UK recruitment Web site Taps.com has advertised more than 50,000 jobs since June 1996 and the company is currently generating revenues of more than a million pounds a year, the company has claimed. Backed by a consortium of companies including Harvey Nash, TCS Advertising, Delphi, Hyperlink and Robert Walters, the site is attracting more than 250,000 job seekers to its site each month. And as one of those rare Web sites that is currently making a profit, Taps.com is eager to grow its market share. Specialising in the finance and IT sectors until now, Taps.com is planning to extend its reach and include more sales and marketing jobs in the coming months, and has recently launched a Irish edition of its UK and European service. "The response we're getting from advertisers is that they're getting a better quality of candidate for vacancies," said Affie Panayiotou, marketing manager at the Mayfair-based company. As well as running recruitment campaigns, the site also provides additional content for users such as company profiles and is free to jobseekers. ®
