Local solutions for online recruitment worldwide
In a mission to provide recruiters with one global solution for all their international hiring needs, over the last decade The Network has grown into an affiliation of the world’s leading job boards covering 130+ countries. By uniting the best local recruitment services into a convenient global solution, The Network has become a mainstay in the online recruitment market.
Strong players from around the world
The Network’s success is based on the strength of its members. All major players in their respective countries, many are clear market leaders and some even enjoying a market share of over 80%.
Present in over 130 countries, The Network members have in-depth knowledge of local labour markets and proven recruitment methods for international hiring campaigns. Instead of a cookie-cutter approach, The Network provides products developed in and for each country. Coupled with flexible, cost-effective country packages to fit hiring needs from five to five thousand, this individualised approach results in better candidates, more convenience for online recruitment staff, and a higher ROI.
The Network’s investment
Innovation has been key to leadership, and many member job boards are pioneering market leaders in online recruitment. Some started as traditional classifieds with major media groups like Axel Springer and SaonGroup, while others are setting standards for tomorrow’s online recruitment solutions in growing markets.
Local expertise, global reach
With one local account manager to take care of hiring needs in dozens of countries, recruiters benefit from the convenience and reliability of The Network. The member in each country works on local time, speaks the local languages and provides a single point of contact for a network of global online recruitment experts. These local contacts help companies find the best strategy and product mix to fit the individual recruitment needs. In addition to a great value, customers also enjoy the convenience of a single invoice in their local currency – no matter where on earth staff is needed.
With a central office located in the hub of Europe known as Brussels, Belgium, The Network was founded in 2002 by StepStone and Totaljobs.com. By the end of that year, the alliance covered 18 countries and a large share of Western and Central Europe.
The Network went global with online recruitment in 2005, providing European customers access to the world’s largest economy and opening the European market to North Americans.
Growth continued when major customers presented their hiring needs, inspiring The Network alliance to find recruitment solutions in 20 additional emerging countries through strategic, client-led expansion.
A decade later, over 50 of the world’s leading job boards are united within The Network, offering recruiters unrivalled reach to the best talent in over 130 countries. A culture of synergy and exchange within The Network is key to continued success in online recruitment.
