledged, plus will appear in your dashboard for you to review 24/7 on any device. You can then manage, interact, interview and ultimately hire as many applicants as you wish
  • We will filter all applications, highlighting only the candidates that meet your criteria, so you don’t have to read every application & shortlist yourself. The filtering takes place daily & is done manually.
  • We will ensure all applications are acknowledged and that all unsuccessful candidates are politely rejected & thanked for their interest, ensuring we maintain your employer brand & every applicant has a positive experience of your hiring process
  • You will have your own dedicated Account Manager, who is always at the end of the phone & always happy to help, and provide their full support to ensure the campaign is a success
