2017 is the year of the decade: a decade of growth, together. During this time, we’ve been able to manage millions of job offers from the leading job exchanges and employment agencies in the countries where we operate, and perfected our search systems to help you find your ideal job.
We’ve grown and we’ll keep on growing! We currently operate in 28 countries around the world, because we don’t want your job search to meet any barriers. That’s also why we keep on improving and implementing new features on the JobisJob app (available for IOS and Android): to help you find work where you want, when you want. You just need to decide where to click.
We’re a team and also a community that is always at your disposal. The JobisJob Forum allows you to share your doubts and experiences, because we want you to be happy at work and not let problems hold you back.
As a job search engine, processing millions of job offers over these 10 years has placed us in a unique position to detect job market trends. Job Market Insights is an exciting project that has established itself this year as a big data tool capable of offering precise, cross-sectoral and customised analysis of the job market to both the leading recruitment agencies and job seekers alike.
10 years together: the year of the decade. Thank you for moving forward with us. JobisJob may be a job search engine, but our engine is you.
In a previous article, we declared that the work-life balance is a thing of the past and that businesses will soon have to adjust to the work-flex requirements of Generation Y. This doesn’t mean, of course, that balancing one’s work and leisure hours will become any less important. On the contrary, the work-life balance will continue to be a significant issue for employees and companies alike. It is simply the case that clear boundaries between one’s professional and private life are no longer particularly realistic in the digital age.
Offices of the future will also adapt to these new circumstances; in fact, there are already a number of workplaces that have long ceased to resemble the traditional office of the past and instead look more like private living rooms or spa retreats. For digital nomads, coworking spaces have sprung up in metropolises across the globe, while those working from home can make the most of garden offices – spots that could hardly be more practical or appealing. We especially like these office trends of the future:
Coworking spaces are communal offices rented predominantly by freelancers, start-ups and creative types. Such venues for temporary coworking can now be found in virtually all the big cities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland; Berlin, for example, even has a few hundred.
The KantoorKaravaan project hails from the Netherlands, and offers office and conference rooms in attractive natural settings. It hires out office space either outdoors and/or in renovated caravans. But it’s not just nature-loving freelancers who can book a workspace with KantoorKaravaan; companies too can rent KantoorKaravaan for workshops, seminars or work weeks.
Continuing with our series of articles about the sector trends in the UK at JobisJob we now analyse the evolution of the Health sector. As in the previous article about the IT-Telecomm sector, we will be focusing on the jobseeker’s interest and the job vacancies posted between March and May of 2017.
Looking back, we can see how over the years globalisation has transformed cultural identities, consumption patterns and employment. Today’s citizens buy and sell things over the internet, connect with people from all over the world and adopt blurred, global identities rather than the strong national identities of the past.
In the face of this global and homogenising trend, the local is asserting its position and importance as a guarantee of authenticity and uniqueness. Local agents are taking advantage of the space of flows and organising themselves around self-management processes, virtual networking and pop-up stores, increasing their scope to levels that were previously impossible. At JobisJob we are going to analyze this trend for the transformation of the local into a global phenomenon and, in order to better understand it, we will be interviewing Alexandra Cánovas and Martaé Martinez from Las CulpaSS (The Guilt), a growing fashion brand that is leading the way with its products “sewn with rage and care” for the world.
Nowadays the importance of digital skills is beyond all possible doubt. Since computer science began surrounding us, the number of these skills required by companies has increased dramatically. Recruiters use social media to look for candidates and people search jobs on job boards. Digital Networking has overcome traditional methods and NGO’s use it to promote their activity. Digitalization has changed every single aspect of our lives.
Governments are aware of this and have carried out programmes to develop digital skills among the population, but… what’s the current state of this situation? We interviewed Gabriel Brezoiu, General Manager of the Group of the European Youth for Change (GEYC) and asked him about his work helping young people develop their digital skills.

In his own words, GEYC is a Romanian established organisation active at European level. We are empowering young people to create a positive change in their community by taking advantage of the digital tools.
