University of Bristol launches online platform to recruit the best global academics


The University of Bristol is poised to launch a global online recruitment platform to increase the efficiency of its recruitment system and contend for talent in an increasingly competitive academic environment.

The university is working with Lumesse, a provider of talent management solutions, to put in place a syatem to source the right academic professionals and staff, not only in the UK, but on an International scale, helping it to maintain its global reputation and position within the top 30 of the QS World University Ranking.

The app-based technology will provide the University with a career portal that will enable internal and external candidates to track their application status, helping to significantly reduce the administrative burden for HR staff and costs associated with talent acquisition and management in the long term. Lumesse will also help the University of Bristol to identify the best channels, both social and traditional, through which to recruit top quality talent.

Eddie Procter, resourcing manager in HR at University of Bristol, said: "The implementation is part of our employee and candidate strategy to ensure we stay ahead of the curve for talent acquisition in a highly competitive market. However, recruitment is only part of our people strategy. We want to be able to ensure we have a fully-joined up resourcing process that helps our employees throughout their career paths. Our aim is to increase people motivation and improve succession planning within the University."
