Well, just when you thought the season of the job boards is over, and there will not be new one every other week,… there is a new one!
The latest edition to the Irish recruitment industry is SixFigures!
Here is a little blurb about them from their own site:
SixFigures.ie is the members only job board aimed specifically at executives and high earners. Focused on jobs in Ireland, it displays only roles where the minimum basic salary on offer is at least €100,000.
Me thinks, finally a site where I can look for a job!
Free to members, SixFigures presents the executive job seeker, be they passive or active and employers with a new focused and confidential medium to access each other.
That is a strange one. Usually those highly paid job sites are charging candidates. Then again those are the US ones, and charging candidates is not that well looked upon from the low makers over here.
Here is what the owners of SixFigures say about themselves: The Recruitment Business (TRB) is one of Irelands’ longest established recruitment consultancies.
Interestingly enough their main site of the TRB.ie reads:
Registered Number: 152015
Registered Address: 24-26 City Quay, Dublin 2
The same legal requirement is not published on their SixFigures site. Just the phone and an email address. If they are trying to hide that a recruitment agency is owning a job site, you can be the judge of that yourself.
American marketing was always a bit specific. In some cases it just does not ‘cross the water’ well, and sounds a bit off on our shores here. In recruitment the example is the job site Hound.com. It is a Employers Only model job site, like Ireland has its own RealJobs.ie. It’s marketing is very original and different from the usual jobs sites. On Hound everything is about the hounds and the front page is full of dogs images. 13 dogs will welcome you on the Hound home page. Quite impressive for the jobs site, isn’t it?
This is Hound they think you should use them:
Hound shows its members jobs from every employer website it can find in the United States and throughout the world. It is the most powerful job-search engine in existence and powers several job boards. Recruiters use Hound to track down potential jobs for their clients.
Meaning: If there is a job, Hound will sniff it!
