Our experience has shown us that when it comes to senior positions, to attract the right people you will likely need to go out and find them.
Quality candidates for senior positions are amongst the smallest candidate pools in school recruitment. This therefore significantly restricts your audience of active candidates. This is why so many senior recruitment campaigns are unsuccessful – appealing to a limited pool of suitable active candidates simply isn’t enough.
Here at Chapter, our senior recruitment service takes a different approach.
Following a clear brief from you regarding exactly the type of candidate you’re looking for; our team will go out and find candidates that match that brief. We do this through a variety of innovative online search methods and digital attraction. Once we have found them, we directly contact these candidates with details of your vacancy and school, ensuring that the benefits and opportunities are clearly communicated.
With 90% of senior candidate only reading the adverts that are placed in front of them, this service ensures that your senior vacancies get the attention that they need to be successful.
At a point when attracting quality candidates is increasingly challenging, not making the extra effort to ensure that your adverts are well-written is inexcusable. This is especially true when our studies have shown that 80% of candidates would be put off by a badly-written advert.
Every school, academy or trust has their own unique story to tell and your job advert is your opportunity to tell it. Our team of professional copywriters know what candidates respond to, what they want to know and what will motivate them to hit that ‘Apply’ button.
The team at Chapter can bring your job advert to life – securing top quality applications from the best candidates.
Building trust with candidates can be crucial when it comes to securing those all-important applications.
The best way to build trust with candidates is by giving them all the information they would want without having to search too hard for it. Our studies show that 98% candidates will research a school before applying – chances are, if they have to look for too long then they simply won’t bother.
Our recruitment microsites are built to allow candidates access to all the information they might need before they apply. By making this information clear, exciting and easy to find, candidates will then not need to go elsewhere to find it.
The shorter the journey to find what they want, the more likely your prospective candidates are to apply. A dedicated recruitment site provides transparency, builds trust and will boost your response.
The fact that only 1% of teachers could identify a single school that provided a positive application experience highlights a severe problem. From our experience, we have found that whilst many schools are aware that there are faults in their recruitment process, they aren’t sure where the specific faults are or how to resolve them.
Here at Chapter, the combination of almost two decades of recruitment experience and considerable education HR expertise places us in a unique position to help schools improve their candidate experience. We will work with you to identify the areas in which your recruitment is falling short and recommend the suitable solutions.
