Tes Jobs denying application redirection to key jobsites

In a recent move, Tes Jobs is denying application redirection to some jobsites / job boards. Whilst reports are presently unconfirmed, our understanding is that these may include eTeach and MyNewTerm.

Why is Tes Jobs denying application redirection to some jobsites?

The short answer is that some jobsites are competitors to Tes Jobs.

Sites like eTeach and MyNewTerm operate as jobsites with some applicant tracking capability. Let’s suggest that you use both Tes Jobs and eTeach. You might use the applicant tracking features of eTeach. In this case you’ll want to advertise a teacher vacancy on Tes Jobs and redirect your applicants to apply on eTeach.

The problem for Tes Jobs is that eTeach has captured a new jobseeker that may have cost Tes Jobs a lot of money to acquire. Registering new jobseekers costs marketing dollars for any jobsite. In addition, eTeach can now market other vacancies to that jobseeker. It benefits from greater applicant numbers per vacancy over time. That is great for eTeach, but a loss for Tes Jobs.

What about the Applicant Tracking System?

Is this a problem for those schools using jobsites with applicant tracking functions? The short answer is ‘probably’. If an applicant isn’t redirected to the Applicant Tracking System (ATS), consistent applicant processing will be unachievable.

A school also wants the freedom to change jobsites for reasons of cost or return. Changing jobsite shouldn’t come with the burden of losing its ATS too. Changing an ATS can be a big undertaking for any school. It’s procedures, processes, audit trail and back catalogue of applicants are all in its ATS.

Despite the potential issues for some schools, we support Tes Jobs and their interest in denying application redirects. Tes Jobs is a premium education jobsite. We believe that it should be allowed to protect its own market position.

Separate your ATS from your jobsites

CVMinder ATS for education recruitment does not operate as a jobsite. Schools have access to only the applicants of their own vacancies. There is no public listing of all school jobs on CVMinder. By cooperating with Tes Jobs our customers can continue to enjoy application redirection in the future.

CVMinder ATS can post your vacancies to numerous jobsites, including Tes Jobs, eTeach and Indeed. Set up your applicant journey, share shortlisting, manage interviews, offers and employment checks. Do that in a stable system that doesn’t change when you change your jobsites. Ask your Account Manager for more details.

CVMinder ATS links to Tes Jobs

Tes Jobs is the UK’s premier jobsite for teaching and other education vacancies. For any School, College or University, Tes Jobs is sometimes the best option to attract hard to find teachers, department heads and key support staff.

Posting jobs on Tes Jobs is straightforward, so long as it is the only job board a school uses. For those schools posting vacancies on numerous jobsites, doing this by hand takes time.

Applications from Tes Jobs generally arrive separately from other sources too. Schools must then collate all applications ready for selection by the appropriate people. Sorting and managing applications in this way takes time and it can be insecure. Many print personal details or application forms to make the process simpler for participating staff members.

Post to Tes Jobs and centralise all applications automatically

CVMinder ATS sends all the details of your vacancy to Tes Jobs. Upon receipt they check and post your vacancy within 3 hours. Your Tes advert will be conveniently linked to CVMinder ATS. That means candidates will be automatically redirected to apply on CVMinder ATS. That helps schools because all applications from all sources will be conveniently available for review in one secure system. There’s no need to print and distribute application details because shortlisting can be managed online.

In summary CVMinder ATS posts your vacancy on Tes Jobs at the click of a button and all applicants will be centralised, visible to only the right people and ready for shortlisting.

What is CVMinder ATS?

It’s the best Applicant Tracking System for education because it is designed for the rigorous recruiting requirements of those with safeguarding requirements, like schools and care providers.

Schools can control their applicant journey, receive applications from any source and manage the entire recruiting process easily. Team up with CVMinder ATS to securely share applicant details so you can save time and improve efficiency.

Free job advertising on Monster

Free job advertising on Monster

There’s an old saying that if it’s too good to be true, it’s probably not true. That’s unless we’re talking about free job advertising on Monster. The Monster Jobsite was one of the very first recruitment websites in the UK.  It has been a leader for years and is considered to be one of the pioneers of online recruitment.

Now CVMinder has teamed up with Monster to give you a free job advertising option. It’s true; your jobs can be advertised without paying a penny. 

