Journal launches new jobs website

Johnston Press, the publisher of the Journal and its website, has this week launched TheEngineerList ( – a new digital recruitment service aimed at helping employers find the perfect candidate in the engineering field.

The new service is a spin-off from JP’s successful online recruitment tool TheSmartList which, for a fixed fee, allows companies to source jobseekers via a pre-screened shortlist of qualified candidates and means vacant roles can be filled.

Employers submit details of their vacancy and TheEngineerList team prepares a recruitment brief against which candidates can be matched.

Promising individuals are screened using a questionnaire and, once TheEngineerList is finalised, the employer can review candidates and select the best for interview.

“This new service will utilise the strengths of Johnston Press’ established recruitment platforms to generate applications and CVs will be filtered by industry professionals to guarantee quality,” said Joe Slavin, from Johnston Press.
