Timperley, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 18, 2013 -- EmptyLemon; The UKs biggest Direct Employer Job Board is seeing the benefits of its forward-thinking approach to finding the best opportunities to suit its growing base of candidates.
During January, the company's strategy of signing up employers to get direct access to a strong and keen pool of would-be workers paid dividends, as records were broken for the number of visitors to its website, direct employer jobs available pages, and applications for each vacancy on offer.
Year-on-year, the number of jobs advertised on the site grew by 42 per cent, far outstripping the rate in the growth of total new jobs over the same period.
And word is spreading of this growth, with the number of site visitors up by 64 per cent between October and January.
Among EmptyLemon's most prestigious clients, banking group Santander and business technology specialist Cobham - the company which invented the world's first mid-air fuelling system for aircraft - have both reported excellent responses to vacancies posted on EmptyLemon.co.uk.
"Current vacancies with these companies which we are advertising include, in the first instance, opportunities in London, Heathrow, Milton Keynes and Glasgow," said EmptyLemon's Sarah Jacob.
"On the manufacturing side, Cobham is trusting us to help it find the right people to fill vacancies in Hampshire, Hertfordshire and Leicestershire," she added.
Vacancies are regularly added to the company's job board, and EmptyLemon speeds up the task of linking suitable would-be employees and the employers who have posts available by letting candidates directly contact the person in charge of recruiting for any post in which they are interested.
"The internet should make finding and recruiting the most suitable people for any job more straightforward," said Ms Jacob.
"That's why EmptyLemon doesn't come between the candidates and employers, instead putting them directly in touch with each other, so that they can discuss exactly what's involved in a particular job.
"And it's why we as a company have been seeing the fantastic results we have, with applications per vacancy rising from 12.8 six months ago to 14.2 at the end of January."
The figures all prove it - the direct approach pays off for both employers and would-be employees. So to take the most direct route to filling a vacancy, or for finding a job that's the right fit, take a fresh approach, and use EmptyLemon.co.uk.
EmptyLemon has just celebrated its third birthday. It began by advertising IT jobs and data analyst jobs and went cross sector in September 2012. If you wish to advertise on their site, please visit http://www.emptylemon.co.uk for more information.
