CareerBuilder Acquires CareerSite.Biz

LONDON, 17 March, 2010 - CareerBuilder, the global leader in human capital solutions, is taking the next step in its international expansion with the purchase of CareerSite.biz, parent of three successful career-related operations in the UK. Founded in 2001, CareerSite.biz operates two online recruitment niche sites focusing on nursing and railway workers as well as a successful virtual career fair business. As part of the deal, the following businesses will become part of the CareerBuilder family:

  • StaffNurse.com - the #1 destination for nurses, midwives, and health care assistants. Nursing professionals turn to StaffNurse.com first for the latest nursing jobs, nursing news, nursing directory and a nursing forum.

  • RailwayPeople.com - the #1 online destination for UK rail professionals. Rail professionals turn to railwaypeople.com first for the latest rail jobs, rail news, rail directory and rail forum.

  • VirtualFair.co.uk - provider of media-rich career fair events, offering attendees a highly interactive environment while replicating aspects of a physical event.

The acquisition of CareerSite.biz adds thousands of new job seekers to CareerBuilder's international network. The new properties will retain their existing brand names, but will be powered by CareerBuilder technology. Financial terms surrounding the acquisition have not been released.

"The acquisition of Careersite.biz delivers on our commitment to gain access into key sectors of the workforce to support our clients hiring needs in the UK and across Europe," said Farhan Yasin, President of CareerBuilder Europe and Middle East.

CareerBuilder is building its international presence through a combination of organic development, partnerships and acquisitions as market conditions warrant. Today, CareerBuilder has sites across Europe in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, the Gulf Region, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Additionally, CareerBuilder has sites in Canada, India and China as well as partnerships across the world including Japan, South Africa, South America and South Korea.
