Fish4 biggest catch for jobs.
YOUR Liverpool Echo is the number one for recruitment as a survey has revealed fish4 as the UK's biggest jobs website.
The new survey revealed that fish4jobs, the recruitment website that's part owned by the Liverpool Echo, attracts more jobseekers than any other online jobs site in the UK with over 1.6 million people visiting per month.
The National Online Recruitment Audience Survey (NORAS 2006 survey) also shows that fish4jobs is attracting more and more users from all walks of life and job types fish4jobs.co.uk, which carries over 40k job adverts at any one time, powers the 'jobs search' section on www.jobs-merseyside.co.uk, this newspaper's local website.
Job vacancies advertised come from all industry sectors, but fish4 particularly specialises in the following areas - retail, sales, engineering, customer service, call centre, construction, driving and IT. fish4jobs puts its success down to being a big nationwide brand that thinks and acts locally.
This means that because it carries more jobs across all parts of the country than anyone else, readers and internet users in the Merseyside area can access hundreds of local vacancies simply by logging onto www.jobs-merseyside.co.uk.
Sean Mahon, fish4's marketing director, summed up fish4's approach by saying: "Many other generalist internet job sites tend to carry a heavy weighting of jobs for London and the South East of England. At fish4jobs we pride ourselves on carrying a multitude of vacancies all over the UK.
"Our local strength is reflected by the increases in the amount of jobseekers that are searching for jobs on fish4 from all over the country, from big cities to rural areas. Not only that, but more and more candidates are registering their CV with us so that recruiters can find them."
The NORAS research also reveals the growing popularity of the internet as a medium of choice for everyday people who are job-hunting.
For example, reflecting the changing employment landscape in the UK, 19% of job seekers are using fish4jobs to find a part-time job.
60% of those on fish4jobs are female and 61% of users are aged between 16 and 34-years-old. All candidates are big readers of the local press which is not surprising as fish4 advertises in local papers, including this one, regularly.
Finally, and most importantly, the survey found that nearly 50% of fish4job users have successfully found a job on the website.
Sara Wilde, regional managing director of Trinity Mirror NW2 which owns the Liverpool Echo, said: "We are delighted to be in partnership with such a hugely successful online recruitment service as fish4jobs, which offers a great range of jobs in Merseyside.
"Our research shows that you, our readers, are increasingly using our website www.jobs-merseyside.co.uk in conjunction with fish4jobs making our website the first port of call when looking for new, local positions.
"We always strive to add value to you - our valued readers - and our partnership with fish4jobs is one way of ensuring that we do."
