Business Background

Research Councils UK (RCUK) is a strategic partnership of the UK Research Councils, established in 2002 to enable the 7 UK Research Councils to work together and enhance the overall impact and effectiveness of their research. One of their remits relates to recruitment and managing the online process.

Project Synopsis - Activedition & Oracle i-Recruitment

Following competitive tender RCUK commissioned C2 to create a front-end website to aid candidate attraction and simplify the job application process to support recruitment for the UK Research Councils.

The solution consisted of using the Activedition CMS to establish their online recruitment portal integrating with their back office Oracle i–Recruitment system. The requirement consisted of designing and delivering a highly usable online presence with effective search and faceted search features to assist review of vacancies by candidates.

In terms of architecting a job search solution C2 leveraged off of the structured content management capability of the Activedition CMS which provides an out-of-the-box starter-kit for systems integration. Web services were then designed to map online entities with back office recruitment records that are pulled into the online portal in a scheduled or real-time manner. The structured content management approach provides consistency of presentation, enables content classification, allowing multiple faceted searches to be quickly applied, whilst also allowing directories and pagination to be rapidly delivered.
