Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Launched in 2001 as a service to help European Affairs jobseekers find listings of all the actual jobs in EU Affairs, EuroBrussels has since branched out to offer even more services. In addition to this EuroJobSites, you have BrusselJobs (for local jobs), EuroScienceJobs and EuroEngineerJobs. The traffic has remained relatively steady over the past few years at 222 160 visits a month (with only 35% of those coming from Belgium). This is indeed a particularly international job board. On social media, there are 6670 members on LinkedIn, 5 175 followers on Twitter (just a list of offers) and another 18 862 on Facebook. In 2010, the CV database was created, enabling recruiters to source candidates. Most candidates are European professionals who work in law, politics, economies and communication in Brussels or want to.
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 (sector, experience, 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 190 jobs on the site. Most of them are in research & innovation, external relations and development aid and environment. Half of the offers are in Belgium. If you choose to upload your CV, you’ll need to indicate your notice period, experience and education information, a phone number and a desired salary.
Special features: Testimonials; job alert; the feedback options; key figures about the site audience; the list of courses; the newsletter; the self-evaluation guide; the list of partner websites in the footer.
Verdict: If you work for any type of European institution or if you are hiring for one, EuroBrussels is a good place to start to find work, find candidates or advertise positions. More branding would be a plus.
