Newsletter advertising

Resume database access


Job ad distribution



The Loop enabled employers to connect with a database of over 165,000 uniquely qualified professionals across every creative category. The platform allowed users to categorize, preview, and publish job ads in two minutes, and candidates could apply via The Loop, the employers' websites, or via email.

While The Loop was a valuable choice for easily finding and hiring creative talent, it lacked certain key hiring tools, such as resume database access and job ad distribution. There was also no free posting plan for companies on a tight recruitment budget.


  • The Loop allowed employers to advertise a wide range of creative-related job opportunities at all career levels.
  • Listings could be featured at the top of the site's job list for increased visibility.
  • The job board was used by more than 125,000 professionals across Australia.
  • Employers could create and publish job ads in under two minutes.
  • Companies could easily manage job posts and applications from their online dashboard.
  • Vacancies could be added to the job board's weekly newsletter, which was sent to more than 90,000 registered job seekers.


  • The Loop did not offer a free job posting plan.
  • The job board lacked resume searches, an applicant tracking system, and candidate matching services.
  • Listings weren't distributed to other job boards.

The Loop vs. Scout:

Both The Loop and Scout catered to the local creative industry. However, Scout offers a few more recruitment tools, such as ATS integrations, which The Loop lacked. While The Loop charged A$79.00 +GST per post, Scout charges A$149.00 for a standard listing, making the latter the costlier choice.

The Loop vs. Grapevine Jobs:

Like The Loop did, Grapevine Jobs offers featured listings for added reach. However, The Loop was the more affordable choice, charging A$79.00 +GST per post, compared to Grapevine Jobs' A$90.00 +GST per post. Of the two, only Grapevine Jobs has unlimited job posting durations and social media promotion tools.

The Loop vs. CareerOne:

CareerOne is a leading Australian job board that allows employers to post standard job ads and preview qualified candidates for free, whereas The Loop's pricing started at A$79.00 per post. On the other hand, if you are looking for a targeted community of creative professionals, then The Loop would have been the better option for your hiring needs.
