“Before FACE-Ed we were handling paper copies and spending a lot of time on shortlisting, chasing references and going back and forth between schools within the trust setting up interviews. Vacancy requests were paper based which lead to a lengthy process, however all processes are now online and streamlined. This has led to references received within days of the initial requests with automatic reminders sent every 24 hours by the system.
Being able to apply online for internal vacancies in the Trust has made the process easier and encourages development.
As Safer Recruitment Accredited Trainers, FEPS have thought of everything. FACE-Ed provides a systematic approach, as you can not move on until a check is complete. The link to SAMpeople allows for the transfer of information straight into the employee’s profile, including all recruitment documentation.
FACE-Ed has solved a lot of problems and since its roll out we have managed to hire 46 people with relative ease. It has saved time and money. It is very methodical, easy to manage and follow, guiding staff through the process. I would absolutely recommend it without a shadow of a doubt.”
