Make the right start by creating a job ad that will attract your ideal applicant and take advantage of our free classified section, for members, to hire your next workplace legend.
Here are some helpful tips from MA for creating your next job ad:
1. POINT OF DIFFERENCE
- Does your practice have a point of difference?
- Has it won awards?
- Do you consistently receive great reviews?
- Do you have workplace benefits and flexibility showing a great work culture?
All these things can potentially catch the eye of your next candidate. Let them know all about what makes your workplace attractive and don’t leave it to the interview. Don’t be shy to expose your real self – let them know what the business is about and get them excited from the get-go!
If there are similar advertised healthcare positions available, what position would you choose and why? What keywords, phrases drew you in and made you want to read more?
They say the devil is in the details but make sure you summarise and highlight those details in an easy-to-digest format.
- Get to the point fast.
- Create bullet points, replace paragraphs with sentences - Job posts with 150 words or less got candidates to apply 17.8% more frequently than job posts with 450 to 600 words according to seek.com
And with the mobile device overtaking the humble desktop accessing our website according to our MA Google analytics report in December 2021, the same principles apply while optimising our website.
- Get to the point fast.
- Create bullet points, replace paragraphs with sentences, create a bold heading.
- Make your content scroll worthy.
3. INCLUDE YOUR LOGO
Your logo says a lot about your organisation. Your business is conveying several messages, ideas, and values in the simplest form possible to your audience. People generally remember pictures rather than words. It’s another way to stand out from the crowd of employers eager to grab your attention.

If you really want to stand out from the crowd, consider investing a small amount into creating a video ad campaign as they are proving to be one of the most effective forms of advertising, as moving images are easier for your potential candidate to recall than static words and images.
