Job board launch helps businesses source seasonal staff
Holiday Staff, an online jobs board for seasonal staff and holiday job vacancies, has been launched to help businesses recruit seasonal and temporary staff.
Lucy Baker-Kind has designed an online platform, listing seasonal vacancies across the UK and internationally, through which advertisers receive applications direct from interested job seekers.
Holiday Staff is a simple, easy-to-use format, where businesses upload their own vacancy details, along with company profile and branding.
‘Seasonal work is undertaken traditionally by the young, including students, travellers and college leavers, and these job seekers are now all online, so we needed to entice them with an eye-catching and modern website, where interaction is recommended via a blog and active social media channels,’ says Lucy.
A free advertiser’s blog post and free targeted marketing ensures the vacancies are all promoted to relevant applicants, via newsletters, social media and specific contacts. Previous clients have commented on the high calibre and qualified candidates sourced on Holiday Staff.
Holiday Staff is a niche online jobs board, ensuring that web traffic is driven to the site by a need for seasonal staff or temporary holiday work.
Any business which uses seasonal staff will find this website invaluable, from hospitality venues, theme parks and amusement attractions, to holiday resorts, events organisers and food producers.
‘We can help everyone, from a family-run coffee shop which needs a single member of staff, to a large corporation which requires a workforce of 150 to keep it running smoothly. This could be an essential tool for helping businesses to thrive and survive,’ says Lucy.
Holiday Staff does not concentrate purely on summer trade – Christmas retail staff, winter ski season hosts and even Lapland elves have all been advertised on the website!
Lucy has a family background in tourism and saw first hand how difficult it was to advertise for seasonal staff: ‘Advertising for seasonal staff has often involved postcards in windows, local print adverts, or simply word of mouth. I wanted to make the process easier for both businesses and job seekers, the majority of which are online-proficient and tech-aware, and who want instant information and quick results.’
