Leading specialist food industry job board Yourfoodjob.com has re-launched on the latest version of the Madgex job board platform. The new site has a refreshed design and features a new mobile site aimed at harnessing the growing number of mobile job seekers.
This investment in a new job board platform is the end of what has been the best year to date for Yourfoodjob.com. The site itself is attracting 10,000 more visitors each month than this time last year and its working with double the amount of clients. The site was also nominated for its first ever accolade; “Best Niche Job Board”, at this years’ prestigious Onrec (Online Recruitment) awards.
Yourfoodjob.com, whose mantra is ‘food jobs for food people’, is a specialist recruitment website and regularly attracts over 40,000 visitors by food professionals each month. These could be recent graduates or seasoned directors but each is looking for their next job in the food industry. Success has mainly been for senior technical, production, new product development, engineering and commercial roles but this is expanding into other food-business areas as its reputation grows. Over 700 jobs (UK & International) are advertised onsite at any one time and many of these on behalf of some of the world’s biggest food companies.
General Manager, Tony Allen said: ‘We originally launched in 2006 and over the years have grown from a standing start to regularly attracting over 40,000 visits each month by food professionals. However, after 5 years of successful trading, we felt that the time had finally come to give the site an overhaul. Working with our partners Madgex and agreeing to move on to their top platform “version 3”, every element of the site has been upgraded; from the logo and look of the site itself, to the whole back office set up”.
Tony continues “We now have a mobile enabled version and are fully integrated into all the major social media networks. Ultimately, this means more visitors, even better SEO and many new ways to reach and identify senior food professionals. In other words; a totally fresh and improved customer experience for candidates and clients alike! The upgrade is already paying dividends, for example, the rate of new visitor registrations per day has increased from 5 to 55, which is phenomenal”.
By adopting the latest version of the Madgex job board platform Yourfoodjobs.com will further strengthen their position in the market by offering an advanced array of online tools for both job seekers and recruiters alike. Job seekers can create a user profile in minutes and by uploading their CV it allows recruiters to find them easily to offer new career opportunities. The new mobile site enables job seekers using internet enabled devices to search and apply for roles directly from their device. Recruiters can choose from a wide selection of advertising options including inclusion in the Recruiter A‑Z and even create fully branded recruiter mini-sites to promote their brand.
