GorkanaJobs.co.uk provides thousands of job opportunities in public relations and journalism from leading employers across the UK and abroad. Whether you are looking for the latest journalism and PR roles or wanting to advertise a position, Gorkana Jobs is a leading source of editorial, production and PR agency and client side vacancies in the UK.
The site offers job seekers a range of new tools to make finding their next career move as simple and easy as possible. The advanced search and browse navigation system helps job seekers find relevant jobs with a range of criteria and will only display jobs which are live on the site. To keep up to date with latest jobs added to the site, job seekers can create email alerts based on their search criteria so they don’t have to keep coming back to the site. This is one of the most effective methods to engage with job seekers and help drive relevant traffic and applications.
Recruiters can now choose from an increased sales inventory all carefully designed to help increase application and response rates. The Recruiter Services section of the site enables recruiters to select the most relevant posting options, access reports and choose their preferred payment options. Recruiters can also source candidates via the CV search feature by either searching the database or by uploading an ‘Ideal CV’ or job description. This displays a list of fully anonymised CVs helping recruiters to make informed buying decisions.
Christian Destro, Recruitment & Advertising Manager, Gorkana said “We needed to consolidate our standing as the number one job site for editorial vacancies in the UK, and give ourselves a sophisticated platform to allow us to enhance our standing further within the PR jobs market. It’s fantastic to be working with Madgex, who has provided us with exactly what we required. We look forward to our continued success with Madgex”.
Simon Conroy, CEO, Madgex commented “Gorkana offers a unique and highly valued service to their extensive membership base of PR and journalism professionals. We are thrilled to help Gorkana take their online recruitment business to the next level by offering a robust and flexible job board platform. Our dedication to user experience and innovation gives both job seekers and recruiters the online tools needed to find the best jobs and recruiters the best candidates".
Founded in 2003, Gorkana provides PRs and journalists with a range of tools to help them do their job efficiently and effectively. As a business founded by ex-PRs, they understand the industry. As such we have developed a range of products and services to help save them time and effort: from the daily Gorkana Alerts highlighting the latest journalist moves and jobs, to the Gorkana Media Database providing detailed and accurate information on the media and journalists.
