PMP Recruitment, part of Cordant Group, has developed and launched a web application that allows candidates to register with the company from home. Cordant Connect will also dramatically cut the time it takes for candidates to go through the on-boarding process within the PMP operation by up to 90%.
Up until now, job seekers wishing to register with the agency have visited one of PMP’s 20 branches across the UK. Designed to increase convenience and accessibility, Cordant Connect speeds up the registration process for candidates seeking work placements, whilst also allowing PMP’s in-branch teams more time to focus on the candidate experience and match job seekers with most suitable employment opportunities, especially in the lead-up to the busy peak season.
The web application – which is optimised for smartphones and tablets – also gives candidates the option to automatically upload photographic proof of the necessary ID documentation online, rather than photocopying their passports or driving licences in branch. Following the online registration process, candidates will only require a short face-to-face appointment with PMP staff to verify information ahead of any work placement.
Designed by a team of in-house developers, Cordant Connect has been initially rolled out for PMP, ahead of a more extensive implementation across Cordant Group at a later date. Moving forward, the development team will also increase the functionality of web application to include live-time and attendance reports, scheduling of rosters and dynamic work availability management.
Jamie Reynolds, managing director of PMP Recruitment, said, “It is our intention to make the registration process as easy and simple as possible, offering job seekers increased flexibility. Cordant Connect is a fantastic online tool that will significantly boost candidate engagement, whilst driving increased efficiency across our business. We have worked in close collaboration with a number of colleague forums within our sectors, taking on-board their vital feedback to shape and finalise a tool that will make a substantial difference to our business on a day-to-day basis.”
