Ireland’s first radio channel targeting job seekers on the move and the Irish diaspora via weekly shows has launched today. NewJobRadio.com is also Ireland’s first radio channel to be listed on iTunes.
NewJobRadio.com focuses on job vacancies and each show will aim to feature employers discussing the roles they have available and to provide a detailed insight on the types of candidates they are looking for.
Verify Recruitment is the brain behind NewJobRadio.com. Listeners can hear the shows online or download them via iTunes to their MP3 players. The first show is live now on iTunes and on NewJobRadio.com. A new show goes live weekly.
Paddy Power is the latest featured employer, discussing some of the current technology jobs available at its new Dublin campus in Clonskeagh.
Also available now is a preview show, in which Verify Recruitment managing director Cathal Grogan outlines his reason for setting up New Job Radio.
"New Job Radio is all about capturing those conversations that take place between our industry experts and companies that are hiring, in order to give a much fuller understanding of the role to job seekers, rather than just what is outlined in the job specifications," said Grogan.
"We will notify candidates of job specifications before each show and ask them to post their questions for employers on Facebook and Twitter.”
Coming up over the next few weeks are vacancies in areas such as PR and event management at the Scoop Foundation, and IT roles at Lighthouse BCS, an expanding Irish ICT company.
