Sydney, Australia – September 23rd, 2013 Indeed, the world’s leading job site, today announced the opening of its first Australian office in Sydney amid strong job seeker demand for it’s unique job search platform.
Indeed is the largest search engine for jobs in Australia and the world. Unlike most Australian job sites which only show paid listings, Indeed brings together the most job listings from employer career sites, staffing agencies, job boards, and newspaper career pages. With a single search, job seekers can find and apply to jobs across Australia with a desktop, tablet, or smartphone. Indeed makes it easy for job seekers to create job alerts which notify them as soon as new jobs are posted meeting their unique criteria.
“Indeed became the world’s leading job site, with over 100 million unique visitors a month, by putting job seekers’ interests first and providing the best possible job search experience worldwide. Today’s announcement solidifies Indeed’s position as the best place in Australia for job seekers to find a job and for employers to find the right candidates. We are excited by our continued expansion in Australia,” said Rony Kahan, Co-Founder and CEO of Indeed.
While Indeed has operated in Australia for more than four years, it has significantly increased its investment in people and resources over the past six months, culminating in the opening of its offices today.
Mr. Kahan said Australia is one of the most attractive recruitment markets in the world with established local players but it is also one of the most dynamic.
Today’s Australian job seeker is seeing significant change in the Australian work market:
Over the past three months the strongest growth in job seeker demand by city was experienced in Perth. In fact Perth is now close to surpassing Adelaide in the rankings of cities that most Australian job seekers are looking for work in.
A 24 per cent increase in job titles with casual or part-time requirements in the past six months reflected the ‘casualisation’ of the Australian workforce trend.
Chris McDonald, senior director, Indeed Australia said, “Indeed also provides a very different experience for Australian employers who are used to the advertising-focused model of the leading job boards. Unlike traditional job boards, Indeed provides employers with a simple, pay-per-performance model, combined with a simple measurement system, to enable control and flexibility over budgets in a rapidly changing jobs market.”
Indeed launched in 2004 as the original search engine for jobs and is now available in more than 50 countries and 28 languages. Indeed attracts more than 100 million unique visitors per month and is the number one job site in a growing number of countries, including Canada, France, Italy, the Netherlands, the UK and the US and leads worldwide in mobile job search.
