Job search engine Adzuna has expanded its global operations into four markets with the firm launching publicly in Brazil, South Africa, Australia and Canada this week. The company searches the internet for job vacancies, offering visitors a broad selection of jobs on its site.
With over 1.5 million monthly visitors, the London-based startup has gained significant traction in the UK with its social job hunting tools, real time labour market data and powerful search. Adzuna now aims to take its technology and free, open data to the international market.
The company boasts over 1 million live job vacancies across its site, having recently established a foreign website in Germany.
Adzuna, known as the firm behind UK Prime Minister, David Cameron’s iPad app, is offering to build free data dashboard apps for the new markets, in an effort to help governments across the globe with better decision making around the economy. The dashboards will include local vacancy counts, average salaries, unemployment data and regional hiring patterns.
Co-founder of Adzuna, Andrew Hunter, said: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of these new sites and we’re excited to build on our UK success. We believe jobseekers in these countries are underserved by the tools currently available in the market. Our aim is to arm job seekers around the world with all the information they need to find their perfect job.”
Adzuna was founded in 2011 and is backed by venture capital firms Passion Capital, The Accelerator Group and Index Ventures.
