Rapid expansion for VideoRecruit as daily job listings reach 700
To support this demand, it is also now offering recruiters the opportunity to turn these job listings into a video, hosted by a professional presenter and with a choice of branded office backdrops.
The way in which consumers choose to receive information has changed, and like social networks such as Instagram, Vine and Facebook that have adapted to support this evolution, VideoRecruit is constantly providing new ways to make video the simplest way for companies and recruiters to find and attract the right candidates.
VideoRecruit is now offering recruiters the opportunity to have their job vacancy narrated by a professional presenter in one of ten modern office backdrops which can feature their logo. In addition to inclusion on the VideoRecruit site, video job listings will also feature on its YouTube Channel and via multiple social media channels.
The site already offers companies and recruiters the opportunity to post videos about their business, their client’s business or a specific job role currently available. However, feedback from recruiters suggests although many would like their job listings to stand out via video format as well, it’s often felt they do not have the right facilities to do it justice, be that due to the suitability of their office space or a number of other reasons. This provides those recruiters with the ideal solution to greatly improve their image and success rate by attracting the right candidates.
VideoRecruit is currently processing up to 50 job applications a day. Hundreds of job seekers are maximising the facilities available on VideoRecruit by enhancing their profiles with video introductions of themselves and sample interviews.
Simon Thompson, Director of VideoRecruit says: “The possibilities with video are endless and technology is giving us the freedom to not only create these videos, but share them via multiple channels to maximise their exposure. The algorithm of leading social media channels currently prioritises videos to make up approximately 30% of news content and this figure will continue to rise steeply as sites optimise their content type based on user demands. The micro-video trend is not the future, it is the present.”
Posting job listings remains free for companies and recruitment agents but clients can now get their own branded videos for £150 VAT. Video Recruit is also offering a 50% discount for those who register and add jobs in the next 3 months.
