Choosing Arbjobs.com for Targeted Recruitment

Our jobs board is dedicated exclusively to the recruitment of specialists in arboriculture, tree surgery, and tree care. As such, you can be sure that every job you advertise with us will reach your target audience. What’s more, our enhanced featured adverts promote your job opening out to our social media network, reaching more potential applicants on a variety of platforms. 

Finding Arborist Staff

We know that the success of any recruitment campaign depends on three main things: 

  1. Targeting the right jobseekers
  2. Its appeal to potential applicants
  3. The availability of applicants 

That is why on Arbjobs, each job post can be tailored to suit your recruitment needs, with job boosts available to push your advert to the top of the listings, and premier job alerts that allow you to email your opportunities to jobseekers matching your criteria from our database of 9,000+ registered tree care specialists.

Our team has also put together a series of video guides, to help you draft a recruitment campaign that will catch the attention of potential jobseekers and drive more engagement from qualified applicants. 

The Arbjobs board drives 15,000+ visitor sessions every month. In 2022 we ran over 1,000 recruitment adverts with 724,421 page views creating over  2,491* direct job applications.

*2,491 figure does not include results from external application systems. 

Posting a Tree Surgery Job Advert

To post an opportunity, sign up for a company account, and browse our pricing page to find the right plan for your needs. Choose a one-off featured advert for individual positions or create your own corporate page to effectively promote multiple positions and increase your visibility as an employer. 

Creating the Perfect Arborist Recruitment Advert

Creating an appealing and comprehensive advert that gains and maintains the attention of potential applicants will make all the difference to the quantity and quality of your leads. As well as telling jobseekers what you are looking for, you should detail the benefits and what makes your company or team the place to be. Research the market to understand how you can competitively place yourself and stand out among other employers. 

To increase your availability, use every marketing tool available to you. And if the availability of qualified staff in your area is limited, consider expanding your reach by offering to help with short-term accommodation for  applicants considering relocation.

Approximately 80% of job seekers are now viewing jobs via their smartphone so keep adverts informative and appealing but concise. Finally, make applying easy by favouring early human contact or direct messages,  and avoiding large formal application forms if you can.
