jobandtalent is the first application created to ensure that candidates never miss another job opportunity
Too many people stay in jobs they don’t love simply because they lack the time needed to job search. Using our highly accurate matching technology jobandtalent ensures that candidates are aware of all the job opportunities out there for them. When a match between a candidate and job opening is identified a message is automatically sent to the candidate to notify them about the vacancy.
Additionally, by connecting with Facebook candidates can find 1st and 2nd degree connections working at a company where they might apply. This way candidates can easily gain access to inside information about the recruitment process and even obtain referrals.
jobandtalent has emerged as an international recruitment platform of choice for over 200 leading European and global companies
Since launching in 2009 jobandtalent founders Felipe Navio, 29, and Juan Urdiales, 32, have been testing different approaches within the recruitment industry. In 2012 jobandtalent introduced a unique job matching technology coinciding with the company’s launch in the UK. Today, jobandtalent has 20 employees working between the company headquarters in London and Madrid. jobandtalent has over 500,000 registered users and sources candidates for global companies including Accenture, Morgan Stanley, Ericsson, Booking, L'Oréal, and Deloitte.
jobandtalent offers employers a smarter and more efficient way to connect with the most hard to reach talent on the market. Our matching algorithm automatically seeks out passive candidates (professionals who are open to new career possibilities but not actively seeking) by identifying relative users who have previously registered their details on the site. Unlike simply posting a job or performing laborious CV searches, jobandtalent has created an easier way for employers and top quality candidates to find each other.
Job seekers from diverse professional and experience levels use jobandtalent to find out about new career opportunities. The most popular professional areas on the site are IT, finance, marketing and administration with over 300,000 available career opportunities across Europe and North America.
At the heart of jobandtalent is an innovative algorithm formulated in collaboration with HR and big data experts and PhDs from the IULA (Research Institute for Applied Linguistics) of Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona.
The algorithm which behaves like a virtual recruitment consultant – identifying and recognizing linguistic patterns within the structure and phrasing of both job adverts and CVs. These patterns are then converted into data points that match candidates with suitable job opportunities, even if they do not match a candidate’s or recruiter’s specifications word for word.
This algorithm, which is under continuous development, allows jobandtalent to analyse hundreds of thousands of jobs from different recruitment boards and sites, suggesting suitable vacancies within a client’s field
