Access-Science Jobs is a specialist UK job site dedicated to the science industry. Since 2005, we have been helping employers attract professional scientists across disciplines in chemistry, biology and the life sciences within laboratory, sales, regulatory and clinical.
Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Access Science has been around since 2004, with Simeon Ractliffe at the head of the specialist job site. Unfortunately, the visibility is unknown at the moment, according to SimilarWeb, but we can see that the social media is updated for the 875 followers on Facebook, 402 on LinkedIn and 1 253 on Twitter.
Design: The homepage features a search engine (keywords) over an image of a lab and some different categories to start your search. Once in the job listing, the filters (keywords, location, discipline, experience, level experience, salary, contract type) appear on the left-hand side. Jobs can be sorted by relevance or date. Job offers display a publication date or an expiry date if they have just been published or will be removed soon. Some don’t display anything. You can browse the companies and filter by agencies or employers. The pages are standardised and clear.
The job board objective: Access Science Jobs exactly what the name says: it provides access to science jobs.
Recruiter observations: It’s very easy to create an account and order credits online.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account.
The job offers: There are 1 100 jobs online. Most of the jobs are in Life Science, Biology and Chemistry.
Reactivity: You can contact the team through Facebook.
Special features: The career advice (no publication dates); the statistics about users.
Verdict: It’s never a good sign when you can’t find the visibility for a job site. That said, the design is user-friendly and jobseekers have more than enough jobs to choose from.
