Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: As the official job site of Reach Plc's network of regional and national news brands including the Daily Mirror, Manchester Evening News, Liverpool Echo and Birmingham Mail, Fish4Jobs can reach a large audience of readers. Created in 1999, the site hopes to offer these readers the most relevant jobs on the market. Fish4Jobs attracts 656 200 visits a month. On social media, there are
82 182 followers on Facebook (nothing new since 2018), 20 800 followers on Twitter (practically nothing since 2018), 8 326 on Instagram and 2 149 on LinkedIn. The different social media is for the main website, but job offers can still be published there.
Design: As a Madgex job board, the design is very user-friendly. The search engine (keywords, location and radius) is featured at eye-level, over an orange backdrop. There are featured jobs, featured companies and featured locations (with images to give you an idea of the place) on the homepage too.. In the job listing, the filters (location, contract type, salary band, sector, hours, job title, recruiter type) appear on the left-hand side (and include the number of job offers for each category if you are browsing). The salary (if provided), logo and publication/expiry date are visible for each offer in the listing. Featured offers are in orange. 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 and the number of jobs for each company (there is even a small search engine to help browse them). The pages are just list of current job offers.
The job board objective: Thanks to a large audience, which reads the many newspapers associate to the job site, Fish4Jobs hopes to reach a maximum number of potential jobseekers.
Recruiter observations: Prices are online, and recruiters can order through the site almost effortlessly. To create an account, you must indicate your postcode.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account.
The job offers: There are currently over 16 000 job offers online. The most popular sectors are education/teaching, travel/tourism, construction & skilled trade and manufacturing/industrial.
Reactivity: The team answers quickly.
Special features: The career advice (nothing new since last year); job alerts; the app; the chat support; CV and cover letter templates.
Verdict: With good visibility and a user-friendly layout, there really is no reason a jobseeker would not use this site. If you suspect your potential candidates read any of the associated newspapers, then you could also consider this site to post adverts.
