The online way to get into work

The young people of Scotland’s Highlands and islands turn to the same place they live their lives: online.

Nearly a quarter of new job seekers turn to their mobile phones to find work.

‘For the mobile jobseeker, especially for those who have never owned a PC, the process of finding a job should be as easy as shopping on Amazon or browsing Instagram’, said Christopher Snelgrove, the man behind the new app developed by Fort William-based pioneering recruitment site HIJOBS, which is an associate of The Oban Times and its sister papers. The 18 to 24-year-old age group makes up 22.63 per cent of HIJOB users. Alongside the investment across the Highlands and islands in broadband and 4G by public and private sectors, it means the national and local job markets are just a smart phone away from the UK’s most remote communities. ‘The increasing availability and reliability of fast internet in the Highlands will continue to be transformative for the prosperity of our rural communities; this improved connectivity paired with our continued development- for-mobile is making this a reality and opening more opportunities for a new generation’, said Christopher.
