Exec-Appointments has been nominated in the Best Job Board category at the 2008 Recruiter Awards for Excellence. Exec-Appointments, which was acquired by the Financial Times in November 2007, recently achieved 200,000 registered executives on its website. It also has over 10,000 MBAs who are members of MBA-Direct.com. Exec-Appointments has a strong brand, recognised internationally by both clients and candidates alike.
Exec-Appointments which focuses on high-earning executive jobs, has a major presence in online recruitment. It has a successful core product – which focuses on senior management jobs and boasts the highest proportion of C-suite, director and senior manager visitors and highest average income visitors to any UK online job site – and two specialist products targeting MBAs and Non-Executive Directors.
Betty Thayer, Chief Executive of Exec-Appointments said, “I am delighted that Exec-Appointments has been short listed for these awards, recognition of a highly successful year for the company.”
The nomination comes less than six months after the company was bought by the Financial Times. The change in ownership has increased the exposure of Exec-Appointments vacancies, with the job board gaining direct access to the FT.com network where jobs are listed next to articles and analysis on the Financial Times website.
