Job Advertising Coverage

As a standard package, Flat Fee Recruiter will advertise their clients’ roles on some of the leading job boards, including Total Jobs, Jobsite, Monster, Reed, and Adzuna. Here at Get Staffed, we also give our clients access to all these boards, plus even wider coverage with sponsored adverts on Indeed, as standard!

Therefore, Get Staffed give all our clients access to 8 of the best job boards compared with just 5 with Flat Fee Recruiter.  If you are hoping to advertise on Indeed with Flat Fee Recruiter then you must upgrade to their ultimate package, the extra cost of this will be explained later in the blog.

Social media is a great tool to access a wider pool of potential candidates. Flat Fee Recruiter will share your job advertisement to their channels on Facebook and LinkedIn. Get Staffed offer you the same but we will also promote your job on Twitter – allowing your advertisement to reach the widest network of people and giving you the best opportunity to attract more applicants. Also, as we post your role to our Facebook – you will gain access to our nearly 10,000 followers and the site’s thriving job network, from which we receive hundreds of applications each week.

Would you like to be more targeted with your job advertising? Maybe there is a sector-specific job board that you want to post your role on? You may be hoping to fill a finance vacancy and have been tempted by GAAPweb; or need a new IT Technician so think CW Jobs would be a good place to advertise. Flat Fee Recruiter do not offer niche job boards as part of their service but Get Staffed will be more than happy to advise you on which sites are best suited to post your role! Some businesses also like to include their branding when they advertise a role; this is available as an upgrade with both Get Staffed and Flat Fee Recruiter.


One of the key benefits of recruiting online is the price – it’s a cost-effective method to find your next member of staff! Flat Fee Recruiter offer their standard job advertising package at £249 per role. Here at Get Staffed, we offer job advertising from £199 for a wider selection of sites, £50 cheaper than Flat Fee Recruiter! Plus, to advertise on Indeed and CV Library with Flat Fee Recruiter, you will have to buy their ultimate branded package at a cost of £999. Get Staffed will post your role to both sites as part of our premium offering at £299, potentially saving your business £700!

Further discount is available with Get Staffed if you wish to advertise multiple jobs. For example, you can post 10 jobs for £1690 (£169 per advert) and we will be more than happy to offer you a discount on 3 job adverts or more – just get in touch! As far as we are aware, Flat Fee Recruiter do not offer discount on posting multiple posts so it would cost £2490 to post 10 adverts – which is nearly 50% more than with Get Staffed.


One thing we do differently to most of our competitors, including Flat Fee Recruiter is our new subscription options. This is a great way for businesses to commit to a smaller monthly spend as opposed to paying for all of their advertising upfront – this also gives you access to a slightly different discount structure due to the fact you’re committing to a set period of time! Again, if you were to go for the job advertising subscription option on 10 adverts, this would cost you £150 per month for the year, making the cost of each advert just £180!
