The Sheffield City Region Job Board is a new state-of-the-art facility that enables recruiting organisations within the region to advertise their jobs online at no cost. The Board is a joint initiative between Sheffield City Region; the 9 local authorities that make up the City Region and TribePad, a Sheffield-based software organisation, specialising in bespoke recruitment sites for major names like the BBC, KFC and Tesco.
Recent changes to Google algorithms mean that geographic and sector-specific websites will start to move much higher up the rankings than the generic job board sites, and this is an issue that SheffieldCityRegion.jobs is seeking to address.
Sheffield City Region now has a bespoke platform to assist organizations coming into the region with their recruitment requirements - something that sets them apart from other locations. For indigenous organisations, it provides an opportunity to use the latest technology in their recruitment processes.
From a jobseeker perspective, it offers an easy to use platform that brings together local jobs into a dedicated facility. In the large-scale redundancy scenario, the opportunity to present local vacancies in a single platform is very compelling.
The aim is for SheffieldCityRegion.jobs to be the ‘go to’ place for organisations to advertise jobs in Sheffield and the surrounding areas, and for candidates to find new jobs within their locality.
Each organization that has vacancies, will have their own landing page (to include imagery / brief outline of the organisation / what it’s like to work for them and current vacancies) with a link (if required, to their own website). See a few examples below:
Organisations wishing to post vacancies go through a simple registration process, in order that the quality of the organisations / jobs can be maintained. Admin rights can then be granted to allow for organisations to edit their landing page and post / delete / amend their own vacancies.
Candidates can benefit from the following by registering with the Job Board:
