Website provides ‘exciting new platform’

Localwork.ca new jobs and resume website for employers and job seekers

Black Press Media Group is pleased to announce the arrival of LocalWork.ca, a new jobs and resume website for employers and job seekers.

“LocalWork.ca offers job seekers and employment advertisers an exciting new platform that is easier to use and provides a nationally recognized brand,” says Randy Blair, Black Press’s President of the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island newspaper divisions. “Localwork.ca provides award-winning features and options that will enhance the entire online employment experience, and continues to provide the proven effectiveness of print recruitment advertising that is tailored to meet the advertisers’ needs and budget.”

LocalWork.ca will be operated by a partnership between Black Press and Metroland Media Group Ltd.

Through its chain of more than 100 newspapers, LocalWork.ca has already been filling the local recruitment and job search needs of countless job seekers and recruitment advertisers alike. With its 190 community and daily newspapers — which includes the Langley Times — Black Press will add to LocalWork.ca’s already extensive coverage and market, and will add valuable resources and services for our users.

Black Press also owns and operates BC Classifieds and BCClassified.com, and the Used Everywhere network.

LocalWork.ca’s mission is to deliver the best local job opportunities for employees-to-be, a simple and effective job search and recruitment advertising experience, and the best customer service in the job search industry.

“With one entry, I was able to place the ad both on the web and in the specific papers I wanted the ad to appear in,” said Sharon Wales from CertainTeed Gypsum Canada Inc. “The replies I received were from a wide variety of individuals and we were able to select quite a few candidates that we wished to interview from the many received.”

Black Press Community News Media is an internationally recognized newspaper publishing group with more than 190 community, daily and urban publications in B.C., Alberta, Yukon, Washington, Hawaii, California, and Ohio published at 14 regional printing centres. Black Press has over 160 websites as well as the Victoria-based free classified web site UsedEverywhere.com. Black Press employes 3,300 people across North America. Victoria, B.C. resident David Black is Founder, Chairman and majority owner of Black Press, and Rick O’Connor is President and CEO.
