1Job.co.uk has confirmed that its UK and Ireland jobs dedicated vertical search engine sent over 500,000 click thrus per month to sites listed with it in the last quarter of 2005.

Julian Felstead, Sales Director of 1Job said “The site has grown rapidly and is continuing to prove an extremely popular resource with serious job hunters in the UK and Ireland. Many major and niche job boards successfully use the 1Job search engine to build their site visitor numbers and extend the reach of their advertising. Larger vacancy advertisers are now receiving over 40,000 job hunter click thrus direct to their adverts, jobs by email and registration pages. The feedback we are getting from them is really terrific”.

1Job claims to provide job hunters with the ability to fast search for all types of jobs throughout the UK and Ireland, and to enable them to locate a possible vacancy in less than one minute. Summary job details are displayed, and when the user sees vacancies that they like the look of, clicking on the title of the job takes them directly through to the recruiters own website. Homepage links are also provided. The site has been described by some of its users as being “like Google for jobs”.

Julian Felstead finished by saying “Reaching the half million job advert click thrus per month is a major milestone for us and we are now looking towards the one million which we hope will happen for us in the early part of next year”.
