Associated Northcliffe Digital, a division of the Daily Mail General Trust, has bought JobsGroup.net to boost its presence in the niche recruitment sector. AN Digital will retain the JobsGroup brand name but it will become part of jobsite.co.uk.
The group has ten websites across sectors such as engineering, construction and rail and has 200,000 registered jobseekers. It puts over 8,000 vacancies online every week.
AN Digital has acquired seven recruitment companies this year including cityjobs.com and top-consultant.com in addition to launching a further 15 sites.
Keith Potts, Jobsite.co.uk managing director, says: “We recognise that recruiters are increasingly using niche sites and generalist jobs boards for their online recruitment.”
