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.

Post apprenticeships to Recruit an Apprentice with the best recruitment system for Training Providers

Post vacancies on Recruit an Apprentice automatically

Training Providers find apprentices and place them into apprenticeship vacancies with local employers. Now Training Providers can post apprenticeships on Recruit an apprentice automatically.

Training Providers

Apprenticeships are big business and Training providers are cashing in. Government-subsidised training fees are a big incentive for employers. But, they need an Ofsted regulated Training Provider to deliver the education component of this great pathway into work.

Training Providers include independent companies, Colleges and some larger organisations with training departments. Each acts like a recruitment agent as they attract, qualify and place people.

All apprenticeship vacancies must be advertised on GOV Recruit an Apprentice (RaP). This is a free service, but one that takes quality seriously. All apprenticeships are quality checked by the service. That means that some apprenticeship adverts can be rejected for missing or inaccurate information. Checking can also take time, so Training Providers have complained that their apprentice can be found well before their advert goes live on RaP.


There are other free apprenticeship adverting options. Post jobs for free on GOV Find a Job, for instance. They recently extended their job types to include apprenticeships. You can also make use of free postings on Google for Jobs. In Kent, post apprenticeships for free on Apprentice Kent. Unfortunately, Indeed will only accept apprenticeship vacancies from RaP.

To post apprenticeships on more than one job board takes time. That is time that Colleges don’t have because they offer their services free of charge to employers. They would like to post jobs on RaP and other services with a single click. The answer is an Applicant Tracking System with MultiPost.

CVMinder HUB

CVMinder HUB is a recruiting system for Training Providers. It manages the full recruitment lifecycle and has a MultiPost function. That means that Training providers can post apprenticeships for free on RaP, GOV Find a Job, Google for Jobs and other websites with a single click.

CVMinder also manages work placements, enrolments and includes a powerful employability module. It helps Training Providers to recruit faster at lower cost and do lots more besides.
