It’s fast and easy to post and manage your jobs in your Purpose Jobs dashboard.
To get started, select ‘Jobs’ in the left-hand navigation bar. This will take you to the ‘Manage Jobs’ page, where you can view a full list of your active and deactivated job postings.
To post a brand new job, click '+ New Job'. To make changes to an existing job, simply click ‘Edit’. To turn a position on or off, toggle the ‘On/Off’ button.
Note: The 'Import Jobs' button is available for use with partners who have an ATS integration setup.
To complete your job post, fill in the fields shown below.
Role, Location, Employment Type
Job seekers use these fields to search for roles. Make sure to fill them in accurately.
Descriptions are required. Jobs with blank descriptions will not display to job seekers.
Skills are parsed automatically into two fields: "required skills" and "preferred skills". You are free to delete and/or add alternative skills from the original parsed list. Required skills will be limited to a quantity of two while preferred skills are limited to twelve.
Video / Audio
On each job post, you will have the option to add a media file (video or audio), giving candidates the opportunity to hear more about the role first hand. We recommend asking someone who currently sits in this position or the intended manager for the role.
To add a media file, scroll down to the bottom of the job post.
If you’re adding the file yourself, we recommend clicking “Add Video / Audio”. This will open a new tab via VideoAsk, the system we use to process the media files.
If someone else is creating the recording, please use the clipboard button or right click on the “Add Video / Audio” to copy the link. Share the URL, along with the email / instructions below, to the identified team member.
Note: Once you open the link, it will only be valid for 7 days. You will need to recopy the link if your team member does not complete the task before the link expires.

Then, check the job posting to make sure it’s been added successfully and to add Name + Title of the recorder.
Upload A File
You do have the option to upload a video or audio file if you have one already created. Just remember, these videos should be specific to the job. Any general company videos should be added to your company profile page. The media file must also be under 120 seconds in length.
To upload a file, click the "Add Video / Audio" link at the bottom of the job description as shown above. Select the type of file you wish to upload. At the top of the recording screen, on the far right, is a cloud with an up arrow. Click this to upload your file.
Complete the steps as described above to confirm the media file added and to update the name and job title of the individual submitting the recording.
