Lyrath Estate Kilkenny is a stunning country house & hotel on 170 acres that boosts 139 unique bedrooms, an award winning spa, and one of the largest convention centres in Ireland. The hotel currently employs 228 staff, 85 full time staff and 143 part time & casual staff.
Pamela Murphy, HR Manager, Lyrath Estate moved from struggling to attract and retain staff to an influx of CVs, when the hotel changed ownership, but no system to manage this. Pamela was struggling with the process, candidate experience and building a talent pool. Along with these issues, management was not bought into modernising the channels used to recruit.
The free trial with BidRecruit offered Pamela an easy-to-use platform to demonstrate the advantages of using new recruitment channels to improve candidate quality & volume along with a reduced cost-to-hire. Using BidRecruit, Pamela could also instantly communicate with multiple candidates, easily collaborate with hiring managers and create a database of CVs for future positions.
Reduction of recruitment costs has been the biggest benefit seen by the hotel since taking on the platform. Utilising the reporting feature allowed Pamela to review the more expensive job boards and assess which boards were no longer worthwhile investments, reducing the use of premium jobs boards from 4 to 2. This reduction in cost has allowed Pamela and the hotel focus on other elements of HR like training and upskilling.
