Online recruitment defended by expert


Online recruitment defended by expert
The process of recruiting new employees using online services has been defended by an industry expert, reports.

Enhance Media, the company responsible for the management of the National Online Recruitment Audience Survey (NORAS) - has countered recent criticism of the process following problems faced in the appointment of junior doctors to specialist posts.

Managing director of the firm, Tim Elkington, argues that online recruitment is a cost-effective and time-saving way to find new staff - and that any errors can generally be attributed to the system, not the people using it.

Mr Elkington commented: "We understand how the junior doctors feel and it's right that the Modernising Medical Careers (MMC) procedure is now being reviewed.

"But it's important to remember that if a system doesn't work it's because it hasn't been set up properly or it's a poor system - not because the principle of online recruitment is flawed.

"Many private and public sector organisations are successfully using online recruitment to save on admin time and drive down costs."
