The ‘standard’ FXRecruiter system comes bundled with the following features

recruitment-web-design-job-search1Simple keyword search or advanced filtered search. Ability for candidates to search for jobs using a number of easily customised criteria such as:

  • Division/Category/Sector
  • Location
  • Salary
  • Job title and description

Candidates can use a ‘Quick Search’ or provide more information on an Advanced Search page.

The fields on the Advanced Search form can be customised to meet your needs, and are typically mapped to the data you have in your recruitment systems.

Multiple selections can be made – even on touch screens such as iPads and tablets.

recruitment-web-design-job-search2Further search options are available, such as postcode radial search and guided search, described later in this document.

Search results are displayed as a list of job titles, clicking through to Job Details page, which can also have calls to action:

  • Save this search
  • Email me similar jobs
  • Share jobs with social networks

Landing pages can be content managed too – add text and video or imagery.

recruitment-website-candidate-registrationHaving candidate registrations provides a gold mine of candidates to advertise your services to.

We encourage candidates to register with you in a number of ways:


When applying for a job, the candidate is asked if they would like to receive emails when similar jobs are posted. This requires a password to be chosen, but otherwise a candidate profile is created which uses the information they have already given us.

Submit CV

This can be as simple as asking for an email address and a CV document. This is often sufficient for you to add them to your candidate database.

Sign up for email alerts

Candidates can sign up to be alerted by email when new jobs matching their criteria are posted.

There are many places they can do this:

  •  Calls to action advertising the email alerts feature
  •  Buttons on job search results
  •  Buttons on job details pages
  •  Tickbox on application and registration forms

If they click on any of these options, they will be asked to either login or register (if they are not already registered).


Registration can be a very simple process – apart from adding the usual details needed to apply for a job (name, email address, CV) the only additional thing they are asked for is a password – this is not compulsory but is required if they wish to sign up to email alerts. The process is deliberately very easy and provides no barrier to applying for jobs. You can choose which questions are compulsory and also ask any number of optional questions.

When candidates register, their details are stored in the FXRecruiter database and also emailed to a designated email address, with CV attached.

recruitment-web-design-candidate-saved-searchOnce registered, candidates can be automatically logged in on future visits and can be taken to their own personal home page in the Candidate Zone. This allows them to:

  • View recommended jobs
  • Add or delete email job alerts
  • Pause email job alerts
  • Change contact details
  • Update CV & profile
  • View application history

Email job alerts

Candidates will be able to set up any number of ‘saved searches’ based on location, category, salary or keywords.

These are used to display relevant jobs when they login and can also be used to send email alerts.

Users sign up for alerts and daily they are sent an email containing new jobs matching their stored search criteria.

Recommended jobs

The site will recommend jobs based on saved searches – saving the candidate time searching again.

Jobs shortlist/one click apply

recruitment-web-design-candidate-zoneThis provides a jobs basket or shortlist allowing candidates to apply for a number of jobs in one go.

When candidates are registered it literally takes 1 click for them to apply to a job. Otherwise they are encouraged to register when applying to all the jobs in their shortlist – using a very simple form (or detailed form if you require candidate filtering).

Manage profile

Candidates can manage their own profile settings, including contact details and CV. Changes are updated in the database and also emailed to you.

Application history

Each candidate can view a list of jobs they have applied for.
