British Heart Foundation Adopts Eploy Recruitment Software

Kidderminster, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 25, 2009 -- Leading charity, the British Heart Foundation (BHF), has adopted eploy®’s online recruitment software. The investment will allow the organisation to streamline its hiring function and extend access to the selection process to its line managers. The web-based recruitment service, which is hosted by eploy®, integrates transparently with the BHF candidate career portal to provide prospective candidates easy access to opportunities across the country and presents a single management interface for the charity’s recruitment function.

The BHF is one of the country’s most innovative and successful charities operating 560 shops that employ over 1700 permanent, part time and volunteer staff and an additional 430 staff at its headquarters and regional locations. The new service provides a ‘hiring manager portal’ that gives all hiring managers secure access to the process allowing new vacancies to be requisitioned online, opinions to be expressed and candidate approvals or rejections to be made at all stages. Authorisations are automatically emailed to the HR department.

The British Heart’s Foundations’ Director of Human Resources, Julie Weston, said: “We implemented eploy® because we wanted to improve the ease with which supporters and the general public could find paid and volunteer roles within the BHF. The application has also helped streamline our internal processes and improve our management of the recruitment process.”

The eploy® software provides template forms, automatic skilling from job descriptions and gives hiring managers full visibility of all candidates and short-lists. “This provides BHF with a faster and more effective recruitment procedure,” confirmed Paul Browne, Project Manager.

“We found eploy® to be a cost-effective solution that is straightforward to manage and easy to use. It addresses the nature and structure of the charity and offers optional back-office functions. The hiring portal has been well received by managers who welcome its collaborative nature and flexibility,” continued Rebecca Birs, Recruitment Manager.
