Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: HeadHunter was founded by Mikhail Frolkin and Yuri Virovets in 2000 in Russia. The Ukrainian version appeared in 2005. Originally, the site was for recruiters looking for candidates, before coming a multipurpose job board. Not quite as present on social media as the Russian version, HH.ua has 19 903 followers on Facebook, 1 743 on Twitter, 95 on Youtube and 2 000 on Linkedin. In the Ukraine, HeadHunter attracts about 1.33 million views a month, making it one of the top five most visited job boards the country! Unfortunately, the site is only partially translated into English but it is also available in Ukrainian and Russian.
Design: When you first open the site, it can be a bit confusing to have the login form featured more than the search engine (keywords in CVs, job offers or company names). You can post a CV or a job offer directly from the homepage, or check out the featured jobs and companies (the number of offers are in brackets). The rest of the page is full of lists: articles, different sectors, different cities and different job titles. Once in the job listing, the filters include the region, the salary, the industry, the company branch, the work experience, the employment type, the work schedule and any exclusions (including disability friendly jobs). Without even opening the offers, you can show the contact details of those that have some. The salary is clearly indicated in the listing if the recruiter has provided a range. To sort the offers, you have the date, the salary and the relevance. As a rule, the job offers aren’t very long and they are just standard posts, which include a logo. Similar job offers appear under an open one. As for the company pages, there is a description of the company and a logo, but no additional branding.
The job board objective: HeadHunter Ukraine has brought the same simple job board design to the Ukraine so that recruiters and jobseekers alike can find what they need.
Recruiter observations: To register as a recruiter, you need to select your country from a list. Through the recruiter account, you can access a chat window, but it isn’t in English. You need a phone number to create an account. If you already have one on a different HeadHunter portal, you won’t be able to create a second one. When creating an advert, the website can provide salary data for a given position in a given city to help choose the salary. Adverts are present on the site for no longer than 30 days.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account.
The job offers: There are 11 939 job offers and 1 252 854 resumes. Sales, IT and marketing have the most job offers, by far.
Reactivity: The team calls within the hour if you request a call back.
Special features: The “I want to work for you” button; the news; the articles; the holiday calendar; the tests (recruiters can create); the courses for recruiters; the career advice test (at a cost); the feedback options; job alerts; the Youtube videos; the app; the CV highlighting options (at a cost).
Verdict: The absence of an “About us” section or a contact form are a bit disappointing. That said, the site is quite successful thanks to its appealing interface and easy-to-navigate design.
