WR Group has created a new division, Cygnus Resourcing, to offer recruitment services within the social housing sector.
Jay Cholewinski, managing director, WR Group, said, “Our solutions were originally designed for customers in the private sector, meeting their need for effective and efficient recruitment solutions that targeted and found the best talent available. As the public sector faces ever-increasing cuts and demands to do more with less, we’re seeing them compete to recruit staff from outside the not-for-profit sector.”
Cygnus Resourcing provides a variety of recruitment tools and services based around its Fusion software. Fusion enables housing providers to manage their own recruitment process, from vacancy posting and online application forms to screening, interviewing, selection and hiring.
Kevin Barnard, HR business partner, Spectrum Housing Group, said, “Of all the applicant tracking systems we reviewed, Cygnus Resourcing’s Fusion came the closest to being able to deliver our wish list of functionality and features. We saved time and money by not having to invest in a custom solution but still have the option to personalise many aspects of the system.”
