Find out how Get Staffed compares with Benchsmart...

Looking for a new cost-effective way to advertise your jobs?

Benchsmart’s price certainly looks good, but they are missing some of the most popular job boards in the UK meaning millions of candidates just aren’t seeing your opportunities.

If you can put your job advert in front of more people, you’ll get more applications – and we can help you do just that.

At the core of most fixed fee recruiters service, is job board advertising, and here at Get Staffed we’re no different.

Benchsmart are one of the newer low-cost recruitment advertising services, and have focused their products around 3 or 4 main job boards, including Totaljobs, Monster, Indeed and Reed plus the aggregator network these large boards bring.

Advertising with us means your opportunities will be seen on a fair few more boards – CV Library, Guardian Jobs, Gumtree.

Did you know, these extra 3 boards (and their partner sites) bring in 17% of our applications and give you access to over 20 million more candidates. They are huge numbers to be missing out on…

One of the main advantages of using any flat fee recruitment advertising provider is the cost. With the main aim for most providers being to help businesses advertise their roles and recruit without the traditionally expensive fees that are associated with recruitment.

Our essentials advertising package costs just £199 for one advert, or less if you’re looking to buy multiple credits…

You do also have the option to brand your advert, advertise on a number of specialist/niche boards too if this is of interest. Branded advertising costs £399 and the price of the specialist boards would depend on which ones you’re interested in (it’s worth noting we are able to access these credits for a fraction of the price of going to the boards directly!).

Benchsmart only offer the one product/package at a competitive price of £249 however the option to brand your adverts, or access any of the sector specific/niche boards isn’t available.

Similarly, both us and Benchsmart also quickly offer discounts on multiple credit purchases however if you don’t want to pay for your credits upfront, here at Get Staffed we do have subscription options available.

Candidate management

An important part of all recruitment processes is how you receive and manage candidates after they have applied, something most fixed fee recruitment companies offer as part of their service.

Benchsmart have created their own ATS giving you the ability to view, manage and post jobs along with a careers portal to help link the system to your website.

As well as all of these features, our Applicant Tracking System gives you the ability to email, text and change the status of candidates to ensure nobody is missed. We also give all of our clients their very own ‘Talent Pool’ – a CV database holding information about all candidates that have ever applied for one of your roles, a quick place to look for new candidates before even thinking about advertising a new position.

We have used Get Staffed several times as our business has expanded and found the system to be easy to use and monitor. They ensure our advert gets exposure over the main property portals and collate the information we get back from applicants, to make it easier to sort through, saving us time and money. We will use the service again.
