Step 6: Listing Description
You can copy and paste an existing job ad here or enter a new one from scratch. Use the formatting buttons at the top of the box to format the text.
To attract the best candidates, it is important to use a compelling job description that not only explains what type of applicant you are looking for, but also why these applicants would want to apply for the job. If you are writing a new description, we recommend including sections such as: About the employer, About the role, About the ideal candidate and About the compensation/rewards.
The Short Job Summary is optional and should only be 1-2 sentences in length (maximum of 300 characters). This section is a great way to help your job stand out to motivated job seekers who have subscribed to email alerts.
Once you have finished filling out the information on this page, click Next.
A pop up box will appear to remind you NOT to include your contact information in the job description. All applicants will apply via an orange Apply Now button that will appear at the bottom of your job posting. You will receive an email the following day with instructions on where to find the applicants who've applied and how to review them.
Click Continue to proceed to the next page. If you have added your contact information and need to remove it, click Cancel.
Step 7: Requirements
The Requirements page allows you to specify the skills, experience and education you are looking for in your ideal candidate. It is split into three sections and in each of these sections you can choose from a pre-populated list of standard entries or enter your own custom requirements.
Eligibility - In this section you’ll specify the true "must-haves" for the role. By default, applicants that do not meet all of these minimum requirements will not be shown in your candidate list.
We recommend no more than 2 or 3 eligibility questions in total. The drop-down menu provides a number of standard eligibility questions or you can type a custom question directly in the field.
For each eligibility question, you will need to specify the desired answer (yes or no). Click the green + button beside each eligibility requirement to add to the list. You can edit and delete previous entries by using the icons to the right of the question box.
Skills & Experience - This is where you’ll specify the minimum level of specific skills and experience the ideal candidate should possess. We generally recommend between 3-8 in total. Pre-populated choices are available via the drop-down menu, but you can also create custom entries.
For each entry you create, you’ll need to indicate its overall importance related to the position, as well as the desired minimum years of experience. When you have finished making your choices, click the green + button to the right of each requirement to add to the list. You can edit and delete previous entries by using the icons to the right of each field.
Education & Qualifications - This is where you will specify the education level the role requires. Pre-populated options are available via the drop-down menu, but custom entries can also be made. You can optionally add a field of study for each qualification. In each case you should also specify the importance of the particular qualification.
When you have finished making your choices, click the green + button to add each requirement to the list. You can edit and delete previous entries by using the icons to the right of each field.
Once you are finished, click Next.
Step 8: Work Environment
This page allows you to describe the working environment for the position by dragging the sliders on the page relative to how you would describe the working environment. To get a full description of each option on the scale, just roll your mouse over the text. Don't worry about being too exact on this page, as describing the working environment is somewhat subjective.
Once you have finished adjusting the sliders, click Next.
Step 9: Job Preview
This page allows you to preview your listing. If no changes need to be made, click Next. If you want to change any part of your listing, just click the green Back button and you can edit as much as you like. If you want to save the listing and submit it later, click Save Draft.

Please Note: When you submit your job posting, it first goes into Pending Approval. All CharityVillage Account Managers must review job listings in their territory before pushing them live to our site. This process is in place to ensure all postings are legitimate, formatting and spelling are correct, etc.
Account Managers have 24hrs to approve a listing, but normally they are up within the hour or two unless you post after hours or over the weekend. If this is the case, your listing will be approved the following business day.
Still have questions? Please contact your local Account Manager. Their contact information can be found here.
