TSL Education's market leading online recruitment service, HireWire, has been awarded Product Development of the Year at the Digital Publishing Awards 2010 held in Brighton on Friday. Honoured for its innovation and achievement in digital information services the judges were impressed with its ability to save schools time and resources as well as being completely free to use.
Bill Donoghue, Managing Director of TSL Education, said: "we are incredibly proud to receive this award for product innovation. This industry recognition is a huge endorsement of our investment in the sector and our commitment to education in the UK".
HireWire's win tops off what has been an extraordinary 18 months for the service. Not only has it been a runaway hit with over 4,000 schools signed up and over 100,000 job seekers using it to apply for their next position, but it has also been named the number 1 applicant tracking service for universities.
TSL has worked closely with schools, local authorities, universities and colleges to design and build a product which exclusively addresses the needs of the sector and its recruitment processes. HireWire is a sophisticated, feature-rich, web-based Applicant Tracking System, which streamlines the entire recruitment process. It is completely free, including the training and ongoing support, and can be implemented in a matter of hours, saving education institutions time, money and valuable resources.
TES Connect, the leading UK website for teachers and educational professionals, was also Highly Commended in the Digital Service of the Year category. The judges commented that it "has experienced exponential digital growth becoming the world's number one professional network for teachers and the UK's biggest professional online service... a leading example of a business-to-business publisher evolving into a fully functioning industry vertical."