What you need to have free job advertising on Monster

If you already use CVMinder ATS, contact your Account Manager to make sure your ATS subscription includes MultiPost. CVMinder’s MultiPost module advertises your jobs on select job boards for you. That includes free options like GOV Find a Job or Indeed and your subscription jobs boards like TotalJobs or CareHome.co.uk

If your CVMinder ATS subscription checks out, you’ll be good to go. We’ll set things up so that you can start advertising on Monster for free straight away.

Why will I get free jobs advertising on Monster?

That’s a great question. The job advertising market is changing and Indeed has been the the biggest jobsite for a number of years. Some say it has been so successful because it gives employers free job advertising.

If you ever purchased advertising options from a job board or jobsite, you’ll know that results are never guaranteed. It’s a gamble. However, if you are getting results from free adverts, you’re more likely to invest in that job board when the time is right. Lots of employers have been spending money with Indeed, so free job advertising must be good for business.

So, jobs boards like Monster are fighting back. Free job advertising is the name of the game and that’s great news for you.

Is there a downside to free job advertising on Monster?

No. There’s no downside, but your free job adverts won’t perform quite as well as paid or ‘sponsored’ adverts.

Free adverts are called organic job postings by Monster. Just as with Indeed, your free adverts will decline in search results more quickly than any sponsored adverts. Sponsoring means paying to make sure your job advert stays higher in jobseeker search results.

Your adverts won’t be branded either. Your company name will be visible and the advert looks great, but there will be no logo or other livery.

What happens when someone applies to my free Monster job advert?

So, CVMinder ATS has posted your free job advert on Monster. Somebody finds it and tries to apply for it. What happens next? The applicant will be redirected automatically to your application form on CVMinder.

Using CVMinder ATS you’ll have all the controls you need to collect the right information and process the applicant quickly and efficiently. That’s great for any organisation, but regulated employers like Care Providers and Schools collect lots of information. Don’t worry. We have you covered.

Tell me more about CVMinder MultiPost

There have been two barriers to using free job boards:

  • The time it takes to post your free job advert on each one
  • The quality of applicant you receive

CVMinder MultiPost saves you posting time. It connects your CVMinder system to your job boards and advertises your jobs automatically. The more job boards you use, the more time you save.

CVMinder ATS makes sure that applicant quality remains high. All applicants enter the application process you create. You can make applying super easy or you can increase the workload. We’ll help you find the right balance to encourage just the more motivated, higher quality applicants to apply for your job.

Is carehome.co.ok the best job board for care homes?

Is carehome.co.uk the best job board for Care?

Recruiting for Care Homes in the UK comes with challenges. You may be trying to reduce recruitment costs by recruiting for yourself. But, where should you advertise vacancies to get the best results for the lowest cost? One emerging option is CareHome. It is focused on the care industry, but is carehome.co.uk the best job board for Care vacancies?

What is carehome.co.uk?

carehome.co.uk is leading comparison site for care homes. Owned and managed by Tomorrow’s Guides, its sister boards are homecare.co.uk and daynurseries.co.uk.

CareHome lists approximately 18,000 individual care homes throughout the UK. Consumer and investor interest in care homes draws significant traffic with over 16 million hits each year. Now the site includes a jobs board for the sector and more care providers are advertising on it. At the time of writing it listed approximately 5,000 vacancies, including Carers, Nurses and Care Home Managers.

Is it the best job board for care vacancies?

There are a few ways to test whether carehome.co.uk is the best job board for care vacancies.

  1. Does a Bing or Google search for “care jobs”, list carehome.co.uk on page 1 search results?
  2. How does the number of care jobs on carehome.co.uk compare with other job boards.
  3. Do care homes report success after advertising on carehome.co.uk?
  4. What is the cost of adverting care vacancies.
Searching for care jobs with Google or Bing

Many jobseekers start their job search by using their favourite internet search engine. We used 3 popular ones to check whether carehome.co.uk appears on page 1 results. This test was conducted on 10th November 2019.

Search EnginePosition on Page 1
BingNear Bottom
DuckDuckGo Not on page 1

carehome.co.uk features on page 1 results of the most common search engines. It also appears in the natural search results, not by paid advertising. That’s good news because it is more likely to remain on page 1. Whilst carehome.co.uk didn’t appear at the top in our tests, it did add the jobseeker’s current location. That makes the listing more relevant and perhaps more enticing to jobseekers.

carehome.co.uk listing on page 1 search results using Google
The number of jobs on carehome.co.uk

These results were compiled on 10th November 2019. We looked at the total search results for “Carer”, “Care Assistant” and “Care Support Worker”. Admittedly carehome.co.uk is more focused on jobs in a care home setting. However, jobseekers like choice and listing a wider selection of local jobs is an obvious advantage.

