Salisbury, Dorset (PRWEB) July 26, 2007
In 2005, over a quarter of British businesses were actively looking for new staff*, with Internet recruitment being one of the methods to find new recruits. In line with the technological advances in how employers look for new staff, an exciting new recruitment website has been launched this week, revolutionising the way people apply for and acquire jobs.
Headhuntme.co.uk is a free service where candidates create a profile that is visible to recruiters, but does not have any personal details or the name of their current employer being made available without their consent. Registering with Headhuntme.co.uk means candidates can upload their CV and select that they are actively looking for jobs, or say they are looking speculatively; the perfect opportunity to be head hunted without compromising their current job by publicly registering that they're looking.
What sets Headhuntme.co.uk apart from other recruitment websites is that candidates are automatically put forward for jobs using a unique system which matches key words and skills in candidates' CVs to relevant vacancies at the time. Candidates control every aspect of the selection process; from what elements of their CV is visible, to blocking companies seeing their profile, to agreeing when recruiters can view their personal details.
This allows candidates to manage the recruitment process in line with how actively they're looking for jobs. The candidate does not have to log in every day to check a 'job board', making it perfect for working professionals who do not want to be seen looking for jobs by their current employers.
Recruiters can view CVs using a 'credit' system where they are charged per CV they view, allowing the candidate to be contacted only when the recruiter is interested in their skills and experience. Candidates' personal information will not be shared until they have agreed that a particular recruiter can see them. Candidates can then check the assessment against jobs they're considered for and see why they were not successful for a job, thus allowing unsuccessful candidates to understand what may be holding them back in their career.
Chris Vass from Headhuntme.co.uk says; "The key to Headhuntme.co.uk is control. We have created a system at Headhuntme.co.uk that allows candidates to further their career without actively looking for a job. We have hundreds of companies and agencies looking for the perfect person to fit into their organisation and when they find that perfect match using the unique Headhuntme.co.uk system, this gives the candidate a level of leverage with salary and benefit negotiations. We believe that Headhuntme.co.uk will revolutionise the way people progress their career, giving the power back to them in the search for the perfect job."
