Review:

Tes is a global digital community that provides schools and teachers with a wide range of resources to support their developmental needs. Tes Jobs offers a Staff Management subscription, which gives Canadian employers access to a global network of education professionals and allows them to post job ads and track applications in one central location.

The platform, however, does not feature any tools to increase job ad exposure and visibility, such as featured posts, job ad distribution to other job boards, or social media sharing. Additionally, pricing is not available on the site, making it difficult to gauge the platform's affordability when compared to other niche job portals.

Pros:

  • Tes Jobs offers access to a database of teaching professionals in over 230 countries.
  • The Staff Management subscription includes multiple user access and unlimited job postings.
  • Schools can manage the entire hiring process from a central dashboard that includes applicant tracking tools.
  • Users can create a dedicated school directory page to showcase their school's culture and ethos.
  • The platform's job search algorithm uses multiple data points to help employers receive more relevant applications.
  • Schools can communicate with candidates through a direct messaging system.
  • Automatic reminders and validated forms help keep track of reference requests and responses.
  • Subscription holders receive unlimited access to Tes's online training courses for teaching staff.
  • Anonymous well-being essays allow schools to collect feedback from employees and segment and analyze the information.
  • Tes's fully digital magazine keeps staff updated on the latest industry news, trends, and teaching best practices.

Cons:

  • Tes Jobs does not offer a free job-posting plan.
  • Pricing is not readily available on the site.
  • The platform lacks key hiring tools, such as job syndication and social media sharing.
  • There are no Canadian customer support channels.
  • The website is not available in French.
  • Only a small percentage of traffic originates from Canada.

Reputation:

Tes has a rating of 1.4 out of 5 on Trustpilot based on the reviews of over 40 users. Complaints range from poor teaching resources and job matching algorithms to the refusal to refund subscription fees and the closure of its community forums without warning during the pandemic.

Pricing:

Tes does not readily display pricing information on its website. To find out more about their annual subscription plan and how to advertise, fill out the online form on its website, and a representative of Tes will be in touch.

Tes Jobs vs. Jobs in Education:

Jobs in Education is an education job board based in Canada. Their job posting plans start at C$299.00 per post, and they also offer discounted bulk packages and post enhancements. In contrast, Tes only offers an annual subscription, and users have to contact them for a quote. However, Tes offers a wide range of teaching resources which the former lacks.

Tes Jobs vs. Learn4Good:

Learn4Good is a teaching job board with a global reach and offers free and paid options. Both Learn4Good and Tes provide access to a database of millions of teaching professionals. Of the two, Learn4Good offers more hiring tools, including a CV database and a six-month job post duration. In contrast, Tes offers a wider range of teaching resources.

Tes Jobs vs. Indeed:

As one of the world's largest global job boards, Indeed offers far greater reach than Tes. However, it does not offer the same targeted approach or wealth of teaching resources as the latter. With both free and paid options, Indeed is an attractive option for employers on a budget, whereas Tes only has an annual subscription plan.
