Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Ictjob is a specialist job board, focused on IT jobs in Luxembourg (and bordering in countries). Unfortunately, the visibility is unknown but the site continues to update its social media and it works with the Belgium branch (which is where the company first started) to cater to their clients’ needs. The site is available in French, English and Dutch. On social media, the Twitter is full of offers for the 2 600 followers and there is a Linkedin page (148 followers) and a Facebook one (224 followers). The site has been around since 2009 but the original site in Belgium has been around for additional two years.
Design: The dominant colour of the site is orange. The focus of the homepage is getting the job search started. You can use the various search grids (role, development, systems, and business applications) and include a keyword, or you can look for inspiration in the popular searches and/or company logos. Once in the job listing, the filters include the job language, the contract type, the experience, the level of education, the hours (full or part time), the role, the skills and the location. Most of the offers have no particular branding once opened, but there are some with special fonts and/or banners. Similar jobs appear under an opened job offer. Visible publication dates, logos, company names and locations in the listing are always a plus. The offers can be sorted by relevance or date. There are company pages but all that really means is that you can see a list of job offers within the same company (the pages don’t have any additional information).
The job board objective: IctJobs aims to make the job search as direct as possible for IT professionals and recruiters.
Recruiter observations: It is easy for a recruiter to purchase a package online. It is also possible to call the team for a more customised offer.
Jobseeker observations: There are many fields that you are expected to fill out after creating an account (for the online CV). There are also job offers that redirect you to their career page.
The job offers: There are currently 285 job offers, which is a little bit less than last year. Most of the job offers are for developers and analyst programmers. Less than 10 offers are outside of Belgium and none of them are over a month old.
Reactivity: In the contact section, there are photos of the team (the same as the Belgium team). They answer very quickly.
Special features: The CV visibility options; the interactive map on the homepage; the IT courses.
Verdict: The job site is all about finding work. As far as special features go, Ictjob is lacking, without so much as a blog, and very little branding. With low visibility, it’s hard to say whether or not the job board attracts many recruiters/candidates. If Belgium is anything to go on, the site works rather well.
