Recruitment Case Study

After an unsuccessful ‘Post & Pray’, JVP Group saves the day!

Civil engineering consultancy experience job advertising with a difference and hire Site Supervisor.


The Scenario

Aleon is a civil engineering consultancy based in East Riding of Yorkshire, providing project management and support services to local authorities and private organisations.

With new projects on the horizon, the company started the search for an experienced Highways Site Supervisor.

Initially, Aleon decided to use the services of a multiple job board posting service which promised “cost effective vacancy advertising” – but what actually resulted was:

X The advert taking a week to be published across the job boards
X Technical issues with applications not being received from some job boards, and no resolution of the issue
X Poor quality applications, and no hire made 

So, it was back to square one for Aleon. Thankfully through an internet search they came across JVP Group. 




The Solution

From the first conversation, it was clear to Aleon that the comprehensive solution provided by JVP Group is so much more than your typical 'post & pray' job advertising service, and that the specialist recruitment marketing team at JVP team go the extra mile to ensure the vacancy is marketed in the best way possible to reach and attract the right people, whilst removing the hassle and the high costs from the recruitment process.

The Results


Quality applications
With 38 high quality applications to choose from, the only headache that came with this recruitment campaign was whittling down the best applicants (although the Applicant Tracking System provided by JVP Group made managing the process quick and easy!).



Speedy hire
Within the space of 2½ weeks, Aleon had a job offer accepted by a candidate ideal for the Highways Site Supervisor role.




Talent pool for future roles
Aleon have ongoing access to their talent pool of high calibre professionals on the ATS, and they can make as many hires as they need at no extra cost! Ideal with the possibility of additional recruits needed in the near future.


“After my experience of using two other different online job advertising providers in the past, I can safely say that JVP bring so much more to the table.

There was a stark difference in the quality of applications that came through from the campaign with JVP, and I’d put this down to the fact they treated our recruitment campaign like a targeted marketing campaign, and the results speak for themselves.”
