With more than 1.3 million job vacancies in the UK, competition to secure top talent is higher than in recent years. Recruitment is an ongoing struggle for many companies, with Brexit posing a considerable issue as almost 500,000 EU nationals have left the UK since the referendum


The industry itself has also undergone a vast digital transformation in recent years, with recruitment technology and digital automation proving a popular choice for many companies. This means that IT support for the recruitment sector is at an all-time high, with agencies choosing to stick to traditional methods of hiring at greater risk of not appealing to top talent. 


At Creative Networks, we offer tailored IT services ideal for the recruitment sector. We do everything from enhanced cyber security, which protects candidates’ data, to IT support that facilitates the entire process.

Why Is IT Support Important for the Recruitment Sector?

UK recruitment is predicted to keep getting more competitive as we journey through 2023. The balance of candidates to available jobs still favours potential employees, meaning that more needs to be done to secure their interest. 


Candidate attraction hinges on many things, with digital presence being highly important. IT is pivotal to reaching the right people, along with being able to process them promptly. 


Another trend at large which highlights the importance of IT services is that of company branding analysis. It is noted that technology can enhance employer branding, which helps candidates remember a business, easily depict companies they want to apply for and improve overall competitiveness. IT support can apply this branding to each element of an IT network to create a consistent and professional brand image that represents what a business stands for.


Knowing the importance of technology in recruitment is one thing, but finding the right solutions is another challenge. The task of applying technology to recruitment is specialist, which is why selecting the right agency is important. When considering how to choose an IT support company, you will want to consider their experience within the recruitment sector, as this showcases an understanding of the unique challenges that the industry faces.


With the future of recruitment looking increasingly digital, placing the right agency sets a brand up for long-term staffing success.

How Can IT Support Improve the Chance of Hiring?

IT support is a broad term that can relate to something different for every business. What IT support means for recruitment, in our opinion, is a way to facilitate high-volume applications and reduce administration duties. 


At Creative Marketing, we have created a bespoke set of services that perfectly suit busy recruiters’ needs. This improves hiring success in the following



Improved Candidate Experience


When candidates are given a streamlined digital application and interview process, their experience is greatly enhanced. 78% of candidates say that the experience they receive is a clear indicator of what the hiring company is about. 


IT support can enhance the experience by creating digital processes that make for an automated and easy application process. This often relies on bespoke systems which IT professionals can implement. Candidate experience is not just about the application or interview process, but also all of the stages in between which includes reference collecting, appointment setting, and onboarding for successful hires.


Reduced Administration Time


Using the right IT tools can reduce admin time, making hires faster. Whether you want to install a piece of bespoke software that automates the application process or optimise cloud data for easily shared content, IT support can help. Less time taken to handle an application means that candidates are selected more quickly. For top talent and competitive markets, the IT systems could be the difference between a successful hire or a lost candidate.


Improved Visibility for Job Ads    


Content and website optimisation improve a candidate’s chance of coming across an advert. Within recruitment, the first battle is appealing to the right audience. 

IT support can improve visibility by developing a more substantial IT presence for the hiring company.
