London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 12, 2009 -- Specialist UK online recruitment site Creativepool is launching a new version of its website on Wednesday 11th March. The new site will allow its 46,000 registered design professionals to post their showreels online as part of their jobseeking profile. Along with other major site improvements, this online showreel feature represents a significant advance in helping design candidates match their skills with the specific job requirements of the 3,500 creative businesses already registered on Creativepool, faster than ever before. Creativepoolâs new website can be viewed at http://www.creativepool.co.uk.
Launched in 2005, Creativepool launched the use of online portfolios to help design, advertising and new media candidates showcase their work to prospective employers via the Internet. Following the success of the online portfolio concept, the introduction of the online showreel facility is a logical expansion of this vision to cater for the increasing number of digital creatives who want to showcase the TV ads and viral videos theyâve worked.
Michael Tomes, Director of Creativepool, says: âI come from a design and advertising background and I know that the biggest single issue for any company seeking new creative staff is the quality of prospective candidatesâ work. Candidates live and die by what pieces of work they have in their offline portfolios and spend hours perfecting them. What we are able to do now is give our creative candidates the opportunity to really sell every aspect of their talent and experience â including their audiovisual achievements â via our online portfolio and showreel facility. For employers seeking creatives, itâs going to really speed up the recruitment process â saving them time and money by allowing them to make much more informed judgements at their desktop.â
