Pathways : Recruitment

This subscription-based service gives you the online tools that will help you reach a wider, more diverse audience. As well as increasing your exposure to the jobs market through a national faith sector jobs board, Pathways Recruitment will help you save time and money. With this you also get access to our expert advisors who may guide you in recruitment strategies, sourcing activities and other bespoke requirements.

Keeping track of your applicants has never been easier thanks to our online application tool. Once your advert has closed you can share applications with your shortlisting panel electronically. You also have access to a reporting tool that shows where your candidates are coming from, how long it is taking to fill your roles and other key metrics. All of which will help you to make informed decisions when it comes to placing future adverts.

“I’m looking forward to having a source of advertising and publicising the jobs within the Church of England that will enable to us attract the best people, who will help us to deliver, serve, and support the great working taking place in our parishes, and communities.  It will be of great benefit to have a modern and efficient way of enabling people to apply for posts, and to make the recruitment and selection process simple and effective” David Loft, HR Director, Southwark Diocese

“Clergy recruitment will benefit from the majority of posts being advertised in one place, making it easier for clergy exploring new roles to find us! We are expecting to see a reduction in our advertising costs and a reduction in administration” Dr. Jan Smart, HR Director, Birmingham Diocese.
