Cofely Besix Facility Management introduces region’s first online recruitment videos
Leading FM provider, Cofely Besix Facility Management (CBFM), recently introduced the region’s first online recruitment videos targeting potential FM job applicants, as part of their new regional recruitment process.
The recruitment videos, featuring existing CBFM employees, are showcased on the company’s website (www.cofely-besix.com), and offer potential applicants a visual and engaging way to access various job descriptions.
The videos feature interviews with various electricians, mechanical technicians and HVAC technicians which were conducted in their mother tongue, thereby making the understanding for applicants much easier, and it gives them a clearer insight into the various job requirements, as well as the specific skill-sets required for each job.
The interviews with the staff outlining the job descriptions and skills required, are all conducted in Hindi, as this is the area where most of CBFM’s applicants originate from. The videos also include footage of each employee’s work environment and staff accommodation, to give prospective employees a better understanding of what the role involves, as well as being able to visualise what it will be like working at CBFM.
