One of Manchester’s top recruitment agencies has launched a brand new platform that’s set to “revolutionise” the process for the hospitality sector.
Sixty Eight Jobs – which is founded by Abi Dunn and powered by prolific and highly-connected hospitality recruitment agency, Sixty Eight People – will provide a niche jobs board for hourly paid hospitality roles right across Greater Manchester.
Just like Sixty Eight People, this innovative new platform puts “people and their development” at the heart of everything.
Aiming to connect the most exciting hospitality businesses to the brightest stars in the industry, Sixty Eight Jobs is already proudly working with Mission Mars – operators of Albert’s Schloss and Rudy’s, Junkyard Golf Club, Blues Kitchen, Ducie Street Warehouse and Freight Island – and given the fact that the hospitality industry has been one of the worst affected amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, will look to help rebuild it in a swift and effective way.
Specifically tailored towards hourly-paid roles within Greater Manchester, Sixty Eight Jobs is a platform built by hospitality recruitment experts to ensure that the look and feel of the site fits the employers and will attract the right candidates, with exclusive content that support both in their recruitment journey.
Offering a refreshing change from “often outdated corporate, all sector boards” – which are known to provide high volumes of applications, but with low quality – Sixty Eight Jobs looks to counteract this and provide a platform with informal language, fresh imagery and slick mobile-friendly processes.
How does it work then?
Well first, all that hopeful candidates will need to do is simply create a ’68 Profile’ on the site, which only takes a couple of minutes, and from here, Sixty Eight Jobs will connect them directly with the best hospitality employers in the city, with everything from work in bars, restaurants, cinemas, hotels or coffee shops, all on offer.
For employers, there’s a range of packages available.
Each package provides employers with the ability to custom design job advertisements and share the link to all platforms, with Sixty Eight Jobs also helping to keep track of all applications by storing CV’s in one handy place.
The packages include:
- STAR – £0/Month, which includes one job post per month which remains live for 28 days.
- CLUSTER – A monthly subscription which offers five job posts a month, with each one live for 28 days. (FREE until 1st October, and then £50 per month).
- GALAXY – A monthly subscription which offers unlimited posts a month, with each one live for 28 days. (FREE until 1st October, and then £99 per month).
As part of the Sixty Eight Jobs’ “continued crusade to support the industry”, all packages will initially be free, with the STAR package remaining free and the others incurring a small charge after 1st October.
“This past year for the hospitality industry has just been absolutely devastating,” said Abi Dunn, Founder of Sixty Eight Jobs.
“And for me to watch it happen but powerless to do anything has been really hard, [so] this is when I decided to put my time to good use and develop a brand new platform that provided a slick and straightforward way to connect exciting businesses with hospitality stars.
“Sixty Eight Jobs isn’t about making money, it’s about creating a platform that helps hospitality businesses recover, helping them secure the right people for the job.
“This is just phase one of the project,
“I aspire to turn this into an app further down the line, even looking to expand into further cities”.
Sixty Eight Jobs will officially launch to the public on 31st March 2021, and you can find more information ahead of the launch and get started here.
