Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Operating since 2015, The Execjobs IrishTimes job board targets executives and anyone looking for an executive position. Like the Guardian, their job board is powered by Madgex software so it’s not surprising to see some similarities between the two. Both job boards distinguish “browsing” and “searching” for example (if you include the location). Unfortunately, the visibility is unknown but there is a Twitter account with regular updates and 456 followers.
Design: The homepage is clear, with only one image of a conference room. A picture says a thousand words and that one expresses exactly what the job board has to offer: executive jobs. Below that, you can use the search engine (keywords, location, radius), the job categories or the featured sections (featured jobs or featured recruiters – who are recruiting) to access the job listing. For a more specific job search, the filters include the location (and radius), the sector, the position/level, the salary, the contract type, the hours, the recruiter type. Featured jobs appear in orange. All the filter information, as well as the expiry date, appear in the job offer on the left-hand side. There is also a logo and a description of the job and company. Similar jobs appear on the right-hand side. It is also possible to look through the recruiter pages.
The job board objective: A certain kind of person reads the IrishTimes. The website recognizes that, and provides job offers targeting that audience.
Recruiter observations: It’s easy to create an account (and you can tick a “VAT exempt” box for those without a VAT number). To post on the IrishTimes, the position needs to have a salary exceeding € 70 000 (but the salary does not appear in the advert, if you don’t want it to). You can choose how you receive applications and it’s very easy to post with your offers. According to the staff, there is no CV database, but the information on the website seems to tell a different story. Even if there aren’t any photos of the team handling the adverts, there are photos of the columnists.
Jobseeker observations: It’s very easy to create an account, but you actually don’t need one to apply to job offers.
The job offers: 52 job offers are currently available on the website, and they are all for current vacancies.
Reactivity: They answer very quickly.
Special features: job alerts; the blog; the newspaper articles; “VAT exempt” box.
Verdict: If you are looking for an executive position on Ireland, or you are advertising for one, the IrishTimes is clear and easy-to-use. Just make sure your job offer fits the requirements.
