LONDON, March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Totaljobs.com, one of the UK's leading recruitment websites, today launches a new feature enabling jobseekers to find the nearest transport links to jobs advertised on the website.
The new transport links feature will appear within the popular 'map view' of jobs – a service launched in 2010, and will allow jobseekers to see all mainline train, underground, DLR and tram stops within a mile of jobs posted with a full postcode. Bus routes will be added in the near future.
The three closest stations or stops are displayed for each type of transport; however the user is able to select an individual transport type to view the full list.
Caterina Masso, senior marketing manager, totaljobs.com says: "Our research shows that the location of a job is one of the single most important factors for jobseekers so this new facility will enable users to quickly pin point how easy it would be to reach their prospective new employer for an interview, and day to day should they be successful in getting the job."
Additionally Masso believes this will help recruiters find relevant candidates: "Transport links only appear when a recruiter posts a job with a full postcode in the details. So not only will jobseekers be sure of where the job is, but also how to get there. We anticipate that for these recruiters, totaljobs.com will be able to deliver even better matching of candidates to jobs."
Adding transport links is part of a wider development of products and services across parent company Totaljobs Group. The feature is also being rolled out on to its other websites caterer.com, careerstructure.com, cwjobs.co.uk, retailchoice.com and salestarget.co.uk.
Totaljobs.com is one of the UK's leading jobs websites, attracting over 3.75 million jobseekers every month on the hunt for one of 125,000 vacancies the site carries over the course of month. All of this activity generates over 2 million applications a month, cementing Totaljobs.com's strong reputation among recruiters and jobseekers alike. Thousands of recruiters from multinationals to smaller regionally based businesses, recruitment consultants and advertising agencies recruit through totaljobs.com.
