eploy®, the UK's leading provider of online recruitment software has expanded its management team with the appointment of Mark Hobson to the role of Business Development Director. The appointment that sees Mark heading up the sales division comes as a result of eploy®'s success over the last 12-18 months, and forms part of the company's major growth plans.
Mark has more than 12 years recruitment experience which included heading up an international IT recruitment agency before moving into the software sector. He joins eploy® from a US based multi-national software company that specialises in Cloud Computing. In this role Mark was involved in developing and delivering software systems specifically for UK recruiters; however working remotely in the UK for a US centric company proved quite limiting with many problems relating to customer support and delivery.
Mark is now eager to take up the new role at eploy®, and he said; "I am delighted to join the team here, and the fact that eploy® is developed, hosted and supported in the UK was a major deciding factor. eploy® is also extremely well respected in the industry and being at the forefront of developing 'true' web based recruitment systems means they have experienced unprecedented success in recent years.
By working with Paul Burgess and Christopher Bogh, the Company's Founders and Directors, I very much look forward to building on their success and applying my skills and experience to create new business opportunities"
Paul Burgess, Managing Director at eploy® added: "We're very pleased to welcome Mark to our team. He has tremendous industry knowledge and experience of the recruitment software industry, and will be a real asset to the company as part of our expansion plans."
In 2009, a handful of eploy®'s new clients included Straco International, Care@ Recruitment, Morgan Jones, Expand Recruitment and Ardent Search & Selection as well as big name corporate clients including the British Heart Foundation, Play.com, The Cloud, Network Rail, London Fire Brigade, T-Systems and University of the Arts London. Many more significant clients are also expected to be announced shortly.
