Get started

First of all you need a Facebook page.

  • They are FREE to create and do not require any developer skills. If your marketing department will not give you free reign to use the company Facebook page, create a new page here:

  • Optimise your page with a logo and banner heading.

  • Make sure the Facebook page “info” is completed correctly to enhance optimisation in Facebook search results.

  • Activate the jobs tab. Go to the page settings / templates and tabs and ensure the “jobs” tab is activated.

  • Post a job from the jobs tab. The job will automatically list in Facebook Marketplace and you are up and running.

  • Share your job. Pages can join Facebook Groups. By simply joining a local group as a page you can easily share your job posts to a wider audience - free job posting.
