How Webrecruit partnered with the Northern Irish organisation to reduce its recruitment administration.

The Company


USEL is Northern Ireland’s largest supporter of people with disabilities and health conditions into employment and operates a social enterprise business model with charitable status. They exist solely to help people with disabilities and health-related conditions move into and sustain employment.

Currently, they turnover approximately £7m and directly employ over 130 staff, based across Northern Ireland in their regional offices in Belfast, Londonderry, Portadown and Omagh.

The Challenge

USEL found recruitment administration their biggest challenge. This included, advertising, collation of applications, candidate management, shortlisting and appointing.

“We decided that we needed a more efficient solution to meet the needs of our business as the number of vacancies was increasing year on year. We wanted an easier solution that allowed candidates to apply online instead of completing a manual application form.”

The Solution

USEL recognised that introducing recruitment technology would help them to reduce their recruitment administration. Webrecruit introduced its own Applicant Tracking System, Webrecruit ATS, to USEL and explained how it could benefit the organisation.

“Webrecruit is a local company and understood what our business needed. Webrecruit ATS provided a cost-effective, affordable solution for us which includes the features we required.”

USEL noticed a drastic reduction in their recruitment administration due to more efficient internal recruitment processes and candidate management functionality, such as shortlisting and automated candidate email communications. Using Webrecruit ATS has freed up more time for USEL’s employees.

“Our employees are now able to take on extra duties due to our more efficient recruitment process; they’re able to manage their time much more effectively.”
