Tip read this article to find out what you need to do before you can use Personio's promote feature.


Promoting Jobs via the Multiposting Feature

Once you have added an open position in Personio and all prerequisites for the promotion of positions have been met, you can post the position on external job boards to attract candidates. To facilitate easy posting of your vacancies across different job boards, we work with GoHiring, our partner for the promotion of positions. Click here to see an overview of the job boards that are available via Personio. This article explains which information Personio transfers to the external job boards. 

Using the multiposting feature, you can either book boards separately or take advantage of the Personio Posting Bundles. These bundles are cost-saving promoting packages that are tailored to your needs. Please see this article for more details.

Booking an external Posting

To post a position on external job boards via the multiposting feature, navigate to Recruiting > View details > Promote > My postings. Any postings that you may have already booked are displayed here. Now click on Promote to start the process and to be taken to the list of available job boards. You can follow these steps to proceed with the promotion of your position:


  1. Select all job boards where you would like to promote your position.

    The Suggested job boards at the top are proposed based on the information provided in the posting. Underneath, you'll find the Free job boards and other paid Premium job boards. Click here for an overview of all job boards available via Personio.

    Use filters to search for specific offers for Job Boards by Price, Duration, Country, and Target audience

    Tip the system always preselects the country stated in the location entered for the position. To advertise the position internationally, select the preferred language at the bottom under Post this position in before finalizing the posting.

  2. Click Next, to preview the posting.
    This will take you to a preview of the posting, where you can review which details Personio will transmit to the job board. At the top of the preview, you will see information about how your posting will be displayed in the job board. Depending on the selected ad type, the job board either adopts the design shown in the preview or integrates the details of the posting into its own design. 
  3. Checkout.
    Click on Proceed to checkout for a final review of your order. In the order overview you will see the selected job boards, runtime, language, and cost. If you are using a Posting Bundle from Personio or have individual frame contracts with job boards in place and stored in Personio, the displayed cost details will also include information on how much of your package has already been used, and the savings benefit you receive from using a Posting Bundle or existing contract. Finalize the booking by clicking on Place order.

Note ensure that your payment information is stored in your account under Settings > SUPPORT > Plan & Billing > Billing information so that publication costs can be settled via Personio. You'll also find all of your invoices here for download.


Management and Renewal of Postings

Once you have posted a job ad via the promote feature, you can go to your position, click View details, and select the Promote tab. Here you will see all job boards where you have promoted the position, and for each the following information:

  • Status of the posting
