UK launch of ClickAJob - 07/2001

Improved transparency in the job market

Launched amidst much controversy, ClickAJobís founder, Yngve Traberg, said, ìOur mission is to create improved transparency in the job market and to ease the recruitment process for both job seekers and employers alike. We will achieve this by bringing all the jobs from the UKs important jobsites into one place, resulting in the largest searchable job database in the UK. It will enable jobseekers to search across a multitude of career sites with one click ñ a major benefit when there are 250 individual online job boards out there.î

Job hunters will also benefit from the ëJob Agentí, an advanced e-lert service that keeps registered candidates posted about new and suitable job opportunities via email.

Asked how employers will benefit, Yngve explained, ìClickAJob will act as an Application Service Provider (ASP), enabling a direct connection between employers and employees and allowing companies to manage their entire staffing requirements with ease.î

Once a job has been posted, clients can use the ëHR Portal Control Panelí to view the status of each vacancy posted, edit job descriptions and add new jobs, whilst a ëJob Statistics Screení enables them to monitor the number of hits any particular advertisement has received. ClickAJobís unique ëHR Portalí will create a dynamic link from the site to the clientís personal recruitment web pages. If amendments are made to a job or a new position is posted, these changes are immediately duplicated on the clientís website.
