One year ago today….

We took a huge step in our journey to change the way people find the perfect job, property or car. It’s been a wild ride since last July and we’ve had tremendous success. We want to thank you for your support so far and to celebrate with you what we’ve achieved in our first year. Our team is pretty tiny, but we have enormous ambition and we believe the last 12 months has been a massive step in the right direction to change classifieds search for the better.

What have we been up to?

  • Launched awesome new search engine for jobs
  • Indexed over 2 million ads from hundreds of sites: every UK ad in one place
  • Created social tools like Adzuna Connect, Friend Map and our Car Quiz that help you find your perfect job, home or car with a little help from your friends
  • Shared the Adzuna experience with over half a million visitors a month

…. and our success hasn’t gone unnoticed. Not only have we had awesome feedback from our users on the product, the national press and industry commentators seem to like what we’re up to as well. In the last year, Adzuna has featured in almost every UK national newspaper – from the Daily Telegraph and the Independent to The Sun
and the BBC. We’ve been delighted with the reaction to the site and we aim to continue making waves in the UK and beyond in 2012!

Pretty much all of Adzuna’s success is down to the incredibly hard working (and very international) team. Adzuna is currently represented by the UK, Italy, Portugal & Greece – and there’s only 10 of us! We’ve assembled Europe’s best technical and marketing talent to make Adzuna a global success (they also like drinking vodka out of watermelons)

We have one final reason to celebrate; today we’re launching free salary stats & charts for every job search. This info gives you insight into the market to make better career decisions, like no tool has done before. Try it now and let us know what you think!

We’ll be adding stats for property and cars soon, and there’s much more coming. Keep track on FacebookTwitter or our Blog or check out our Top Job Search Tips.

Thanks for being part of Adzuna and for your continued support. If you’ve found a great job, home or car using the site or have feedback, we’d love to hear from you in the comments below. If you like what we do, please tell your friends. Our journey is only just beginning.
