Bromford have been working with networx for a number of years to provide an intuitive and streamlined recruitment solution. With a small team and with anywhere between 50-70 vacancies being live at any one given time, automation and streamlined workflows are a must to ensure the talent team at Bromford can continue to grow, whilst delivering an exceptional candidate experience.
Collaborating in a long-term partnership, networx have designed Bromford a user friendly, bespoke solution fit for their needs and maximising a wide range of modules including self selection, onboarding, video interviews and Experian Right to Work integration. Due to the large volume of applications being managed by a small talent team, Bromford have optimised automated workflows to reduce administration and greatly improve internal efficiencies from candidate attraction through to sifting and interview arrangement.
With a growing team of over 1800, Bromford utilise the networx software as an extension of their internal technology suite. As the software is bespoke branded to emulate the Bromford look and feel, this has greatly aided engagement and adoption from senior leaders and hiring managers internally. With a digitally savvy, integrated recruitment process, the team at Bromford have more time to spend on delivering the human elements and supporting individual candidates to have the best possible experience, which in turn attracts and retains the very best talent.
