Online careers and recruitment provider Monster has signed a four year contract with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to provide a managed online vacancy taking, filling and automated job matching service, as  part of the DWP Digitisation Program.

The new system, due to launch in autumn 2012, will give employers free access to a searchable database of jobseekers, expanding the talent pool they can actively recruit from via the Business Link website.
