Allied Carpets is rolling out an online recruitment system to its 220 UK
stores, in a bid to attract more candidates.
The firm usually recruits between 15 and 20 new staff every month. The
appointments range from warehouse workers to senior management.
It needs to attract applicants at every level, and said it must ensure each
vacancy is placed on the most appropriate website.
HR manager Philip Ryan-Culver said the firm hoped to get more quality
candidates at a range of levels, and felt online recruitment was the best way
"We recognised online recruitment was the key to attracting candidates
at all levels and wanted to improve what we were already doing," he said.
Allied Carpets will use HR Portal to research suitable job websites and
monitor the quality of the initiative.
