Former FT.com European sales manager Gareth Jones is looking for

more than 20 sales staff to work on the UK version of a huge European

job recruitment website.



Jones has taken the role of UK sales director for Job-pilot.co.uk, part

of German-based online recruitment service Jobs and Adverts.



’Within continental Europe, especially Germany, we are the undisputed

leader in the field,’ Jones commented. ’My job is to set up the UK sales

operation, creating the last part in the jigsaw puzzle of setting up

Europe’s largest recruitment website.’



Jones said he will be hiring 20 to 30 people by the end of the year to

work in sales and account management.



’We are looking for people from a variety of backgrounds - recruitment,

traditional media sales, customer service and relationship management -

with the aim of being the UK’s leading online recruitment solutions

provider,’ Jones said.



Jones was at FT.com for two-and-a-half years before his departure

earlier this month (Media Business, 14 February). Philippa Edward

replaced him in the role of European sales head.



Jones is the second high-profile departure at FT.com since Anthony

Carbonari, who went to Disney Interactive late last year.



Frankfurt-based Jobpilot was founded in 1995 and specialises in

professional sectors such as finance and medical.



Jobpilot, which records over 15 million page impressions per month,

claims to be one of Europe’s largest recruitment sites. However, it is

just one of many companies to launch a UK net recruitment site. Jobpilot

will go up against Reed Business Information’s TotalJobs.com,

StepStone.com and the Evening Standard’s internet venture

BigBlueDog.com.
