Are you making the most of advertising your

vacancies through social media?

Introducing Yorkshire Jobsboard

Based in Skipton we are the only all-sector job board that offers a 100% focus on Yorkshire. We only accept adverts for vacancies based within Yorkshire and offer a clear brand and desire to build a dynamic and effective resource for Yorkshire’s recruitment professionals and candidates alike.

Yorkshire Jobsboard offers a clear point of difference to employers and recruitment professionals as it was founded with the goal of increasing advert exposure through social media.

‘Yorkshire Jobsboard has really helped us to expand our exposure across new avenues of social media. We found the site easy to use, the adverts are professional, and they are always helpful and friendly if we call with any queries.’  Julie Gregg – Independent Appointments, Leeds

Why focus on social media?

Advertising through social media takes valuable time and effort; however, if employed strategically it increases exposure within a popular yet under exploited space:

  •  An established job board will reach active job seekers while social promotion can attract those sought-after passive candidates.
  • Social media is not a controlled space but neither is it completely random; with an effective strategy adverts can be directed through networks and groups based on location or profession.
  • Although social promotion will not directly attract the number of applications as an established job board it will nevertheless create an important extra layer of coverage that will bring awareness of your adverts and agency to passive candidates for present and future roles. It should not be seen as a replacement but an augment to your strategy of attracting the best candidates.
  • It’s a great way of showcasing your company culture as social media is just a click away from your company website.

How does it work?

Managing social media can be time intensive but we can give you that time back. Posting adverts is quick and easy, yes we are Broadbean and Jobmate? integrated, and our standard packages allows you the freedom of posting an unlimited number of adverts, boosting your productivity. And then we take over...

Once an advert is posted to the job board we share via our LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook accounts and onward into our network of sister accounts and groups. This systematic approach provides considerable soft exposure to your advert helping to extend its coverage across social media without you needing to expend the extra time.

On Twitter alone our account is averaging in excess of 1 million impressions every 28 days and this number is growing along with our following. All adverts contain a link to the job board and we are generating an impressive 50% of our traffic through social media engagement.

We also share your social media output through our Twitter network bringing greater exposure and traffic to your company website.

Our job board network

Although we focus on social media we still understand that a good job board is the foundation of a successful online identity. It allows us to easily accept adverts and offers a simple framework for candidates to apply or be directed to your website for application. It also allows us to increase exposure to job seekers by sharing adverts across our job board network including JobG8’s niche job boards and the national job search engine Adzuna.

‘Being an education recruitment agency based in North Yorkshire, YJB is perfect for us in terms of refining by specific locations and promoting our vacancies locally. For job posting, it has been very easy as we have recently integrated with Broadbean. Yorkshire Jobsboard also networks with social media and does all the hard work for us! We feel valued as clients and can contact them with any queries and expect a prompt response.' Kate Green - Principal Teachers, Catterick

We are pleased to have created a tool for the modern recruiter that allows a focus on attracting the passive candidate through social media promotion whilst still offering the traditional job board to the active job seeker. Our aim is to become the destination website for Yorkshire vacancies and it would be fantastic to have you join us.
