SEEK Classic ads will now be variably priced based on a number of factors including candidate availability, location you’re hiring in and average salary for the role.
Previously, all SEEK Classic ads cost the same, regardless of the role you were looking to fill. For example, the price of a job ad was the same whether you were searching for an Engineer or Call Centre Operator.
Now, the price you pay for a Classic ad will vary, reflecting a number of factors, including the availability of candidates and the location you’re hiring in.
This means that we may be lowering the prices for roles where there is high candidate availability in the location you’re hiring in.
In turn, if you are looking to hire for a role where there is low availability of candidates in the location you’re hiring in, the price of your Classic ad may be higher.
This also means that the price of a Classic ad for the same role in the same location may vary at different points in time, as candidate availability varies.
You can still upgrade to StandOut ads by paying an additional fixed fee on top of the variable Classic ad price.
Right now, these changes apply only to customers on subscription contracts.
Ad pack and casual purchasers will transition at a later date in 2020.
