A contractor solution for you

Media Release

For immediate release

A contractor solution for you

With organisations still feeling the pressure of having to reduce their costs by cutting permanent jobs, businesses are turning to contractor talent to get the jobs done.

Specialising in providing contractors, businesses and recruiters with an online tool where they can connect is Crackerjacks Contracting who have re-launched their company website with a new design and functionality. Tony Wai, Managing Director of Crackerjacks believes that the website enhancement is the key to their growth in New Zealand. “Whilst there has been a consolidation in job board solutions, there’s never been a platform that offers contractors, businesses and recruiter’s complete control and visibility in the same package”, he says.

Wai believes the website design will provide organisations with the complete management and responsibility over their jobs. “They can search and invite candidates to apply without publicly posting a job” he says. “They have the freedom to choose someone who they think has the expertise for their role”.

The design focuses on talent depth and platform opportunities aimed to bring businesses, recruiters and contracting professionals together. “With the opportunity to transfer profile information from LinkedIn, contractors can easily create a Crackerjacks profile and find the jobs they want”, says Wai.

With Crackerjacks acting as a virtual meeting place for candidates, businesses and recruiters, all participants are exposed to a fuller view of the contracting market. Wai comments, “We’ve developed a turn-key solution that allows recruiters to engage with companies”.

Wai launched Crackerjacks Contracting in 2008 after experiencing frustration when searching for contractor talent. “In any traditional recruitment medium there is either the case of too many employees and too little jobs or vice versa. Our ambition is to overcome this by using a platform that meets everyone’s expectations and delivers results”, he says.

Wai has high hopes for Crackerjacks to be used as a tool for everyone. “The new site makes it possible for contracting to become a realistic option for small to medium sized businesses”, he says.
