How to write a Totaljobs job advert

Creating a job advert on Totaljobs is a straightforward process. You should use a ‘suggested job title’, which you can see when you start typing. You should select a suggestion from the dropdown and avoid jargon in your title. Do not include the salary or company information in the title in an attempt to boost responses. This extra information is added in the next stage of advert creation. It helps to add an introduction to your business and the role, including tasks and responsibilities. Use bullet points to list the skills, qualifications, and experience that a successful candidate will have. You should also:

  • Describe the company benefits that will make the role more appealing to candidates, including annual leave, pensions, and company vehicles
  • Describe your company’s values and culture
  • Include the salary in the job description to boost applicant numbers by up to 20%
  • Include your location to boost responses by up to 50%

To create your job post, your will need a Totaljobs login and the Total Jobs contact number if you need assistance from a Total Jobs recruiter.
