RecPress specifications

This page outlines the specifications for your integrated job board, provided as part of the RecPress package.

Customisations can be made on request, however a customisation charge may be payable.

Job listings page

After installation and configuration of the plugins, the job listings page is the first page that we build.

The job listings page is your main jobs page and it typically provides a list of all the jobs currently active on your site. It includes:

Job listings

This is a list of jobs that can be searched, filtered, and paginated.

Each job can display any/all of:

  • Job title
  • Meta data
    • Sector/industry
    • Job type
    • Salary
    • Location
    • Working arrangement
  • Excerpt text (first 50 characters of the job description)
  • “View job” button

Pagination

You can set a maximum number of jobs to display per page. If there are more jobs than the maximum per page, then links to further pages will be displayed under the job listings.

Job count

The total number of jobs returned by the current “query”. If no search or facets have been used, this will be the total number of publicly viewable jobs on your site.

RecPress has an advanced keyword search that searches the entire job data (not just the title and description). This means that candidates can find relevant jobs faster.

The radius search allows candidates to search for jobs that are a certain distance from a point on a map.

It’s important to note that this will not return jobs within a geographical area, .e.g. within a county. Instead, it will place a point on a map and return all jobs within a circle centered on that point.

For example, searching for “London” and setting a 10 mile radius would return all jobs within a circle centered on the centre point of London.

Facets

The results can be filtered using additional facets. These include:

  • Job category (sector/industry) – a series of checkboxes to choose to show only jobs from the selected industries.
  • Job type – a series of checkboxes to choose to show only jobs from the selected types.
  • Working arrangement – a series of checkboxes to choose to show only jobs from the selected arrangements. These include “Remote”, “Hybrid” and “Office based”.
  • Location – a series of checkboxes to choose to show only jobs from the selected locations. These locations can either be county or country.
  • Salary range – this is a range slider input to set a minimum or maximum salary. Only jobs within the salary range are displayed in the results.

These facets can be removed if not required. Additional facets can be added, which may incur a small additional cost – please ask about this.

Job listings page layout

There are five standard layout options for the job listings page:

  1. Search and facets on left (most popular)
  2. Search and facets on right
  3. Search top, facets left
  4. Search top, facets right
  5. Search and facets on top

Key: Search, Facets, Jobs

The job listings themselves can be displayed either in a list or as a grid (e.g. 2 or 3 columns).

Custom layouts are achievable but may require some chargeable development work.

Creation, design and layout of job page content outside of the above is not included as part of the RecPress service.

Single job page

This is the template which displays a single job.

Single job modules

The following information can be displayed on the single job page:

Consultant details

With RecPress, you can display the relevant consultant information on each job page. This includes:

  • Name
  • Role
  • Profile photo
  • Email address
  • Telephone number
  • LinkedIn profile link

For this to work, your consultant must be set up as a WordPress user and assigned as the job author.

If you are using a job posting service with JobRelay, assigning the user as the author will be done for you.

Application form

An application form will be presented beneath the job description on the single job page. Applications made using this form will be emailed to the author of the job.

The application form will have the following fields included (fields in italic are required fields):

  • Full name
  • Email address
  • Message
  • Privacy consent – a checkbox to agree to privacy and data protection policies.
  • CV upload

Once the form is submitted, the user is presented with a message indicating a successful application. This message can be customised with different text.

The fields above can be modified, using options provided in the WordPress admin area. The following types of form fields (inputs) can be used:

  • Text
  • Textarea
  • Select
  • Multiselect
  • File upload – allows multiple files
  • Checkbox

On the job pages, you have the option to display “related jobs”. Related jobs are found by using the job title as the search keywords and displaying the latest 3.

Single job layout

The layout of the single job template is very flexible and can be built in one of two ways:

  • Shortcodes – there are shortcodes for all of the single page modules listed above
  • Filtering the_content()

Don’t worry if the above doesn’t make sense, we’ll choose the best option for you.

Expired jobs

You can assign an expiry date to jobs.

Jobs will be expired on or just after this date. This sets the status of the job to ‘expired’, ensuring that:

Structured data

If SEO or Google for Jobs are important for you, RecPress has you covered.

Each single job with have the appropriate structured data output on the page. This will included all the required fields including hiring organisation name. This will be set to the name of your recruitment company as it is a required structured data field.

Job board styling

As you can see from all of the examples on this page, RecPress job boards are uniquely styled to match with your existing website.

We can either design the job board for you based on your current site’s styling, or you can provide designs for us.

Please note: The HTML output is fixed and not every conceivable layout or design is possible, and some compromises may be required. However, we can always get your job board to look beautifully integrated.

Maintenance and support

As well as designing and building your new job board the job board, RecPress also supports your job board throughout the duration of your contract.

This support includes:
