Recruitment Startup Jobnisit Changes Name to WorkVenture
Thailand’s fastest growing online recruitment platform, Jobnisit, is now operating under the new name WorkVenture.
Surging demand for a link between companies and young talent allowed Jobnisit to quickly conquer the graduate recruitment market. However, to accommodate their exponential growth outside graduate recruitment and eventual Asian expansion, the name Jobnisit set strategic limitations.
The new name, WorkVenture, better reflects the website’s growing candidate base which now ranges past fresh graduates all the way to middle management. It also endeavors to encapsulate the excitement involved with finding and growing a fulfilling career.
The company was founded in 2014 by a team of young entrepreneurs with a pioneering vision to fix Thailand’s dated recruitment model which had difficulties in quickly locating and retaining staff. To connect talent with opportunity on a large scale, the team designed the first semantic matching algorithm to be used in Asia’s recruitment process. Built-in house, the algorithm assesses big data to match and recommend candidates with jobs that suit their skills and work experience.
“We’re looking at the growth strategies of Google and Apple. Our focus is on building a premium product for leading companies in Asia by redefining the essence of online recruitment in the 21st century.” Mr Jens Pold, CEO, WorkVenture.
Presently, WorkVenture helps recruit young professionals for over 600 top companies; notably Microsoft, Kasikornbank, Louis Vuitton, Colgate Palmolive, Booking.com, Mitr Phol and Grab. Within the past 12 months, over 2 million local and international candidates have used WorkVenture to search and apply for their next career opportunity. To accommodate this demand, the company’s team of 30 recently relocated to Major Tower at Thong Lor and will double their team by the end of this year.
The name is not the only thing changing in the company. They plan to expand regionally into the Chinese, Singaporean and Indonesian markets as well as release a new mobile application and features not yet seen in South East Asia.
