Niche jobs boards ensure medical organisations find the right candidates

  • Jobs4Medical reveals 'Top Five' Benefits of specialist jobs boards to recruit professionals in niche areas
Hampshire, UK – 29, June, 2009 –, a leading specialist online recruitment service for the medical profession, has identified the Top Five reasons why companies should opt for niche jobs boards to locate candidates. One of the key benefits highlighted is how they offer a targeted form of recruitment, providing the best pool of candidates for specialised and professional vacancies. They are also cost-effective and budgetable – a priority for many organisations in the current climate.

With UK unemployment reaching highs of 2.2 million in Q1, according to the BBC, some employers are finding themselves inundated with unsuitable responses for positions they are looking to fill. The Medical industry in particular, including nursing and pharmaceutical sectors, requires highly qualified individuals. Posting a job on a site dedicated to medical vacancies will only target the ideal audience – as it will be the first point of call for many healthcare professionals.     

Jobs4Medical has a high success rate in providing skilled candidates for very specialised roles. Vicky Scott, Operations Manager, explained: "Niche jobs boards have gone from strength to strength in recent years as they enable recruiters to extract a handful of candidates from hundreds of applications who have the optimum qualifications and skills for that position. While some employers want to reach as many people as possible to find a good candidate, professional and specialised industries, like healthcare, only want the right candidate. Niche jobs boards make this possible as it creates a more specific search – which benefits both the candidate and recruiter.

"We also ensure users of our site benefit from maximum security because our database is not searchable. This significantly reduces the threat of data being stolen – a problem that has hit the headlines in recent months – and makes candidates feel more secure about uploading their personal details," continued Vicky Scott.

Jobs4Medical splits its jobs board down into nine sectors – including dental, care home and nursing – to further streamline the process and ensure employers only receive qualified, relevant applicants.

2) Targeted – Whether it's for medical, mining or insurance, only industry professionals will search on specialist jobs boards relevant to their sector. Jobs4Medical's jobs board is split down into nine categories within the healthcare sector. This means that a pool of professionals will be viewing vacancies that they are qualified to fill. Jobs4Medical also uses sophisticated technology that matches skill sets to job vacancies – so those with unsuitable backgrounds are immediately removed.

3) Security – Online recruitment services that give access to recruiters to search for candidates provide additional access points to the data they hold. Jobs4Medical does not to allow data to be searchable by outside organisations, which means that the candidate is in complete control of who receives their CV, and the overall database only has access via internal sources.

4) Online Branding – Companies who advertise their jobs online are also advertising themselves. Vacancies can get picked up on Google, which raises brand awareness and acts as an advertising campaign, without the additional cost.
