Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: EuroScienceJobs belongs to the EuroJobSites (others in the group are listed at the bottom of the page). Founded and managed by Lars Peter Svane (in Belgium) since 2006, the specialist job boards focus on key areas of the job market across Europe. This one focuses on science professionals. It attracts 97 350 views per month, which is a slight drop compared to a few months ago. Most of the views come from India, followed by France, the US, Turkey and Portugal. On social media, the posts are just job offers on Facebook for the 4 377 followers and the same approach is used on Twitter for 1 029 followers. On LinkedIn, the company has a group and a EuroJobSites page (with 525 followers).
Design: The focus of the EuroScienceJobs job board is solely on the job search. The search engine (keywords and the location) suggests keywords to help filter the search and hiring companies (which really are hiring) scroll across the screen. The latest jobs fill up the rest of the homepage (with top jobs appearing on the right-hand side as well). At the bottom of the page, you can also find different lists: jobs by location, jobs by type, jobs by experience. Once in the job listing, jobseekers can use the filters (the category, the location and the experience) to cull the offers. However, you can only view a page of job offers so use the filters wisely. Some job offers are over a month old but from the looks of things, they have optional expiry dates. Featured offers are in blue boxes to attract attention at the top of the list. Job offers are broken down into clear sections and a logo is featured at the top of the page.
The job board objective: EuroScienceJobs has made it possible for science professionals from all over Europe to connect in one place.
Recruiter observations: Different packages are available on the website and you can even post a basic offer for free.
Jobseeker observations: Jobseekers upload their CV to create an account. You can use Facebook or Google to fill in personal details, but the rest of the form must be filled out manually. This includes your studies and if you are willing to relocate. If you have an account on a different EuroJobSite, you don’t need to create a new one. Contact details are often provided or you are redirected.
The job offers: There are currently 267 job offers on the site. Most of them are in the United Kingdom, Germany or Belgium and most of them are in Biology, Maths and Computing or Physics.
Reactivity: The team answered within a few hours.
Special features: The newsletter; the audience demographic chart; job alerts; a couple of testimonials; the feedback options; the guides (including an interview guide, the recruiter guide and personality type guide).
Verdict: EuroScienceJobs is pretty successful, but the top countries viewing the offers are actually not in the Europe. It’s worth checking out what the job board has to offer, especially if you can post for free.
