2018 was a great year for us, during which we had the chance to work on some fantastic campaigns with some inspiring employers. For us, the opportunity to help them reach the people they’re looking for and recruit outstanding candidates is the ultimate reward and it’s always great to hear the words of a happy clients.
So, we wanted to share some with you.
_“We recognised that our application processes were becoming increasingly outdated and inefficient. Not only did they call for high levels of resource to receive, review and distribute, we recognised that they also provided a poor candidate experience.
With recruitment activities spanning worldwide, we knew that we urgently needed a new system that was up to the task. We wanted a system that could provide a modern and focused approach across a range of countries, attracting the widest possible interest for our roles.
We considered a number of systems, however the JGP ATS was a clear front runner. We were confident that it would not only fulfil our needs, but it would also be easy to implement and use – another key requirement.
The JGP system has streamlined our processes, as well as giving us access to new forms of advertising. It also integrates seamlessly with other media and online job portals. Our relationship with JGP throughout the process has very much been a partnership. They have supported us throughout the development and each implantation phase and welcomed the exchange of ideas in order to ensure that the system perfectly matched our needs. Their support has proved a real dividend in developing our own understanding of the capacity of the system.
The return on investment has been immediate. Our vacancies are being presented in a more professional way, our back-office function has become significantly more efficient and we’ve seen a reduction in advertising costs, whilst accessing a wider market. The reporting functions are also allowing us to gain a better understanding on where our applications are coming from and where our budget is best spent.
The customer service that we have received from JGP has been first-class and this is something that you really can’t put a price on. The term ‘partnership’ is wrongly used to describe many service contracts. However, in the case of our relationship with JGP, it has genuinely felt like a partnership approach to the development and implementation of the system. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to modernise and streamline their recruitment functions.” _

_“We came to JGP needing to fill 19 apprentice positions within our Finance and Customer Service teams. We were confident that we would get a good response and the team delivered, even beyond expectation.
After JGP ran a targeted campaign on social media we received 122 applications. From these we were able to shortlist 80+ candidates. Needless to say, we filled all 19 positions._”

_“We knew that we urgently needed to update our recruitment processes. We were operating with inefficient, paper-based application processes and manually posting vacancies on our website. We were aware of the systems that were available to us but, as a smaller organisation, the associated prices always presented a considerable barrier.
With JGP, we were offered a system that would not only allow us to streamline and automate our processes but also worked to the budget that we had available to us. It would also allow us to easily post on multiple sites. Another key aspect was that the system would allow our managers to ‘self-serve’, giving them easy access to the relevant vacancies and review applications that come in.
After meeting with the team from JGP, we were sold. The system represented the perfect balance of quality and price and the personalised service that we received from JGP was incredible.
Since implementing the system, we have seen a significant increase in candidate reach. The system is very easy to use and highly intuitive, this has allowed us to reduce the burden on our administrative team as our managers can now do everything themselves.
We have been so impressed with both the system and the service we have received from JGP. The ongoing support and professionalism we have received throughout the process has been impressive. For a small organisation with a limited budget, to come away feeling like we have found exactly what we needed speaks volumes. We would most definitely recommend them to others in a similar position.” _
