Your new career could be in your pocket

Thanks to two local entrepreneurs it has never been easier to find a job in your local area. Lochaber-based Christopher Snelgrove and Laura Saunders founded Hijobs in 2014 as a direct response to the problems faced by local people – how do you find a job that will allow you to live and work in rural Scotland and not be forced to relocate to the likes of Glasgow, Edinburgh or further afield?

As Christopher puts it: ‘I love living in the West Highlands and didn’t want to compromise my lifestyle by uprooting to the central belt. However, the “big name” recruitment sites focus all their energy on recruiting in the big populati on centres. Laura and I set out to change that, and Hijobs was born.’ Hijobs’ primary focus is getting local candidates in front of local recruiters. Everything is built on the premise of making the technology as simple to use as possible for candidates and recruiters alike. According to Christopher, ‘first and foremost Hijobs is a technology company that just happens to be working in the recruitment market. Just because we are local doesn’t mean that we have cut any corners on the functionality of our site. In fact, I would say that our development is at the absolute cutti ng edge of our market.’
