Challenges

The UK’s nuclear industry is facing its biggest challenge in decades. Existing power stations are near the end of their working lives and are ready to be decommissioned, while a new wave of plants has been given the go-ahead. Nuclear is back on the agenda. The factors behind this resurgence are complex, but one thing is clear – the need for suitably skilled graduates from the UK is greater than ever. Engineers, scientists, business minds, talented managers and financial experts will all be essential to the future of this sector. That’s why leading businesses and organisations have come together to create a new graduate training programme; nucleargraduates.

They required a solution that would help them deal with high volumes of applications all the way – from recruitment and employment, through to supporting employment in sponsoring organisations after two years.

Solution

Oleeo deployed its volume solution to help the small nucleargraduates recruitment team of two handle thousands of applications for limited graduate places. The system, with technology from Oleeo’s partners integrated within, affords the organisation more consistency in the recruitment process and better candidate selection, outweighing the original cost saving
benefits.

Oleeo helps recruiters in high-volume environments – such as retail, hospitality, healthcare, travel and logistics – to manage the entire recruitment process and significantly reduce their time to hire without jeopardising quality. It allows an organisation to post one vacancy instead of 50 for a single post using bulk processing.

Results

Oleeo’s decades of experience in campus & early careers hiring means our solution helps recruiters with finding, nurturing and hiring the best new talent across the entire journey of an applicant from attraction and engagement to on-boarding. The system, with technology from Oleeo partners integrated within it, affords the organisation more consistency in the recruitment process and better candidate selection, outweighing the original cost-saving benefits.

With Oleeo’s intelligent recruitment technology nucleargraduates reduced their administrative costs by 80%. Around 90% of graduates completed the programme and stayed working within the UK nuclear industry management. They were consistently voted as one of the UK’s best graduate programmes via Guardian UK300 and TheJobCrowd and overall they saw an increase in the number of sponsors and graduates in the program. The key benefit of partnering with Oleeo was an ROI of £78.8m! Which is equivalent to £4 for every £1 spent.
