See a list of SEEK pricing.

Is a SEEK advert worth paying for?

While there are many places to advertise jobs free these days, it may be worth it for you to run a paid SEEK ad, especially if you know a lot of your top talent searches for jobs there.

See a list of SEEK pricing.

Will SEEK advertise my jobs on other boards too?

There are many job boards that aggregate jobs from around the internet, including from other job boards. But there's nothing that explicitly says that if you post a job on SEEK it will be picked up anywhere else.

See a list of SEEK pricing.

Can I advertise on SEEK for free?

We have not seen any free trials, coupons, or promos that offer the use of SEEK talent services for free.

How to advertise on SEEK cost-effectively?

  1. Try a standard job post without any of the extra cost add-ons.
  2. Consider upgrading to a StandOut or Premium job ad.

Regardless of how expensive the add-ons are, none of these will help if your job post is poorly written. [See our free job description template]](
