6 Reasons Why Niche Job Boards Are Incredible

Why Should You Use A Niche Job Board?

Geospatial Jobs is a niche jobs board, visited by geospatial professionals, who are looking for the next step in their career. 

You might be wondering – Why should I use a niche job board? Surely a large generic job website is the best place to advertise my vacancy?

Short Answer – No

Now I appreciate this answer may be biased, however here are 6 very compelling reasons why niche job boards such as Geospatial Jobs, are the best way to find the right person for your company.

1. Save Time (Quality Over Quantity)

The largest generic jobs websites receive millions of visitors. Your job will no doubt be seen by a lot of people and receive a lot of applications.  What’s wrong with that?

As  larger websites are visited by people of all professions and backgrounds, you may well  receive a lot of irrelevant or unqualified applications. You can end up looking for a needle in a haystack of resumes. Your time is valuable and I’m sure there are better things you can be doing for your business than reading CV after CV after CV.

Whilst Geospatial Jobs receives fewer visitors the people coming here are interested in the Geospatial sector. They are most likely the type of person you are looking for and they can’t wait to hear about the job opening at your company.

Less is more – receive applications from people who are genuinely interested in working in the geospatial sector and save time.

Less Is More Save Time And Use A Niche Job Board

2. Incredible Value

The value offered by Geospatial Jobs really is amazing. To start with you can post a job for free – no strings attached. Compare this with advertising your job on certain generic job websites, which can cost over £100 to post a single job.

We place purpose before profit. We genuinely want to help grow the geospatial sector and help people to find work which they love – not try and maximise our profits.

Furthermore our Featured and Premium job listings offer some outstanding features:

  • Job advertised around the website and featured on our social media and email.
  • We will write an article about your company.
  • We provide a 1-2-1 phone call to help you write the perfect job advert.

Purpose Before Profit

3. Personal

Sometimes you just need to get in touch with a human. That’s why I give you my email when you post a job. There’s no need to talk to a chat-bot or go through a call centre, you just get straight through to me and I can most of the time help you out there and then.
