Disciplines and Roles

What are Disciplines and Roles?

A Discipline is a way to categorise the different roles that you will recruit for as a recruitment organisation.

Your Disciplines and Roles help you categorise Candidates effectively and help you with searching for Candidates, provide a strong number of results within your Job Potential Matches, reach more candidates via Job Alerts and have the ability to set up dynamic talent pools.

Examples of Disciplines are things such as Education, IT, Accountancy & Finance and HR.

The roles are the generic Job Titles where you can gather all candidates within this area

You can also use other search criteria within Firefish to help narrow your search results down further

A good example could be:

If you are unsure on how to structure these, take a look at Job Boards and the dropdown lists used to search on Job Boards to help you structure how these should be laid out

Locations

What is a Location?

A Location is a way to categorise the different Locations that you will recruit for as a recruitment organisation.

Your Locations should be set to areas that you recruit within and not a wide list of locations across the UK as you do not want to list Locations that you are not recruiting within.

Similar to Disciplines, you don’t want to create your Locations too narrow as this will narrow your search results and will become too granular and prevent you from getting the reach when searching for Candidates.

A good example of Locations would be as follows:

This will allow you to group Candidates within the different regions and if required, you can add sub locations within each area if you are recruiting for Candidates within certain sub-locations within the Location Area itself.

If you are unsure on how to structure these, take a look at Job Boards and the dropdown lists used to search on Job Boards to help you structure how these should be laid out

Specialisations

What is a Specialisation?

A Specialisation is the Industry/Sector that the Candidate Specialises in.

A Speciality can be identified as the Sector of the Economy that they work within.

Within Specialisations, this is used to Identify what a Candidate Specialises within.

Examples of Specialisations would look like this:

If you are unsure on how to structure these, take a look at Job Boards and the dropdown lists used to search on Job Boards to help you structure how these should be laid out
