Recruitment Service - Advertising and pre-employment checks.

The service can advise on the best place to advertise your vacancy to maximise response. It can secure advertising on websites and in publications at a discounted rate, as well as placing adverts on the County Council’s website. The service has moved to an online system for processing electronic Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks, which means disclosures are received on average within 5 days. The service offers an online applicant tracking system (eRecruitment solution), providing a streamlined, managed recruitment service, configurable to individual requirements.
