A new company called Channel People has sprung up recently which aims to supply Channel companies with the talent they are looking for. The IT Channel is a unique and special place, full of very talented people but it can be a hidden and misunderstood world when it comes to attracting new talent.
Gavin O’Shea, Director at Channel People, commented, “It became clear to us after our own extensive time in the IT Channel, that the generalist jobsites did not address the specifics of what we know as the Channel. Jobs were mis-catorgised and valuable time was wasted searching through unsuitable roles.
That is why we decided to develop channelpeople.co.uk to be the UK’s first IT Channel only job website. A resource where IT Channel vendors, distributors, value-added resellers and service providers can advertise their vacancies to a targeted audience of industry professionals and new talent.”
The site is designed to complement channel organisation’s existing recruitment activities, helping to reduce costs, save time and immediately reach the right audience. At the same time, it gives candidates a very specific and dedicated place to search for their next role.
channelpeople.co.uk uses industry specific search filters designed to help IT Channel sales professionals, marketers, commercial and technical specialists, easily find our client’s vacancies that are relevant to them.
O’Shea continued “It’s early days but we’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response from some leading companies who have registered and posted vacancies.”
