Looking to Hire in Fintech?

Australian FinTech Jobs is the answer

Since launching just over 10 weeks ago, Australian FinTech Jobs, the only dedicated Fintech employment platform in Australia, is already achieving the goals it was designed for.

“Our intention for Australian FinTech Jobs is for quality, not quantity. The other large behemoth job sites can and will provide the quantity, but as we’re proving, we’re providing the right candidates,” CEO Cameron Dart announced.

“Across the board, the feedback we’re getting is certainly encouraging – the number of applications are lower than our massive competitors, but the candidates are of a higher calibre. And in many cases, the hired jobseeker has come from our platform,” Dart continued.

AustraliaFinTech.com.au, the No.1 website for all things ‘Fintech’ in Australia, averages 16,000 unique users per month. Visitors to the site, and the 2,000 subscribers to their newsletter, include most people in the FinTech industry and those on the peripheral like Accountants, Financial Planners, Lawyers, Fund Managers, Bankers, Investors, VC’s and people interested in FinTech.

The Australian FinTech team are capitalising on this by pushing as much of this traffic through to their new jobs site. And it seems to be working with over 10,000 unique users visiting the new platform in just the first two months since its launch.

“We also have a deal with global jobs platform Indeed.com where every job listing posted on Australian FinTech Jobs also appears on Indeed at no extra cost to the advertiser,” added Co-Founder Rob James.

“It’s a great feature, and fantastic value for the advertiser as they get their job adverts seen on a niche site like Australian FinTech Jobs and it also reaches a mass market of 4.5 million users each month on Indeed,” said James.

The team are always looking at ways to improve the site and new features to introduce. In just the past month, the site has added a new function where Jobseekers can apply via Australian FinTech Jobs directly but are then redirected to a specific URL on a Fintech company’s careers page or HR platform, like JobAdder, WorkDay for example. It also works exactly the same for recruiters.

“Some Fintechs and recruiters don’t want another jobs board to deal with. So we’ve introduced a new function that when a jobseeker clicks on the APPLY NOW button on our site, and instead of applying on our site, the link takes the jobseeker directly to the Fintech or recruitment company’s page or HR platform on their site. That way the jobseeker is applying exactly where the Fintech or recruiter wants them to apply and all their applications are in one spot. We think it’s a pretty cool feature,” Dart said.

The Fintech jobs platform is more than just recruiting – you can now post YouTube videos in each job listing which is a great branding tool for Fintechs explaining who they are and what they do.

James adds, “It’s also perfect for recruitment firms to get their brand out there to gain new clients in one of Australia’s fastest growing industries.”

Dart and James have more additions to add to the platform over the coming months and will be ramping-up promotion of the site early in 2018 when many will be job searching as part of their ‘new year resolutions’.

Dart finishes, “We are very excited about 2018 and have some amazing plans ahead, but you’ll have to wait and see!”

If the last few month has been anything to go by, 2018 should be a very big year for the Australian FinTech Jobs team.
