The Jobs App Helping Aussie Retailers Staff Up & Save

Millennial on phone.jpeg For retailers the silly season is one of the busiest times of year – and that means more hands on deck required. Unfortunately, recruiting is a massive pain point for many business owners because it’s costly, time consuming and doesn’t always result in the right candidates being hired. Why? Because recruiting methods for frontline staff is outdated and has failed to modernise since Seek first started shifting ads from newspapers to desktop browsers twenty years ago.

Think about it, when hiring for retail sales assistants do you really need to sift through CVs, cover letters and countless emails? The answer for most retail owners or managers is no, because the information in these documents is often irrelevant, presented poorly and takes hours to sort through. The good news? There is an easier way to find staff.

New recruiting platform Found has thrown away CVs and cover letters in favour of simple and informative candidate profiles that provide employers with the information they really need to select the right employees for casual, part time or full-time roles.

Found is helping Aussie businesses save approximately 80% compared with traditional hiring platforms. Key clients using the platform include SABA, Roger David, David Jones, Nike and Platypus. 

It’s time for more Aussie retailers to think twice about their current recruiting methods. By doing so employers will hire candidates that are right for their business in a cost effective and efficient way.