Job BoardNumber of Care Vacancies
Indeed60,000 +
TotalJobs27,000 +
GOV Find a Job26,000 +
CVLibrary20,000 +
KentJobs500 +

These results don’t favour carehome.co.uk. We question whether a tight industry focus might limit its audience. But, why not try some of your own research with local and other national job boards? That could help you determine the best job board for Care vacancies in your area.

Do care homes report success with carehome.co.uk?

Some of our care customers have used carehome.co.uk, but feedback is very patchy. Application source can be tracked with a good Applicant Tracking System, but there are issues here.

carehome.co.uk forces jobseekers to create an account before applying for any care job and that can be an application barrier. This barrier triggers some jobseekers to search for the individual Care Home website so that they can apply directly. Skipping to an employer’s website is becoming more commonplace but automated tracking of of the applicant source is disrupted. The source appears to be the employer’s website and not the job board.

Reasons for the leap include a worry that current employers might find jobseeker details after creating an account. This is particularly true of job boards with a CV search option and carehome.co.uk offers that.

What does it cost to advertise care jobs on carehome.co.uk?

Advertising costs are a big concern for Care Homes, so it’s good to find that carehome.co.uk prices reflect this. A single job advert can cost as little as £10.

You can also get up to 10 free job adverts if you buy a sponsored listing for your care home. These would otherwise cost at least £100. The annual cost of a sponsored listing is currently £300 + VAT per annum, so free job adverts make this a very attractive option.


carehome.co.uk is visible to jobseekers and focused on the Care Home sector. It’s also good value and buying a sponsored listing seems like the best option to start with. Use your free adverts to find out whether it works for you.

One key worry is that other job boards list more care vacancies than carehome.co.uk Boards like Indeed and TotalJobs also appear higher in internet search results. We would also like to see carehome.co.uk remove an application barrier by making shorter its up-front information request to new jobseekers.

This said, we think carehome.co.uk should be included in the mix of advertising options for care jobs. It is focused and there are few industry focused alternatives for Care Homes. But, the success of any job advert isn’t solely down to your choice of job board. Check out how to write job adverts that get more job applications.

Other Job Advertising Options for Care

Thankfully, alternatives are freely available for care homes. Indeed offers free advertising options for employers. It also offers the greatest number of care vacancies when compared with the other job boards we tested, so it has jobseeker appeal. You can also sponsor adverts. That keeps them in Indeed’s search results for longer and that’s great for your hard to fill vacancies. If you do sponsor adverts, you can be sure that people will see it them. Using Indeed is a no brainer.

GOV Find a Job is a free job board too. This is managed by the DWP and it advertises almost as many care jobs as TotalJobs. With so many care jobs listed, it’s hard to ignore. GOV Find a Job costs nothing and has jobseeker appeal, so its an obvious choice for Care Homes.

Google for Jobs isn’t technically a job board. But, it can be used without charge to display your latest jobs and more applicants are discovering it all the time. You can’t post your jobs by hand on Google for Jobs, but an ATS get them there for you.

The truth is that we don’t know where viable jobseekers will find your next vacancy. The best approach is to advertise in several places. But, that requires more time to advertise and more time to review the less relevant applications that accompany more relevant ones. Care homes are time strapped and on a budget, so, how can we square that circle?

Advertise care jobs in less time, without big budgets

Ideally, Care Homes should advertise on multiple job sites and receive more appropriate applications without effort. Doing this at low cost sounds like an impossible request, but the option is available.

You’ll need an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and one that can distribute your jobs to the right job boards automatically. The best ATS will publish your jobs on your own website, on free job boards like Indeed and on your subscription job boards like carehome.co.uk Your applicants should arrive in one place, having provided all the information you need to make safe, fair shortlisting decisions. By making applicants complete details beforehand, you’ll spend less time reviewing job applications from hapless, 1-click appliers.

An ATS for care doesn’t have to be expensive. It should easily pay for itself by helping you avoid recruitment fees, excessive job board charges and all the admin. In fact, an ATS should save you money.
