Bidorbuy is adding to its South African presence with the acquisition of online jobs portal jobs.co.za, one of the oldest jobs sites in the country.
Gillian Meier, newly-appointed CEO of jobs.co.za, says: “Under the new ownership, the recent silence of jobs.co.za is going to be stirred by significant expansion and enhancements to the website. We are committed to aligning this jobs portal to meeting the growing demands of the South African jobs market."
As broadband penetration increases so too will the market share and potential for online jobs sites, however jobs.co.za is determined to provide a solution that is flexible and affordable to those South African recruiters that are still heavily reliant on dial-up or slow bandwidth connections, and will further provide pioneering technology that will be highly competitive in the local and international recruitment market.
Meier says: “We believe that the SME recruitment market can become more competitive and profitable if these recruiters have access to alternative affordable services that can aid them in overcoming the challenges that they face in the form of limited affordable online recruitment services, costly print advertising and slow Internet connectivity."
bidorbuy.com Inc. purchased the company for an undisclosed sum of money with the aim of boosting the online jobs market share and attracting a wider group of advertisers and job seekers in an innovative and competitive manner.
