Surrey goes online to attract new recruits

An online recruitment site is being launched to help public sector
recruitment across Surrey.

Organisations taking part in the online recruitment scheme, which goes live
in March, include Surrey County Council, 11 district councils, the NHS hospital
trust and the ambulance service.

Around 1,000 jobs a year will be put on the sites.

The head of personnel at Runnymede Borough Council David Thomas said the
website will save his council around £50,000 a year for around 70 jobs.

"The website will help to improve the profile of the public sector in
Surrey and this will help to increase the diversity of staff, the quality of
candidates and retention," he said.

The site is seen as a pilot scheme by the Government.
