What is Broadbean?

Before we dive into the details, let’s take a step back and look at what the Broadbean job posting and distribution service actually is.

Broadbean is a service that essentially allows you to write, edit and publish a job once in their software, and have that job distributed to multiple different channels and websites, including your very own WordPress site.

Not only that, but any applications from candidates applying to the posted job, happening on the different job boards it is distributed too, including your own WordPress website are channelled back to Broadbean so you can view and keep track of all your application in one place.

It provides you with one place to manage all your jobs and your candidates and keep everything organised much easier. To a candidate, they see no difference as they just apply on whichever site they find the job on.

Why integrate Broadbean with your WordPress website

As a recruiter, you probably want to get maximum exposure for your jobs in order to encourage quality applications from different sources. At the same time, it makes sense for the jobs you have available for candidates to apply for to display on your own website.

Your WordPress site as a job board

Having these jobs appearing in the different destinations or job boards can mean it takes time to write and publish them on different platforms. A service such as Broadbean takes away this hassle, meaning that you simply write the job once and it gets published automatically to the job boards you chose and to your own site, once integrated.

This is also great if you need to make an edit to a job, maybe for a mistake in some of the data or a simple typo. Edits can be made from within Broadbean, in one place and then pushed out to all the different job boards in a click.

Easier candidate management for applications on your WordPress site

In addition to making job posting easier to manage it also makes candidate management easier. You likely have candidates applying for jobs on many job boards. With an integration with WordPress, it means that candidates can now apply for the same jobs on your website and their application appears within the Broadbean software along with all your other applications and candidates. Having them apply on your website, means you can keep them on your website for longer and the marketing opportunities that brings.

Candidates job search results find your WordPress site

If candidates are searching for jobs using a search engine, as well as finding the jobs on other job board, if integrated carefully using, for example for the correct schema markup, the jobs on your site can appear in the search results.
