XPATJobs launches series of country-specific recruitment websites

XPATJobs, the UK’s biggest online careers website for international jobseekers, has today completed the launch of nine recruitment websites focused on the countries overseas candidates search most.

Supported by the company’s industry-leading site, which sees 100,000 jobs posted each day, the new sites will provide recruiters and hiring managers with access to a network of more than 1 million registered jobseekers.

The new job boards will serve as a leading careers destination for jobs across a range of industry sectors within each specific country, and they are set to become an essential recruitment resource for recruiters, hiring managers and job seekers alike.

The sites that have been launched are:

The new sites incorporate the same functionality as the site: Their intuitive systems enable users to conduct a quick search for their ideal role, while the simple registration process offers easy CV uploading and a straightforward application process in addition to providing daily or weekly (depending on their preferences) alerts featuring jobs that match their specific requirements.  

For recruiters and employers, the site offers easy job posting at highly competitive rates as well as access to the largest network of candidates searching overseas roles.

Rhys Maddocks, managing director of XPATJobs, said: “While the US and Middle East have long been the primary destinations of choice for job seekers wanting to pursue their careers overseas, they are quickly being caught up – and in some cases overtaken – by other regions.

“Australia has always been high on the list of places to live and work, and we don’t anticipate that changing anytime soon. But over the last 12 months – and more so in the wake of the UK’s decision to leave the EU – there has been a marked shift in the countries most searched by job seekers, many of which are closer to home.

“Searches for jobs in Belgium and Austria, for instance, have seen a dramatic rise in recent months and are in line with an increase in new roles being advertised for those countries. It is a similar story for France, Holland and Germany too, while Italy – despite its relatively turbulent economy – still has a need for skilled overseas workers and they in turn remain keen on working there.”

The launch of these new sites provides recruiters and candidates with a highly targeted recruitment solution. Mr Maddocks added:

“Each site will give job seekers an insight into the industry’s experiencing the highest demand for overseas workers, as well as access to the latest and largest choice of jobs that are available for foreign workers in that country.”
