Inside job packs, standard & featured

In order to advertise your vacancies on Reinsurance.Careers you will need to purchase a job pack. You can buy a standard single job pack, a featured single job pack, a 3 standard job pack, 3 featured jobs pack, a 10 standard job pack, 10 featured jobs pack and a 20 standard job pack or a 20 featured jobs pack.

Standard job pack – A standard job pack consists of the amount of job listings available in the selected pack with no extra features. If you wish to add extra features to a standard pack you can do this, it will cost $100 for all add-ons for one job, (featured homepage and category feature) or $50 for either a homepage feature listing or a category feature listing. You can select to add-on extras once you’ve purchased the pack. It’s important to remember that if you purchase a standard 10 jobs pack and wish to add all extra features for all 10 listings within the pack, it will cost $100 per job – so $1,000 for all 10. Remember that big savings can be made through purchasing featured job packs.

Featured job packs – A featured job pack comes with two additional options, homepage and featured listing and featured category listing. Each featured job pack comes with the same amount of feature add-ons as job listings, so a 5 featured jobs pack will come with 5 homepage feature extras and 5 category feature extras. Once you have purchased a pack and come to selecting which pack to use for your latest listing, you can choose which add-ons to use with that job listing. You MUST still select the FREE feature add-ons when purchasing a featured pack or adding a job.

A homepage featured job will go under the feature heading on the homepage, above all the standard job listings, it will also be highlighted so that it stands out more. A category featured job will NOT appear on the homepage featured list (unless it has both add-ons applied), instead it will be highlighted and placed at the top of that category’s list.
