Financial technology provider Australian FinTech has recently launched its fintech job market, which has been named Australian FinTech Jobs. This platform has been created due to popular demand from the Australian fintech community for an online environment for this field, according to Cameron Dart, the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of the company.
As of now, Australian FinTech Jobs is the sole web based environment where fintech firms, recruiters, and employees in Australia can share and advertise career opportunities not only in this sector, but in banking, financial services, IT, and legal sectors as well. The platform currently lists 500 companies in its directory.
Mr. Dart said that the company’s product is the answer to several issues within the sector, from job ads going missing to unqualified individuals attempting to score a certain position that is out of their league. “We found there was a gap in the market for a dedicated employment site like this. These FinTech leaders informed me that they were sick of their adverts getting lost on huge employment sites. On the flipside, others mentioned that 200 to 300 people would apply for one role, most of them completely unqualified. I was also told that a plumber applied for one job saying ‘yeah I could be a programmer’.”
Rob James, the other co-founder and CTO, spoke of how the firm’s target audience is the crème de la crème of the Australian industry: “With the volume of quality readers on AustralianFinTech.com.au, we now have a targeted audience for FinTech employers and recruitment companies to promote to. Between our website, newsletter and social media followers, we have the who’s who of the FinTech industry here and abroad, as well as Big Four Bank CEO’s, government MP’s, investors, VC’s, Accountants, Lawyers, Financial Planners, Investment Bankers and those on the peripheral of the FinTech industry, as well as university students and the general public.”
