The ORMC exists to further the interests of those working in Online Recruitment and related activities. It is the first organisation to unite generalist and specialist jobsites with a range of suppliers to the online recruitment industry including providers of careers advice, software, psychometric testing, candidate management and multiple posting systems.
With more than 88% of jobseekers using Online to conduct research into the job market, the online recruitment industry continues to grow. It is predicted that by 2015 mobile will have overtaken desktop as the primary means of job applications.
The rationale for consumers to go online to find their next job is overwhelming: The vast majority of homes have access to broadband, people change jobs frequently, will work for more years and are open to work opportunities outside their current occupation or location. We see this emergent demand driving our industry forward over the next five years.
Our goals are to raise awareness of how using the internet and social media can add-value to the employment process for employers and candidates in terms of speed, choice and cost-effectiveness and to develop a focal point for anyone interested in finding out more about online and mobile recruitment.
Additionally, we exist to provide a platform for dialogue with Government over issues of concern to members, such as Data Protection and recruitment related legislation and to assist in policy making by providing data and information which they struggle to find elsewhere. To this end we are building up a relationship with key departments, notably BIS, who continue to express keenness in working specifically with ORMC.
