Business in the Community Improves Recruitment Efficiency through Vacancy Filler Software

The charity Business in the Community has adopted the Vacancy Filler Recruitment Software product to improve its recruitment processes. The organisation aims to use the new software to enhance the experience of both the candidate and recruiting manager, reduce the administrative burden of the HR team, and provide better monitoring and evaluation.
Business in the Community is one of the Prince’s Charities, a group of not-for-profit organisations of which HRH Prince Charles is President. Its purpose is to create a fairer society and a more sustainable future by working with businesses to drive change and develop an integrated approach to running a responsible business. As an organisation it recruits both internally and externally around 100 times each year.
The facility for more comprehensive reporting on areas such as equality and diversity information was one of the main drivers in adopting the Vacancy Filler system, as was the requirement to reduce reliance on paper-based folders and spreadsheets on who was hired or rejected.
The HR department’s five staff are all involved in different aspects of the recruitment process, while many recruiting managers are based out of the office. Access to a system that provided up to date information on progress and enabled them to record decisions was therefore essential.
Caroline Deacon, Human Resources Adviser at Business in the Community said, “With the new system, anyone in the HR team can easily deal with all candidate queries regardless of who is dealing with the actual vacancy. Vacancy Filler will improve the efficiency of the HR department by streamlining what is currently a labour and time intensive recruitment process.”
