Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Green Jobs is part of a group of environment focused job boards (listed in the footer) and it is based in Ireland. Founded in 2008 by Jonathan Kyle (who has worked on a number of other sites in the past), the specialist job board attracts about 62 620 views a month and works hand in hand with the other partner job sites for more exposure of the job offers. There are a number of social media pages, but no direct links to them on the site (only links to follow them), which can make it difficult to just view the social media. There are other job boards with the same name. That said, we did find their social media pages: there are 7 647 followers on Facebook, 3 538 on Twitter (which is full of job offers) and 3 818 on Linkedin.
Design: None of the group’s websites have a logo for the tab, but the pages are quite appealing. The Green Jobs site has a backdrop image of a female engineer working behind the search engine just for keywords (the enter button is on the left and not the right). Unsurprisingly, the dominant colour is a bright green. From the homepage, you can browse the job offers by different categories, see the new offers, visit the featured employer pages (some of which aren’t hiring) and read about the company. Once in the job listing, all the useful information (job type, region, job category, vicinity, salary and posted date) is visible even without opening the offers. If you search for a job, you have the following filters: industry sector, job category, region and vicinity. If you browse, the site shows the same filters, but it includes the number of job offers in the top subcategories. In the recruiter list, you can see the number of job offers for each company and the logos. Finally, the offers have expiry dates, which means they are updated.
The job board objective: Green Jobs has made it easy to find the environmental jobs in one convenient place.
Recruiter observations: Job offers appear on partner websites too. Recruiters can’t create an account without first contacting the team through the inquiry sheet, which includes questions about the type of job posting.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account, but it isn’t necessary to apply to offers. You simply send your CV and a message (which the website writes for you) to the company.
The job offers: There are 425 job offers on the site. Most of the jobs are in consultancy and environmental engineering.
Reactivity: The team answers very quickly, but they prefer to talk over the phone.
Special features: The selected jobs options; the browser compatibility test; testimonials; the partner list (broken down into different sectors); the job index (with all of the job offers for each subcategory); the link to the CV writing service; the blog (which all the partner websites share); the newsletter.
Verdict: The name says it all: Green Jobs is for anyone looking to work in a field, which will let them improve the environment. Even if recruiters must contact the team to publish job offers, which is always a drawback, the reactivity is good.
