Mitchell and Butlers Implements New Recruitment Technology for all Pubs

Mitchell and Butlers, the leading operator of restaurants and pubs in the UK has extended its online recruitment capability to include all jobs in restaurants and pubs. Three years ago an online recruitment system was launched for management roles. The highly successful approach has now been extended within the business so that all pubs and restaurants can now advertise their vacancies to the internal and external population.

Working with online recruitment specialists Changeworknow, a highly innovative process has been designed to be used by over 1600 restaurant and pub managers. Lisa Proctor, Sales and Marketing Director at Changeworknow comments “The extension of the online strategy to include the highest volume recruitment at Mitchells and Butlers puts technology at the heart of the recruitment strategy. By using the manager portal designed specifically for busy operational managers in distributed sites the business will be able to recruit quality people quickly. A key consideration is to provide a great service to all candidates which is in line with the great service that Mitchells and Butlers strives hard to offer to its customers”.

The new process also means that employees can apply for vacancies as the system links to the internal employee communication and engagement portal. Employees will now be able to look for career opportunities across all brands within the group which includes well known high street brands such as Browns, O’Neills and All Bar One.

Award Time Again

It doesn't seem that long ago that we were attending an HR award dinner in London picking up the Personnel Today Award for Excellence in HR through Technology. In fact that was four months ago and tonight the CNL team will be attending the ONREC awards dinner as finalist.

We have been shortlisted as a finalist in the Technical Innovation category. We normally enter with a client but this award recognises the incredible effort of our internal team to produce the most innovative online recruitment system on the market in the UK. The technology is state of the art, the functionality is rich and highly flexible and the look and feel of the whole system is modern and extremely appealing to users.

How do we know this? Well our clients have told us and so have companies who see it for the first time. It is normal practice for companies to see a few "suppliers" when selecting a recruitment system and without exception we get the feedback that ours is the most up to date, appealing, feature rich and modern. All very good news for us as we continue to add big brands to our client list.

So tonight is a very big "thank you" to the team for all your hard work and dedication. The champagne will be well deserved and whether we win or not we will come away in the knowledge that we do have THE best solution on the market. Just ask any of our clients!
