LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Indeed, the world’s largest jobs site, and Quandoo, one of the fastest growing restaurant reservation platforms worldwide, today announce a partnership to support the restaurant industry’s current hiring crisis.
This partnership will see restaurants be provided with £50 credit to post a sponsored job advertisement on Indeed’s platform. Sponsored jobs advertisements receive optimal visibility and are more likely to deliver hires* which Indeed and Quandoo hope will connect staff with the restaurants that need them the most.
Employers posting a job on Indeed for the first time will have £50 credited to their account to start sponsoring their jobs and reaching more candidates. Employers in the UK can claim the offer here.
“We are so excited about this partnership. It’s a topic that is close to home for us at Quandoo as we are hearing how challenging it is to find staff from our partners. So we wanted to do our bit to support the wider industry in any way we can. By partnering with Indeed we believe we can contribute to solving this serious issue”, Quandoo CEO, Hidetaka Kawashima says.
This partnership comes in the wake of the restaurant industry experiencing a major shortage in staffing resulting from the COVID-19 global pandemic. Indeed data shows that UK food preparation and service jobs are 40% above their pre-pandemic level* which means demand for new workers is unusually high.
Derek Diviney, VP Sales and Client Success EMEA, at the global job site Indeed, said: “Food sector job postings have soared in recent months and are now well above their pre-pandemic level. However, the supply of jobseekers has not kept pace with demand and as a result many employers are experiencing bottlenecks.”
“Indeed’s mission is to help people get jobs and we hope that our partnership with Quandoo will help restaurants all over the world to quickly hire qualified candidates to meet the surging consumer demand.”
Quandoo UK Country Manager, Nick Falla, comments that “the UK restaurant industry has had such a challenging few months so by offering them the opportunity to take advantage of Indeed’s sponsored job advertisements, we aim to ease the issues many are facing at the moment”.
This partnership has been launched in the UK, Australia, Germany, Austria and Italy on October 1, 2021.
