2020 has revealed Zoek’s new and improved, purpose-built Hirer Portal aimed at improving the service offered to hiring managers, using Zoek to post jobs. But if you’re still wondering “why use a job board to recruit and post your job vacancies”, here’s the number one reason… Studies reveal, job boards are responsible for about 20% of all successful hires, while more than 65% of candidates are seeking new employment directly through these sites, with 1 in 6 external hires made in this way.
Zoek’s New Hirer Portal
2020 is already getting off to a flying start with Zoek launching our brand-new Hirer Portal, already showing signs of becoming the go-to option for employers and recruitment agencies nationwide. Zoek offers the ability to create online job postings to advertise open positions at your company. Job seekers can search for job opportunities throughout the platform. In addition, all job postings get promoted and recommended to relevant candidates through our Zoek Alerts feature.
So, whether you are a business, employer, research institution, professional body, education or training provider or simply an individual looking to find and employ the right talent, here’s a step by step guide on “How to post a job”, made simple!
Step 1 – Log in to the Hirer Portal
Simply log in to your Hirer Portal account, after registration, and go to the main dashboard. On the left hand-side click “Adverts” from the drop-down menu, and then click “Create”. In your dedicated employer account, you can post a new job at any time as well as monitor any updates and changes on your listings.
Step 2 – Enter the details of your jobs
Add a clear, concise title and allocate your job advert to the right category. If your company has several business units, then make sure you list it under the right one. In regards to the location of your job, you can select among the options “nationwide”, “work from home”, add a specific postcode and location description, or even hide it. The job details you provide will help match your job to relevant job seeker searches, so ensure the job details filled in are as accurate as possible.
Step 3 – Specify Job Type, Hours and Salary
Next, you can specify the job type (temporary, permanent, or contract), the contract hours if needed (unspecified, full time, part time or zero hour). You’ll then need to add in the job salary and any additional benefits offered. A quick hint to bear in mind is that, including a salary in job adverts can give employers a competitive advantage, when trying to attract quality candidates. That’s because most job seekers tend to look first at a position’s compensation and benefits when scanning a job posting, then at the job’s required qualifications and duties. In addition, several surveys reveal that listing non-cash employee benefits in job ads can radically motivate job seekers to apply.
Step 4 – Add a job description that explains the role & responsibilities
Your job descriptions are where you start marketing your company and job to your future employee. Job seekers primarily want to know how much they’ll make, what they’re expected to do and whether they can get the job. So, crafting a concise, compelling job description on Zoek’s hirer portal is vital to attracting the right candidates and relevant talent. A good job description starts with a job analysis and performs a range of essential functions, such as describing the skills and competencies needed to perform the role as well as defining the role within the hierarchy of the company.
Step 5 – Set job requirements and desired application cap
Through Zoek’s hirer portal you can manage and set a preferred application method as well as any documents required. Finally, our platform offers the option to specify the desired number of applications you’d like to receive for each advert posted. Once you have posted your job adverts, you can view and track performance as well as applications received by clicking “Adverts” and selecting “List” form the drop down menu options.
For companies who may have numerous job adverts to post, Zoek offers many useful integrations, such as Broadbean, Logicmelon and Idibu (just to name a few), which makes bulk-uploading of job adverts even easier. Check out Zoek’s new Hirer Portal today and find better-matched candidates from as little as £0.88* per job application or use one of our other paid job advertising models.
