What are the most popular job boards in Belgium?

VDAB in full: Vlaamse Dienst voor Arbeidsbemiddeling en Beroepsopleiding is the employment service of Flanders and the number one job board in Belgium. VDAB helps the Belgian labour market by providing thousands of jobs, handy online tools, training or guidance when a Belgian is looking for work.

An additional interesting fact about the Belgian labour market is that Belgians are obliged to register with VDAB as soon as they leave school and live in Flanders or when they want to qualify for unemployment benefit. An additional feature of enrollment is the fact that assignments must be carried out on a compulsory basis.

Belgian versus international job boards

Half of the top 10 Belgian job boards are filled with Belgian companies. The other half is international with Indeed being the first major international party, followed by Stepstone.com, Monster.com, LinkedIn.com and Randstad.com. Remarkable among the top 10 job boards in Belgium, a bilingual country, is that there are only two French job boards to be found: Leforem.be and References.be.  

How to distinguish yourself?

In a market with a high demand it is of great importance to know where to find the right candidate. In a market where there is one dominant leader it seems more logic to place your vacancy there. Finding the right channel is important and one part of your recruitment strategy. If you know the motives that add up to the candidate experience from your target group this can be of great value in which you can distinguish yourself. Perhaps also from your competitors. If you would like to know more details about your target group, then the European Recruitment Dashboard from Intelligence Group is the recruitment tool to bring your recruitment game to the next level.
