Jobsite / Totaljobs Partnership – your questions answered

October 23, 2018
Candidate Source Blog - Jobsite Totaljobs Partnership your questions answered

I’m sure, like myself, most Recruiters have had lots of questions with regards to this new Jobsite / Totaljobs partnership.

  • Why did the partnership happen?
  • What does it mean for recruiters/candidates?
  • How will the job boards now work?

Hopefully, the below will answer some of these questions for you!

Why have Jobsite and Totaljobs formed a Partnership?

StepStone UK, the owner of Totaljobs and Jobsite, has a unique position in the market. They operate a portfolio of eleven brands, giving exceptional breadth and depth in multiple sectors. Last year they began experimenting with how the brands can partner together to drive outstanding Candidate delivery and performance for their Customers. They have now launched an exciting market-leading offer with their two generalist Job Boards Jobsite and Totaljobs, which will provide tremendous results for their Clients – growing the quantity and relevancy of Candidates for all roles.

If I have an account with Jobsite or Totaljobs, how will the Partnership affect me?

From the 01.05.18 you will benefit from greater exposure across the two Job Boards. If you post a vacancy on either site it will be advertised simultaneously on both Jobsite and Totaljobs. For CV database and Watchdogs, your licence will give you access to a combined database of 15.5 million Candidates attracted from both Jobsite and Totaljobs. You’ll also have less admin with one integrated applicant management system.

What other ways can I benefit? 

If you have a contract with both Jobsite and Totaljobs most Consultants will post the same vacancy across both Job Boards, stop! You can now just post on one site, allowing you to advertise twice as many vacancies as you would have done.

They now offer a 7 day posting (Job ad lite), a 42 day posting (Job ad+), CV Database and Watchdog access, continuing the benefit of accessing Candidates from both Job Boards. One posting credit will advertise your job across both sites, a CV Database licence will search the combined CV Database of Totaljobs and Jobsite.

What is the difference between a Featured and Premium advert?

Featured Jobs:

  • Logo present on job posting.
  • Add a hero image to showcase your brand.
  • Job is labelled as Featured in search results.

Premium Jobs:

  • Fully customisable advert including your logo, hero image, main body imagery, background image and videos.
  • Job is labelled as Premium in search results.
  • Instantly shared with matching jobseekers via email.

With a combined database of 15.5 million Candidates, let’s hope this means we will all be filling our vacancies quicker!
