Plymouth College of Art and Design was founded in 1856 and is one of only three independent colleges of art and design in the UK, catering for approximately 2,000 students and employing over 250 members of staff.


Plymouth College of Art sought support from networx to transform their recruitment process and gain control of the high volume of recruitment within their many departments, ensuring a consistent look, from website through to application, using their own branding.


networx provided highly intuitive and flexible software to enable them to map and deploy their desired workflow across all users, ensuring one consistent and effective process is in place. This not only improved efficiency, but aided time to hire and candidate engagement throughout the recruitment process, whilst keeping in line with the artistic branding. This ensures a seamless transition from their own website through to the networx supported job adverts.

Client Comment

“We having been using networx since February 2015, and have found the system to be user-friendly to both applicants and College users. The system has transformed our recruitment processes allowing for a better candidate experience, as well as enabling more efficient processes and communication.

Placing adverts online is easy yet thorough enabling us to capture and report on information, and our advert appearance is in line with our artistic branding, meaning seamless transition from our own website throughout the networx recruitment software.

Managers within the College have welcomed the system and have found shortlisting online extremely beneficial and efficient and the system allows us to track online where we are at with each job. The system is proving to be a real asset within in our small but busy HR team and we are excited about utilising its many benefits over the coming months to further strengthen our recruitment processes and experience.

Our Client Relations Manager, has been there from the word go and is always happy to help with any queries. We would highly recommend networx to other colleges and organisations.”
