Global mining group Xstrata which operates in 18 countries is deploying an online recruitment system throughout its global network.
The NGA.NET system will be rolled out as Xstrata's own recruitment system across its 18 country accounts and six businesses which encompasses the management of the company's 50,000 employees.
Xstrata HR general manager, Phil Jones, said the e-recruitment system has been in use in Australia for the past four years and by expanding its use to all countries will allow the business greater exposure to advertise vacant positions.
It will allow one location for all company vacancies and candidate data, while maintaining the autonomy of the company's individual businesses.
Jones said employees can now source global roles, the system will reduce administrative time and costs, and the use of standardised automatic electronic communication tools reduces paper usage.
It also gives the company the capacity to build an international talent pool and the establishment of one platform to deliver recruitment outcomes and manage human resources throughout the company.
NGA. NET CEO, Mike Giuffrida, said the company wide implementation will be aligned with the rollout of a global Xstrata job vacancy Web site.
