Indeed Expands to Serve German Job Seekers
Today, we’re announcing the opening of our German subsidiary with an office in Düsseldorf. With a 124% increase in traffic since June 2012 and 2.3 million unique visitors in June 2013, Indeed.de is the fastest growing job site in Germany and we’re excited about our expansion in this key market (Google Analytics, comScore).
Every day at Indeed, in 50 countries and 26 languages, we help people find jobs. Germany is a dynamic talent market, and this highly skilled workforce is the driving force behind Europe’s largest national economy. Unlike sites that show only paid job listings from employers, Indeed is a comprehensive job search site with free access to millions of jobs from thousands of direct employers, staffing agencies and job boards — and German job seekers are embracing this unique model. “We became the world’s leading job site by putting job seekers’ interests first and providing the best possible job search experience in every market,” CEO Rony Kahan explains.
This new kind of job search also changes how employers connect with the right candidates in Germany. On other job sites, an employer in Germany pays one of the highest fixed prices in the world for the placement of a job posting. With Indeed, when employers post a job they only pay when job seekers actually click on their postings, meaning that employers get measurable results from their recruiting campaigns and can easily adjust budgets.
Headed by Frank Hensgens, a seasoned veteran with over 10 years in Germany’s most successful e-recruitment organization, the Indeed office in Düsseldorf will be recruiting for roles in the areas of business development and communications.
