Matrix is thrilled to announce the successful implementation of its Talent Pool solution in partnership with Essex County Council (ECC). This innovative technology will enhance ECC’s ability to leverage its strong employer brand to identify, attract, and engage external talent.

By seamlessly integrating state-of-the-art features, the technology will help ECC to modernise its recruitment processes and providing prospective applicants direct access to a diverse range of opportunities offered by one of Essex’s largest employers

For ECC, the decision to embrace the Talent Pool as a transformative recruitment solution was underscored by a steadfast commitment to fostering a dynamic and diverse talent pool. ECC procured Matrix to drive a more efficient and personalised recruitment process. The Talent Pool aligns with ECC’s goals of optimising its recruitment team’s efforts,  minimising recruitment costs whilst extending and strengthening reach into local community resources.

Central to ECC’s mission was to cultivate a personalised approach that retained candidates while reducing recruitment expenses. As the primary gateway for external recruitment, the Talent Pool positions itself as an attractive and engaging platform that encourages talented individuals to be a part of ECC’s future growth.

Drawing on insights from previous implementation experiences, Matrix approached the project with a meticulous strategy, aligning Matrix’s expertise with ECC’s distinct specifications and user requirements. This tailored approach ensured the implementation resonated with ECC’s objectives and provided an interface that ECC’s team and potential candidates could easily embrace

The integration of the Talent Pool was facilitated through a collaborative effort. The partnership ensured that ECC’s transition into the new system was smooth, intuitive, and aligned with the organisation’s vision. Matrix and Alvius’ solution, known for its user-friendly design, proactive responsiveness, and community- building capabilities, instantly resonated with ECC’s team and stakeholders.

The Talent Pool’s official launch on July 31st marked a significant milestone in ECC’s recruitment journey. The rapid accumulation of talent within the first two weeks exemplifies the eagerness of external talent to become part of ECC’s transformation.

Matrix is excited about ECC’s forward trajectory and is dedicated to supporting candidates as they navigate their journey toward securing roles within the organisation.

“This has been the least stressful go live of anything we have ever done. You guys have been awesome to work with”
