Monster mashes with News on jobs

NEWS Ltd’s career and recruitment services have been boosted by a partnership with global jobs giant Monster Worldwide, the companies announced.

Monster will own half of News’ CareerOne in the deal, while the Australian publisher will utilise Monster’s decade of experience in the sector to improve their jobs offering in print and online. Specific terms of the agreement remain private.

News Ltd Chairman and Chief Executive, John Hartigan, said: “Monster led the world in creating the online jobs market, and a decade later its expertise and technology is unrivalled. The combination of News Limited’s sales and marketing prowess, together with Monster’s world-class technology and expertise, make a powerful combination.”

Monster, who have presences in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia, will look to grow CareerOne into the number one career and recruitment site in Australia, said Sal Iannuzzi, Chairman and CEO of Monster Worldwide.

“With 140 newspapers reaching nearly 12 million people each week, News Limited provides the largest audience of any publisher. When coupled with the Monster experience, this joint venture will become the leading career and recruitment destination in Australia,” he said. Seek.com.au is currently the most visited jobs site in the region.
