March 2014 release notes: Marketplace Employers

We are delighted to announce that our latest Marketplace has gone live. There are many new features and innovations to help you find the best candidates quickly and efficiently. In addition to this we have simplified the platform experience so that it is more logical and intuitive.

A summary of the changes can be found below, but feel free to contact us directly if you would like one of our team to organise a more detailed run through of the Marketplace.

Candidates moving through the process

We have changed the way employers can navigate around the Marketplace to better reflect the process of hiring. There is a new candidates section, which now tracks against each stage of the search process from shortlisting through to placement.
Candidate process

Marketplace Shortlisting

Employers can now shortlist candidates from the search results you generate in the Marketplace. When employers create a new vacancy, they can navigate directly to find matching candidates and choose to shortlist them without having to contact a recruiter.

Easier Navigation & Communications

It is easy to access the candidate requests list and to view and manage how recruiters are responding. We have added a messaging feature to track and encourage timely communications with recruiters.

Create Jobs Quicker

We have simplified how employers create jobs by reducing data entry requirements and showing you matching candidates straight away.


As always, we are keen to get your feedback. If you have any ideas on how we can improve the Marketplace, feel free to click the ‘support’ tab and let us know your thoughts.
To ensure the best possible user experience we have removed support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 8. Microsoft has long since dropped support for this product and while things will generally work fine, we will not be testing with this very dated browser moving forwards.

If you have not updated your browser or are unsure what version you’re using, please navigate to the link below:
Check your Internet Explorer Version.

See you soon in the next release!
