Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Pracuj.pl, one of the job boards in the Group Pracuj, has been around for 18 years, along with its Ukrainian counterpart Rabota.ua. It was founded by Przemek Gacek.The Group also use eRecruiter and Emplo (HR companies) to improve their recruiting strategy/advice. On the Parcuj.pl website, you can see a long list of partner websites and on Goldenline, their employees feedback is most positive. Not only that, Parcuj is Poland’s most visited job board with a steady 10.42 million visits a month! This is below what it was a few years ago but the sanitary crisis is largely responsible. They have 3 279 Twitter followers (but no Twitter link) and their news sections are updated regularly. On Facebook, they have 387 540 followers, 18 500 followers on YouTube and 7 318 followers on Instagram. So, let us tell you what makes Parcuj so great!
Design: The website is mostly white with a professional dark blue logo. The images that appear behind the search engine (keywords and location) are darkish to reduce the brightness of the page usually, but at the moment they have cute images from their campaign. Underneath, you have a recommended job section (empty unless you have an account), two recommended companies at a time (a lot are not hiring) and the daily offers. They also include a "popular searches" section. With the current employment environment, the site has opted to feature remote work and you can find those offers from the homepage. If you click on “first job”, you automatically get internships and assistant jobs. To sort the job offers, the filters are the location, the industry, the employer, the type of contract, the level of the job, the salary, the required languages and the publication date. All the categories have the number of available jobs in brackets. They emphasise their app (available on 3 different app stores). Company profiles are available (with customised backdrops, a company logo, information about the company, the job offers, the locations, the perks, possible courses, photos, links to the social media, the hiring process, news and a map) which are relatively standardised. Even if a company has no job offers, their profile is not deleted (the number of job offers is visible before opening the page). When you are on the job list, you can see filters (sector, work type, type of contract, education level) above the offers and they include boxes to tick for remote recruitment and remote jobs. You can also add a desired salary and add information into the search engine (keywords, location, radius).
The job board objective: With the help of Pracuj, everyone can be professional. Helping candidates improve their image and companies highlight their brand.
Recruiter observations: You need a Polish Identification number, a Polish phone number and a Polish postcode to create an account. There is a discount for new customers. There is a lot of useful information about things like the different Polish contracts (with the advantages and disadvantages for each). They have an international department that deals with foreign customers.
Jobseeker observations: The website offers a CV creator option, which is great (you can even download your CV in a PDF or Doc format) and you can download cover letters (customised to correspond to specific fields and available in a number of languages). The information is then automatically saved to your profile. When your account is created, Pracuj offers a tour of the dashboard to help you use it. Furthermore, you can alter your CV visibility at any time. They even have a salary calculator, which breaks down your pay so you know your net/gross pay, pension and taxes depending on your contract (and you know how much your employer pays).
The job offers: There are currently over 80 000 available jobs, and most of them are in sales, customer service and manual work.
Reactivity: They answered very quickly and were very helpful.
Special features: The blog (in Polish); the job alerts; CV creator; CV visibility options; salary information; mobile app; the cute YouTube videos; TV campaign; salary comparator.
Verdict: Pracuj is a great for learning about the Polish work legislation and for improving your online image (for jobseekers and recruiters). You should definitely consider using their job board to attract candidates. Since we've known them, we've seen them adapt to the changing times and now, their added "remote" filter is proof of this.
