COUNCIL'S ONLINE APPLICATIONS A SUCCESS

The City & County of Swansea's online employment application service is proving to be a big success since its inception four weeks ago. It is the first local authority in Wales to use this method of recruitment.

More than 150 job applications and equal opportunities monitoring forms have been filled in online so far from as far afield as the USA. For ease of use, the form does not have to be filled in all at once - it can be saved for the candidate to go back to later on.

'I'm delighted with this new development, which emphasises our commitment to our customers and is an important step in our e-government strategy,' said cabinet member, David Phillips, who has responsibility for corporate services.

The service is the result of a collaboration between the city & county's management services and ICT departments. It follows the successful introduction of the facility to download job applications, descriptions and person specifications.

The forms can be accessed from www.swansea.gov.uk and then by clicking on 'latest vacancies'. There is a 'comments' box for members of the public to make suggestions as to how the council can improve its online application service.

The City & County of Swansea also advertise their vacant posts in the Swansea Leader, the Council's free monthly newspaper, and at the Job Centre.
