The centrepiece to George Osborne’s latest budget was his solution to Britain’s low pay problem, a progressive increase to a national living wage of £9ph by 2020. This begins with a rise in minimum wage to £7.20 in April of 2016, news that a lot of recruitment consultants may regard with trepidation as they consider all the records on their recruitment database that need to be updated.
A time was when recruiters would be stuck in the office over the weekend to frantically update the rates attached to all of their jobs and contracts. Fortunately, users of MatchMaker recruitment software will have no such worry as they can take advantage of our Batch Change Rates feature to update all of them in one go.
Not only can you select and bulk update as many pay and/or charge rates as you need to with a couple of clicks, they can also schedule the change to take place automatically on a certain date. Simply select the jobs you wish to update, enter your changes and enter the date you would like them to take effect. You can even choose from a selection of edits such as changing rates by or to a certain value, or even by percentage. Done. No need to even log into your database, MatchMaker will take care of it for you.
Your recruitment software should work for you, not the other way around. For more information on batch changing pay/charge rates or any other aspects of our recruitment software please get in touch by clicking here or give us a call on +44(0)121 475 6444.
