YourCareerGroup GmbH, part of Axel Springer’s StepStone Group, has taken over the Swiss job site Hoteljob.ch from business association HotellerieSuisse, the company announced Tuesday.
YourCareerGroup operates the online job board Hotelcareer.ch. With its latest acquisition the company has expanded its portfolio in the hotel, catering and tourism industries in Switzerland.
“Switzerland has enormous potential in the tourism industry,“ said Piet Derriks, managing director of YourCareerGroup. “With Hoteljob.ch, we at Hotelcareer have broadened our reach and have even more opportunities to bring the right employees and companies together — and thus provide even better long-term support for the hotel and catering industry.“
YourCareerGroup was founded in 1999. Its well-known brand Hotelcareer is active in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France and Poland. In 2014, YourCareerGroup was acquired by the StepStone Group and became part of Axel Springer’s digital classifieds segment.
“With the takeover of hoteljob.ch by Hotelcareer, our members and customers benefit from even greater visibility and a greater range of their job advertisements as well as the advantages of a modern and innovative portal,“ said Bernt Maulaz, member of the management of HotellerieSuisse.
Hoteljob.ch will be managed by Hotelcareer effective immediately.
