Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that we receive regarding our Candidate Market platform:
We already use Indeed, why would we need to use your platform?
It’s great that you already use Indeed but our platform isn’t intended to replace Indeed, in fact it’s designed to work alongside your existing recruitment strategy. The majority of clients that solely rely on Indeed for their candidate attraction have struggled to receive enough quality, relevant CVs for their open roles.
Our platform gives you the tools to advertise your roles across all of the UK’s major job boards, including Reed, Totaljobs, Jobsite, CV-Library and Monster, ensuring your roles receive the maximum exposure possible to attract quality candidates.
Which job boards would our adverts appear on?
Your job adverts would appear on the following premium job portals:
And due to our recruitment network, your adverts would also appear on the following job portal websites at no extra cost:
We are continually adding more job portals to our network so chances are your adverts would appear on many more not listed above.
How does your CV resourcing services work?
As part of our Silver and Gold packages, you would receive 2 hours per week of dedicated, one-to-one CV resourcing for any open roles you may have. These sessions are held remotely via Google Meet or Zoom, where you will be able to actively participate in utilising our vast CV database with our consultants via screen share. For further details on this please arrange a no obligation Demo with us.
How do you differ compared to other job posting websites?
Unlike other job posting websites, we are also a full service recruitment agency that has been operating for over 7 years under our brand Aston Jones. Because of this, we are able to offer recruitment resourcing services as mentioned above, which has proven to be a huge success with our existing clients.
Do you offer a free trial?
Sure, you can trial our platform for free! You can create your business profile and add any open jobs, which we will share across our free network of job portals including Indeed, SimplyHired, Glassdoor, Aston Jones, Jora, Adzuna to name a few. Once you’re ready, you can upgrade your account by purchasing a subscription to include premium job advert credits as well as free resourcing services (Silver and Gold plans). Contact us for your free promo code.
We are already in contract with another job board, does that mean we can't use your platform too?
You can absolutely use our platform at the same time! If you’re already in a contract with another job board you can still utilise your Candidate Market job advert credits on any of the other premium job board sites. Plus, with our Silver and Gold packages you can also benefit from our free CV resourcing services.
How long are your subscriptions? As I'm reluctant to agree anything too long term.
We understand clients needs and requirements can change so our subscription plans only last 6 months and not 12 month periods. We’d hope you’d find real value for money with our services and renew for a further 6 months but there’s no obligation. What we will always do is roll over any unused job advert credits you may have if you do decide to re-subscribe.
How are you able to offer such competitive pricing compared to direct job board costs?
The simple answer is we buy our job advert credits in bulk from all the major UK job boards and as a result, we are able to pass on huge savings to our clients. We are experts in recruitment and staffing solutions and are always on hand to provide friendly, professional advice to our clients at no extra charge.
You're based in the North East, how can you help my business if I'm based further down south?
We help clients UK wide so location is never an issue. All our services are provided remotely and in a timely manner so no matter where you are based in the UK, we are here to help.
I don't have a PayPal account, how do I purchase a subscription?
No PayPal account, no problem! We would invoice you for your first payment to be made via bank transfer with the remaining payments to be made monthly via bank standing order.
How quickly will my job advert be live on the various job boards?
We aim to get all job adverts posted and online with 24 hours of you submitting them for approval within your Candidate Market account.
