Information for Freelancers working for Start

Start is a Dutch company active on labor market since 1976. We are the second largest company of its kind on European labor market. Start operates in Thailand since 2005.

 

Start in Thailand

 

Start runs a web page www.start.co.th where companies advertise free job vacancies and people interested in the offered jobs can apply through this page. At the current time the web page www.start.co.th operates database of 20.000 people interested in finding new job.

 

What we exactly do

 

- We do advertise the job vacancies of employers on the www.start.co.th page and also promote those job vacancies on various social media or other channels, such as Facebook, Line, Jora, Jooble, Panthip, Thailand job network, Job Cute, Craigslist and many others. The total outreach is about 10 millions of users within Thailand.

 

- We do help people looking for job to create a profile on our page and apply for job positions available.

 

- We call every candidate who expresses his or hers desire in any of the advertised or promoted position outside our web page. Every candidate who apply via our page for a job can create and generate own resume which can be downloaded and used for free. ( candidates applying for positions especially within the hospitality sector, such as waiter of chef mostly do not have a resume or don’t know how to create one ).

 

- The client who advertises with us will receive resumes of applicants to his/her email and also has full access to the system www.start.co.th and its database of jobseekers. That means jobseekers apply directly for the position offered or the client can browse also in our database and contact any of the chosen jobseekers by himself.

 

- Start focuses and specializes mainly on Hospitality sector, such as Restaurants, Hotels, Hostels and any kind of administrative jobs.  We can do also other jobs, but the success rate depends on the current situation on the market. ( for example to find IT manager or programmer is much more difficult than to find a good chef, it takes more time to find the right candidate ).
