Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Launched in 2006, five years after the first job board of the EuroJobsites, EuroBrussels, BrusselsJobs targets locals by offering jobs within Brussels mostly. There are a number of other EuroJobsites, like EuroScienceJobs and EuroEngineerJobs, which have the same design but different coloured stars. The current director is Richard Foster, who also directs the other partner sites. Despite a drop in traffic at the beginning of the year, it has gone up recently to about 20 000 visits a month. On social media, there are 567 followers on LinkedIn (for EuroJobsites), 1 588 on Twitter (just a list of offers) and another 4 478 on Facebook. In 2010, the CV database was created, enabling recruiters to source candidates. The candidates can be international; the jobs are in Brussels (or Belgium).
Design: The search engine (keywords and location) is in the middle of the homepage and the site suggests some popular keywords. The rest of the page is full of top jobs, the latest jobs and a stream of featured companies (who really are hiring but most only have one available position). In the job listing, the offers display logos and publication dates. The highlighted offers appear throughout the list in orange or on the right-hand side. To remind your search, you can use the filters (category, location) and the number of offers per category are visible. There are no company pages. Job offers don’t have any particular branding either.
The job board objective: EuroBrussels hopes to attract more professionals for the administrational roles as well as other international positions for Europe based in Belgium (mostly).
Recruiter observations: There are many different advertising options. To order a job offer online, you must provide a billing address, a VAT number and some information on the company.
Jobseeker observations: When you apply to jobs, either instructions are provided or you are redirected to another page.
The job offers: There are 336 jobs online and most of them are in IT and Finance & Accounting.
Reactivity: The team answers quickly on Facebook.
Special features: The testimonials; job alerts; the feedback options; the list of partner websites in the footer; the newsletter; self-evaluation guide.
Verdict: BrusselsJobs has the same design as the partner websites, but the audience is different. It targets candidates who are looking to work in Brussels. If you’re recruiting for positions in the city, BrusselsJobs is a great way to attract jobseekers from all over the world.
