Condé Nast has teamed up with talent attraction platform Jobbio to launch WIRED Hired, an exciting new careers marketplace.
The partnership will combine Jobbio’s technology and WIRED’s valuable audience to bring the best opportunities to the most sought after talent.
Greg Williams, Editor of WIRED UK says the partnership can have a positive impact on the current UK skills shortage, which is one of the biggest challenges faced by the tech industry today.
“Our dynamic, ambitious readers are interested in shaping the world and put a high value on how they can progress in their careers. If you have a fast-growth business, WIRED Hired is a great way to reach top global talent. If you’re a reader looking for the next step in your career, we can connect you to some of the most ambitious companies in the world,” he said.
There are 6,000 companies currently hiring on Jobbio including Slack, Airbnb and Ryanair with over 1 million talent users registered with the site. WIRED Magazine in the UK attracts 3.1 million users to its site every month and boasts an engaged social following of more than 610k followers.
Jobbio CEO, Stephen Quinn, says the partnership offers a unique opportunity for companies to promote their employer brand to quality talent in a meaningful way.
“For a long time we’ve seen the potential for publishers to develop a lucrative jobs business through our technology and for our clients to reach new and important talent through their audiences. That potential is now a reality with powerful media brands seeing the monetary value and joining our partner network. We’re really excited to be able to bring WIRED’s amazing readership to the table,” he added.
Condé Nast is the latest in a number of Jobbio’s media partners which include IDG in the UK, Independent News and Media in Ireland, BetaKit in Canada and VentureBeat in the US.
Companies who want to advertise their roles can visit WIRED Hired and post their jobs, while talent can search and apply for the most relevant opportunities from the comfort of their favourite publication.
