Monster forms part of Monster's extensive international recruitment platform and it exclusively features U.K. jobs. Their advanced recruitment technology connects employers with available talent. While employers pay to post jobs, job seekers can upload resumes and apply for jobs at no cost.
While the platform does enjoy a respectable presence in the U.K., its average monthly traffic from within the country doesn't get close to what local market leaders Reed.co.uk, Totaljobs, and CV-Library get, each of which attracts more than 7 million local website visits. If reach is what you're after, these present better alternatives.
- Monster offers various job posting plans to suit different hiring needs.
- Single-use packages allow for up to five job posts with reduced rates for each additional post.
- The site features a resume database of candidates for employers to search through.
- Job ads are syndicated to the Monster network comprising hundreds of local news sites.
- Job posts are promoted via the platform's social media channels.
- Monster will assign a dedicated point person for niche recruitment needs.
- Employers can contact candidates directly through built-in text and email tools.
- Monster features a specific U.K. portal, and job seekers can filter jobs by location to connect with local employers.
- Employers can start and stop job postings at any time.
- Employer branding and increased job post visibility are charged extra.
- Resume views are limited to varying degrees on all paid plans.
