Berkeley Scott launches new website as more than 80% of jobseekers now search online

Berkeley Scott Recruitment Specialists launched their new website today (Wednesday 4 July 2012).  The website will feature a host of new and innovative features including a candidate login system and the ability to upload and edit CVs.  The website is just the first stage in Berkeley Scott’s & lsquo;Recruitment Technology Development Project’, which will see them lead the way in online job application services.

Berkeley Scott, which has more than 27 years experience in the hotels, hospitality and catering sector, says that more than 80% of job seekers use the Internet to search for work. Online job searching now accounts for more than 75% of new hires.

In order to meet this demand, Berkeley Scott’s website now offers:

Candidate Login System: candidates are able to change and update their details themselves, providing more accurate data for Berkeley Scott Recruitment Consultants to find them a job that suits them most.

Social Media Connection: Berkeley Scott is available on Twitter @BerkeleyScottHQ, LinkedIn and Facebook (BSHospitalityJobs & BerkeleyScottTemps).

Regular customised email communication for both clients and candidates.

Hot Plate Candidate Blog: a blog aimed at candidates and job seekers that will include tips and advice, how-to-guides, and best practices.

Hospitality Matters Industry News: a daily newsfeed written by Berkeley Scott hospitality and catering experts. It will include the most current news regarding the hotel, restaurant, bar and pub, and catering industries.

Daily automated jobs by email: the latest temporary and permanent roles in hotels, restaurants, contract catering, pubs, bars and leisure will be issued on a daily email.

Mark Darby, Managing Director at Berkeley Scott, said: “Although these features are expected on most automated job boards, it’s extraordinary to see them on a recruitment consultancy’s website. The new Berkeley Scott website aims to combine features of an industry job board, a historically successful recruitment consultancy and an industry news hub providing the latest insights.

“With an increasing number of jobseekers using the Internet to search for and find work, we must provide a platform from which they can do it. Berkeley Scott has never been afraid of doing something new, of being innovative and forward thinking. The website is just the first stage in a project that will see Berkeley Scott continue to be at the forefront of recruitment in the hotels, hospitality and catering sector.”
