Job Board Journal: a weekly column covering the art and science of job boards & other online recruitment advertising solutions by TAtech CGO Stephen O’Donnell.
Every job board is distinctive in their own way, but Reed.co.uk is set apart from regular job boards in the UK. As a generalist job board cover all industries and pay grades, it regularly boasts the largest number of live vacancies, and is a great barometer for the state of the hiring landscape in the UK. Managing Director Simon Wingate has been with Reed for 13 years, and has a unique insight to the behaviours of employers, recruitment firms and jobseekers themselves, and of course the way that expectations are continually raised by all participants.
I found this to be a fascinating discussion, especially at a time when the employment market is evolving so fast in the UK and Europe.
