Morecambe, United Kingdom, November 21, 2005 --(PR.com
)-- ‘Just Technical Jobs’, the UK’s first technical jobs newspaper, is to be launched at the National Engineering and Construction Recruitment Exhibition, on 25–26 November 2005, at the NEC in Birmingham. All advertising space within the publication was sold within twenty-four hours to leading recruiters including Reed, Volt Europe, NES, Spring and Fusion People.
Published by Big Spark and JobsGroup.net, the award-winning online recruitment network, ‘Just Technical Jobs’ will provide jobseekers within the engineering, rail and construction sectors with the latest jobs, news and opinion each month. Copies are being distributed to an opt-in mailing list of more than 25,000 active jobseekers and via hundreds of collection points within the UK's foremost technical firms, trade unions and institutions.
Mark Hepworth, Managing Director of JobsGroup.net, comments, “Now might seem like a strange time to launch a specialist jobs newspaper when traditional media owners are going in the opposite direction and launching or buying job websites. We always like to buck the trend, however, and our strategy for doing so is clear.
We already reach more technical jobseekers through our award-winning network of sites, which includes JustEngineers.net, JustConstruction.net and JustRail.net, than anyone else. Just Technical Jobs extends our footprint still further to encompass jobseekers that do not presently use the internet, providing our clients with even more opportunities to reach this highly desirable target audience.”
Craig Bines, Sales and Marketing Manager, comments, “When we announced the launch we encountered scepticism from a few of our industry peers, just as we did before we launched our niche sites when the trend was for generalist. The fact that we sold all available advertising space within twenty-four hours, and that more than 25,000 active jobseekers have already requested a copy, should silence any doubts. By this January we plan to have increased the circulation to 45,000 copies, whilst continuing to grow our online portfolio, so that clients looking for an outstanding return on investment need look in only one place when recruiting.”
