How does HOP feed live job and apprenticeship vacancies?

Where does HOP get my jobs from?

Our job data is supplied from Adzuna.

Adzuna gather jobs from all over the internet (they estimate that they have 90-95% of job postings at any given time) and allow us to display them on our portal. By taking this approach we are able to present a comprehensive view of employment opportunities in our area.

What can I do to make sure my job is listed on HOP?

For a job to be listed on HOP, it must have a Hertfordshire based postcode and be listed on Adzuna. To make sure your job is listed on Adzuna you can either upload it directly to the Adzuna platform or upload it onto a platform that Adzuna pulls from.

To find out which platforms Adzuna pulls from, do a straightforward search for jobs and view the results. You will see jobs appear from the likes of Total Jobs, Reed, Monster, CV Library etc. Then you can decide which platform is best suited to your business

Adzuna also pulls jobs from the UK Government's Find A Job service. This may be the easiest way to make sure your job is listed on HOP.

What to consider when advertising a job?

On the portal, only the first 500 characters of the description are shown. To read the full description the user can click 'read more' which will take them to the job listing either on Adzuna or their partner's platform. Ensure those first 500 characters give the potential applicant a good overview and encourage them to want to know more. The full job description is queried when a user searches for a job.

Citizens Advice have published some guidance Job Adverts - How they can be improved for Job Hunters and Recruiters which includes information on adhering to the Advertising Code.
