In March 2020 flanders.bio proudly announced the launch of its brand-new corporate website (www.flanders.bio). With the renewed design and updated content, flanders.bio wishes to serve the life sciences sector even better and in particular its members. Especially the job board proves to be an added value, clearly demonstrated by the high amount of daily visitors.
The new website consists of an improved navigation and functionalities and has been designed with an optimal user experience in mind. Therefore, it provides easy access to essential information regarding the life sciences sector such as a summary of upcoming activities, training courses and events, an overview of groundbreaking news, a renewed job page with life sciences vacancies and more.
The job board in particular amounts to a remarkable 51% of total visitors and is consequently the most visited section of the website. Since the launch in March, close to 170,000 visitors(1) took the time to engage with vacancies posted by flanders.bio members. As 43% of these visitors browse the job board using a mobile device, it's clear the digital minded public has also found their way to these job opportunities in life sciences.
Currently, the website displays over 250 vacancies from the life sciences sector published by members through their own ‘My flanders.bio’ environment, ranging from R&D, analytical, clinical and regulatory positions, quality assurance to business development, marketing/communication and even post-doctorates. Member companies control the content, publish date and end date of a vacancy as well as the contact person who'll receive notifications in case of new job applications, in order to create a smooth experience and convenient follow-up.
"We continuously strive to improve the user experience of our members. Through your ‘My flanders.bio’ account you will find for every vacancy an overview of all the applicants and their resumes" says Pascale Engelen, Co-General Manager.
