Job Board Coverage

With the standard advertising package, there really isn’t much to separate Get Staffed and AWD Online as we offer the same job board coverage across some of the most popular sites. These include Indeed (Sponsored), Reed, Jobsite, Totaljobs, Monster and a range of free and aggregator boards to reach as many candidates as possible and encourage more applications. Both companies also offer various sector specific boards to reach more specialised candidates and promote all our clients’ vacancies across Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

However, Get Staffed also share all our vacancies onto Instagram and have started to promote roles on Snapchat, TikTok and even YouTube for certain roles. Additionally, we give our clients access to over a million quality candidates registered on Guardian Jobs with our premium package; in contrast AWD Online give access to Metro and Independent Jobs but they are only available with bespoke packages.

Branded Advertising

Get Staffed and AWD Online both offer branded job advertising which is a great way to promote your business across the leading job boards and is more open with candidates about which company they are applying to work for which can attract more interest. Branded adverts are available across most of the job sites I have mentioned with the addition of premium job board CV Library and their excellent network of sites. The main difference between AWD Online and Get Staffed regarding branded advertising is the price, I will go into more detail about this now…


The branded package with AWD Online is priced at £549 to promote your brand across the leading job boards. In comparison, the same package is available with Get Staffed for just £399 – meaning you save £150 to work with Get Staffed for the same service! Furthermore, Get Staffed offer a branded advert on CV Library plus normal adverts on our standard selection of boards and Guardian Jobs for only £299. CV Library is a popular board, so we think it’s important to offer it to our customers at a competitive price – £250 cheaper than AWD Online!

For the standard package, both Get Staffed and AWD Online offer coverage over our core boards for £199. Though Get Staffed also offer clear discounts on purchasing multiple credits or subscriptions for regular recruiters, so it is possible to advertise your next role for even less than £199…
