Why should I advertise with Jobs-Nearby?

Jobs-Nearby uses geo-location technology to address the current challenging labor market environment in Singapore.

The platform focuses on lower skilled (rank and file) workers, transient workers and the underemployed in society. Given the nature and remuneration of such work, travelling distances and time become a very important factor in choosing work. At Jobs-Nearby workers are better matched to your company by proximity, resulting in less turnover and increased disposable income for workers.

We are also working in conjuction with CDCs, RCs and CCs in Singapore to promote the platform in the heartlands, giving you access to a rich pool of a very much sought after segment of jobseekers.
