This investment will enable us to accelerate our growth across all sectors and develop new services for both jobseekers and recruiters
Cambridge, UK (PRWEB) June 9, 2006 –-
Web development jobsite Workcircle announces a strategic investment by DC Thomson & Co Ltd, the Dundee publishing group.
DC Thomson's jobsite investment will enable the UK job search engine to expand its suite of recruiter services. Workcircle has already announced an extension to its free trial for UK recruitment agencies, giving them unlimited job posting and CV searching through the summer.
"We're very happy to be partnering with a forward-thinking company like DC Thomson", said Simon Appleton, CEO of Workcircle, "This investment will enable us to accelerate our growth across all sectors and develop new services for both jobseekers and recruiters".
Workcircle's underlying technology is a unique tag-based classifieds search engine that can power many sites across multiple sectors. "Recruitment is what we've done before", says Appleton, "but we're looking at other classified sectors where our technology can make a difference. There are few businesses doing it right in any sector".
DC Thomson's David Thomson agrees, "Online classified is an area the publishing industry has a keen eye on, and we're very pleased to be able to back a team with successful experience and a new approach."
