JIM’s success in 2023 and growth in 2024

What is JIM – Jobs in Manchester?

JIM is a dedicated online jobs board that promotes Greater Manchester based jobs locally. We are purely promotional. JIM isn’t a recruitment platform, we take no details from applicants, and aim to provide an easy to use service for both applicants and employers as an alternative to other online job boards.

Relaunching JIM – Jobs in Manchester

In late April 2023 we relaunched JIM, reviving a brand and web presence that had sat empty for a few years. The aim of JIM has always been the same, but we thought that there isn’t a better time and need for JIM post Covid. With more and more people looking for work and the economy picking up with supposedly more jobs than ever, JIM had a purpose, to help communities across Greater Manchester.

Launching the New Website and Starting Over

JIM was originally a sub domain and a heavily tied to MBH – Manchester’s B2B Business Hub and practically apart of the MBH website. We separated JIM from MBH and launched with a new website in August. Giving JIM a well needed facelift and us far more capabilities than JIM ever had before. sacrificed a lot of JIM’s historic authority to start fresh with a new website and domain.
