Job Board Marketing - Seek

Once you have set up a job in StaffCV and published it to your job seeker portal, you can elect to publish it to the Seek job board. 

You need to have an active account with Seek in order to do this. Call your Seek Account Manager and inform them you want to implement the Seek Integration via StaffCV, including the LinkOut facility.

Seek will then provide you with your:

  • Client ID number
  • Template ID number(s)
  • StandOut Job logo ID(s)

The StaffCV Support Desk will use these details to set up the integration for you, and you'll be ready to go.
