JobboardIT, one of the first online recruitment resources for the information technology sector, has been given a major facelift by Brainhunter.
Its user base of professionals, employers and recruiters will now have access to an enhanced range of services, support, contacts and job opportunities as the business moves into its second decade of operation.
Starting out in 1998 as a UK-focused service, designed and built by a team of IT recruitment experts, JobboardIT quickly attracted the interest of a pan European audience.
With increasing globalisation of both work and communications, the site has since evolved into a truly international resource.
Befitting this global status, and ensuring broad online and SEO exposure for all jobs posted on the site, JobboardIT will now also be available as a dotcom domain.
Many IT professionals see JobboardIT as their long term career partner, revisiting and re-engaging with the site at each stage of their career progression.
Over 14 million searches have been run on the site and last month alone, 1,189 job applications were submitted. Similarly, numerous recruiters and IT businesses have been regular users of the service since the start.
“We found the original JobboardIT to be the most effective channel into the European technology skills marketplace;” commented Joanne Parlett, Marketing Manager of Square One Resources, the UK’s leading specialist IT recruitment consultancy.
“Our business specialises in providing highly proficient IT staff with multi-lingual communication skills into technology partners such as SAP and Oracle, and as such it is vital that we can reach and engage with the top talent available regardless of location.
“The newly enhanced recruitment service will further extend our capabilities and ensure we can recruit the optimal individuals for each role we work on.”
In addition to conducting a proactive programme to drive quality end users and vacancies onto the service, Brainhunter has incorporated the vital tools required to speed up, optimise and streamline the recruitment process, at the same time as ensuring the best person can be easily found, identified and recruited for a role.
Immediate categorisation of candidates into A & B groupings based on intricate, database-driven criteria enables any employer or recruiter to immediately focus in on the most relevant applicants, while effective management of all candidate communications is assured via the pre-written messages that enhance the recruitment experience for all parties.
JobboardIT offers a broad range of packages and opportunities to suit every type of recruitment need, from one off placements to annual volume rates.
Special launch pricing is available up until 30th November 2008 to enable recruiters and employers to explore for themselves the capabilities and effectiveness of the new service, backed up by expert advice and support from the Brainhunter team.
Pre-launch marketing activity is already underway and has generated a wealth of new job seeker registrations from IT professionals seeking out the most effective route into their next role.
Now part of the Brainhunter CareerSite network, JobboardIT joins a selective, high profile portfolio of recruitment services that includes the Ecologist Magazine, UKRecruiter:Jobs, the Institute of Leadership & Management and the Institute of Sales & Marketing Management.
