“This platform is built on over 20 years worth of candidate data and analytics and we are continually analysing the job search and hiring process to see where it might be improved,” she adds. “AI technology has been a keen focus for us at SEEK and our machine learning capabilities have grown significantly in the past few years. This has enabled us to make a range of improvements to the technology behind some of our core products to enhance the experience of hirers and job seekers alike.”
James Nicholson, managing director, Robert Walters Australia & New Zealand said: “Our strategic partnership with SEEK and investment in Integrated Premium Talent Search is part of our vision to continually deliver quality service to our employees, clients and candidates through innovative technologies.
