DemolitionNews seeks to simplify recruitment process.
As part of its ongoing commitment to providing the demolition industry with the information and the tools it needs, DemolitionNews has unveiled DemolitionCareers.co.uk. Developed to replace Demolition-Jobs.co.uk and produced in partnership with our publishing partners Chambers Media, the new website is designed to make finding and attracting new staff as simple and as painless as possible.
“We were advised to close Demolition-Jobs.co.uk because certain parts of it did not fully comply with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that came into force in May. But the demand from workers seeking employment and demolition companies seeking workers continued unabated,” says DemolitionNews’ Mark Anthony. “So we have been working behind the scenes to update the system and to produce a dedicated recruitment website that meets the needs and the regulations of today.”
That new site has just gone live in “beta” format while new jobs are added and while demolition workers register their interest in a possible change of career or employer.
“Demolition-Jobs.co.uk was unique in the recruitment sphere in that it allowed workers to register their availability to work and their desire to possibly change position or company. We were keen to retain that facility while providing demolition companies with a website that allows them to advertise vacant positions quickly and seamlessly as they arise,” explains Chambers Media founder Ben Chambers. “Our web design team took all that into consideration during the design of the new website, while our recruitment advertising team contributed their expertise and experience to ensure that the new site worked out of the box and that it was easy to navigate for employers and employees alike.”
The timing of the launch of DemolitionCareers.co.uk really could not be better. The UK demolition industry finds itself in the midst of an ongoing skills shortage; protracted Brexit negotiations look likely to hinder the UK’s ability to attract migrant workers from outside its own borders; and the resulting economic uncertainty means that many more workers might be looking to switch jobs or employers.
“The prosperity of the demolition industry rests upon its ability to attract, train and retain high-calibre and experienced staff capable of carrying out demolition works,” Mark Anthony concludes. “As the demolition industry’s key information resource, it is our duty to help them do that. That is why DemolitionCareers.co.uk is such an important addition to our demolition portfolio.”
To underline that commitment to the industry, Chambers Media has set in place a dedicated recruitment sales team that is standing by ready to help demolition companies place their recruitment advertising. Furthermore, the company is offering significant bulk discounts for any demolition companies that might wish to advertise multiple times in the coming months. And finally, the website remains free to demolition workers looking to advertise their availability to work.
“We know from our experience with Demolition-Jobs.co.uk that the demolition business is fast-paced and dynamic and that its staffing needs are constantly shifting,” concludes Ben Chambers. “By allowing demolition workers to sign up for job alerts for free, we are allowing them to hear about job opportunities first while creating an online community of experienced demolition workers that contractors can call upon when and where they need them.”
To place a recruitment advertisement, demolition contractors can email . Demolition workers can sign up for free job alerts by visiting DemolitionCareers.co.uk.
