Everything we do at Starget has one goal, to get your great applicants!

It’s a combination of writing persuasive job adverts that capture a job seekers attention.

Combined with advertising on loads of the UK’s best job boards so your advert gets seen my more job seekers.

Our Great Recruitment system includes a war chest of proven strategies and tactics that most don’t even know exist.

For example we discovered...
  • How many words to include in a job advert. This is especially important when so many job seekers are using mobile devices.
  • Why readability is SO important to persuading applicants. This includes understanding why certain sentences are difficult to understand.
  • The importance of the right advert title. Not only to ensure your advert can be found, but be found by the right job seekers.
  • Why it isn’t always right to advertise your precise location. It all depends on commuting links and population size.
  • Why the first few words of a job advert can massively impact job views.
  • How a tweak the format and headings to generate more applications.
  • Why listing the right benefits increases response by an average of 12%.
  • The importance of the right call-to-action that encourages more applications.
  • Why some job sites are better than others.
  • When is the best time of the day and week to publish a job.
We literally wrote the book on...

Frequently Asked Questions

We take payment in advance by credit or debit card. We can send a pro-forma invoice, but will need payment in advance.

For the avoidance of doubt, we don't offer any credit terms or send any invoices.

Advertising credits expire after 12 months. For this reason we recommend you don't purchase more than you need.

Yes, but it is a really bad idea, you'll likely lose 92% of applications!

We can either redirect straight from the job site. Or a slightly better option is let an applicant apply on the job site, then once we've got their CV, we request they visit your career site (so you don't 'lose' any applications).

But fundamentally, it is a really bad practice to forward applicants to your carer site.

You can employ everyone at no extra cost.

Every applicant will be emailed to you.

For the avoidance of doubt, we don't share your applicants with anyone else, or send you any fake CVs.

We do not provide a range or minimum number of applicants because it is dependent on so many factors such as: market factors; salary and benefits offered; geographical location; seasonality. However, many employers are pragmatic and know the number of applicants they receive is purely a reflection of these factors.

Be careful of suppliers who promise a minimum number of applicants, some share applicants who applied to other jobs to meet the minimum requirement and it may not be a good indication of quality.

For the avoidance of doubt, we never share your applicants with anyone else, or send you any fake CVs.

If you're covered by our money back guarantee, yes.

Equally we don’t like customers to be unhappy. Therefore, please speak with us and we will try to help.

Generally the job boards do not allow a job advert to be changed once it is live because of concerns you are attempting to fill multiple jobs within a single advert. However, please speak with us and we will try to help if possible.

Employer branding is not included as standard and we strongly do not recommend it. However, if this is essential please speak to us and we will attempt to accommodate your request.

No. Your job advert will not automatically be re-advertised or recharged unless you specifically ask us to. In which case we offer bulk deals that make our service even better value.

We charge a fixed-price of £199 or even less for bulk deals.

If you want your advert to be included on a job board not included in our standard collection, please contact us to see if we can include it or get preferential rates.

Your advert will typically be live for 28 days.

Be careful, some competitors offer a 28 days “campaign” which may include a seven day listing on one site, another seven day listing on another site and so on until 28 days has elapsed.

The only exception to this is Indeed. We allocate a budget for "Sponsored Listings" which when spent can result in an advert being removed.
