Service Will Help Achieve an Even More Targeted Approach to Recruitment

LONDON, March 16, 2011 -, one of the UK's leading recruitment
( websites, today launches a new feature
enabling jobseekers to find the nearest transport links to jobs advertised on
the website.

The new transport links feature will appear within the popular
'map view' of jobs - a service launched in 2010, and will allow jobseekers to
see all mainline train, underground, DLR and tram stops within a mile of jobs
posted with a full postcode. Bus routes will be added in the near future.

The three closest stations or stops are displayed for each
type of transport; however the user is able to select an individual transport
type to view the full list.

Caterina Masso, senior marketing manager, ( says: "Our research shows that the location of a
job is one of the single most important factors for jobseekers so this new
facility will enable users to quickly pin point how easy it would be to reach
their prospective new employer for an interview, and day to day should they
be successful in getting the job."

Additionally Masso believes this will help recruiters find relevant
candidates: "Transport links only appear when a recruiter posts a job with a
full postcode in the details. So not only will jobseekers be sure of where
the job is, but also how to get there. We anticipate that for these
recruiters, will be able to deliver even better matching of
candidates to jobs."

Adding transport links is part of a wider development of
products and services across parent company Totaljobs Group. The feature is
also being rolled out on to its other websites,,, and
