CSB Group CEO Michael J. Zammit expressed his confidence in Konnekt’s capabilities: “We are certain that Konnekt will do an excellent job at curating the thousands of candidates and clients we have serviced since 1999.”

“Their expertise and dedication to quality make them the ideal stewards for the future of VacancyCentre’s clients and candidates,” he continued.

IP constitutes intangible creations of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs, symbols, names and images.

In their statement, the firms did not clarify whether the VacancyCentre brand will remain in use for the foreseeable future.

They also did not provide any details as to how the two brands and their databases will be integrated, nor did they divulge the cost of the transaction.

However, when accessing, users are notified that it has terminated its recruitment services, before redirecting them to Konnekt’s website. This suggests that the brand will no longer be in use.
