Six Figures Winner of the Best Industry Job Board Award
Six Figures has carved out a place for itself as Australia’s best industry job board. Six Figures was announced as the winner at this month’s 2009 Recruitment Excellence Awards, conducted by Recruitment Extra.
Kelly Magowan, CEO and Co-founder of Six Figures said that “we are delighted the site has been acknowledged by the market for the value it delivers to both advertisers and job seekers. We set out to evolve the job site model by offering a high quality service to discerning advertisers and high income earners wanting more than a transactional and hit and miss experience. Our members are amazingly talented and our advertisers are enjoying being able to access this untapped resource of Australia’s best passive talent.”
While the past 18 months has been challenging for those in the employment advertising and recruitment space, and perhaps considered by some not the best time to launch a job site, Six Figures jumped in and defied the odds to create a winning formula. Through listening to the needs of the market they have created a jo site that delivers quality outcomes for both advertisers and high income job seekers alike. Six Figures’ 300+ advertisers from Ernst & Young, ING, through to Oracle, CSIRO and Hudson are keen to connect with passive job seekers at the senior levels enjoy tapping into the high quality of candidates that Six Figures delivers. Similarly Six Figures’ 30,000 high income earners find the site offers them relevant jobs and a professional service that saves them time with top jobs being emailed directly and/or via the weekly member newsletter.
The success of Six Figures can be attributed to its business model that differs from other job sites, with eligible job seekers becoming a member of the site where they can access a vast array of job and career related resources, guides and support. Magowan says that “today’s job seekers are savvy and empowered and are more like consumers, with Six Figures working hard to meet their needs”. More recently they have introduced a Directorships area with more member services and benefits continually being introduced to assist job seekers in their careers.
Niche job sites have been incredibly successful in the UK and USA for many years offering a better return on investment than the generalist job site. Furthermore they are also gaining traction in the Australian job market with advertisers appreciating these targeted job sites deliver high quality passive candidates that cannot always be found on the generalist sites. This is reinforced by the Recruitment Excellence Awards offering an award category in this area and acknowledging the value that niche job sites like Six Figures provides to advertisers and job seekers alike.
