Free employment website
The world’s first completely free-to-use employment website has just been launched in the UK.
Staffbay.com delivers more relevant and rounded candidate information to potential employers than a traditional CV ever could, and also reduces recruitment costs to zero. Staffbay.com is an interactive fusion of online recruitment and social media. And with the innovative service being completely free-of-charge for both employers and candidates, creators Tony Wilmot and Elliot Kidd expect their latest venture to change the face of the job market.
Unlike the traditional method of posting a CV directly to employers or via a recruitment consultant, candidates on Staffbay.com build themselves a multi-media profile that is constantly searchable and viewable by potential employers.
The enhanced profiles can include audio-visual components as well as links to social media channels, offering organisations far more insight into whether a person will be a good cultural, as well as professional, fit for a vacant post. Co-founder Tony Wilmot believes that because a wider breadth of useful information is being made accessible without cost, the Staffbay.com concept will lead to a sea change in how recruitment is done.
