Established in 1972, Wickes has grown to become a market leader in building supplies, with 250+ stores throughout the UK and over 7000 employees. Their innovative multi-channel business model allows them to expand year on year and create the best possible service for their clients and customers.  Their growth mindset does not stop there, they take pride in employee development, attracting and nurturing the very best talent, helping drive engagement and creating a better workplace. Their new and improved careers site is a testament to that.   The aim for Wickes’ new careers site was to give them back the freedom to manage content and to provide an authentic application journey which really reflected their ‘winning behaviours’. Wickes wanted the application process to be as easy and streamlined as possible, which is why they chose Attrax.  To support these needs, Attrax provided a ‘Jobs near me’ feature which optimises Google for jobs APIs, making it easier and quicker for candidates to search for vacancies in their local area; if candidates are unable to find jobs in this way, they can quickly set up a job alert, notifying them when there are new postings. Attrax also set up a #LifewithWickes function to provide candidates with more information on what it is like working for Wickes, who Wickes are and to show the variety of people who work there. Furthermore, Wickes can now change and develop their careers site through the content management system (CMS) Attrax provides, giving them the freedom and control they desire to create an ever more personalised candidate experience.  Attrax are very proud to announce the successful launch of the new Wickes careers site. Interested in seeing the result? Head over to the Wickes site to see it in action. Want to learn more about Attrax? Feel free to contact us or alternatively, read our range of successful client stories.

For job seekers, the process of applying for roles can be time-consuming. For employers, a lengthy application process can lead to candidates abandoning their applications, thus reducing the level of top talent employers have the opportunity of choosing from. Abandoned applications may suggest a poor candidate experience, which in turn can damage the employer brand and reputation as applicants are less likely to recommend the company to others. Read one of our previous blogs on this topic.Poor candidate experience can be caused by a lack of integration between your ATS and your careers site. Many careers sites that are not integrated with their ATS’ use a standard “log-in to apply” model, which requires candidates to create an account before starting their application. On the other hand, directly integrating your ATS with your careers site can resolve this issue by simplifying the application process. This is where applicants simply give their email address at the start of an application. If the candidate were to then abandon their application, an automated email would be sent to remind the candidate to complete their application. Much like in the e-commerce world where you’d get an email reminder if you left something in your virtual basket without checking out. How can Attrax help you increase your application conversion rate?Attrax provides seamless integration with your ATS, simplifying the way site visitors apply to your job roles. Through integrating the ATS with your careers site, the candidate experience is not only improved but the application conversion rate can increase by 50%.Want to find out more?

To engage top talent with your company it is important to make your employer brand the focal point of what all candidates view and interact with. Your careers site is thus your most important advertising source.How can you ensure you are attracting and engaging the most valuable candidates?The answer: AI.Attrax leverages AI to provide a positive and relevant candidate experience by profiling users and tailoring content on your careers site towards them. For example, Vodafone’s careers site starts by building up a ‘profile’ on candidates based on their browsing history and job search. With this gathered information, featured content is then displayed to site visitors in the form of employee stories, blogs, relevant jobs. A careers site featuring AI can thus enhance the candidate experience, customising it to the site visitors’ needs and interests. Read Vodafone’s case study here.Want to find out more? Watch our Account Director David Johnston talk more about the topic of AI and how you can use it to attract top talent.

This morning it was all hands on the pump for Attrax as we took part in the first edition of TA Global Gathering, a virtual experience that provides insight and education from some of the brightest minds in TA, as well as connecting the industry through the sharing of ideas and experiences. James Saunders, Attrax CEO, hosted a well-attended session on how to build a business case for a careers site system. Using James' words: "Careers sites are often seen as time-consuming and resource-intensive creative projects. Because of this, it can fall down the list of priorities. However a great careers site has increased importance in a post pandemic world and can align with your strategic objectives. Move your thinking away from a careers site project to a careers site system, which continuously evolves and supports objectives. This can be much simpler than you might think. Based on part 1 of our our eBook series and with practical recommendations from TA experts working at IBM, IQVIA and Mitchells & Butlers, this session will give you all the information and context you need to create a successful business case for a careers site system." In case you missed James' session this morning - or if you'd like to watch it again - please enjoy the recording below:  This presentation is based on our eBook "The value of your careers site - building the business case".

Introducing a global partnership to help organisations adjust to new recruitment needs Attrax and RoboRecruiter are pleased to announce they have entered into a global strategic partnership, combining Attrax’s award-winning careers site system with RoboRecruiter’s next-generation automated engagement for recruiters, candidates and employers.With the talent acquisition industry being so impacted by the global Covid-19 pandemic in the past weeks, organisations are now recognising the importance of being able to quickly react to their new recruitment needs and ensure the quality of the applications they receive. The Attrax-RoboRecruiter partnership brings together deeply attuned skills in talent attraction, candidate engagement and in application conversions to help support clients through these changing times."The Attrax-RoboRecruiter partnership is a powerful combination. RoboRecruiter revolutionises the way in which communication in the recruitment cycle is managed, just like Attrax is a pioneer of careers site systems by being SaaS and using AI to deliver an outstanding and relevant talent experience, personalised employer branding and a strong conversion of candidates into the ATS", said James Saunders, Attrax CEO. "Partnering with Attrax unlocks a wealth of award-winning experience in digitally enhancing the candidate journey. Adding RoboRecruiter’s automated real-time engagement is a significant win-win for our mutual clients and the wider industry.  It has never been more important to ensure talent data doesn’t sit static in the ATS but is activated and up-to-date, so acute and changing hiring needs can be met consistently at scale", said Steve Lewis, RoboRecruiter Global President. The Attrax-RoboRecruiter partnership draws together a market leading careers site system which integrates with a website’s ATS and allows employers to attract the most valuable candidates by letting them self-filter themselves out of the application process with the help of RoboRecruiter’s automated conversations. By real-time screening for position, availability, location, skills/salary, businesses can satisfy their new recruitment needs by guaranteeing a positive candidate experience while also creating a shortlist of qualified candidates; all whilst accelerating the process and cutting significant costs.
