Jobsite launches iPhone app as part of ongoing mobile strategy

ëJobsite Jobsí ensures job seekers never miss an opportunity

Finding a job just got a little easier for iPhone users, as Jobsite.co.uk launch ‘Jobsite Jobs’ - their free job search application.

This latest innovation is part of Jobsite’s philosophy to make job hunting quicker, easier and less frustrating. The ‘Jobsite Jobs’ app enables job seekers to search for jobs whenever and wherever they want, ensuring they never miss an opportunity.

Users can search for jobs by job title, location, contract type and date added to the site – from the last two hours to the previous seven days. Results can be sorted by relevance, salary or date. Job seekers are able to view full details of the job on their iPhone and have the choice to save the opportunity and apply later or apply via their iPhone using their CV stored on Jobsite.

Keith Potts, CEO of Jobsite.co.uk comments; “Traditionally, going online was restricted to a computer but with the development of new technologies there is a quickly developing preference among some audience segments to search the web via mobile.

“Last year we saw the number of people using mobile devices to access Jobsite increase dramatically, with a growth of 136% between January and its peak in October. We expect this to increase further with the wider adoption of smart phones in 2010 and beyond.

”To ensure we provide the best service to this audience the ‘Jobsite Jobs’ iPhone app is the first in a series of mobile developments. Over the coming months we will be launching further innovative products and tools to help job seekers look for work in the most convenient way for them. This commitment will also help to ensure that our recruiters continue to find the best people to fill their vacancies.”
