Called mightymatch.com, the site has been developed in partnership with the Oracle Corporation to provide an end-to-end recruitment service to job seekers and employers.
According to its makers, the strength of mightymatch lies in its "sophisticated and highly accurate" profile-matching system that pairs candidates and clients using specific details (and not keywords) supplied by both parties.
To use the service, IT workers complete a thorough but "anonymous" profile of themselves while clients supply job advertisements and employer details.
Len Pritchard, operations director at mightymatch.com, says the service "totally automates" the recruitment process by sending internal messages to both parties, producing CVs, facilitating interview arrangements, generating letters of offer or rejection and supplying timesheets for contractors, "all at the click of a mouse button".
"Our specialised skills matching system and Oracle database technology allows mightymatch.com to perform all the functions of a good recruitment consultancy, but in a highly efficient manner that minimises administration and significantly reduces costs," comments Pritchard.
Use of the service is free until a hire is made, at which point mightymatch takes a five per cent recruitment fee.
Development of the site is ongoing and 'phase two' is expected to look "radically different", says Pritchard. Future features are likely to include free psychometric, aptitude and skills testing.
