Wave and REC announce partnership

by in Business

Wave and REC have agreed to partner in the provision of candidate attraction services to the REC’s members.

In an exciting move, Wave will be the lead provider in a variety of recruitment technology and marketing services such as website building and design, multi-posting/job distribution, media research and analytics as well as media buying.

Wave’s CEO David Jenkins: “I’m absolutely delighted to announce this partnership, we share very similar objectives as the REC in wanting recruitment businesses to be more successful. What we offer as a business will help agencies attract more clients, better quality candidates and improve their marketing and advertising significantly. I can’t wait to get started”

REC chief executive Kevin Green says: “In a market where candidates are scarce but there are plenty of jobs going, recruiters should always be designing innovative solutions to attract candidates. Marketing is an essential part of that and can give recruitment businesses an edge over the competition. We’re delighted to partner with Wave as they have a good track record and a real understanding of the recruitment industry. We know they will provide our members with valuable advice and a great service.”

Wave’s suite of services include a website building capability, DressCode which combines modern design with strong SEO performance. It also includes WaveTrackR, their flagship multi-posting technology that provides real-time media recommendations on where to advertise and overall advertising performance.

“We wanted to build something that helped recruiters to know where they are getting ROI on their job board advertising, and more importantly, where they should be advertising depending on the position. The profile of a candidate on a job board is constantly evolving; what worked last time might not this time, so we need real up to date information on where hires and applications are coming from, WaveTrackR gives you that information. Currently, the system is only available to recruitment businesses, so we’re really flying the flag for the recruitment market – and giving our clients the edge over in-house teams and companies recruiting directly.”
