LONDON, UK – July 17, 2007 – Indeed announced today the launch of Indeed.co.uk, its search engine for UK jobs. In one simple search, Indeed.co.uk gives UK job seekers free access to hundreds of thousands of opportunities from hundreds of websites. Launched in the United States in November 2004, Indeed is the leading search engine for jobs, attracting 3.5 million job seekers each month. Indeed.co.uk uses the same technology to provide the most comprehensive, relevant and fresh job search site in the UK including all the job listings from hundreds of websites, major job boards, top newspapers, leading associations and company career pages.
In contrast to job boards that only display jobs from their clients, Indeed.co.uk puts job seekers first by allowing them to search jobs from hundreds of websites simultaneously. With more than 100,000 new jobs every week, Indeed.co.uk has more fresh jobs than any other UK jobs website, including every conceivable type of job, from skilled to unskilled, full-time to part-time and every level of pay.
“We’re really excited to be able to use our experience gained in building the leading US job search engine to help job seekers in the UK find jobs they otherwise would not have found,” said Paul Forster, CEO of Indeed. “Indeed.co.uk is incredibly simple to use and is designed with the benefit of years of tracking job seekers’ online behaviour. Our search algorithms ensure that job seekers are returned the freshest, most relevant jobs from any search.”
With the familiar look and feel of general search engines, Indeed.co.uk makes it easy for job seekers to drill down by keyword and location to jobs that fit their requirements precisely. Advanced search options are also available, such as searching on a particular company name, a job title, or specifying a maximum commuting distance. Job searches can be saved as email alerts or RSS feeds, enabling users to track their searches continuously.
More people find jobs on Indeed than anywhere else. Indeed is the #1 job site in the world and allows job seekers to search millions of jobs on the web or mobile in over 50 countries and 28 languages. More than 180 million people each month search for jobs, post resumes, and research companies on Indeed, and Indeed is the #1 source of external hires for thousands of companies (sources: SilkRoad & iCIMS).
