WALES: Daily Post is tops for jobs.

A NEW survey shows fish4jobs, the recruitment website part-owned by the Daily Post, attracts more job-seekers than any other online jobs site in the UK, with more than 1.6m people visiting every month.

The National Online Recruitment Audience Survey (Noras) also shows fish4jobs is attracting more and more users from all walks of life and job types.

The website fish4jobs.co.uk, which carries over 40,000 job adverts at any one time, powers the 'jobs search' section on the Daily Post website www.icnorthwales.co.uk. Job vacancies advertised come from all industry sectors, but fish4jobs particularly specialises in 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 because it carries more jobs across all parts of the country than anyone else, readers and internet users in North Wales can access hundreds of local vacancies simply by logging onto www.icnorthwales.co.uk.

The research shows 19% of job-seekers are using fish4jobs to find a part-time job. In all, 60% of those on fish4jobs are female and 61% of users are 16 to 34-years-old. And the survey found that nearly 50% of fish4job users successfully found a job on the website.

Daily Post editor Rob Irvine said: "We are delighted to be in partnership with such a hugely successful online recruitment service as fish4jobs, who offer a great range of jobs in North Wales.

"Our research shows that you, our readers, are increasingly using our website www.icnorthwales.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."
