JobCaster

JobCaster is a simple tool which enables you to publish job adverts from our job-boards on your own website.

For example, if you are a secondary school, college or university then you can list the latest graduate or apprenticeship positions on your website for your students. Or maybe your a local recruiter or agency who wants to show your latest positions on your website.

To publish the ten most recent job adverts, you simply need to include the following HTML within your website:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
  website = "jobsinkent";
</script>
<script src="http://www.jiksoftware.ltd.uk/jobcaster.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

You can customise the jobs that are returned by using a query field. For example, to return only graduate job adverts you would use:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
  website = "jobsinkent";
  query = "graduate";
</script>
<script src="http://www.jiksoftware.ltd.uk/jobcaster.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

You can even customise the look and style of how the job adverts are displayed:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
  website = "jobsinkent";
  query = "graduate";
  width = "300";
  height = "250";
  background = "FFFFFF";
  text = "333333";
  links = "4D0099";
  border = "CCCCCC";
  font = "Arial";
  padding = "15";
</script>
<script src="http://www.jiksoftware.ltd.uk/jobcaster.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

This would result in the following appearing on your website:
