The re-launched platform at will make placing a job on the UK's largest and fastest growing recruitment website even easier and allow those that take advantage to include employer branding to help make their ads stand out.

John Salt, Website Director at says of the services success:

"We are not surprised to have seen the growth we have with our self service option. With more employers, particularly from small businesses, questioning the cost effectiveness of classified print ads, we've set out to complement our account managed service, which is second to none, with something for those that needed a quick, simple and effective online option."

The re-launch now makes placing a recruitment ad on even easier, akin to shopping online.

All of this is underpinned by online support and help for those who are new to online recruitment.

John Salt continues: "Many small businesses don't recruit particularly often and when they do, they don't have a huge amount of budget nor a specialised team to manage the process. It is a task that has to be fitted alongside a thousand others and one that can have a fundamental impact on the dynamic of a small team. As a result, many don't need a managed account. Instead, they need something quick, cost effective but that is also going to be able to get them the candidates that they need. With this new platform, we believe we have improved still further on a service that helps to achieve all that."
