The Witherslack Group is a UK based company providing inspirational education and care to children and young people. With 2000 employees, Witherslack focuses on Specialist Educational Needs (SEN) – supporting the most vulnerable children with complex needs, creating better outcomes for their futures.
Their main hiring challenges are Head Teachers, Registered Managers, Clinical Roles (such as Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists), plus Teachers and Teaching Assistants, and Residential Support Workers. A key challenge is the high volume and high attrition for Residential Support Workers which takes up most of the recruitment team’s time. This is coupled with an insufficient supply of talent across the UK care sector.
As an employer, they have USPs of premium positioning in the market, better pay, and a strong company culture. The company is growing quickly as a result of strong market demand. They have been working hard to develop new employer brand content and are now ready to take this to the market.
Historically, their recruitment has been a traditional and reactive model with a heavy reliance on agencies which is expensive.
They are now working with Candidate.ID on lead generation activity for their in-demand talent roles. By building strong talent pipelines, the aim is to reduce empty chair time and therefore costs to the business, as well as reducing the wider impact on the team and children.
So how will we achieve this?
The team at Candidate.ID are already working closely with Witherslack at building out their database for 4 priority role types. We will then work together to create best in class engagement and conversion campaigns tailored specifically for each of their pipelines. By using the Candidate.ID platform to capture the details of interested candidates via a landing page, then using automation to nurture means that when positions go live, they will be able to get immediate applications. It’s the simplest and most effective way that customers use Candidate.ID.
