The new Brand Republic Jobs app is easy and straight forward to use and features a host of tools to help jobseekers on the move find their ideal career opportunity. Jobseekers can search or filter jobs via a range of criteria including job title, salary band and location. Once an ideal job has been found, jobseekers can view the full job detail and apply directly from their iPhone.
The app also lets the user create ‘push’ notifications meaning that they can stay in touch with every relevant career opportunity as soon as it is advertised on the site. All the latest jobs can now be sent directly to a jobseekers iPhone much like a text message or new email alert making it easier to stay up to date with the latest jobs.
This second generation iPhone app was designed to focus on the strengths of how jobseekers use mobile devices. As you would expect from Madgex, we conducted rigorous user experience testing to ensure a seamless user experience for jobseekers. The push notification app harnesses the full power of the Madgex job board platform.The fully integrated reporting tools provide excellent management information on usage and trends to support informed decision making.
The move is part of Haymarket’s ongoing programme, which will see all of their sites migrating to the latest version of the Madgex job board platform with integrated CV Search & Match. Brand Republic Jobs is the first of Haymarket Business Media specialist job sites to roll out the new push notification jobseeker app, with Third Sector Jobs and PRWeek Jobs also launching their apps before the end of the year.
Stephen Dodds, Online Marketing Manager comments; ‘Brand Republic Jobs provides jobseekers with both the widest range of marketing, advertising and media jobs as well as a sector leading user experience. In such a fast moving sector as marcomms it is a logical step for us to want to provide our customers with the latest jobseeking tools available. We are confident that our new app will continue to help jobseekers find and apply to relevant jobs quickly and easily.’
Simon Conroy, CEO Madgex, added ‘we are delighted that we have been able to work closely with Haymarket Business Media to develop their new Brand Republic Jobs iPhone app. Haymarket were quick to recognise the importance of having a mobile presence to compliment their existing job board activities creating a multi-channel approach to digital recruitment. Like everyone else, jobseekers are on the move and they need a solution that meets their needs whether on a mobile device or from the desktop. Brand Republic Jobs has bridged this gap with the introduction of their new push notification iPhone app and builds upon their mobile web enabled job board.”
