Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Under the direction of Yannick Bossenmyer-Grivet since its creation in 2014, CrechEmploi is a specialist French job board for people looking to work with children and, more specifically, in crèches. The site offers both job offers and career advice for those who would like to work in a crèche but don’t know how to go about it. On social media, CrechEmploi keeps its followers updated on Viadeo (84 followers), on Linkedin (403), on Facebook (3 246) and on Twitter (1 582). 60 300 views are registered on SimilarWeb every month, all of which come from France and its islands (DOM-TOMs). For such a select market, the visibility is pretty good.
Design: The logo is a butterfly and the dominant colour is pink. The website looks like a family friendly blog, but the search engine (the location, keywords and the job title) and interactive map take centre stage on the homepage so that you know there is more than just articles on this site. The homepage also promotes some of its other features (like job alerts, the blog, the jobs of the week and the salary observation paper). You can also sign up for the newsletter or check out the latest offers. In the footer and at the top of the page, you can also browse through the job sheets and job locations. Once you’re in the job listing, the offers appear in a clear list (including useful information like the publication date, the location, the crèche name, the job title and a logo) and you can filter them thanks to the advanced search (the publication date, the salary, the type of contract and the required diplomas). The number of job offers is not indicated, but it’s easy to calculate based on the number of offers per page.
The job board objective: CrechEmploi has a mission to help crèche professionals find work in the industry. The other goal is to help crèches find the right candidates to look after the children under their care.
Recruiter observations: Recruiters create the same kind of account as jobseekers. Despite having created a recruiter account, it came up as a candidate account. If that should happen, you’ll have to contact the team.
Jobseeker observations: If you just want to apply to job offers, then you don’t need an account because you are usually redirected to a different page to apply. If you want to appear in the CV database, then you can upload your CV but you have to fill out a form. It’s less tedious than some forms though.
The job offers: There are currently 2 531 job offers on the site, but some of them are a year old.
Reactivity: The team answers very quickly and they are very friendly. There is no contact number in the contact information, but you can find one in the “mentions légales” (the legal disclaimer).
Special features: The app; the interactive map; job alerts; the “salaries in crèches” observation paper (which was started two years ago – very detailed, in French); the advice column (including how to open your own crèche, upcoming events, career and training advice, etc. in French); the views on the articles; the job sheets (in “métiers” – this includes the definition, the studies, the salary and the career evolution); the best jobs (3 out of 4 are vacancies at CrechEmploi); the visibility options; the extra search engine (for keywords anywhere on the website).
Verdict: CrechEmploi has a cute design, which is bound to appeal to anyone working with children. It’s easy to use to look for work/candidates in a specific location or in all of France. The blog articles and job sheets are also a big plus for anyone who wants to learn more about the industry. Definitely worth checking out!
