Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: As the name implies, OuestFrance Emploi (West France Job) focuses on the West side of France, which covers Bretagne, the Pays de la Loire, Normandie, Poitou-Charentes and Finistère, Ille, Vilaine, Morbihan and Loire Atlantique. Oddly enough though, the website also have job offers from other places in France. It actually belongs to a much bigger group call the OuestFrance Multimedia group, which has been around for 32 years! They also own the OuestFrance, OuestFrance Entreprises, OuestFrance Immo, etc. Basically, it’s a big group. At the moment, this particular national job board has 12 721 Facebook followers, 1 895 on Twitter and some interesting new content coming out (including the CVs of the month – lets home the trend continues). As for the visibility, it receives 726 010 views per month.
Design: On this website, it’s all about picking standouts. They have a featured city (with an image and the number of offers in that city), they have featured CVs, and featured articles. If you can’t see everything, just see the monthly pick. There are additional sections to help jobseekers better understand certain professions (like the sector folders and job sheets). In the job listing, the filters (the date, the type of contract, the experience, the level of studies, the location and “labels” – handicapped) remain under the search bar. The logo is visible next to the job offers, but there isn’t any particular branding when you open the job offer. The relevant job sheets appear next to the description. A lot of the companies recruiting with OuestFrance Emploi are recruiting firms.
The job board objective: The job board focuses on the West of France (in theory), and spreads all the relevant job offers to jobseekers looking for jobs in the area.
Recruiter observations: The recruiter page is slightly “greyer” than the jobseeker one and it provides information about packages. You can sign in through the website but you cannot register. You need to call the team so that they can create it for you.
Jobseeker observations: It’s very easy to create an account on the website. If you apply to a job, the cover letter is already written for you and the CV saved automatically to your account. If you are redirected to a company or recruiter page, you don’t need to create an account.
The job offers: There are 41 627 job offers. 432 of them are urgent (and can be found in the “urgent” category), but they do not provide information on the different job sector categories.
Special features: job alerts; the jobseeker blog (which recently started up again); the recruiter blog; the CVs of the month; the job sheets (with the number of people recruited for a given position, the average salary, how to look for work in that particular position and how your career can evolve); the sector folders (funerary is featured at the moment).
Verdict: It’s a bit strange that a job board, which provides so much information about different jobs should not have job sector categories, but maybe that’s intentional. You can do some interesting reading on this job board, and it’s nice to have access to a (small) number of CVs. Even if you can advertise for cities not in the West of France, we don’t recommend it.
