How Lifetime attracted and screened over 1,000 applicants to uncover the best talent
Within a challenging timescale of just three months, Lifetime supported the FOS with our best practice for online recruitment. It meant temporarily adapting their internal processes to pivot from a face-to-face, workshop-based approach to an entirely digital onboarding solution.
Lifetime’s experienced AR service worked in partnership with the FOS to onboard apprentices at speed. In two weeks, 1,000 applications were successfully generated through the campaign, followed by a unique four-day screening process to include diversity, eligibility, suitability and competency metrics.
Line Managers were engaged effectively to shift perceptions and drive the campaign's success, while each candidate was prepared for virtual assessments and interviews (resulting in 97% attendance at assessment days and interviews).
Through its partnership with Lifetime, the organisation was quickly armed with a flexible and effective digital recruitment strategy that brought fresh talent into the organisation. Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, the FOS successfully met its ambitious timeframes, recruiting and enrolling 25 high calibre
apprentices at the start of 2021.
