The Medical Research Council (MRC), the main public funder of medical research in the UK, has chosen WCN to provide its e-Recruitment services.
WCN, the leading UK and Global e-Recruitment software supplier, is author of the Government’s Guide to Best Practice e-Recruitment. Its clients already include HM Revenue & Customs, DWP, Hampshire County Council, Welsh Assembly Government, plus many Universities, Police Forces and Fire & Rescue Services.
MRC was not only attracted by WCN’s considerable public sector experience, but the system’s ability to manage the whole recruitment process; including pre and post recruitment activities such as approval to on-boarding, talent banking, vacancy authorisation processes, anonymous candidate lists protecting against unconscious bias and reporting. All will allow MRC to give more ownership to the recruitment managers, increase recruitment efficiency and improve overall candidate experience
The innovative solution, WCNPublic , will be used across MRC’s research units and institutes. Mark Houlihan, Business Development Manager of WCN says: “We are so pleased to welcome MRC as a client. It’s a great endorsement for both our system and our team to have yet another prestigious public sector organisation working with us.”
