Why the care industry needs a recruitment process that is mobile ready

The social care industry employs more than 1.5 million people but almost 400,000 leave their jobs each year which means that there are many vacancies available. However, only 35% of care businesses are providing potential candidates with an exciting experience using a mobile device when looking for a job.

This highlights the importance of optimising the recruitment process to find the right people for your role. Mobile devices play a large part in our lives and therefore, should also play a part in the way people look for jobs. This clearly indicates that you should consider optimising your recruitment process in order to find the best candidates.

You are missing out on great candidates

More and more people are now applying for jobs using their mobile devices because it is accessible wherever they are and they can do it at a time when it suits them. If you factor this into your recruitment process you could see your applications increase significantly and that can help you to find the right people for your roles.

Candidates are disappearing

When people want to apply for a job, they want to do it with ease because that is the world we live in. Clunky websites with poor loading times and poor optimisation will have them turning away in their droves.

Provide candidates with a good experience

Candidates like to know all there is to know about the role you are offering. They want to know where your business is located, what you offer and why they should apply for your role.

Giving them access to all of this information in one simple place and on their mobile devices will make a world of difference to the way in which users interact with your business.

This level of interaction improves the whole application process and will give your business a more professional and forward thinking image.

So why do you need to be mobile ready?

The world we live in is evolving at an incredible pace and that means you have to do all you can to keep up. Other businesses will be looking at new ways in which to showcase their jobs and you need to look at ways to offer more.

A mobile recruitment app that puts your business out there can provide users with a one-stop shop where they can engage with you from the comfort of their home or even when they are on the train.
