What a long way the Wiz'team has come since 2011! As the Wizbii adventure has run it's course in France these past years with 400,000 members, 3 fundraising rounds, a team that has grown to 35 talented little bees, 3 versions of the site, 3 office spaces and 83,949 coffees drunk...we have BIG news to announce to you all.
Let's conquer Europe!The team is happy to announce that today is the official opening of the platform on the international market. We have spread our wings and flown outside of the French borders, landing today in the UK, Spain, Italy, and Germany.
These countries are very different in terms of employment...So why this strategic decision?!Indeed, though the youth unemployment rate is 49.4% in Spain, 42% in Italy, it is 15.5% in England and only 7.3% in Germany. (source: OCDE 2015)
Nevertheless, these countries are all in need of Wizbii's help. With such high unemployment rates in Spain and Italy, it is obvious that young people are having trouble finding a job and Wizbii is here to help them. In Germany and the UK, however, it is is rather the companies that are having difficulties: they are struggling to recruit young talents, particularly in certain sectors. This is where Wizbii steps in: We help young people find a job but we also help enhance companies' employer brand to enable them to hire the best talent out there.
Job offers and projects with no bounderiesWe heard through the grapevine that 1 out of 3 graduates is looking for a job abroad...but what a hassle it is to search for this type of job on all sorts of different websites that aren't in your native language! We therefore kept you guys in mind, our first community, and now offer a network with no borders that will allow you to search for a job in any country from a platform that is in English. In addition to this, you will also be able to join entrepreneurial projects that are based abroad. Why not become a partner for a mobile app based in Barcelona? ;)
A multilingual website and job offers adapted to each countryYou may have already noticed that our website has been available in English for a few weeks already, and will soon be available in other languages as well.
Wizbii's objective? To offer the greatest volume of job offers for young people in each country in which we are present!
