Review:

The RSB job board gives employers access to a niche network of top-notch biologists, ecologists, and science-focused professionals at all career levels throughout the U.K. The platform is hosted by the Royal Society of Biology and allows members to post jobs at discounted rates.

While the job board offers resume searches and featured listings for maximum visibility, it lacks certain key hiring tools, such as job ad distribution and applicant tracking tools. Its plans are also costlier than competitors EuroScienceJobs and N2 Talent.

Pros:

  • Employers can use the RSB job board to advertise a wide variety of biology-related vacancies in the local job market.
  • RSB members receive discounted rates on all job posting plans.
  • The job board offers a bulk job posting plan for companies hiring at scale.
  • Employers can browse the platform's CV database for suitable candidates.
  • Listings can be highlighted and featured on the site's home page, or added to the top of job search results.
  • There is a banner advertising option for employers wanting to display their company profile more prominently.
  • Employers can manage their job posts and vacancy applications from a user-friendly online dashboard.

Cons:

  • The RSB job board does not offer a free job posting plan.
  • The platform is costlier than several niche alternatives.
  • Listings aren't distributed to other job boards.
  • The platform lacks applicant tracking tools and candidate matching services.

RSB Job Board vs. N2 Talent:

While the RSB job board primarily advertises biology positions, N2 Talent caters to talent in the life science, technology, and engineering sectors. At £295.00 per post, N2 Talent is more affordable than the RSB job board's starting price of £410.00 +VAT per member post and £550.00 +VAT for nonmembers. Both sites offer an online employer dashboard.

RSB Job Board vs. New Scientist Jobs:

The RSB job board and New Scientist Jobs both list science-focused roles and offer featured listings for added reach. However, the former stands out with a searchable CV database. While the RSB job board charges £410.00 +VAT per member post and £550.00 +VAT for nonmembers, a 30-day listing on New Scientist Jobs costs £599.00 +VAT.

RSB Job Board vs. EuroScienceJobs:

Compared to the RSB job board's starting price of £410.00 +VAT per member post and £550.00 +VAT for nonmembers, EuroScienceJobs offers a free job posting plan for nonprofits and has a starting price of €680.00 +VAT per post. Both platforms offer featured listings, but EuroScienceJobs stands out with a built-in ATS.
