Local World launches new responsive jobs platform


Local World unveiled a new online jobs platform at the end of 2014, which allows each of the company’s 79 newspaper websites to connect to a powerful central database, enabling recruiters to post vacancies locally and nationally across the Local World network.

For candidates, the new responsive design features bring improved user experience and search performance whether accessing the site using a desktop, tablet or mobile device.

Recruiters also benefit from a dedicated ‘recruiter’ area, allowing them to manage their account, create campaigns and access a fully-integrated reporting suite.

Local World commercial director Blanche Sainsbury said: "Recruitment is a very competitive market and with many national job boards already in existence. But Local World has a unique offering of local candidates and local recruiters, bringing the two together under the umbrella of the local newspaper brand, yet with the flexibility to deliver national coverage to meet recruiter needs.

"We want to make it easy for recruiters to do business with us 24/7 so with our new website we have a self-serve option for recruiters, so placing a vacancy is no longer tied to office hours. We are a fully 24/7 transactional business."
