HIJOBS announce new app launch
HIJOBS, one of Scotland’s fast emerging technology start-ups, has announced the launch of its new recruitment app. The app, which is available for both IOS and Android devices, marks the next stage in HIJOBS’ remarkable rise to become one of the leading providers of recruitment solutions in Scotland.
Founders Christopher Snelgrove and Laura Saunders are justifiably proud of their achievements so far. Says Christopher: “Our new app was just the logical next step in our quest to provide candidates and recruiters with the best technological solution to either finding a job or finding the perfect candidate.”
Laura adds: “We don’t think anyone in the recruitment markets can come close to our technology. It is simple, intuitive and delivers results. The development of the app had to match the ease of use of our website and seamlessly integrate with social media. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved.”
Founded in Lochaber in 2015, HIJOBS specialises in matching candidates and recruiters in Scotland’s more rural locations. Christopher is passionate about helping people find jobs outside the central belt. He says: “I live in Lochaber and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. We developed our technology to allow people to search for vacancies in the smallest towns and villages in Scotland. The gradual roll-out of 4G in places like Oban and Fort William means that the time is now right to give people a really smart, easy-to-use app.”
As well as investing in the app, the company has also undertaken a significant digital marketing campaign that sees HIJOBS appear high up on the first page of Google’s rankings, outperforming most of the big national brands. Traffic to its site is growing exponentially and candidates registering on the site will soon pass 50,000. Laura says: “2017, by whatever measure you choose, has been an exceptional year so far. The app launch is the cherry on the cake. We want people to have the choice of working in any part of Scotland they choose, not be forced to move to one of the big cities. Our app has just helped make that choice a whole lot easier.”
HIJOBS app is available to download for free in the app store or via Google Play. Visit the HIJOBS website at hijobs.net
