Simply Hired Launches Site for the United Kingdom

Today, Simply Hired launches an international job search website for the United Kingdom (www.SimplyHired.co.uk). The site will include over one million job listings aggregated from the leading job boards, content websites, newspapers, organizations and company career pages throughout the country. Simply Hired continues to be a comprehensive job search engine with over seven million jobs worldwide and counting.

“The launch of the UK website is an integral part of Simply Hired’s effort to expand our mission in building the largest worldwide job search engine,” states Gautam Godhwani, Co-founder and CEO of Simply Hired. “We want to continue making the job search process a positive experience globally and leverage the successful business model we have built in the U.S.”

Simply Hired is a vertical job search engine that aggregates and indexes millions of job listings from around the Web. Pulling from hundreds of sources, Simply Hired offers job seekers a “one-stop shop” for their job search. Job seekers simply type in a keyword and location, and Simply Hired returns relevant job postings, so users avoid conducting multiple searches on various sites.

The SimplyHired.co.uk site also incorporates a number of advanced features to make finding a job a more enjoyable experience. Job seekers can utilize the browse tool to view jobs from specific occupational categories or filter their results by location, job type, education and experience. Job seekers also have the option to perform an advanced search to return job listings that match specific criteria and have the ability to view only the jobs added since their last visit.

“Simply Hired not only wants to provide consumers with a tool to simplify their job search, but can benefit employers and publishers as well,” says Sachin Shah, Director of Product Management. “As we expand globally, we intend to create solutions that will continue to benefit the whole Internet recruitment industry.”

For recruiters and direct employers, Simply Hired offers the ability to add their jobs into the UK site through a job feed. They can also advertise their employment brand via premium display ads that appear on relevant search result pages. To express interest in including jobs, visit SimplyHired.co.uk and click the “Add Jobs” link at the bottom of the page.

For the publisher community such as job boards, bloggers and content sites, Simply Hired can provide additional, relevant job listings to supplement existing content. By including job listings on their sites, publishers can improve their visitor engagement and increase traffic. Simply Hired currently powers the international job channel for MySpace UK, and supplements LinkedIn’s job board with millions of job listings from Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, India, France, Germany and Spain.
