Vacancycentre.com unveils fifth revamp
Recruiter Vacancycentre.com has unveiled its fifth revamp in 12 years under its continuing efforts to make job search and selection increasingly seamless.
Vacancycentre.com, which pioneered online recruitment in Malta when it was launched in 1999, is operated by CSB Group. The Swatar-based company has now entered its 25th year in the recruitment industry.
This latest project aimed to identify best practice in streamlining candidates’ search for opportunities in Malta and overseas. Mindful of heightened international job mobility within the local professional talent pool, Vacancycentre.com has increasingly sought to list the most attractive vacancies posted by associates across its international network.
But the sheer volume of content on the site meant it was imperative for listings to be better managed to ensure increased user accessibility.
“It was again time for a fresher look, both in terms of image and functionality,” group marketing executive Diane Borg Bascetta told The Times Business. “The site is now enabled for mobile and tablet, and it also allows for RSS feeds so that content is shared from Vacancycentre.com and others. The portal is easier and faster to navigate – the RSS feed means we can circulate the international posts better among our candidates.”
Vacancycentre.com is a member of The Network, an association of leading job boards. Its membership allows it to feature posts which come through this vast resource by country. The Network also gives the portal access to a vast, available pool of professionals from around the world.
At the other end of the spectrum, Vacancycentre.com now gives more space to employers who are able to advertise more than posts on the site, while engaging more effectively with Vacancycentre.com’s recruitment specialists.
A new library, featuring content like legal documents and articles, aims to make useful recruitment information and resources available to students, lawyers, and researchers.
Caren Portelli, head of recruitment and HR services, stressed job seekers will be able to scan listings on the site more efficiently by country, industry and keyword. New candidates may also register for the Jobmail service, a candidate-specific mailshot, alerting them to the best available posts in their selected industries by e-mail. More than 24,000 people are currently registered.
Although Vacancycentre.com has earned a solid reputation for its expertise in the i-gaming, financial services, accounting, and IT industries, opportunities abound across the board and are amply featured.
CSB’s chief executive Michael J. Zammit explains online recruitment has indisputably become the main resource for candidates and firms thanks to rapid web technology advancement.
“With this in mind, Vacancycentre.com also understands candidates’ demand for simpler, more flexible access to our job vacancy listings.
“Having enhanced its effectiveness as a job board – aside from the established success in recruitment solutions – Vacancycentre.com will continue to position itself among the jobsites of choice.”
Vacancycentre.com’s top executives, meanwhile, have returned from Cape Town where they shared best practice, knowledge and ideas with representatives of other job boards at a top industry event organised by The Network.
