Meet Kiri the Careers Chatbot

Meet Kiri the Careers Chatbot. Some candidates find it easy to navigate around the menus of a careers site, but others prefer a more of a personal dialogue and some interaction. This was the reason Kindred Group enlisted our help to introduce Kiri the chatbot to their careers site. Kiri helps candidates to find out more about the company, what types of career they might follow, and where in the World the openings are. Candidates can ask about how to apply for a job, when open days are taking place, and how to prepare for their interview. And when they've finished chatting with Kiri they can leave their feedback so that Kindred can measure the success of this new innovation.

Great to catch up with Claire Rees in Oxford yesterday to see how OUP are getting on with eArcu. Thanks for showing me your beautiful quadrant with a fountain at the centre, manicured lawns to lunch on, and surrounded by bicycles - very jealous!

Also wanted to take the opportunity to share the role currently advertised on the OUP Careers Site for a PM to help with the global roll-out of eArcu.

So amazing what great teamwork can deliver – 4 successful client launches in just one week

Holland & Barrett were migrated from their legacy ATS with an implementation of just 7 weeks, with the addition of our onboarding module on top. The scope covers all head office roles as well as retail recruitment for nearly 1,000 stores.

For Barnardo’s we’ve created a system with anonymous applications, shortlisting against a structured person specification by panels, and multi-faceted manager participation. Their ambition is to use the eArcu solution to drive cultural change throughout the business. They’re using a 2-stage application process to meet their needs around safeguarding children and compliance at various junctures. There are dedicated portals for at-risk candidates, other internal candidates, external candidates, and volunteers.

Hitachi Capital were thrilled that we were able to replace their legacy Taleo system in just a couple of weeks to ensure their recruitment carried on seamlessly throughout. South Western Railway are another client to have come over from a legacy ATS. They’re live and running on eArcu including offers and onboarding.

Video interviewing

Andrew and Mark from Macmillan Cancer Support share their expert insights on Video Interviewing at the launch of this new feature in eArcu. Video interviewing speeds the hiring process as your candidates get to present themselves within minutes of their application. It also allows you to assess all candidates that apply rather than just a few. You can review the interviews online at a time that suits you and include your hiring managers early on, reducing the number of applicants you need to schedule into diaries for a face-to-face meeting. The interviews are consistent and fair for all candidates and you can compare and contrast their answers as many times as you need to.
