Sail-World.com : JOB2SEA - global matchmaking for the sailing industry
JOB2SEA - global matchmaking for the sailing industry

'JOB2SEA...if you love sailing enough to give up your day job and sail professionally'    .

Maybe you can't 'run away to sea', but if you love sailing and the sea so much that you would like to be involved in the industry, a new global website could channel you to a job in a faraway country. Or maybe you're already professionally involved in the industry and would value knowing what's going on in the global job scene, rather than merely your local one.

JOB2SEA, leading specialist maritime job board, is proud to announce the launch of their new and improved global maritime job board www.JOB2SEA.com. The new JOB2SEA site has been designed to help jobseekers find the best maritime jobs and recruiters the best candidates.

JOB2SEA has been developed to provide a comprehensive online recruitment resource for the global maritime industry. To meet the diverse needs of both seafarers and shipping companies JOB2SEA consulted many of the leading names in the maritime industry to provide the best possible online recruitment solution. This resulted in a highly intuitive job board with deep social media integration, enhanced jobseeker profiles and an extensive range of recruiter services.

In the first two months JOB2SEA had outstanding results with more than 3,160 applications, over 45,000 unique visits and 330,000 page views. The simple-to-use navigation system has user experience in mind by only displaying live jobs from leading recruiters across the maritime sector. Jobseekers can create email alerts at the click of a button, sending the latest jobs directly to their inbox. JOB2SEA also helps jobseekers on the move with a fully mobile-optimised site allowing seafarers to search and apply for jobs from any location on a mobile device.

Accessing the best talent is a challenge for any business and with this in mind, JOB2SEA has a range of options to attract and engage jobseekers. Recruiters can choose from a broad range of job advertising inventory such as premium, homepage, video and sponsored jobs. To help stand out further, recruiters can also be included in the Recruiter A-Z directory with video profiles.

Originally the project was started by the Danish Maritime Officers, but in 2009 it was decided to establish an independent company JOB2SEA. In 2010 it was decided to recruit one of the pioneers in maritime online marketing, Jakob le Fevre, to redesign the strategy. Mr. le Fevre’s vision was to resolve the vacuum in the market with a world-class job board featuring the largest range of maritime jobs globally. JOB2SEA is entirely free to use for jobseekers and companies can chose to operate on a case-by-case basis or set up a VIP Partnership.

Jakob le Fevre, Managing Director, JOB2SEA commented, 'The maritime business has had a tendency to focus on nationality in the past, but this is changing as we speak. Ship owners and other companies working in the maritime sector focus on qualifications and want the best possible crew for both their ships and offices.

Traditionally, the maritime job market has been fragmented and administered by hundreds of smaller platforms or magazines – normally focusing on one geographic destination. Job listings have been old-fashioned without any engaging functionality. At JOB2SEA we have learned from the general job market and have created a portal working in the same way as many other general portals. The important difference is JOB2SEA covers the entire global market and focuses 100 percent on the maritime industry.'

In such a competitive market it is imperative to maintain an exceptional level of service for both jobseekers and recruiters. This is made possible by partnering Madgex who are the leading provider of innovative job board software. JOB2SEA will continuously add new features and functionality to ensure superior levels of user experience helping to increase application rates.

JOB2SEA specialises in matching the right person to the right role and provides all the tools and functionality a jobseeker will need. To investigate more, go to http://www.job2sea.com/
