Nosemplois.fr: the benchmark website to help you recruit in Atlantic France

Launched online for the first time in June 2022, nosemplois.fr is one of the 5 ambitious measures of the regional mobilisation plan for employment. It aims to bring together as many offers as possible, which are available in Atlantic France. Totally free, this digital tool offers unique assets and many advantages for both companies and candidates.

Business services include the following features:

  • The possibility of detecting profiles as early as possible, by connecting with future graduates who are in continual vocational training and are registered on the regional programmes 
  • Being able to receive real-time alerts on predefined profiles
  • Having increased visibility of your offers, thanks to their automatic publication on other job sites with a large audience
  • Being able to automate the publication of your offers to save time
  • The possibility of creating your own company page to enhance your brand

We wanted to become a partner of the website Nosemplois.fr because we want to be part of the regional ecosystem which strongly supports the development of industry. In Atlantic France, this sector remains a major employer. The region is naturally attractive and we are mobilising to serve this dynamism. The use of this platform will help support our growth in the heat pump market. Beyond the current recruitment of 130 people per year in Nantes, we plan to increase our workforce by more than 50% by 2030. Our ambition is also to be more visible to young talents from the many good schools or universities in the region.
