Paddy Powers recruitment web site called ‘WorkWithPaddy.com’ is an example of a great employers recruitment mini web site.
It looks nice
It is very easy to read
It showcases the Paddy Powers careers, the people, the locations,.. the company.
There is even a link to the Facebook Group – that currently has 249 members, so a bit of Social Recruiting included in the mix as well.
All in all, … probably the best employers recruitment site in Ireland?
(the sentence above inspired by Carlsberg advertising)
One thing that does not really look and work well is the integration with the candidate manager that shows during the job application process. Bringing the third party screen in the (iframe) window is always a bit risky, since the owners of the site have no control over it. But even that didn’t manage to ruin the good impression the Paddy Power recruitment web site leaves you with!
788 Employers are currently recruiting on Irish Jobs web site. Quit a few of them have a long list of jobs as well. From the employers list of 788 companies the majority has a few or more jobs advertised. The calculation shows quite simple that thousands of jobs are available in Ireland today.
Is it a Celtic Tiger all over again? It certainly does not feel so, with even the property prices ‘frozen’ for more than a year now. The unemployment rate is as low as it can be, so if there are thousands of vacancies in Ireland today it is clearly the serious shortage of workers currently in the country. How will that impact the Irish economy? Would we benefit from the increase of the import of “Brain Power”?
