Bauer to close radio station job sites

Bauer Media is to close Workmoose – the business which provides job sites to a number of radio stations in its Places portfolio.

The sites, such as and will close by June 18th, with bosses saying the operation is not commercially viable.

Bauer’s Regional Managing Director Radio in Yorkshire Tracy Eastwood said in an email to users of the site: “Despite continued investment to improve and develop the business, it remains clear that Workmoose is not commercially viable and we have taken the reluctant decision to close the business. This was not a decision we came to easily, as we want every one of our brands to succeed.”

Workmoose started in 2008 and operated in the areas covered by one of Bauer’s local radio stations in the north of England, including Newcastle, Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester and Liverpool.

“Despite Workmoose becoming an established top tier recruitment portal, the external market still remains very challenging and the business cannot operate on its current cost base. I hope you will accept our apologies for any inconvenience this difficult decision may cause you,” Eastwood said.
