Former Mightymatch Plc co-founder heads up Direct Jobs - 11/2001

Eamon Downey appointed managing director

Eamon Downey has been appointed managing director of DirectJobs.net ìIíve spent the last three years trying to find the simplest, quickest & most cost effective solution for companies to hire online, this is it! Direct Jobs has the perfect ingredients that combine traditional and online recruitment methods which eliminate placement fees. The great thing is, that the model works across all industries and skill-sets giving Direct Jobs the maximum audience.î

The Direct Jobs model is already proving itself in a competitive space. The largest diesel engineering company in the world, Cummins Plc, commissioned Direct Jobs in March to handle all their Internet advertising and recruitment via www.directjobs/cummins, this has reduced their recruitment cost to 20% of its former level. John Rushe, co-founder and company secretary says, ìBefore Eamon got involved we had some success with the concept. However, we realised we needed someone with Eamonís Internet recruitment experience to pick up the baton and unlock its true potential. Eamon has refined the concept and improved the business model and as a result we are now extremely well placed to take full advantage of the tremendous increase in online recruitmentî.

Direct Jobs are holding a free Internet recruitment seminar at the Institute of Directors in London on the 24th of January 2002 in partnership with SHL & Computeraid.
