Online for jobs - and award
21 March 2008
An online recruitment campaign by First ScotRail which attracted more than 80,000 job applications in a matter of months has been honoured.
The initiative saw Change Solutions, on behalf of First ScotRail, win Best Recruitment Campaign at the prestigious Scottish Recruitment Awards 2008.
The awards pay tribute to outstanding achievements of recruitment companies from across Scotland.
It was the first time First ScotRail had used the internet for recruiting.
Judges said the new portal offering online applications and candidate management had “proved to be a huge success.” One added that the response was “a very impressive result which will change the way First ScotRail recruits for the long term."
Fiona Irvine, First ScotRail’s HR director, said: “We are delighted to have received this recognition for our online website. It has been very successful in attracting quality candidates to the large range of exciting roles that we have to offer at First ScotRail.”
