Umbrella company employees and other independent professionals specialising in IT contracting have a new hi-tech resource at their disposal with the launch of the ContractRecruit web portal, a platform that helps IT contractors and recruiters to monitor availability for new assignments.
Launched by the East Sussex company bearing the same name, the new ContractRecruit portal features impressive cutting-edge innovations such as ContractMap, which allows contractors to identify and highlight exactly what locations they are available to work in, and Countdown Timer, which lets recruiters keep track of top contracting talent by literally watching a digital countdown of when their current contract is due to finish. This is not all: the platform also boasts a ContractDiary feature that enables contractors to create a continually updatable online portfolio of project work undertaken, locations worked and contact details.
ContractRecruit has invested heavily in developing this unique web portal and is aiming to ensure that, with its repertoire of highly interactive functionality, the platform will remain the foremost community portal in the UK for IT contractors and the recruiters hunting down their talents.
The firm’s spokesman, Luke Clothier, said: “We strive to be the most technical job board in the market through creative innovation. Our unique functionality is what sets us apart, and we are constantly developing new ideas and features for both the IT contractor and recruiter to speed up the recruitment process.”
The portal has thus far done an impressive job in connecting contractors with live contracts quickly and efficiently, and is already becoming one the country’s premier specialist IT contractor job boards.
