A RECRUITMENT site run by Johnston Press is introducing video profiles for potential employees.

TheSmartList.co.uk – run by the same company as The Extra – is a fixed price recruitment service for businesses and HR professionals across the country.

The website is teaming up with CVSeeMe to provide video profiles for shortlisted candidates to businesses looking to fill job roles – as well as advertising the vacancies online and screening applicants for suitability.

The bespoke videos, last 60 seconds, will showcase the candidate’s work and allow the recruiter to focus on how well matched they are to the job at hand.

Keith Chaplin-Mabbutt, founder of CVSeeMe, commented: “What attracted us specifically to TheSmartList was that, as part of Johnston Press, one of the UK and Ireland’s largest publishers, the service is abile to access over 200 newspapers, magazines and online platforms.

“The inclusive service will now see these candidates filtered by industry professionals to guarantee a response and provide the employer with an ultimate ‘Smart List’ of suitable candidates to interview, along with tailored and unique candidate video profiles to further aid the selection process”.
