Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Exec Appointments is a specialist job board attached to the Financial Times. The target audience is anyone from around the world looking for an executive position. In fact, the site has such a global outreach that only 54% of the traffic comes from the UK, and the other 46% comes from a number of different countries. It attracts 89 270 visitors a month, which isn’t bad. On social media, there are 20 800 followers on Twitter and 1 346 on LinkedIn. The jobs are also published in the Financial Times every Thursday according to the site.
Design: As a Madgex job board, the design is very user-friendly. The search engine (keywords, location and radius) is featured at a relatively low level on the homepage, just under an image of business people in front of a skyscrapers. This means users see the image, contact information and different services first. Below, there are three panels (sector, position/level and location) to choose a category and start your job search. The featured companies really are hiring, which is always good news. Articles and featured jobs can also be accessed directly from the homepage. In the job listing, the filters (position, location, responsibilities, sector, salary band, contract type, language and recruiter type) appear on the left-hand side (and include the number of job offers for each category if you are browsing). The salary, logo and publication/expiry date are visible for each offer in the listing. An open job offer has a standard layout, with useful information on the left-hand (which includes expiry dates). There is also a company listing, which displays the logo and number of current job offers. The page layouts are standardised, including a description and a list of job offers.
The job board objective: As a site targeting CEOs, CFOs, Directors and Senior Executives, Exec Appointments must maintain a high level of professionalism for recruiters and jobseekers.
Recruiter observations: Prices are online and recruiters can order through the site almost effortlessly. If you would like something catered to your recruitment needs or if you would like to browse the CV database (of 450 000 CVs), you must contact the team.
