"We chose The Cohorts because they quickly understood the brief and were able to come up with an elegant solution to our needs. We wanted an innovative solution to a problem that hadn't really been addressed. Service was and still is excellent. We got a comprehensive software solution tailored to our specific needs and we have worked closely with them over the last 12 months to refine and further develop our product." Rob Graham
Schrole is a streamlined cloud recruitment system that connects leading international schools with the world’s best teachers.
Schrole’s request to The Cohorts was to design an integrated, secure, simple-to-use cloud-based site to connect schools and teachers, and make it as easy as possible for schools to receive, rank and shortlist applicants for jobs. Schrole also needed naming, brand development, marketing and communications to support the launch of the product, which The Cohorts delivered in collaboration with Unsworth Shepherd.
The Cohorts delivered a site with unique features designed to make life easy for users around the world. Schrole’s smart online application process gathers qualifications and references to pre-qualify applicants so schools don’t waste time on unsuitable candidates. The system asks all the standard questions of applicants, and allows schools to add questions tailored to their particular needs. Applicants may also upload ‘soft-copy’ information; personal statements about their suitability for a role, portfolios of work, etc. Qualified applicants are automatically rated and ranked to make it easy for a school to identify the top candidates for a role.
The cloud-based system means applicant information can be accessed anytime, anywhere in the world as candidates are assessed. When many international schools have leadership teams spread across several countries, this facilitates collaboration for shortlisting.
Schrole’s site is an outstanding example of the degree of online connection and collaboration that can be achieved with cloud-based solutions.
