XY Adviser, an online professional network for the financial advice industry, has launched a recruitment marketplace to help advice businesses attract staff.
A statement from the organisation says that based on the feedback of its 4,700 strong members, it has launched its ‘XY Jobs Board’ as a way to connect employers with prospective employees “…at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives.”
It adds that by virtue of the XY platform as a community of professionals, ”… XY hopes to create the most concentrated marketplace of high-quality talent in the advice industry.”
Founder and CEO Clayton Daniel says they built the online employment marketplace to help employers find new talent and advisers find roles in an efficient and cost-effective way, “…which is something we have been doing in the background for a long time.”
“Our online employment marketplace has allowed us to scale this initiative and help even more advisers and professionals achieve great HR outcomes…”
The statement notes that XY Adviser’s online forum regularly sees more than 100 posts per month on the topic of recruitment. Through its Jobs Board, members can now apply for a job and find new staff for free.
For $30 per month, through an XY+ membership, members can publicly or anonymously post job opportunities when looking for talent, or post their CV if looking for a new role.
…since its launch in March, the Jobs Board has had more than 6,000 member visits…
The organisation says that since its launch in March, the Jobs Board has had more than 6,000 member visits and has helped successfully fill 10 roles inside advice businesses.
The statement adds that the organisation has followed the launch of the Jobs Board with the addition of a ‘Practice Marketplace’ which connects those looking to sell or merge their business or book of clients with potential purchasers.
“This feature allows business owners to find merging opportunities, acquire modern practices or sell their business as desired.
“Whether they’re looking to exit or scale up their business, this practice marketplace seeks to connect …. business owners with similar objectives so they join forces and achieve win-win outcomes,” the statement says.
