In response to growing demand from IFAs and financial services recruiters, IFA Life today announces the launch of IFA Life Jobs and Careers at http://www.ifalifejobs.com.
The site features traditional online job advertising by recruiters, agencies and individual IFA firms, but in an industry first will utilise many cutting edge social media features to help job advertisers significantly extend the reach of their marketing.
IFA Life founder Philip Calvert said today: “Two things are happening right now; the IFA jobs market is picking up strongly and Social Media is becoming an integral part of job advertising. Many recruiters are using Social Media as part of their marketing package, but IFA Life’s extensive reach will now give them a much bigger presence online – particularly given that we have a ready-made online community of IFAs.
“IFA Life already uses Social Media to help advertisers and moving into recruitment was a natural step forward for us.”
As well as the main IFA Life Jobs website, advertisers will have the option to tap into IFA Life’s main site at http://www.ifalife.com, several Twitter pages, LinkedIn, Ecademy and Facebook. Job vacancies will also appear on IFA Life’s iPhone App which was also launched recently.
IFA Life is also experimenting with location based online networking tools such as Foursquare and Gowalla, which will help people searching for jobs to find one in the region of their choice.
Philip Calvert added: “Social Media will undoubtedly have a profound impact on how people search for, find and advertise new financial services jobs, and we are delighted that IFA Life is leading the way. We have many more innovative ideas up our sleeve.”
For a limited period, IFA Life is offering free advertising on the new IFA Life Jobs and Careers website. Visit http://www.ifalifejobs.com for details.
