Job Advertising Accelerated: What boards do we use?Adam Rhodes
Job advertising online can be a bit of a gamble. Unless you do plenty of research and a bit of testing it can be hard to know which board is ideal for your vacancy. With some websites charging upwards of £200 for a single listing is it worth the risk?
It all depends on how important filling the role is. When an extra pair of hands is needed to keep the business moving forward can you afford to think about where to advertise? In this article we go over what websites have worked best for us over the twelves years since offering our services.
CV Library is one of the best marketing job sites in the UK. With adverts on busses, tube stations, radio, TV and more it’s very difficult to avoid them. The website itself has over 13.6 million CVs and around 300,000 new ones coming in every month. No matter what position you are advertising for, it’s very likely that a suitable candidate is in here somewhere.
Like most job advertising websites, CV Library have a welcome offer that saves you almost 50% on the cost of your first listing. Typically a credit on the website would cost you £149+vat and delivers on average 16 applications. CV Library has consistently delivered for i4 Resourcing and our clients.
Call the i4 Resourcing team today to discuss discounted job advertising for your business on CV Library.
The company itself was originally founded in 1960 and in 1995 launched one of the UK’s largest job boards. In a recent article titled “14 million reasons you should be using reed.co.uk this month” they boast upwards of 4 million job applications in a single month. Since day one we have used Reed.co.uk on almost all of our job advertising campaigns and here’s why.
They are regularly one of the top performing websites within our advertising arsenal. Another board that welcomes employers and recruiters with an introductory offer and typical advertising costs of £175+vat moving forward.

We introduce to you our very own job board. i4 Jobs was originally launched in 2017 to host the vacancies for our sister company i4 Recruitment. Due to the website’s rise in popularity it was almost instantly added to our full network of premium boards.
In January of this year (2019) the i4 Jobs website underwent a facelift to improve not only it’s image but also functionality. The website boasts one of the simplest job advertising and job application processes online. This combined with social media promotion for every vacancy listed has helped the board see a consistently strong level of applications.
A single listing on i4Jobs.co.uk costs only £45+vat with premium packages costing from £95+vat. All listings advertised on the i4 Jobs website are pushed to Facebook, Google for Jobs, Jobsora and more.
Contact i4 Resourcing today if you wish to start advertising on the i4 Jobs website.
JobSite & TotalJobs
The two websites recently joined forces to deliver a combined total of 20 million active users per month. JobSite boasts being “UK #1 Leading Job Board” and TotalJobs “the UK’s largest hiring platform”. Both websites owned by StepStone continue to invest heavily in candidate attraction. The results of their efforts show with nearly every ad we place.
When you list on one it appears on the other! This is a huge benefit of job advertising on either JobSite or TotalJobs. Their pricing structure is similar to that of CV Library where an add typically costs £149+vat. Both websites also offer an introductory discount of nearly 50% when advertising for the first time.
At i4 Resourcing we offer huge savings when advertising on JobSite & TotalJobs. Speak to our team today to find out more.
Founded in 1995, CareerBuilder have grown their presence in over 60 countries worldwide. The website sees upwards of 24 million visitors per month with job listings posted by over 300,000 employers. With a team of approximately 3000 people it’s easy to see why Career Builder excels in the world of online job advertising.
Their prices are a little higher than the other boards we have covered. An ad on CareerBuilder will cost you £239 and be live on their website for a total of 4 weeks.
When advertising on Career Builder with i4 Resourcing we are able to dramatically reduce the cost as we charge only per application. If you would like to know more about our discounted job advertising packages call our team today.
Indeed is arguably the fastest growing job website of all time. Founded only in 2004 they reached a staggering 250 million unique users per month just fifteen years later. An article posted in February 2016 states their website is home to over 16 million job listings and over 10 million company reviews.
Indeed are the true leaders when it comes to pay on performance advertising across a single website. This however makes it very difficult to price a listing as clicks and applications can cost anywhere upwards of 50p in the UK.
Unlike most job advertising websites Indeed uses unique technology to automatically populate vacancies. If your website is set up correctly, listings posted to your careers page will pull through automatically to Indeed.
The i4 Resourcing team work closely with Indeed account managers to ensure every sponsored Indeed listing performs to the best of it’s ability.
Should you wish to advertise on Indeed be sure to contact us first for advice. We also build careers portals for websites that automatically populate their job adverts on Indeed & Google for Jobs.
Job Advertising Refined
In the past we have utilised the services of hundreds of job websites and continue to use many of them. Above we have outlined the big seven premium boards that form one of our full network packages.
The i4 Resourcing team are aware of other large job websites and chances are we’ve used them in the past. We are consistently developing and improving our services meaning at this time we’ve had to let some of the job boards go. This doesn’t mean we’ll never be using them again however for the time being their cost to performance ratios aren’t suitable for our clients.
