European online jobs marketplace StepStone has acquired hotel, catering and tourist industries’ job board YourCareerGroup, which specialises in German-speaking markets. 

YourCareerGroup operates nine online jobs portals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, including hotelcareer.de, gastronomiecareer.de and touristikcareer.de. At the time of the acquisition, its job boards had 12,000 listings and 500,000 unique visitors per month, according to a statement from the company.

Dr Jens Müffelmann, head of electronic media at Axel Springer, StepStone’s parent company, says: “This takeover means that StepStone is consolidating its position as market leader in Germany and as one of the leading online job boards in Europe. Axel Springer is thus continuing with its growth campaign in the classified market.”

StepStone acquired job site owner Totaljobs Group in April 2012, in a £110m deal.
