It’s the end of 2018 – so are things slowing down? Well, not exactly. Money continues to be raised, a site goes down, and some other sites are expanding. Let’s take a look:

  • Jobindex revenue upDanish job board Jobindex reported net sales for the third quarter of DKK 71.7 million (€9.6 million), an increase of 5.7% compared to last year. Jobindex’s recruitment products generated sales of DKK 6.2 million (€0.8 million) in the third quarter, up by 8.7%. Jobindex’s core job board, Jobbsafari generated sales of 2.5 million (€0.3 million), down 7.4% from last year. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.
  • NetJobs revenue downSwedish job board NetJobs reported revenue for the second quarter ending 30 June 2018 of SEK 9.2 million (€0.8 million), a decrease of 7% compared with the same period last year. During the months of May and June, Netjob’s Group launched a new design on all of its job sites in Sweden and Germany. The new layout also included the subsidiary Onrec’s sites.  Hmm.
