The partnership will utilise Newsquest’s 11 newly launched x1 job sites, which include se1jobs.com , covering the South East and nw1jobs.com serving the North West which combine local focus with national coverage, integrating with Newsquest’s local print titles to capture both passive and active jobseekers.
The partnership includes the posting of volunteering job roles from the 51,000 charitable organisations represented by Do-it.org across Newsquest’s 11 x1 job sites. The partnership will also include the publication of local volunteering editorial features across Newsquest’s local print titles.
Jamie Ward-Smith, CEO of Do-it.org said, “We are really excited to be working with Newsquest. The opportunity to promote volunteering to over 28 million digital users through their digital channels is huge, potentially enabling thousands of charities and community groups across the UK to gain access to skills and talent that they need to support their work. What’s especially attractive about this partnership is the local focus that Newsquest offers through their local and regional print and digital platforms. Volunteering is all about local people supporting local causes and issues and this provides a unique way for the 51,000 charities and volunteer centres who use Do-it.org to promote their work in a whole new way.”
Dawn Sweeney, Managing Director of Newsquest Recruitment Solutions said “we are delighted to be working with Do-it.org, The Newsquest network of over 300 local newspapers and websites and our audience of 28million digital users and 6million weekly print readers across England and Wales provides Do-it with a terrific opportunity to increase the reach of their vacancies and to get more people into volunteering”
