Website agency targets job seekers for repairers

A new recruitment agency targeting small bodyshops and workshops is offering employers a chance to advertise jobs to the right audience.

Tecconex, which made its debut in December 2006, is an internet-based company following a much copied no-frills business plan.

For £75, a job advertisement will stay on display for two months. If they make a successful referral, a final fee of £175 is then collected.

Jonathan Causebrook of Tecconex says: “So far we’ve got 10 jobs advertised and we’re getting about 40 new visits a day from people looking for jobs.”

In order to reach the right audience of jobseekers Tecconex is targeting a variety of media with its marketing campaign.

The company is also advertising its job positions in Polish and Spanish.

Causebrook says: “We’re advertising online at places like Google and Yahoo.

“We’re also planning on placing some advertisements in trade magazines, but a lot of the jobseekers we’re targeting wouldn’t read these so we’re also looking at more local media.

“In the future we will also place ads in lads mags.”

In addition to jobs there is also a notice board where secondhand tools and garage equipment can be bought and sold.
