A Blackpool-born entrepreneur has gone back to his roots to launch his latest venture – a job search website.
Richard McMunn, who was born in Quernmore Avenue and lived there as a child, was in the navy and the fire service before becoming a successful author and owner of how2become – a careers and personal development company.
Now he has set up a recruitment website which he aims to roll out to other UK regions following the launch of his Lancashire version, JobsInLancashire.com
He said it aimed to help connect jobseekers and businesses in a more efficient manner.
He added: “I’ve decided to launch the site in Lancashire first as it is a very buoyant job market.
“I did consider launching in other regions but decided I wanted to launch this in Lancashire, partly because of my heritage but also because the county has been known for innovation throughout the centuries.
“For businesses the website represents a simple way to advertise their job vacancies during this tough economic climate. For jobseekers, it is a platform to search and apply for up-to-date jobs from home or via their hand-held devices on the move.”
The website is free for jobseekers who can upload their CV and search based on a selection of preferred criteria.
