Irreverent technology news site The Inquirer has entered the online IT recruitment arena by launching a dedicated jobs service tailored to its tech-savvy audience of nearly three million IT professionals.
The jobs site maintains The Inquirer's editorial tone in that the recruitment categories are entitled: Beer Money (contractor jobs), Jobs Worth Getting Out of Bed For (permanent direct jobs), Get Headhunted (a CV-upload tool) and Ping me a job (a job alert service).
"Earlier this year we ran a very successful survey of The Inquirer audience to ask them how we can improve the site and what new features and services they want," said Paul Briggs, publisher of The Inquirer.
"Over the next few months we will continue to add valuable services and harness the strong Inquirer community. Expect to see peer-to-peer initiatives and reader-generated content alongside job postings very soon."
The Inquirer is owned by media giant VNU (as in vnunet.com) which runs an extensive recruitment site, ComputingCareers.co.uk, from where jobs relevant to The Inquirer's audience will be chosen for display on INQjobs.co.uk.
The Inquirer boasts over two million unique users and on average 50 per cent of site visitors are repeat users, according to a July 2006 Webtrends report.
