The Arran Banner - - Advertising -

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
