Johnston Press has announced the launch of The SmartList Scotland.

The SmartList, a fixed-price recruitment service, provides recruiters with a short list of quality, pre-screened candidates for one fixed fee.

The SmartList is owned and operated by Johnston Press, the publisher of the Journal and Gazette.

This new recruitment offering bridges the gap between traditional advertising and recruitment consultancies with strong emphasis on providing a high quality service to its clients.

The service is being launched in association with STV which will provide media and promotional support. A television advert promoting the benefits of using The SmartList first airs on June 13.

A multimedia campaign will promote the service through STV accompanied by a newspaper and online advertising campaign in all Johnston Press Scottish titles.

Businesses can submit their job details to The SmartList team of recruitment professionals for one fixed fee.

Stephen Anderson, general manager of The SmartList, said: “We are incredibly excited about the new opportunities that this joint venture offers.’’
