helpguideimageThis is a Step by Step guide to placing FREE job vacancy posting on the Presenter Promotions website.

Firstly to need to register, complete the basic information and ideally add a logo. If you wish your company name to remain anonymous then don’t add a logo and the system will automatically add the Presenter Promotions logo instead.

Once logged in you can either click Post Jobs which is on the top menu under the Jobs on the top menu or in your ‘Dashboard’ go to ‘Jobs and Talent’ and click ‘Post NEW Job Listing’, this will reveal a blank POST A JOB page.

PRODUCER INFORMATION
Company Name: This will be added automatically

JOB OPTIONS
Active: Leave at Yes

DEADLINE DATE
Use the calendar: To select a date when applications finish. (Remember your posting will be removed after this date, but will remain in your dashboard if you want to instantly re-publish it.)

JOB INFORMATION
Job Title: Create a nice short snappy title to make the talent take notice.

Talent Type: Using the drop down menu select the type of talent you need (i.e.) TV Presenter. Try to choose the one that most suits the job in question.

Country: Using the drop down menu select add the country OR Location of Filming or recording. (If this has yet to be decided please use your own or company location).

Region: Using the drop down menu select the region where filming or recording will take place. (If this has yet to be decided please use your own or company location).

Manage Applicants: You have these choices (using the drop down menu) choose either:-

  • Job Board Account (this is the recommended option) This will send applications to your email address and to your Dashboard and supply you with direct links to the applicants details including showreel, audio, photos and CV. You can also reply directly using internal messaging to the applicants in-box and also create shortlists of talent for future reference too.
  • External Website Application (this is the best option if you require applicants to apply at your own website or you have an application link to receive any applications). If you select this option it will reveal an additional field called:-
  • Talent Application Link: Add the website URL starting http:// (do not add an email address in this field)

ADDITIONAL JOB SPECIFICS
Gender: Using the drop down menu select one of the three options. (important option)

Age Required: Using the drop down menu select either a specific age range or if you want to keep things open leave it at ‘Any Age’.

Type: Add the type of production here, for example Web Video or TV Show or Audio Production.

Job Duration: Indicate how long talent will be needed for. For example 1 day, 2 hours, etc or if this is not known place TBC or TBA in this field.

Type of Role: Using the drop down menu select one of the five options. Paid roles should meet the UK minimum wage regulations. Remember that you will get what you pay for and voluntary staff cannot be contracted or relied upon.

Budget Allocated: Add your budget, this should show the maximum you are prepared to pay. If you feel unable to mention this I would recommend you place TBA or TBC instead or £ Negotiable £.

JOB DESCRIPTION
Short Description/Highlight: This should be a short overview of the job (e.g.) Presenters are required for new radio station launching soon in the South West. Beginners welcome!

Long Description: This is where you can place a full description of the type of person you are looking for, including any particular skills they may need, level of experience, physical attributes, availability, etc. The more precise you are and the more you tell them, then the more likely the applicants will match your needs.

DO NOT PLACE EMAIL ADDRESSES OR DIRECT LINKS TO APPLICATION IN EITHER OF THE TWO PREVIOUS SECTIONS - ANY APPLICATIONS WILL BE SENT TO YOUR PROFILE EMAIL ADDRESS OR THE LINK SPECIFIED IN MANAGE APPLICANTS ABOVE.

Preview Job: Use this button to check the layout and text is as you require it, ideal if you added bullet points Etc.

SAVE JOB: Once you have completed all of the above click the ‘Save Job’ button and your listing will then be saved directly to your dashboard ready for you to publish.

TO PUBLISH the role and make it LIVE on the website, go to your Dashboard and under the 'Jobs and Talent' menu you should click on 'My Job Listings' which will reveal all jobs you have posted and where you can re-edit current postings or re-post/re-edit previous job vacancies too. You most recent job will be listed first, click the Publish button.

YOUR JOB IS NOW LIVE and all you have to do now is wait for replies.

TO FINISH A JOB POST EARLY

If you cast the job quickly and need to finish an advert early: If you have found the perfect person or need to finish the casting before your deadline date, go to the Manage column in My Job Listings and click the warning triangle icon. This will display a message to members explaining that the job has been cast and stop further applications.

TO DELETE A JOB POST

NOTE: If you delete a job role, all applicants and associated messages will be deleted with it, so use this option with care and thought.

If you want to remove a job from the website and from your Job Listings, click the cross X icon in the Manage column in My Job Listings. 

GUIDELINES ON RE-PUBLISHING A PREVIOUS VACANCY

To re-publish your vacancy go to your Dashboard, then Jobs and Talent and then select My Job Listings. This will display ALL of the jobs you have posted on the website.

Even if you want to keep all the text the same, you must change the expiry date BEFORE you re-publish, otherwise the ad will go live and display the original deadline date. 

On the far right you will see a column called Manage, select the pencil icon and make any changes you feel are needed and don't forget to change the Application Deadline date, then save the job and then click the RE-PUBLISH button in the Action column and you are done.
