STV Jobs has announced the introduction of a new mobile site dedicated to making job hunting a faster and easier experience.
Job seekers with internet enabled mobile phones can now enjoy full access to STV Jobs via their handset. The site has been designed to allow job seekers to quickly and easily search for the latest job opportunities whilst on the move. Job seekers can search by job title, location and salary band and apply for jobs directly from the website using their previously created profile and stored CV. If they don’t have time to apply at the time, users can email themselves the full job detail and apply at a later date.
The mobile site is designed to automatically identify what type of mobile device is being used and instantly show the best format for that particular model. It features an elegant design built for speed, even on the slowest connection.
The number of users accessing the STV Jobs website via mobile devices has increased substantially, with analytics showing a rise of 50% between the first and second half of 2010. It is expected that this will increase further with the introduction of the new mobile site.
Mike Ferguson, Head of Classified at STV, explained: “The STV Jobs mobile site has been developed as part of our commitment to mobile technology and the STV Anywhere strategy, striving to make STV’s content available to our audience anytime, anywhere. We are delighted to be able to offer job seekers an alternative way of accessing STV Jobs on the move.”
The mobile site has been developed for STV by job board specialists Madgex. Simon Conroy, CEO of Madgex, commented: "The mobile interface allows job seekers to search or browse for jobs based on various search criteria such as sector, location and salary band. Once the user has found a relevant job they can view the job details and apply directly from their handset. When applying for a job on the mobile site, users will simply need to enter their email address and password to complete their application."
This latest launch is part of STV Jobs continued commitment to providing job seekers with all the tools they need to find their next career move. Over the last 6 months STV jobs has also launched CV Magnet an advanced CV search and match tool fully integrated with STV Jobs job board and a push notification iPhone app.
