Review:

Founded in 2004, Changeboard had over 15 years of HR recruitment experience. The platform gave employers access to a specialized audience of over 250,000 HR professionals and featured a number of job posting plans and bulk packages to suit different recruitment needs.

The website received roughly 60,000 views each month from around the world, which made it a valuable resource for employers looking to fill HR roles in a range of industries. However, the platform was costlier than most competitors and lacked advanced hiring features, such as job board syndication and candidate matching tools.

Pros:

  • Changeboard was a niche job board that gave employers access to over 250,000 HR professionals.
  • Employers could choose to have branded job posts to help attract candidates.
  • Changeboard featured multiple job posting plans to suit different hiring needs.
  • Employers could add screening questions to job posts to help filter applicants.
  • The site featured an extensive CV database of over 50,000 candidates.
  • Employers received a discount with the bulk job posting packages.
  • Job seekers could filter jobs by location, industry, job level, and specialization to connect with suitable employers.
  • The platform offered a number of learning programs, bespoke events, webinars, and industry news articles.

Cons:

  • There was no free job posting option.
  • Job posts were not promoted on the platform's social media channels.
  • The platform was costlier than competitors, such as HRCrossing and Reed.co.uk.
  • Job ads were not syndicated to other job boards or partner websites.

Changeboard vs. HRCrossing:

HRCrossing is a niche HR job board similar to Changeboard. HRCrossing offers a free job posting option, whereas Changeboard only offered paid plans from £700.00 +VAT per job post. HRCrossing uses over 100 researchers to match employers with qualified applicants, offering customers a more bespoke recruitment solution.

Changeboard vs. Reed.co.uk:

Reed.co.uk is one of the U.K.'s largest career sites, but it is a general job board, whereas Changeboard specialized in HR recruitment, which made it a better option for targeted hiring. Reed.co.uk allows employers to add screening questions to job posts and is more affordable than Changeboard was.
