Providing intelligence-led innovations to improve return on investment

Shared knowledge and insight enabling HR and recruitment teams to influence hiring managers, challenge resistance and explore new ways of working to add value

CJA offers extensive experience and a proven track record partnering with public bodies across all regions of the UK, covering roles from AO through to SCS. This success is underpinned by our consultative approach and our commitment to being intelligence-led in everything we do, ensuring that together we achieve successful outcomes, cost-effectively.

As part of our commitment to being intelligence-led, we continuously invest in developing innovative reporting tools to track the performance of every advertisement we manage. The wealth of management information collected enables us to make far evidenced-based recommendations, in turn providing the tools for HR and recruitment teams to challenge previous ways of working. 

For instance, before the Competition and Markets Authority partnered with CJA, a large bulk of legal posts were advertised on a single legal recruitment medium regardless of the seniority of the post. This blanket approach continuously resulted in few applications being received. Combined with changes to copy and wider employer marketing activity, real time performance data is now provided across a broad spectrum of media titles and social media. This data provides the recruitment team with the tools they need to influence hiring managers’ decisions, resulting in increased applications, and improved cost and time per hire.

This wealth of media performance intelligence enables us to provide real insight into the performance of a breadth of online media (including social media) across a huge variety of roles. This evidence clearly enables us to recommend the most cost-effective media choices for your roles.

Our innovative approaches to data however are not limited to just the advertising stage of the recruitment process. For instance, through our career microsite and candidate assessment service (which works in conjunction with Civil Service Jobs), we are able to offer improved ways of collecting and reporting on equal opportunities monitoring data. The anonymous diversity reporting data provides HR teams the tools they need to make more informed decisions in their diversity and inclusion strategy planning.
