Health & Social Care Applicant Tracking System

Recruitment in the Health & Social Care sector can be extremely challenging. As a sector identified as acutely affected by candidate scarcity and levels of hiring expected to increase by up to 70% in 2021, finding sufficient, suitably qualified people for your vacancies can be a struggle. 

Eploy's ATS (Applicant Tracking System) and Talent CRM is designed for companies to take control of their hiring processes, working with hiring mangers to collectively make great hires.

What channels do health & social care recruiters use for sourcing candidates?

59% of in-house recruitment teams within Health & Social care are using their ATS/CRM to address the sector sourcing challenges, which if utilised effectively could help to build and uncover much needed talent pools

Which sourcing channels work best in health & social care?

When we look at how Health & Social Care recruiters are succeeding with talent attraction the Sourcing Quadrant paints a clear picture, with improved results on last year across all channels.This could be related to the much improved perception of the industry, probably attributed to the heroic work of people in the sector to navigate us through the pandemic. Poor perception of this industry has been a key candidate attraction challenge in previous years, yet this year has reduced by almost half!

Even Social Media is having some impact on candidate sourcing as many other industries see a poor return from this as a channel.
