One of UK’s most prestigious media companies required a holistic solution for managing various aspects of their high traffic jobsite visited by millions of users each month.
The requirements were:
Process job listings which they receive in various formats:
Scrape jobs from various websites and post them on to the client’s platform. This was a two step process with automatic remapping of some data fields along with a manual quality check to ensure everything was in compliance with the client’s site. The scraped listings also needed to be synchronized on both sites. Any changes to the listings on the scraped site were to be reflected on the client’s site. New jobs were to be added, expired jobs removed and modified jobs updated.
Process job feeds via API and post them on to the client’s site. Similar to jobs scraping (point 2), the client’s site needed to be synchronized with the listings in the feeds i.e. new jobs added, changes updated and deletions removed from the site.
Optimise listings – on a daily basis all new listings were to be reviewed and optimised to improve response rate. This required careful evaluation of the job copy and ensuring all possible relevant industries and job roles were assigned, the contact details removed from the copy and placed in the appropriate fields, ensuring the “how to apply” external links were working and landing on the correct page, the job location correct, listing properly formatted, and other data fields appropriately populated.
Send targeted email alerts using the candidates database. This involved building data queries to target qualified candidates for any particular job. This required reading the job description and creating an appropriate data query to pull the most relevant candidates for that role. This was a build, test, and fine tune process. The data queries could not be too broad to include irrelevant candidates yet not too narrow to pull just a handful.
There were two main aspects of the project i.e. human resources for production and technical expertise to manage the IT areas of the project. Software applications and tools were to be developed to manage the workflow, communicate with the jobsites’ APIs, scrape data from the affiliated job boards, accept and process feeds, post data to the client’s site etc.
