Submitting a job advertisement

Registering and creating an account

You can post a job advertisement for free by registering as an employer or by logging in if you already have an employer account. When you register, you will be asked for your name, email address and to create a password. We recommend that you choose a work email address. Registration does not bind you to anything. Register as an employer here.

After registering, you will need to fill in your company details. Add your logo and company profile to your company profile. For the job advertisement, you will need the details of the position, the text of the advertisement, a cover photo and the URL where you would like to receive applications (*optional).

An account has been created for me

For Jobportal, we search for advertisements from open public sources, such as the TE services. The job advertisement will show if the source is TE Services and therefore the application will also be directed to the address indicated on the TE Services website. We will automatically create an account for you in our service once we have retrieved the job advertisement from an open source. You can use your ID to edit the job advertisement, for example its content, appearance or where incoming applications are directed. If no changes are made, applications will always be automatically forwarded to the address you entered on the TE Service website when you submitted your job advertisement. When you receive applications for your ad on the Jobportal, we will notify you by e-mail. We recommend that you change your password on first login. If you have any questions, please contact us via chat or contact customer service.

 

I didn't get a new password
We will send your new password to the email address you enter in the 'Lost your password?' Reset it here' field on the login page. If necessary, you can contact customer service.

Deleting an account

If you want to delete an account created for you, please contact customer service.

Leave a job advertisement

To publish a job advertisement, you must first login as an employer. If you are logging in for the first time after registration, you will need to fill in your company details in the 'personal details' section. Add your company name, the name and email of the recruiter, company phone number, logo, business ID and address. You can also add the company's web address and a company profile. This information will be displayed at the end of your job advertisement. If the job is posted from an open source, some of your company information will already be filled in.

Sharing an account with another person

You can share your company profile with important people by adding their name and email in the 'personal details' section. The added users will receive an email address with an ID to log in. These people will also receive the same emails as the profile creator and see everything the profile creator sees. When you remove a user from the list, they will not be able to log in to their profile with the credentials they previously received. You can add the same user again after deletion. They will then be sent new credentials to log in with.


Note: You cannot add a user who is already registered as a jobseeker on Jobportal to your employer profile.

 

Reactivation of the job advertisement

As you can see in the above screenshot, the system also stores expired published job advertisements. You can go back to old job advertisements and view their statistics. You can also reactivate your old job advertisement. You can find your old job advertisements under 'inactive'. If you have previously purchased a campaign package for an advert that you want to reactivate – you can activate it without worry, you will not be charged for reactivation. If you want to reactivate a campaign package for that ad, you can do so by clicking 'Buy a campaign package' in the ad after activation.

Marketing a job ad

You can promote your job ad on the Jobportal and social media by purchasing a campaign package. Jobportal currently has four different paid campaign packages to meet your company's recruitment needs. For more information on the campaign packages, click on here.

 

The campaign package uses illustrations from Jobportal. Currently, customers' own branded imagery cannot be used in marketing. However, we recommend that you add your company logo and any promotional images to the job advertisement. You can also add distinctive features to your advertisement by using different text formatting.

What are the benefits of campaigns?

Campaigns take the job opening to where the applicant is. Visibility on applicants' smart devices and social media can attract even more passive job seekers. Passive jobseekers are those who are ready to change jobs but are not actively looking for a new one or are focused on specific companies and their openings.


Not all companies want to buy recruitment services to support their recruitment because it is expensive. They also want to invest in recruiting their first employee, but not necessarily thousands of euros. Jobportal was created to fill this gap. We want to offer the smaller players in the market the opportunity to successfully recruit and find a new employee. We offer employers affordable campaign packages to increase the visibility of their advertisement. By advertising a job on Jobportal, we can reach active job seekers through recruitment channels, email and targeted social media. By advertising a job on Jobportal, we can reach active job seekers through recruitment channels, email and targeted social media.


The most profitable campaign package for reaching out to jobseekers is Social media star. The job ad will appear on the front page, first in search results and targeted on social media for €50 or the amount you set. The advertising will be carried out by a professional Marketing Agency Mediaspark

Campaign guarantee

If you don't receive any applications as a result of a Social media star campaign, we will offer the corresponding next campaign for free. Terms and conditions 

Why choose targeted digital advertising?

  • Because the best candidates may not be actively looking for a new job, but are still open to new opportunities.
  • Targeted digital advertising is a fraction of the cost of a recruitment agency.
  • Marketing agency is responsible for the effective distribution of the ad on social media to the target audience.
  • The marketing agency has up-to-date expertise in the rapidly changing digital world.

  • Did you know that advertising your job search on social media is restricted by discriminatory practices? Those who have done ad targeting already know how poor targeting can ruin the results of an entire campaign. A bad recruitment campaign can negatively impact other campaigns your company runs that are being handled from the same advertising account. We don't want this for you and therefore encourage you to use sites already identified as job search sites for job advertising on social media. Sites that are already identified as being associated with job search on social media, such as Jobportal, will reach users better.

    On average, a job advertisement with a Social media star campaign bought without any additional money gets 250 reads. This is influenced by factors such as the vacancy itself, the popularity of the sector and the employer image of the company. For the most popular sectors, the Social media star campaign without additional money has an average of 450 reads.
