William Reed Business Media Ltd has announced the latest upgrades to their niche online recruitment portfolio. Leading job sites Grocer Jobs, Foodmanjobs and BigHospitality Jobs have all migrated to the latest version of the award-winning Madgex Job Board Platform.
From retail to hospitality, manufacturing to grocery, William Reed Business Media has been providing market-leading business information to the food and drink sector for almost 150 years. This latest move will see the introduction of a range of new features and functionality for improved user experience for both job seekers and recruiters.
The new look sites offer the latest online tools to help job seekers find the best jobs and recruiters find the best candidates. In order to adapt to changing user habits and to meet the growing use of mobile devices by job seekers, each site has a fully-branded mobile-optimised site. Other additional functionality includes a new integrated Twitter tool allowing jobs to be automatically posted on a various Twitter accounts and a new reporting suite.
Job seekers can create a user profile in seconds and upload their CV which can then be accessed from any computer. The new sites also allow job seekers to create personalised email alerts for the latest jobs directly from search pages. Each time a job seeker applies for a role advertised on the site, their application history is maintained, helping track and monitor job activity.
Recruiters have a wide range of sales inventory to choose from via the new look recruiter services homepage. From the secure self-service area, recruiters can post jobs quickly and easily by selecting the posting option that best suits their needs. They can also access detailed reports to help monitor the success of their jobs. Recruiters can also take advantage of options to promote their services with fully-branded recruiter mini-sites and inclusion in the Recruiter A–Z directory.
The Madgex Roadmap ensures that all of William Reed’s job sites will benefit from ongoing innovation and enhancements with updates every six months. This approach helps maximise revenues, drive down operational costs and maximise the quantity and quality of responses.
Elaine Marshall, Executive Director, William Reed Business Media, commented, “In the fast changing world of online recruitment, we certainly can’t afford to sit still. Since moving onto the latest version of the Madgex platform we have seen an increase of users across all our boards, there has also been an immediate increase in mobile traffic. The improved features and functionality have been received positively from clients and candidates, and we’re looking forward to the next installment!”
