How do I add a position?

You should create a position for each unique role you're hiring for. Add a new position by clicking on the positions tab on the main candidate list and clicking the “Add position” button on the left hand side of the page.

Follow the steps in our handy position creation wizard and you're all set.

Step 1 - Basic info and job spec - Give the position a name and specify how many vacancies you need to fill. Write a job spec or attach an existing one to give candidates more information on the role you're hiring for.

Step 2 - Set up a message template - Craft a message for the position and reuse it every time you reach out to candidates. A good message will get candidates excited about the opportunity and is more likely to get a positive response.

Step 3 - Define your search criteria - Specify locations, roles, skills, experience and salary bracket and we will use these criteria to find matches for you. Try not to make your criteria too strict - you don't want to miss out on great candidates because they don't match your requirements perfectly.

Step 4 - Define your hiring team - Select the people on your hiring team that need to collaborate on the position. They will be informed of all new candidates going live on OfferZen that match the criteria you defined.

You can also add and edit existing positions from the positions dashboard.

Candidates will only see your position once they have received a message from you. Your position will not appear on any public job boards or on your OfferZen profile, nor will candidates be able to apply to any of your positions directly.

How do I reach out to a candidate using a position?

From the positions tab on the candidate list, click on the the position you want to search for and look through the resulting list of matches. When you’ve found someone you like, click on their profile to view more information.

Reach out to them by sending a message in the right-hand side panel. If your position has been set up with a job spec and a message template, the message form will be pre-populated and the the candidate will receive the job description along with your message.
