People say the problems with most job boards are that they are “expensive”, “complex” and “time-consuming”. These are just a couple of the adjectives HR Professionals use when describing Job Boards. The fact remains that Job Boards are one of the most effective ways to reach active job hunters.
Job Boards are expensive to post on and selecting one is an impossible choice. The prices often exclude the smaller agencies who have limited budgets or tight cash flow issues.
Our solution- here at strike-jobs.co.uk is to use us as and when you need. Almost like a pay-as-you go scheme. Along with a vastly reduced cost, in some cases, at a 1/3 of the price of the leading competitors, we offer a minimal price of £3-£5 per posting (agencies only rate) in comparison to the average job post of £7-£8 per posting.
Nobody enjoys a complex and difficult internet site, frustration sets in and you end up either giving up or kicking the hard drive. Super simple and fast functionality was key to the build of our site, the MD says “I hated complex and illogical internet sites, I have no patience at my age!”
“Time consuming to load the vacancies on all the boards”
It’s time consuming to post the same job over and over again on all the different Job Boards so how can we help?

Furthermore we have 41 integrators and aggregators which work to feed candidates to the site to get your company the maximum exposure and traffic.
One of the other issues companies have it the Volume of irrelevant applications – Obviously this is bound to happen with the overload of available work hungry candidates who just “want a job” but we have put 5 screening questions with autoreject with every vacancy to strip back as many “try ME’s” as we can.
