London South East Colleges

How Webrecruit partnered with London South East Colleges to optimise their recruitment advertising

The Organisation


London South East Colleges (LSEC) is a successful and innovative College operating with sites across Bromley, Bexley, Orpington and Greenwich. With nearly 14,000 students and 1,000 members of staff, the College is a major employer in their area and makes a significant impact on the lives and future prospects of its learners.

The Challenge


We caught up with Jasmine Alcorn, HR Assistant at London South East Colleges, to find out more about LSEC’s journey with Webrecruit. So, first things first, how did it all start?


“LSEC were looking for recruitment advertising support to help with our more difficult to fill positions; some roles we know are easier to fill and therefore we largely advertised on our careers site and some sector specific job boards. However, we were struggling to get our more difficult to fill or time-conscious roles in front of the right candidates.


We also face competition from other education institutions (public, private and state) as well as being in the buoyant London employment market which can make competition fierce!”


Jasmine Alcorn, HR Assistant

The Solution


LSEC wanted a recruitment advertising partner who was going to be able to help advertise and support filling their vacancies, ranging from teaching to admin roles from the get-go; after speaking with the team at Webrecruit, LSEC felt they had found a supplier that would really make a difference to their recruitment and hiring process.


“What I really like about Webrecruit is they are always on hand to support and advise, and their turnaround times for getting roles advertised is speedy! I have found myself using Webrecruit’s services more and more, and they are a go-to for us for senior and/or more specialist roles also.”

The Results


Since partnering with Webrecruit, LSEC has seen increases to their candidate throughput, as well as seeing an uplift in the quality of candidates.


“We have seen an increase in candidates who also have the right experience, which makes our time screening so much easier! Having more candidates to pick from also gives our hiring managers more choice, which means they can compare candidates and make decisions based on comparison,etc.”


Since partnering with Webrecruit, London South East Colleges has achieved:


– An upswing in the volume of applications they receive for their roles
– Improvements in the calibre of suitable candidates, especially for hard to fill roles
– Reduced time to hire due to increases in quality and quantity of candidates
– Improved cost per candidate and cost per hire

Final Words


“I would definitely recommend Webrecruit to support with any organisation’s recruitment advertising and hiring; Webrecruit campaigns bring a bigger pool of candidates to vacancies, providing us with more choice as well as a higher calibre of candidate also!


Webrecruit make sure our roles are best positioned to attract the quality and quantity of candidates, and we find ourselves leaning on their services more and more.”
