Building on the success of Pocket DV3, which positioned 4MAT as the leading provider of mobile recruitment websites, the updated version allows the candidate to fill a mobile-optimised form to apply for vacancies, register and set up job alert email notifications. Read more on the website here.
Apply by LinkedIn is a core feature of the software, and 4MAT is unique as the only provider of a complete mobile product which incorporates this technology. Unlike bespoke software produced on a case-by-case basis, this launch gives recruiters the opportunity to covert mobile placements with a comprehensive ready-made product.
Digital services provided by 4MAT, which include desktop recruitment websites, digital marketing and employer branding, are complemented by this release. During 2012 they delivered over 30 recruitment mobile websites, demonstrating their expertise as a trusted provider to the recruitment industry.
Michael Bennett, Director at ReThink Recruitment bought a mobile website to make it easier for his candidates to search and apply for jobs. He says “This new service makes job hunting on-the-go much easier, which is increasingly how candidates are choosing to look for work. We are confident that the functionality of our site is streets ahead of our competitors. Those looking to switch employers will be able to access new jobs more quickly than ever.”
Mobile usage is predicted to overtake desktop browsing in 2013. A Potential Park study found that 88% of job seekers look for a job on their mobile, with nearly 1 in 3 keen to apply for roles on their phones. The recruitment industry is slow to provide the technology to fulfil this demand, with 4MAT’s Apply by Linked on mobile functionality set to revolutionise what is available to them.
Andrew Soane, Client Development Director, explains what this advancement means for the sector:
“This product launch delivers exactly what recruiters and employers need to covert candidates looking for vacancies on their mobile, and connecting their application with LinkedIn to send their online CV.
LinkedIn is currently the most important social media platform for recruitment. The mobile trend is unavoidable too. With 2.8million jobseekers a month accessing job listings from a mobile, and 67% looking daily (according to comScore), this innovation is a must-have for any business that’s serious about attracting quality talent.”
