Job Advertising Coverage

Recruitment Genius give their clients coverage on a wide range of job boards, including some of the most well-known sites such as ReedMonsterCareerBuilder, and Adzuna. Alternatively, Get Staffed offer you a similar way to advertise your job online and give you access to even more job boards. As well as all the sites available with Recruitment Genius, our advertising packages include CV LibraryTotaljobsJobsite and sponsored ads on Indeed as standard. We even have the option to upgrade and include extra sites such as Guardian Jobs and LinkedIn. This gives you access to the most extensive job board network on the market and in turn, giving you the best opportunity to attract more great candidates. 

Looking for something a bit different with your job advertising? Maybe you would like to include your brand when advertising your jobs or want to place your role on a sector-specific job board. If you’re looking to fill a finance vacancy and you’ve been tempted to advertise on GAAPweb, or possibly you’re looking for a Software Developer who might only look for jobs on CW Jobs – not only can we get your vacancies on these sites, we can advise you on which ones are the best for your role! Recruitment Genius offer standardised advertising so these options aren’t available when using them. Here at Get Staffed though, we know all businesses are different so we can create bespoke packages to suit you. 


One of the key benefits of recruiting online is the price – it’s a cost-effective method to find your next member of staff! Recruitment Genius are extremely transparent with their pricing, offering customers the chance to post their job advert for £299. Here at Get Staffed, we offer job advertising from £199 for a wider selection of sites than Recruitment Genius.  

Both Get Staffed and Recruitment Genius offer discounts if you need to advertise multiple jobs. For example, you can buy 10 job adverts with Recruitment Genius for a total price of £2290 (£229 per advert) which is a considerable saving of £700 – compared with us, 10 adverts would cost £1690 (£169 per advert) which is a slightly smaller percentage discount, but it’s still £600 cheaper than our competitors at Recruitment Genius! Both companies also offer discounts on other amounts of adverts too, our discounts start from 3 or more and Recruitment Genius also have a 5 advert option offering you a smaller discount.  


One thing we do differently to most of our competitors, including Recruitment Genius, 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!
