STV Jobs has announced the launch of their innovative new STV Jobs iPhone app, the first ever for a Scottish jobs website, providing job seekers with instant access to all the latest and best vacancies across Scotland. The app is free and available to download now from the App Store.
The STV Jobs app has a wide range of features specifically designed to help job seekers on the move keep up to date with the latest career opportunities. Job seekers can search for jobs based on familiar criteria such as job title, location and salary band. The app automatically saves searches and sends real time push notification alerts whenever a new job has been added to STV Jobs. Job seekers can tailor their alert notifications in the settings ensuring they receive alerts at a time convenient for them.
Once job seekers have successfully found their ideal job they can tap through to view the full job detail and apply directly from their iPhone. If job seekers are not already registered with STV Jobs they can create a profile and upload their CV in 3 easy steps.
Mike Ferguson, Head of Classified at STV, explains: “The new app offers instant information on thousands of vacancies across the country from STV Jobs.”
“This is the first time a jobs app has benefited from real time alerts, so if a user saves a particular search, for example, financial services in Edinburgh, they will receive a notification directly to their handset as soon as a new position matching their chosen criteria is added.”
“STV’s digital development is key to our strategy and we’re striving to make as much of our content as readily and widely available as possible, across multiple platforms, so that audiences can access it where, when and how they want it.”
This latest launch is part of STV Jobs continued commitment to providing job seekers with the tools they need to find their next career move. The STV Jobs app will help the increasing number of people searching for jobs from mobile devices in Scotland. Earlier this year STV also launched CV Magnet an advanced CV search and match tool fully integrated with STV Jobs job board.
