Bank Windhoek has launched an electronic recruitment system which will see all vacant positions at the bank being advertised on the new E-recruitment system.
However for the time being Bank Windhoek willcontinue to advertise its vacant positions in the newspapers to ensure fairness of equal access to job vacancies, especially for applicants who do not have access to the Internet.
“Once the number of applications received via the system is at a satisfactory rate, Bank Windhoek will shorten the advertisements to only stating the name of the position as well as the duty station thereof. The advertisement will direct prospective applicants to the Bank Windhoek website for more information on the position and the application process,” the bank said in a press statement.
BW says all prospective applicants will then be required to apply for vacant positions via the E-Recruitment system.
“Applicants will be kept informed on the status of their specific job application via e-mail until the final appointment has been concluded. The electronic recruitment system for internal applications was successfully launched in Bank Windhoek during September 2012. One of the advantages of the new system is that appointments will be finalised within a shorter timeframe,” the statement notes.
Commenting on the new development Elize Fahl, Executive Officer, Group Human Resources at Bank Windhoek, said “The advantage of the new system compared to the previous manual system, is that it will shorten the process of appointing suitable candidates and that it will broaden the scope of possible applicants through the creation of an in-depth database of applicants. The advantage to the applicants is that the system is an easy tool to use, as applicants only need to register their CV on the system once and thereafter maintain their CV, should there be any changes. Once the CV has been uploaded onto the system, applying for vacancies becomes a one step, easy process.”
