"The recruitment has gone very well; we are delighted with the quantity and quality of the response."
Harvey Young, National Consortium of Colleges
Anna Stockdale, Human Resources Manager, Rotherham College of Arts and Technology"We were pleased to note that we sent out 23 applications and received 18 back. From this we were able to short list 8 good applicants for interview. From our point of view this was a good response rate. When we have advertised these posts previously we have sent out roughly 10 applications and received only a few back. The last time this happened we were unable to invite anyone for interview. We have been very happy with the coverage rate your website has given the College."
"This is the first time South Tyneside College has used this medium to attract and recruit Skills for Life practitioners. We have received an excellent response, with a significant increase in the number of 'returned forms'. We have two vacancies arising in the coming months, and I do intend to advertise them via Skills for Life Network."
Arlene Willetts, Head of Essential Skills and ESOL, South Tyneside College
"By far this is the best recruitment campaign we've had for this post (our third attempt). Thanks for all your help."
Mina Soussi, Human Resources Manager, The Learning Trust, Hackney
"It seems as though, to paraphrase the proverbial TV lager commercial from some years back, that this website reaches the parts other adverts cannot reach!"
Dave Shaw, Head of Recruitment, Durham Education in the Community
"The response to our advert was fantastic, thanks!"
Dominic Smith, Business Analyst, Tribal
"Just to let you know that as a result of the advertisement I now have a register of 26 qualified and experienced people. This is fabulous for us as we can now call on people for sessional work."
Sheila Davidson, Bridge Project Manager, Sunderland City Council
"We filled the vacancy very quickly. We are very satisfied with the service offered by Skills for Life Network, and we will definitely be using the Network again for our recruitment."
Clinton Griffiths, Director, Millennium Renaissance Consultants
"The recruitment went really well. I have filled the positions for both vacancies, and both successful candidates came via the advert on the Skills for Life Network website, so thank you very much."
Gez Morrall, Training Officer, Age UK
"WAMITAB is an Awarding Body for the waste management industry and has developed an innovative approach to delivering Skills for Life in the workplace. To resource this new initiative we placed an advertisement for a Skills for Life tutor on the Skills forLife Network website. This was the first time we had used this web site for recruitment and we were very pleased at both the number and calibre of the responses - our new tutor starts soon. We have found this a very cost-effective recruitment tool and would not hesitate to use it again if similar circumstances arise."
Dr L W Strong, Director General, WAMITAB, Northampton
