Today, Jobsite announces collaboration with travel time search platform, iGeolise. The alliance, which is a first between any of the major UK job boards, is set to revolutionise candidate sourcing. The technology allows recruiters to locate prospective candidates using real time transport routes to a specific location rather than calculating distance as the crow flies.
The technology’s innovative algorithm uses commute times and routes to calculate accurate point-to-point travel times. The result is much more relevant results than using traditional ‘distance’ data.
Users benefit from eliminating candidates living in commuter black spots who may have previously been deemed as appropriate. In addition they will also open up candidates who might have previously been excluded from a recruiter search for falling outside of a prescribed ‘miles radius’.
Charlie Davies, Co-Founder of iGeolise commented, “Our tool eases decision-making, and will help Jobsite provide relevant results for its clients. We are really excited about our successes in the time-based search industry so far, and strongly believe the same success can apply in recruitment.”
Chris Burles, Recruiter Product Manager at Jobsite said, “We are thrilled to be the only major job board to be able to offer the travel time feature. With iGeolise being experts in this area, partnering with them was a ‘no brainer’.
One of our aims, as an organisation, is to provide the tools for clients to be as efficient as possible, maximising their ROI. Initial results from the travel time feature have shown an average improvement in location relevance of over 60%, meaning we are providing more relevant candidates to our clients faster than competitors”.
