Miningjobsearch.com - the new jobsite from leading specialists Oil & Gas Job Search - has attracted significant interest from the industry since launch.
Mining construction managers, civil engineers, drilling engineers, project manager roles and geologists across a worldwide client base are some of the first positions on offer via the site which went live just a few weeks ago.
The jobsite follows the successful established model – oilandgasjobsearch.com - which features over 460,000 CVs, 500,000 visits, four million job views and has over 12,000 jobs posted monthly by 1,200 active international clients.
Oil and Gas Job Search Managing director Duncan Freer is confident the approach can work just as well for the mining industry. “There is nothing like it in the mining sector in terms of speed, capability and scope and the encouraging early interest from clients backs that up.”
The jobsite uses phenomenally clever, quick, and easy to use software and the latest hardware. Free registration in just 20 seconds, and simple resume upload for candidates, plus mobile access – unique to the mining industry - and a good level of job posts already from major industry recruiters and direct clients bode well for the site.
Recruiters receive CV alerts as they upload, outstanding pre-filtering and highly relevant targeting of candidates via email campaigns.
Duncan Freer said the move into mining was a natural one for the business. “Our investment in software development has created one of the best user experiences around for job searchers and recruiters, so it makes sense now to explore what the model can do in new, larger sectors. We are delighted with the initial response from recruiters.
“Mining mirrors a lot of the job search and placement behaviours of the oil and gas sector, for example, it has plenty of international contract work and is vast in potential," he said.
Simon Winfield, Senior Regional Director, Hays Mining, in Australia, welcomed the move. “We have always been pleased with the results we have received from Oil & Gas Job Search so are excited to see them develop a solution for the mining sector.”
The company has also created a mobile version of the site to give candidates looking for new roles even easier access to information on the move with instant job listing, easy search and ‘apply now’ functionality.
Marketing Director John Roberts said: “More and more people are using mobile devices to hunt for jobs – this is a major focus for us this year.”
MD Duncan Freer added: "We expect to reach 5,000 jobs very quickly and build up candidate registrations from there."
