The Recruitment Project adds new line

The Recruitment Project, a new on-line recruitment service launched in Aberdeen less than two months ago to service the subsea and offshore industry, has proved to be so successful that it has added a ninth discipline to its suite of specialist recruitment lines.


The company initially launched a service for eight key categories in the offshore, marine and subsea industries which experience the most acute job shortages and hardest to fill vacancies – subsea; subsea engineers; subsea inspection; ROV; crane operators; Dpo; American Dpo; Offshore renewable. However increasing demand means that it has now added a ninth division – marine recruitment.


Andrew Gibbon (20), Online Project Manager who developed The Recruitment Project site, said: “It was always our intention to add new service lines in response to demand, however we have seen such rapid growth that this happened only weeks after we first launched.


“Since we started we have seen a user base growth of between 30 and 40% week on week and we expect this to continue. One of the things our monitoring has shown us is that jobs posted on our site were getting almost 40% more views over a 48-hour period than our competitors, so I think clients and job seekers are finding that our very focussed approach is really benefiting them by providing faster and more efficient results.”


The Recruitment Project was set up in response to the ongoing skills crisis in the energy sector and focusses on a targeted approach which better matches candidates with vacancies by providing a discipline-specific, niche service rather than the more common mass market concept. Under the banner of recruiters and job seekers are directed to individual areas tailored exclusively to the relevant job discipline.


“When we started we wanted to prove that we were efficient and reliable but we also wanted to demonstrate that we were different and had a new approach,” said Andrew. “Our website has a modern, funky look which is more in keeping with today’s generation so while it is focussed, it’s fun too and that approach certainly seems to be going down well with recruiters and job seekers.”
