Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Established in 2005 by two ex-Auditors looking for a sector-specific online recruitment service, the privately owned specialist job board was the first of its kind. It specializes in Risk jobs and Risk recruitment. Some testimonials are also in the “About Us” section. Even if the design is a little austere (partially because of the blue and grey colour scheme), CareersinAudit is easy-to-use and a popular choice when it comes to Audit professions. On social media, it has 11 461 followers on Linkedin, 8 087 on Facebook and 3 470 on Twitter (for the Risk, Audit and Compliance websites combined). There are four different partner websites, many contact numbers and four different locations.
Design: The website design is almost exactly the same as the Audit one, but it has an image of a chess game at the top of the homepage. The focus of the homepage is the job search, followed by featured companies (which are actually hiring) and jobs and finally the career advice articles. To access the job listing, you can use the search engine in three parts (keywords, location and radius) or the jobs by type, by employer sector and by location just under it (including numbers in brackets). The filters are the job type, the job title, the employer sector, the location, the salary band, the contract type, the hours, the travel and the recruiter type. It’s not clear what travel means, but we would assume it refers to how much candidates need to travel for work. There is a company listing, where each company page includes the name, logo and a description. As a rule, the pages are standardized, but some are slightly different. Like other Madgex job boards, “browsing” is considered different to “searching” depending on whether you include a location.
The job board objective: CareersinRisk make it easy for professionals in risk and other such fields to find work.
Recruiter observations: Salary information and key figures are available on the website. When creating an account, you can mark your account as “VAT exempt”. For your adverts, you need to include a percentage for travel, the salary, a salary description and how you would like to receive applicants.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account (but you don't have to for the redirected offers). To apply to job offers, a CV is necessary and you’ll probably have to write a short message.
The job offers: The most popular sectors are banking & finance and financial services. There are 164 job offers in total.
Reactivity: They answer very quickly.
Special features: job alerts; the blog (with many subcategories); the courses; job of the week; audit campaigns; the awards page.
Verdict: CareersinRisk is a great website for anyone in that specific field. It’s clear, easy-to-use and recruiters can use it without having to contact a middleman. It’s not as developed as the CareersinAudit website, but it’s not bad all the same.
