The workforce is the lifeblood of any organisation, and no more so than in a local authority

As councils transform – the way the workforce engages with communities and collaborates with stakeholders will be critical to face the ongoing challenges of the future. It’s essential that the way Local Authorities recruit, their future workforce transforms to.

But many Local Authority recruiters are held back by inefficient, cumbersome systems and processes.

It’s time to cut the ballast and remove the speed restrictions. To compete, Local Authority recruiters need proven talent acquisition software that powers faster, more cost-effective, more efficient recruitment.

Our candidate experience is now excellent. We have had a huge increase in applications, particularly in some roles where previously we never had people complete applications. Now we are getting more first time round.

Hire 50% faster

With comprehensive automation, a mammoth template library and workflows configured for everything your team needs to get done, Tribepad delivers efficiencies that save you time and money.

You’ll reduce your admin burden by 25% and accelerate time-to-hire by 50%. Sticking with the old way simply doesn’t make sense.

Stop chasing. Start attracting.

When hiring is this competitive, recruitment becomes a bidding war. When you can’t compete on salary, that’s a battle you’ll never win.

Instead, use Tribepad’s talent pooling, relationship management and employer branding features to create a long-term talent nurturing strategy that earns attention from better-fit people. Decreases your agency and ad spend too.
