Adevinta Spain’s market-leading recruitment portal InfoJobs.net has launched a tech recruitment portal in collaboration with Barcelona Tech City. The niche sub-site, called Tech Talent, advertises roles available at any of the businesses within Tech City.
Barcelona Tech City bills itself a “project driven by local entrepreneurs that… represents more than 1,000 businesses.” These include start-ups, consolidated businesses, investors, incubators, accelerators, company builders, universities, business schools, media and government agencies.
Tech Talent is a semi-private job board. Users have to register to apply for roles. They can, however, upload their resume without joining the platform. Businesses that register can can get one year of unlimited, free job postings.
The move is consistent with InfoJobs’ focus on tech recruitment in recent years. Among other things, it started sponsoring an e-sports team, potentially gaining traction among a young, digital-savvy audience.
After a brutal year for employment in Spain, betting on well-paid, potentially remote roles seems safe. Whether there is enough volume to justify creating a new sub-brand is less certain. As of March 26, the Tech Talent board had six job offers.
Adevinta Spain did not respond to a request for comment on the new project.
