Ofir.dk is a job portal for both job seekers and companies looking for something new. It has been very popular in Denmark since1996, when Ofir.dk was the first job portal in the country.
It is continually adapting to the needs of the users and evolving to include unique and accurate search facilities that make the user experience convenient and to provide accurate and detailed information.
The thinking behind Ofir.dk job board is that the more information you share, the greater the possibility that you will find the right job and for the company to hire the right employee.
Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: In 1996, Ofir was the first job board in Denmark. It is owned by MatchWork A/S, which also owns some other internet portals in Denmark, including two in real estate. The “About Us” section offers clear information about the history of the company (until 2015) and the team. As for their social media, they have 9 707 followers on Linkedin and 7 666 on Facebook. Even before being a job board, Ofir gave recruiting advice to Danish companies as early as 1978! If you are wondering about the name, Ofir is also a mythical mountain mentioned in the Bible and famous for its wealth. It might be the most popular job board in Denmark, it still gets 476 240 hits a month. More key figures about their company (like the number of CVS) are available in the employer section.
Design: The search bar in two parts (keywords and location, one of the two needs to be filled out) appears at the top of the page. The app is advertised as are some (rather old) blog articles. The rest of the tools (CV writing, application help, interview advice, etc.) all lead to the blog. Once in the job listing, the filters are the industry, the country, the region, the city and the type of contract. Some job offers are featured in gold, some in silver and the others are white (to understand the different features, see the pricing information). You can also use the “job presentations” to find the right job (even if the results aren’t all that accurate). There is a lot of freedom when it comes to the job offers so some are very long, others are very short. Similar jobs appear under the job offer and you are usually redirected to apply. Since there are expiry dates on the job offers, it's safe to say the offers are updated.
The job board objective: Ofir was the first job board in Denmark. By using Ofir, jobseekers have a better chance of finding a mountain of wealth.
Recruiter observations: It’s very confusing to have everything in Danish. To request information about posting an advert, you need a Danish postcode. We would recommend calling the website directly.
Jobseeker observations: It’s easy to create an account (you don’t even need a CV) but you are redirected to the company page for most job offers so doesn’t make a huge different whether or not you have an account.
The job offers: 7 860 job offers (mostly in the capital). Transport & production is by far the most popular category.
Special features: job alerts; the job presentations (which then lead to a search by region, depending on where the offers are available); the blog (shame the featured articles are years old).
Verdict: An English version would be greatly appreciated, at least for the recruiter page. The website is easy to use nonetheless (if you speak Danish). More updated content would also be appreciated.
