A local recruitment agency is encouraging employers to explore the use of digital recruitment after recent reports suggest using mobile devices is the most popular way to job search.

Shrewsbury-based Red Recruitment, which has recently launched its own smartphone-friendly website (, is urging businesses to recognise the importance of mobile recruitment after studies showed more than half of jobseekers use their smartphones or tablets to apply for jobs.

Rob Griffiths, Recruitment Manager at Red Recruitment, explained: “With more than half of internet users browsing the web using smartphones and tablets, it’s inevitable that the recruitment industry is changing the way it engages with job seekers and businesses alike. Mobile recruitment isn’t just a fad, but a platform used by many recruitment agencies to offer job seekers access to the latest jobs on-the-go.”

Mobile-friendly strategies have been adopted by many businesses to accommodate the changing behaviour of their customers, however according to a study conducted by LinkedIn, the majority of employers are still not realising the importance of mobile devices when planning recruitment tactics, and as a result are missing out on quality candidates that are ditching conventional recruitment platforms such as print advertising and online job boards.

“Savvy businesses have already incorporated mobile recruitment in to their talent sourcing strategies, and as a result are leveraging a strong advantage over their competitors. Mobile recruitment is all about engaging with users quickly and effectively, and because of fast-paced lifestyles, candidates expect the information they need right at their fingertips.

“Technology is constantly changing the way businesses and the recruitment industry operate, so it’s essential those responsible for talent sourcing keep up-to-date with the latest trends to ensure they’re not missing opportunities or candidates,” Rob concluded.

Red Recruitment is a Shropshire-based consultancy specialising in the supply of permanent, contract and temporary staff across a range of sectors including PA/secretarial, finance, HR, legal and marketing. Led by a team of highly-experienced consultants, Red Recruitment ensures that it meets the precise needs of both candidates and businesses across the county.
