Ei Publican Partnerships enhances recruitment tool to attract prospective publicans

Ei Publican Partnerships is working with MyPubGroup.ltd on a new recruitment portal, MyPubDNA, as part of its ongoing digital enhancement project designed to support the recruitment of prospective publicans.

MyPubDNA helps Ei Publican Partnerships to discover, drive and define its vacant positions within the marketplace. Through its cutting-edge technology and insights, the portal will help the Group discover how its pubs are performing in the recruitment market place, drive its recruitment strategy based on live analysis, and help define offers and agreements to ensure each pub vacancy is pitched to its target market.

The recruitment tool lists available pubs to let across the sector, filtered by rent level and requirements, including food or drink-led, as well as the local demographic and offers a downloadable database of significant and thorough regional statistics.

Matthew Ralphs, Recruitment Marketing Manager at Ei Group, said: 'Recruitment is a vital part of running a successful pub company and something we approach strategically. We're thrilled to be working in partnership with MyPubGroup.ltd on its new platform, using its innovative services and industry knowledge, adding value to not only our business, but most importantly to our future publicans.

'We're determined to be at the forefront of future trends and continuing to attract the best operators in the business. By using this sophisticated bit of technology we're able to help publicans find a pub in the right location, with the right demographic, retail offer and amenities to ensure it will thrive.'

In addition, MyPubGroup.ltd has been able to create an add-on to the portal called MyPubMatch - enabling a candidate's personal profile to be matched to suitable vacancies using a bespoke algorithm that matches the potential publican's skills and desires to available pubs.

Helen Lees, Group MD at MyPubGroup.ltd, added: 'Having worked with Ei Publican Partnerships for almost 10 years, our relationship has grown from strength to strength. We've been discussing ways we can add even more value to the business and its recruitment strategy.'

The website receives 47,000 visitors a month and of those who register, 95% are actively selecting to be visible within the MyPubMatch tool.

Helen added: 'I have no doubt the new platform will be a success, whilst providing quality recruitment choices for Ei Publican Partnerships' quality pubs. It's a forward-thinking company that holds similar values to us, and I look forward to growing the partnership even further in the future.'
