Adding a job - a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Firstly, head to the jobs section of your portal and select 'add a new job'

Step 2: In "Step 1: Key details" enter the key job info and then click 'next':

Top tip: When sharing a job the title will be seen first along with your image so make sure the job title is informative and eye-catching to encourage people to open the link and read the rest of the advert:

Step 3: In "Step 2: Pay and hours" enter the hours' details (you can use numbers or words here). Then enter a pay rate by selecting either yearly, monthly, weekly or hourly from the drop-down menu and add the minimum and maximum pay values. Alternatively, if you'd prefer not to reveal the pay rate, you can select 'do not specify' from the drop-down menu.

Step 4: In "Step 3: Description & Media" click "browse" or drag and drop an image into the "Feature image" box. You can also add a Vimeo or YouTube video link to the "Feature video" section.

Videos and photos are a great way to make your job ad stand out when shared, especially on social media!

Under the "Description heading" enter a friendly job description (check out our suggested job ad wording here).

Step 5: On the final screen 'Step 4: Job Settings' select if you would like the question 'Do you have a driver's licence and access to a car for work?' added to the expression of interest form completed by the new candidates.

If you would like to add the question: ‘Do you have the right to live and work in the UK?’ to the expression of interest form, toggle ON ‘Role requires the candidate to live and have the right to work in the UK’.

For organisations based in the Republic Of Ireland or Australia, the question will reflect your country.

This toggle will now appear, switching this on will auto-reject any candidates who answer that they do not live and have the right to live in the country.

Toggling this ON will ensure that:

  • The candidate will not come through to your Care Friends candidate area - saving your recruiter’s time

  • the referrer will not receive any points for the expression of interest - so you only pay points for eligible candidates

  • the candidate will receive a friendly email to inform them that only applicants who are living and have the right to work in the same country as your organisation can be progressed

PLEASE NOTE: If the toggle remains OFF then even if a candidate answers that they do not live and have the right to work in the country the applications will appear in the candidate list as usual and the referrer will receive the expression of interest points.

Step 6: Use the drop-down menu under 'Recruiter responsible' to select the admin user who you would like to receive an email notification when someone expresses interest in the job.

Top tip: To prevent any delays in contacting candidates (particularly if a user is on leave), we recommend always setting up at least 2 users to receive email notifications.

Under 'HR or manager responsible" use the drop-down menu to select which admin user you would like to be notified via email when the starter reaches the 'still in post' milestone. This admin user should be able to confirm if the starter is still in post.

Step 7: Click 'Finish'

Step 8: Activate the job to send it to the app - search for the job you have just added > click on the three-dot menu icon next to the job > click "activate":

You can preview the job advert by clicking on the job title.

If you need to make any changes to the job you can select "edit" in the three-dot menu and follow the steps.

That's it! You've added and activated a new job and app users will receive a notification to let them know:
