The 4th of October 2021 a new office opened up its doors with a blue robot as its logo. Jobilla Spain is from now on ready to serve companies in recruiting with its unprecedented way of recruiting in the digital world. Jobilla Belgium and Jobilla France will Follow Oct 25th. Out of 153 softwares, Jobilla is ranked Nr 1 in Europe and Nr 8 in the whole world in recruitment marketing platforms in the world's biggest comparison site G2. From a company that started 2015 this seems to be just the beginning.
Jobilla has already proved itself by getting 52 candidates on our search for good salespeople in Madrid for the Spanish market.
The whole thing started from a regular conversation – as so often most of the good ideas do. Bernhard van Riessen and Joris de Kort were discussing other business opportunities as Jobilla's name came along. It was a value adding innovative recruitment concept that was going to open up in Spain. Joris had already worked in Spain so he had good connections and 23 years of experience in recruitment, and Bernhard had a long successful career of start-up, scale-up, build daily operations and move on.
The Perfect Combination
They had the perfect know-how for the job and Jobilla was intriguing. Besides, they had yet another ace up their sleeve: they decided to ask another experienced entrepreneur and a colleague, Jan de Wachter, to come along and scale up the mission itself: together they could start Jobilla France and Jobilla Belgium along with Jobilla Spain.
We hired 6 and have still more people in our pipeline.
Before summer 2021 they agreed about the initiative plan with Jobilla. To make the final decision they came to Finland to see the company and meet the people. Meeting the owners and the people working at Jobilla convinced the three men to start. "There was really something special in these people", Joris describes. "The owners were humble and listened to everybody."
The candidates get to know their future employer in a very particular, personal way. That makes a very good foundation for the future to work together.
"I love the look and feel of Jobilla", says Jan, the branch manager of Jobilla Belgium and France, "but it's not only that. I love the filosophy of Jobilla. The candidates get to know their future employer in a very particular, personal way. That makes a very good foundation for the future to work together. I used Jobilla too to find people in Belgium and it was a fantastic experience – for them, that's what they told me, and for me. Jobilla is not only AI, it's a very beautiful way of putting people into contact with eachother."
The Best Proof Is Hiring People
The challenges are met with as much experience and trust in the product as enthusiasm.
Jobilla is special in the way that we make the candidates to be the number One.
They launched Jobilla campaigns in Spain to start operating. As we speak, the first days of the new office are behind us and already there is a promising list of new bookings on the way. "I feel very proud opening Jobilla Spain in the middle of the centre of Madrid, a metropol of 5 million people", says Bernhard, branch manager of Jobilla Spain. "At the same time I am very proud to help Spanish companies to grow by finding the right people for them. Jobilla has already proved itself by getting 52 candidates on our search for good salespeople in Madrid for the Spanish market. We hired 6 and have still more people in our pipeline."
"The 1st contact was already a sale, I have never had this before!
For Jan, the branch manager of France and Belgium, the opening is still ahead. He is very excited – next week the people from France and Belgium will gather to start things up. "Since the last 15 years I have been hearing nothing but how hard it is to get people hired. Now, with Jobilla, I am very motivated to help people. The 1st contact was already a sale, I have never had this before!" says Jan seemingly convinced about the new way to recruit people.
For me this is really one of The Solutions.
He sees Jobilla as the new way of matching the perfect candidate to the perfect employer. "Jobilla takes away the miscommunication between the candidate and the employer, for me this is really one of The Solutions."
Joris, in charge of the accounts of Spain, Belgium and France, confesses he feels like a kid in a candy store. A week before opening they were still checking that everything was ready for working and decorating the new office. Now it is full of life.
Making Things Human Again
"Jobilla is special in the way that we make the candidates to be the number One. There are a lot of people in recruiting that are afraid to put themselves into the game. People get a little bit stabbed in the heart when they don't get accepted. That's why we make things a little bit easier for companies and people to speak to each other in a respectful way. We'll make things a little bit more personal again in these impersonal times."
The special ambiance of a family-like feeling and the happy energy that circles around the people can be sensed at the office. There is a feeling of doing something good, for the people and society, by connecting the right people with the right job. It seems to be the deep wish of every player – the candidates', the employers' and the companies' – in the vast and challenging field of recruitment.
Henri Nordström, CEO, Jobilla
What Is Jobilla?
Jobilla was founded when serial entrepreneurs got frustrated with how difficult it was to hire qualified people. "Finding good employees was always one of the biggest challenges", says Henri Nordström, CEO and co-founder of Jobilla. "There weren't any recruitment solutions out there that were cost-effective and actually got qualified applicants. All the best people we hired were not actively looking for a job and they never applied to us. We needed to manually headhunt them and that was a very manual and time-consuming process", Henri says. "Every company in the industry offered the same ineffective methods that provided constantly worse results."
Jobilla's digital recruiting is using technology for reaching, attracting, activating and hiring employees. Jobilla's recruitment software is free for everyone and it supports the process every step of the way. So far the concept is working. Founded in 2015, the company is now hiring in 48 countries and it's customers get on average 7 x more candidates than through the traditional ways of recruiting.
