The Bentley Motors recruitment team will now be able to communicate effectively across different time zones, while line managers will be able to track the progress of their vacancies 24/7.
Christine Gaskell, Bentley board member for personnel, said: "Our new e-recruitment system will enhance our ability to attract high-level people from around the world. In a global business such as ours, being able to offer an online application system is essential.
“It will also enable Bentley managers to track applications securely and monitor the progress of vacancies. This will bring benefits to our overall recruitment process and will enable us to align our recruitment process with leadership elsewhere in Bentley.”
The new system will enable candidates to manage their application on-line by viewing the status of their application securely and booking themselves onto assessment centres or interviews.
Trish Butterill, dealer support co-ordinator in aftersales, said: "In today’s world of technology, where everybody uses email for job searching, it is essential to be on-line.
"If you know that you are fluent in a language, for instance, then you will look for companies that have an association with a specific country. You can also get a lot of company information on-line and understand all its functional areas, its mission statement and other relevant company data. It is a big step forward to be on-line."
