Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Created in 2007, Security Cleared Jobs is a specialist job board, which belongs to SATOS Media. The parent company specialises in security, cyber security and policing, so he runs a couple of job boards, events and training courses. The current director is Sean Symth. On social media, the following is small, but the site is a niche job board: 1 411 followers on Twitter, 596 on Facebook and 9 454 on LinkedIn. As for the visibility in numbers, Security Cleared Jobs attracts 62 380 views a month, which isn’t half bad for a niche job board, specialising in national security.
Design: The colour scheme is mostly blue and white. You can use the search engine (keywords, the location and the radius) or browse different categories (including the clearance level). As you scroll down, the page displays featured jobs, featured recruiters (who are all hiring) and the latest news from their blog. At the bottom of the page, there’s a brief summary of the company and access to the recruiter page. As a Madgex job board, the job listing includes featured job offers (in blue) and filters on the left-hand side: the location, the clearance level, the sector, the job role, the salary band, the job type and the recruiter type. Different browsing and searching options are available. The job title, salary information, location, countdown (if the offer is expiring soon) and company name can be seen without opening an offer. More useful information appears on the left-hand side (like the publication and expiry dates) once it has been opened. Finally, you can look through the different recruiters and companies (in alphabetical order). You can even use the small search engine to find a specific one or to view only recruiters or only direct employers, but there aren’t any company pages.
The job board objective: Security Cleared Jobs presents different security related professions and events in one place to improve the hiring in that field.
Recruiter observations: It’s easy for recruiters to create an account and order an advert online. If you don’t have a VAT number, you can tick “VAT exempt”.
Jobseeker observations: Jobseekers can request a CV review from TopCV for free when creating their account. It is also possible to alter the CV visibility (and you can exclude specific recruiters). There is a very detailed online CV to fill out with a focus on the current role and the new role.
The job offers: There are currently 2 241 jobs on the website, most of which are in defence and IT.
Reactivity: The team answers quickly and they are friendly.
Special features: The job of the week; job alerts; the out-of-date event guide; the events website (expo); the blog; the visibility options (excluding specific recruiters); the “Get Security Cleared” section.
Verdict: Security Cleared Jobs is an easy-to-use job board with interesting (updated) job offers. If you have worked on a Madgex job board before, then you will have no trouble navigating your way around this one. More branding would be appreciated
