‘It’s great that we’re again recognised as the best job search engine in the UK. The fantastic Hitwise accolade award is great to receive. What’s really gratifying though, is to have helped 4 of the top 7 commercial Job Boards in the UK achieve Top 10 status too. 1Job is a great source of candidates to the jobs on their sites and we’re pleased to help them do the best for their job advertisers.

‘In 2008, sent over 12 million candidate click-thrus to Job Boards and Recruitment Agency sites. Our “Google, but for jobs service” helps candidates go directly to the vacancies they’re looking for in the UK’s internet job advertising space. Our clients receive high quantities of great relevant candidate applications and CV registrations.

‘2009 is going to be an important year for Job Boards and Agencies. Those that can exceed their clients expectations will be the winners. Our service helps them to do that by getting candidates to the right jobs faster.

‘We charge on a low cost performance pay-per-click basis and our vertical jobs search engine gives our clients far better results at lower costs than any other job, or generic search engine in the UK.’
