The addition of these new industry sectors and job categories to our job search functionality will be a big improvement to our users overall experience as it will mean better website navigation and ease of use.

The GreenJobs website caters for candidates and organisations in the following core industry sectors – conservation jobs, environmental jobs, green jobs, renewable energy jobs, solar jobs, waste jobs, water jobs and wind jobs. To improve the specific job search requirements of our registered users, 22 new specialist industry sectors and 26 new specialist job categories have been added to the GreenJobs website.

The decision to expand the number of job sectors that we cover was due to feedback from candidates, clients and the changing landscape of the various industry sectors that we cover. Over the last 6 months, we have seen an increasing amount of candidates using keyword search terms such as countryside jobs, ecology jobs, green deal jobs, horticulture jobs, marine jobs, recycling jobs, smart meter jobs and waste-to-energy jobs. The popularity of these keyword searches on the GreenJobs website has meant that we have given these industry sectors and job categories specific and exclusive sections on our website.

From the candidates' perspective, the addition of these new industry sectors and new job categories to the job search system will mean that they can find relevant vacancies in a quicker and easier manner. Also, as these sectors will be incorporated into our “Smartsearch” technology, candidates will be able to receive automatic recommendations on other suitable positions when they register for our job alerts by email service. The new industry sectors and job categories will be fully integrated into the candidate management system that all candidates can use free of charge to assist with their career development. The functionality of the candidate management system includes being able to track all job applications, develop a wish list of desired jobs and save previous job searches.

From a recruiters' point of vie, the addition of these new industry sectors and job categories will make it more effective for them to promote their job opportunities to both passive and active jobseekers via the improved job search functionality and the job alerts by email service. These new industry sectors and job categories will be integrated into the GreenJobs recruiter management system as well as job posting distribution services such as Broadbean, Idibu and Logic Melon. Furthermore, in order to give recruiters a wider potential audience for their job postings, these job categories will be searchable via our talent finder network which is a partnership that we have developed with some of the most popular and best known generalist job boards. This talent finder network means that when a job is posted on the GreenJobs website it will also automatically be posted onto a number of other job boards and social media platforms including Businessgreenjobs, Facebook, Indeed, Linkedin, Mitula, Workhound, Trovit and Twitter.

Jonathan Kyle (Director of Strategy): "We are always considering new ways and methods to improve the experience that we provide to the clients and candidates that use our website. Fundamental to any changes that we make to our website is feedback from these stakeholders and the detailed research that we carry out in the various industry sectors that we cater for. The addition of these new industry sectors and job categories to our job search functionality will be a big improvement to our users overall experience as it will mean better website navigation and ease of use. It will also ensure a better match between job seekers and the organisations looking to hire candidates with the exact skills and qualifications that they need. From the GreenJobs perspective it will give us a great opportunity to increase our market share in the various specialist markets that we operate while attracting more suitably experienced candidates for our clients and promoting more relevant job opportunities to our candidates."
