PizzaExpress Restaurants selects Changeworknow to deliver online recruitment and talent system

PizzaExpress, the nation’s favourite Pizza Restaurant has partnered with Changeworknow, the online recruitment specialists, to develop a recruitment solution that will support the business in its continuing mission to recruit ‘People with Passion’.

Changeworknow’s new and exciting recruitment platform will enable PizzaExpress to deliver a fantastic candidate experience, in order to attract the very best people; and recruit a workforce, with ease and efficiency, that is serious about making a difference and WOWING its customers.

Changeworknow was selected because of its strategic partnership model and unique approach to online recruitment, which builds core organisational values and motivations into the selection process.

Lesley Nash, Managing Director at Changeworknow comments “The online recruitment solution for PizzaExpress is totally aligned to the strategic direction of the business and will play an important role in their recruitment strategy, putting Pizza Express ahead of their competitors in an intensifying war for talent. The cutting edge candidate management system is built on our brand new platform which challenges the paradigms of traditional ATS’s allowing recruiters and hiring managers to engage super-efficiently with candidates and hire perfectly matched people”.

Working on the principle of ‘one size does not fit all’ the solution will be flexible enough for Restaurant Managers to recruit team members with ease and minimum effort and for Central Recruiters to manage more sophisticated campaigns and talent pools.

Louise Gallant, Recruitment Manager, explains “PizzaExpress have been working with Changeworknow for only a matter of weeks so far in which time we completed the first phase of implementation. We wanted a recruitment system that would not only manage a smooth candidate journey for us and provide state of the art functionality, but a provider who understood the people they were working with whilst providing us with the best people for the job. The online process provides a seamless and pleasurable experience not only for the user but considers the feelings of any potential candidate and guides them through the application process with ease and confidence, even if they are not quite right for the role they are applying to. The online questionnaires work effectively to select the right candidates time after time and make our life very easy”.
