We have launched our Spencer Ogden Jobs App - the first mobile recruitment app targeted at the entire energy skills sector. The practical yet stylish app, which is free to download and use, is available on IOS, Android and Windows.
The colourful app is updated in real time with vacancies in the eight sectors for which Spencer Ogden recruits: Oil & Gas, Renewables, Power, Smart, Nuclear, Energy Trading, Mining, Technology and Energy Finance. Candidates can set up personal profiles, browse jobs, upload their CVs and apply to their chosen positions with the touch of a screen or via their Linkedin profile.
Jobseekers can filter their searches by sector, location and salary, and break down the returned vacancies into contract and permanent. The salary slider tool enables users to set their expectations, and a one-touch PAYE calculator gives an indication of take-home pay.
Once an application has been made it is automatically saved for review. The ‘track applications’ button enables users to quickly review which roles they have applied for and to monitor the status of each. Candidates are notified when interviews are secured and when job offers are made.
“It’s surprising how few recruitment agencies have launched app versions of their job sites,” says David Spencer Percival, CEO of Spencer Ogden. “Our modern workforce is ultra-mobile and wants the option of accessing information in multiple ways from any location. If an agency is to remain competitive it is essential that it meets the demands of its customers; this app does just that.”
And the new tool is more than a job search and application portal. Users can also check news and offers from Spencer Ogden – and the wider industry - as well as searching for the contact details of consultants in each sector and in each of the global offices. Because it is linked to Spencer Ogden’s live Twitter feed, news announcements and incoming roles can also be seen in real time.
Spencer-Percival concludes: “It can be hard to create a tool that bridges the gap between design and ease of use or functionality – many have tried and failed. With the Spencer Ogden app we believe that we’ve found the right balance. Applicants will find it packed full of information, can use it to fulfil their end-to-end recruitment needs and will discover it is very easy to use and navigate.”
