The first company in the UK to offer a ‘Big Data’ solution to recruitment saw the demand for its services soar during 2013.
Knowlsey based JobsTheWord enjoyed a tripling of sales over the year with December recording the firm’s best month ever.
Co-founder, Lee Harding, explained: “We have developed a bespoke platform, which uses complex algorithms to extract intelligence from online profiles, blogs and websites.”
“This means we are able to reach potential candidates using this Big Data, on behalf of companies, and inform them of opportunities they may never have otherwise known about.”
The boost to the business meant the firm needed to expand its workforce during the year, recruiting an extra six staff, along with a move to larger premises based on Stanley Grange Business Park.
Technical Director and fellow co-founder, Will Crandle, commented: “We are very happy with what we have achieved so far, but we’re not standing still and excited about the plans for the next quarter. Our use of Big Data has opened up so many opportunities never seen before in the recruitment industry, which we will continue to leverage on behalf of our clients.”
Big Data recruitment via JobsTheWord is a new way for companies to find staff. It is a speedy alternative to job boards and a more cost effective alternative to recruitment agencies. One of the new ways it finds high quality talent is by sourcing passive candidates, those people who may not be actively seeking new positions in the job market.
