Trinity Mirror unleashes £1m in-house job sites technology

New cloud platform enables media company to develop web services and mobile sites faster

Trinity Mirror is rolling out its £1 million, internally-developed Advanced Recruitment Technology (ART) across its jobs sites portfolio, which includes Fish4jobs, GAAPweb, SecsintheCity, PlanetRecruit and TotallyLegal.

Trinity Mirror Digital Recruitment's ART is an enterprise-grade Java platform, hosted in the Amazon cloud, with new job recruitment features in social media, mobile and search.

Gareth Lloyd, operations director of Trinity Mirror Digital Recruitment, said: "Like all major players in the sector there was some pretty old technology at the heart of some of our sites. We have built ART from the ground up, so we can drive forward so much more quickly in developing our web services, social integration and mobile sites."

ART includes specifically designed interfaces for mobile access, optimised for smaller screens, and for tablets with specific touch screen features.

ART's inline application process and "infinity" search results free jobseekers from page by page navigation and suggests relevant jobs based on a candidate's onsite behaviour.

With social media playing a critical role in the hiring process, recruiters and employers can also validate a jobseeker's online reputation through ART's social media integration, as it carries them straight to the social networking sites added by jobseekers.

Jobseekers can create a CV and apply for jobs using their LinkedIn profile and receive jobs direct to their Twitter account.

Earlier this year Facebook slammed companies for demanding the passwords to potential recruits' Facebook accounts, so that they could fully check their "suitability" for employment.
