Lastminute.com enters jobs market
Lastminute.com has added a jobs channel to its site. It is the latest in a series of online services from the leisure travel retailer, which has 3.3 million unique users per month.The artificial intelligence tagging technology, powered by New9to5.com, provides far more precise matches of jobseekers and jobs than has been achieved online before.
The technology makes life easy for jobseekers by “reading” their CVs and extracting information with a high degree of accuracy, with no forms to fill out.
It uses predictive matching to match them to vacancies using a database of millions of hiring decisions, employment analytics, trends, and career paths.
Visitors to lastminute.com’s jobs site will immediately have access to more than 50,000 jobs posted on New9to5.com, which has already become one of the top UKjob web sites since its launch last month.
Peter Woodfine, commercial partnerships manager at lastminute.com, said:
“We are continually looking at ways to enhance the customer experience and we are delighted to be introducing a jobs search which will complement the range of extra services we offer in addition to sales of travel and leisure products.”
Dan Brassington, chief executive of New9to5.com, commented:
“Lastminute.com chose us as their partner because our service to jobseekers is far more advanced than anyone else’s. Visitors to their site will immediately be able to find the best possible match from more than 50,000 jobs that we have already attracted.”
The site covers a range of industry sectors and most candidates and jobs are expected to be in areas such as: IT; banking and finance; office, administration and PA; sales and marketing; legal; and accountancy.
The lastminute.com Jobs Channel system also provides savings to recruiters who post jobs on the site by eliminating time wasted on keyword searching CV databases and searching for candidates by providing better-matched candidates for roles quickly and efficiently.
