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,

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.
