  2. Using the multiposter feature to post your ad on free social channels and aggregators
  3. Getting an nthuse link to your advert for you to distribute in your digital campaigns

This article covers posting your ad on the UK’s top job boards.

Through nthuse, you can post enhanced, employer branded job ads to any of our partner job boards. You can create the ad, choose where you want to post it, pay and track your results all through the nthuse platform.

You only ever pay the job board’s list price – there’s no cost for using nthuse. The advert price is set by the job board themselves, in line with their platform pricing.

How to distribute your ad to a job board

First of all, you need to create a job advert. More information on how to do this can be found here. Once you’re happy with your job advert, click Publish.

To distribute your ad to a job board, click Distribute. You’ll then be in the distribution or multiposter area.

Job boards are listed alphabetically. If you have a particular job board in mind, you can use the search bar to look for it. Alternatively, if you want to browse the job boards to find one that’s right for you, then you can search by industry or specialism. Try, ‘technology’ or ‘law’, for example.

Once you’ve found the job board you’re interested in, you can click on it to find out more information.

  • The summary gives a short description of the board and what it specialises in
  • Duration means how long your ad will be live on the job board
  • Ad price is the price you will pay for your ad
  • You can also visit the site to check it’s the right board or to find out more

If you’re happy that this is the job board for you, then just click Add to basket. You can do this as many times as you want with as many different job boards as you want. For example, you might want to post to a generalist job board as well as a specialist industry board.

If you haven’t posted to this job board through nthuse before, then you will be redirected to the job board’s website to log in or create an account. Once you’ve done this, you’ll be prompted to authorise nthuse to post job ads to your account.

Payment and check out

Once you’re happy that you’ve selected all the channels you want to distribute to, click Checkout.

You’ll be prompted to review your order. Once you’re happy, click Pay Now.

If this is your first nthuse purchase, then you’ll need to enter a VAT invoice address. You only need to do this the first time you check out. Click Continue.

Enter your payment details and click Pay Now.

Going live

Once you’ve paid, your ad will be sent to the job board. Usually, it will go live instantly, but some job boards do have approval queues which may make this process slightly slower. If there are any problems with your advert’s content or it hasn’t passed the approval process, then the job board will get in touch with you to discuss this.

You can see the status of your job ad in the distribution area. Your chosen job boards will show at the top of the page. Pending job ads will show in grey whilst live ads will show in blue.

And that’s it! Your ad’s now live on your chosen job boards.
