Jobseekers and employers around the country have a new and better way to connect thanks to ACM and CareerOne.

ACM, publisher of this website, is Australia's largest independent news brand serving suburban, regional and rural areas. CareerOne is Australia's fastest growing jobseeker destination.

Together, through an exclusive partnership, they are offering a simple and effective way for jobseekers and local employers to find each other.

The job section of every ACM newspaper, online and in print, will now be powered by the CareerOne platform.

Businesses can easily lodge a job ad through the classifieds team at their local newspaper or by going online. Look for the Jobs tab in the main navigation bar at the top of the home page and click on the Post a Job button. Jobseekers can also access the CareerOne jobs board through their local ACM website.

CareerOne chairman Garen Azoyan said he was excited by the added value the partnership provided to both parties.

"More than 25,000 new members are joining CareerOne monthly and now we are proudly partnering with ACM to extend our reach to their 6.4 million monthly audience, across 140-plus publications," he said.

Answer a few questions about yourself and your work interests and CareerOne will find jobs to match.

ACM managing director Tony Kendall said the media business and CareerOne were an ideal fit.

"At ACM we know the importance of finding the right people," he said.

"We have a large staff employed in diverse roles in every state and territory and are always on the lookout to recruit talent. We know other businesses, regardless of their size, are in the same boat when it comes to identifying quality staff. It is a key business decision.

"CareerOne is unique in that it not only supports a business's recruitment needs but it also discovers potential candidates who may not have realised they qualified for a role.

"It's this discovery process that really appealed and something we hope local businesses can benefit from."

CareerOne chief operating officer Moussa Namini said the business's core mission was to "offer the best job-hunting experience" for Australians, empowering them to easily navigate what was often a tricky task.

"CareerOne has built a new way to connect talent to employers, by recommending matches to jobseekers based on their skills and experience," he said.

"Through our partnership with ACM, our experience will be housed inside some of Australia's most trusted publication brand names around the country."

Jobseekers who register with CareerOne and answer a few questions about their qualifications, experience and work interests, are matched to jobs without having to run a search, often guessing at the titles that might be advertised.

CareerOne uses artificial intelligence to align a jobseeker's profile to opportunities being advertised in their system, suggesting roles that they might not otherwise have found.

"ACM is keen to do what we can to boost employment prospects across Australia and we believe our partnership with CareerOne will help jobseekers connect with meaningful work," Mr Kendall said.

CareerOne also offers free resume advice to help jobseekers put their best foot forward.

ACM, once a division of the Fairfax Media group that was absorbed into Nine Entertainment, is now privately owned by Alex Waislitz's Thorney Investment Group and former Domain boss Antony Catalano. Mr Catalano is ACM's executive chairman.

Since taking ownership of the news brand, they have entered a successful joint venture with property listing portal realestateview.com.au, launched two new magazines under the Review brand, embarked on a major trade marketing campaign to national agencies, and clocked up more than 100,000 digital subscribers across the ACM network.

ACM's titles include The Canberra Times, Newcastle Herald, Illawarra Mercury, the Border Mail, Wagga Daily Advertiser, Ballarat Courier, Bendigo Advertiser, the Launceston Examiner and Burnie Advocate.
