From becoming the first public sector specific job board over 20 years ago, to the multi-channelled hiring service provider we are now, JGP have continued to evolve to combat the challenges our clients face.
Hiring within the public sector, you’ll be faced with greater skill shortages than those making similar hires within private businesses. That’s why it’s our mission to provide creative and data-driven solutions that optimise the recruitment process for both hiring managers and candidates working within the public sector. Our unique approach to talent acquisition is designed to give organisations a competitive edge within this challenging market.
Our story began back in 1999 when we launched jobsgopublic, the first job board dedicated solely to the public sector. Over the next two years, we created our first online job application form – again, a first for the public sector – and were chosen by the Local Government Association to run LGJobs, a dedicated job board for local government.
By 2005, we had built our first regional job portal, SurreyJobs, and rolled out our first recruitment management system – the forerunner to today’s applicant tracking system.
Fast-forward to 2011 and we launched our candidate sourcing service, Smartsearch (rebranded in 2020 as Tri-Source).
In 2015, we integrated our ATS with jobsgopublic, then in the following year we launched our pay-per-click (PPC) recruitment marketing service and won Recruitment Campaign of the Year at the PPMA Awards.
We enhanced our PPC capability with the introduction in 2018 of our programmatic advertising service.
Then we launched our recruiting analytics service in 2019, allowing us to benchmark performance data and devise the most effective recruitment campaigns. In 2019 we also won the PPMA Award for Best Social Media Recruitment Campaign in recognition of our work with Southwark Council.
Everything we do is based on ongoing data-driven decision making, which allows us to understand and adapt our service to meet the current needs of the public sector recruitment climate.
