We like to keep on top of what’s happening out there in the funny old world, we call “Recruitment Land”, as we know you guys do too. And just one of ways we like to do this, is to keep up-to-date with the visitor statistics of various job boards around the globe.
So, today we’re checking out who’s hot and who’s not in our list of the Top 10 UK Job Boards in 2016 and comparing what’s changed since 2015.
No change at the very top for Indeed who claim the top spot for the third year running since we’ve been compiling this list. However, Reed has relinquished second place to newcomer Directgov, the official UK job center website, meaning that both TotalJobs and CV-Library also got nudged down a place. Jobsite.co.uk climbs one place to number 6, overtaking Monster – the second year running that Monster has dropped in the rankings. The most noticeable drop in the rankings however, is Fiverr.com (used by freelancers) which, after entering the list with a bang at number 4 last year, fell to 9th place in 2016. We welcomed one newcomer onto the list this year in jobs.ac.uk, the leading international job board for careers in academic, research, science and related professions. Meanwhile, TES.co.uk, and CWJobs.co.uk dropped out of the Top 10 completely.
Other job boards that didn’t make this year’s Top 10 included: Fish4.co.uk, Careerbuilder.co.uk, Caterer.com (for hospitality professionals), RetailChoice.com (for retail professionals), jobs.co.uk and LondonJobs.co.uk.
