Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: Ian Partington, the CEO and founder of the SimplyJobs job boards, is behind the SimplyLawJobs niche job board in the UK. It was created in 2009 and it focuses on sales jobs (as the name indicates). The recruitment page has a very direct advertisement approach: “No really, we are the best”. You have to admire their directness. The website includes statistics on other law job boards to back up the claims (but TotallyLegal isn’t on mentioned). On social media, the site has a small group of followers: 728 on Linkedin, 2 937 on Twitter and 4 349 on Facebook. About 55 200 visits are recorded on SimilarWeb every month, most of which are from the UK. Keep reading to learn more about the good and the bad on SimplyLawJobs.
Design: The dominant colour is navy blue and the homepage has a chess game image backdrop. The page is mostly made up of different groups of jobs: jobs of the week, latest jobs, popular searches and featured employers. Moreover, the featured employers are really hiring. To access the job listing, you can use the groups or the search engine (keywords and the location). From there, you can use the filters (the location, the job category, the salary band, the company benefits, the job types, the company type, the sector and the last updates – with the number of offers per category in brackets) to cull the job offers. Featured jobs appear on the right-hand side and similar jobs appear next to the open job offer with easy-to-use scroll buttons. Finally, there are expiry dates (indicated above the offer), which is always reassuring when unsure about how the offers are updated.
The job board objective: SimplyLawJobs hopes to make it simple to find jobs in sales, and sales professionals.
Recruiter observations: The prices are available on the site. To create your job advert, you can try a free demo through the site but you have to contact the team to do so. You can also purchase a package online and just fill out some basic information about yourself and the company.
Jobseeker observations: To apply to job offers, you need an account.
The job offers: There are 5 816 job offers on the website. An overwhelming number of them are for solicitor jobs, followed by associate jobs. Most of them offer between £30K and £60K.
Reactivity: There is a chat window on the recruiter page. The team answers quickly and they are very friendly.
Special features: The falling snow theme for winter; the blog (with three distinct categories); the flexible work survey; clear GDPR info; chat support; the CV advice; the survey on job searching; the very specific filters and subcategories; your recently viewed jobs; job alerts; the partner aggregators; the jobseeker journey (explaining the jobseeker to recruiters).
Verdict: It’s really nice to see so many different filters and subcategories to help users find what they need. The team answers quickly, the visibility is reasonable and the content is updated.
