Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Created in 2008, Niche Jobs LTd founded three different Healthcare related job boards in England and one in Ireland. Socialcare is a national specialist job board for social workers. The page layout is particularly attractive and, unlike the partner websites, the social media is updated (on Facebook, there are 9 027 followers; 3 009 on Twitter and on Linkedin). The website gets 86 060 hits a month. All four job boards have a pinkish colour scheme and similar logos. The design for all four websites is also the same.
Design: The first image you see on the homepage is of a smiling coloured nurse. As you scroll down the page, large images are featured for each new section. It aims to show how “people orientated” the website is, which makes sense for a healthcare job board. To access the jobs, you can use the search engine (keywords and location), the grid of categories, the recommended jobs or the company listing (in alphabetical order). In fact, you can choose to see only direct employers or only recruitment agencies (there are twice as many recruiters as direct employers). The information for each job offer is clear and the filter (the sector, location, job level, job type and hours) help find exactly what you want. Featured job offers appear in pink, expiry dates are visible once a job offer has been opened and similar jobs appear at the bottom. As for the company pages, there is a description of the company, a logo and job offers.
The job board objective: The idea is to put English (or Irish) jobseekers in contact with the right nursing jobs.
Recruiter observations: You can either get in contact with the team over the phone on with an inquiry e-mail, or you can order your job slot online (you create an account to do so).
Jobseeker observations: To create an account, you need to create an online CV, which is simple enough. The questions include your registration and registration number. When you apply to a job offer, the website creates the candidate e-mail for you and you just have to send it off.
The job offers: There are 6 750 job offers. RGN nurses and mental health nurses are most in demand.
Special features: The blog; job alerts; pulse nursing; the videos; CV examples; the funny tweets.
Verdict: The website is definitely easy to use for both recruiters and jobseekers. If you’re a nurse, you’ll appreciate the appealing design and clear information on Nurses.
