Meituan Dianping, an on-demand delivery app, is developing a recruitment service, according to Chinese tech news site 36Kr

A source quoted said that Mantou Zhipin (“Steamed Bun Recruitment”) will start by helping businesses already using Meituan, such as restaurants and gyms, recruit blue-collar workers like waiters and trainers. Job seekers will be able to browse listings on Meituan’s app and a dedicated mini program on WeChat.

An estimated 80 million job seekers in China used recruiting apps last year. The top three apps -- Maimai, 51job.com and Boss Zhipin -- all boasted more than a million daily active users.
