Drapersjobs.com, the official job board of Drapers, has been awarded the title of 'Niche Job Board of the Year 2012' at the prestigious OnRec awards. The OnRec awards are the online recruitment industry’s most prestigious Awards Ceremony. Drapersjobs.com fought off fierce competition from other sites such as CWJobs.co.uk to claim the coveted prize.
Tracey Davies, MD of Retail at Emap said, “For Drapersjobs to win this award 12 months to the day since the site relaunched is incredible. 18 months ago no one would have believed that Emap would win an award for being ahead digitally. This is testament to the team that took Emap from a print - led business to being digitally – led. A great first award for the all new Emap.”
The award comes at the end of a twelve month period that has seen traffic to Drapersjobs.com increase 146% year on year, applications rise 263% year on year, applications per vacancy increase from 4.5 to 10.12 and 35% digital revenue growth year on year as the site has worked with world class global brands such as Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger.
