Recruiting using Jobtrain’s applicant tracking systems
Jobtrain provides online recruitment software to the entire N Brown Group. As well as JD Williams, N Brown includes household brands such as Simply Be and Jacamo. The group has been using Jobtrain’s applicant tracking systems since 2010.
“JD Williams had developed an online recruitment system in-house but our business and requirements moved on and the system wasn’t able to provide the flexibility that we needed to deliver across both our head office and contact centre areas of the business.
We approached Jobtrain on the strength of their experience of delivering solutions to retailers and call centres and as a result of overwhelmingly positive user feedback from their other clients.
The solution was delivered quickly and seamlessly provided a far more professional experience for candidates visiting our careers site and giving us a solution that is easy-to-use, dynamic, flexible and delivered alongside excellent support and advice from the Jobtrain team.
Our business is growing all the time and we now have a candidate management system that is effective and flexible to grow with us.”
