Step 1

Always choose a job title that candidates can find. Avoid using job titles that are specific to your own company.
It is better to choose a generic job title (e.g. Sales Manager or business development manager) in order to maximise applicant response.
Think of some other alternative job titles that candidates will likely search for on job boards.
This will help improve the position of your job advert when candidates perform searches on job boards and search engines like google.
List maximum of 5 keywords (phrases) sepparated by comma.
Include the town and postcode to help with your search ranking visibility.
Include a salary range that is both competetive and realistic to what you will be offering.
Did you know by including a salary you can expect to see an increase of 50% more applications! If you can't advertise the correct salary band, it is better to put £10,000 - £100,000 rather than leave it blank
As well as a competitive salary, include anything else that will be included in their contract. For example are you offering private healthcare? Pension contributions? Company car? Training?
Anything you list here could help encourage that all important applicant to apply.

Only list those items that are 100% essential.
The job advert is not a qualifier, it is an advert to attract a diverse range of applicants. You can always screen the applicants after they have applied. If you put them off with too many requirements, you may have just missed out on an outstanding applicant.
Use Highly desirable rather than loading up the essential criteria section.
Remember, this is the wish list only, but the clever use of keywords in this section can help to improve search results.
Use everything you can to establish that this is a great company to work for.
Describe its culture, the products it sells, the people that work there, the clients you work with, achievements, growth, areas of expertise, awards etc.

Step 4

Your job advert is ready. If you are happy with it please fill in your details.
