Latest figures released by niche job board network 247recruit show that their database has grown to over 400,000 registered candidates.
Statistics released today by 247recruit for the period to 30th June 2012 also show monthly traffic exceeding 300,000 visits for the second quarter of 2012, representing a 50% increase on the same period in 2011.
Managing Director, Andrew Bird attributed some of the growth to the campaigns that they have been running for the London 2012 Olympics:
"The hospitality recruitment campaigns that we ran for twelve Olympic venues definitely reached new candidates who were excited by the prospect of working at the games. This combined with our usual seasonal uplift for student summer jobs to help us deliver our highest ever quarter for site traffic. 400,000 registered candidates is another significant milestone for us and we will now focus on reaching our next target of half a million candidates by 2013."
The 247recruit network comprises 16 specialist job sites operating in the leisure, travel and hospitality sectors.
