What is MyNewTerm?

MyNewTerm is a multi-award winning, innovative web application developed by teachers out of the moral purpose to support schools and multi-academy trusts to improve efficiency and save on the cost to recruit.

With a proven model of success, MyNewTerm has connected tens of thousands of candidates directly with employers. The application empowers candidates to be able to easily search, setup personalised job alerts and apply direct to schools and MATs online via a fully GDPR & Keeping Children Safe in Education compliant application.

Schools and multi-academy trusts can brand careers pages to showcase as an employer of choice, improve efficiency by easily managing all candidate applications online using a bespoke Applicant Tracking System (ATS), and benefit from automated features to save time including an innovate API to automatically display vacancies on school/trust websites. Multi-academy trusts also have the option to centralise recruitment and utilise MyNewTerm for member schools.

The application is now utilised as the sole careers platform by hundreds of schools and multi-academy trusts to improve efficiency, ensure compliance and increase candidate attraction.

We are delighted to have won a number of awards including; 'Best start-up technology business', 'Best technology collaboration' (following our continued partnership with local universities) and 'Best Innovation'.

Sylwia

HR Advisor

Dulwich College, England

Mar 2024

There is still plenty to improve to make it 10 but it`s a very helpful platform. More flexibility and understanding that sometimes processes are not as straightforward when it comes to individual contractors in regulated activities, volunteers or even using the portal for internal processes with external colleagues.

Reply from MyNewTerm:Thanks very much for taking the time to feedback, Sylwia; the majority of our updates and changes are a result of vital feedback from customers like you. We will keep you updated on the developments to the internal candidate application you referenced. We're really pleased that the platform is speeding up many processes for you and that the data that the system gathers is proving useful.
Sylwia found MyNewTerm:
  • Slightly saves school money
    MNT supports the team by lowering the amount of time used for admin related tasks.
  • Moderately provides school data
    KPI`s are more accurate and relevant when blind recruitment is actioned. There is still a risk that recruitment might be not as neutral after the shortlisting stage.
  • Moderately improves school processes
    It helps in many processes e.g. requesting references, obtaining declarations. But it can be also a bit affecting those internal candidates who would not welcome spending time on completing the forms and declarations...
