Part 1: Optimise for Search and Job Boards
To reach a broader audience and attract qualified candidates, it’s essential to optimise your job postings for search engines and job boards. Our HR & Recruitment services can guide you through this process. We’ll teach you how to:
- Use relevant keywords: Research the terms candidates use when searching for similar roles. Analyse competitor job postings and use keyword tools to refine your list.
- Include engaging content: Write concise, informative descriptions about the role and company, highlighting company culture, benefits, and what sets your organisation apart.
- Format for readability: Use bullet points, headers, and short paragraphs to break up text. Use bold and italics sparingly, and maintain a consistent font style and size.
- Share on various platforms: Post your job ad on multiple job boards, social media platforms, and professional networks. Consider niche job boards specific to your industry or role.
- Track performance: Measure the effectiveness of your job posting using metrics like views, applications, and conversion rates. Optimise your postings based on performance data.
Part 2: Leverage Your Network
Our Social Media Management services can help you tap into your network to identify potential candidates. Here’s how to leverage your network effectively:
- Reach out to your network: Share job postings with current employees, industry contacts, and professional groups to uncover passive candidates.
- Offer employee referral programs: Encourage employees to recommend candidates from their networks. Provide incentives like bonuses or extra vacation days for successful referrals.
- Collaborate with industry organisations: Partner with industry associations to share job postings and attract skilled candidates. Attend conferences and events to network and increase visibility.
- Attend networking events and career fairs: Engage with potential candidates at events, showcasing your company’s culture and offerings.
- Utilise social media and professional networking platforms: Share job postings on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. Engage with your audience by responding to comments and messages, and keep your company profiles up-to-date.
