Southwark Council selects Lumesse to power up their Mobile Career Site

London (UK), 29th April 2014 – The London Borough of Southwark chose Lumesse, a global leader in talent acquisition and talent management solutions, to enable their mobile enabled career site.

Mobility has caused a fundamental shift in people’s habits, particularly when it comes to job seeking. In fact, LinkedIn found that more than 70 % of job seekers rely on their mobile device to find job information. US-based job board CareerBuilder reported that 1 in 5 job applications come through mobile for employers with mobile career sites.

After the homepage, the job and career section is already the most visited area of Southwark Council’s website. So, the recruitment team were absolutely committed to further improving the job-hunter experience and making it easier for potential applicants to apply. The choice to go mobile was therefore a logical one.

Southwark council commented, “In a fiercely competitive environment attracting and engaging talent through all available channels is key for us. So embracing the latest recruiting innovations like this helps us do exactly that.”

Lumesse Mobile Career Site helps Southwark Council effectively address the large portion of their career traffic coming from mobile devices. It provides job information to their communities anytime and in the way people want to receive it on their device of choice.

The seamless integration with their Lumesse Recruiting platform TalentLink means Southwark Council can post jobs easily and efficiently directly to the mobile career site, reducing work for the recruiter. It also gives candidates much more flexibility as they can email themselves their job application and then complete it on their desktop afterwards.

“Job seekers nowadays are starting to expect intuitive, mobile optimised job searches and application processes, so losing 20% of visitors on career sites isn’t acceptable anymore while organisations are racing to attract the talent they need,” said Nick Holmes, Managing Director UK at Lumesse. “When it comes to finding and engaging top talent for any organisation, mobile recruitment can no longer be ignored.”
