A Guide to TNL Jobs for Recruiters

To help you start finding the best Early Years practitioners for your setting, here’s That Nursery Life’s handy guide to using TNL Jobs!

Organisation Registration

To begin, you need to register your organisation with TNL Jobs.

Go to the Login page and enter your details. You'll then see your Profile page where you can register with an organisation.

If your organisation is not found, make sure you have the correct setting name and postcode. If this still doesn't work, contact TNL using the webchat feature at the bottom right of the page.

If your organisation is found, you can link your account. There may be another verification process involved if your setting manager needs to approve this.

Without being registered to a setting, you will not be able to see the Recruiter Dashboard.

Recruiter Dashboard

You can find the Recruiter Dashboard using the TNL Jobs link in the top right menu, or switch between TNL and TNL Jobs using the twin buttons on the top left of the screen.

On the TNL Jobs homepage you can see job listings (three featured listings will always be at the top of the screen). To filter these job listings, use the suggested filters list on the left side of the page.

On the Recruiter Dashboard you can see your Active, Paused and Ended job listings, along with how many candidates applied for them.

On the left of the homepage are your Recruitment Stats, covering:

  • Current payment plan
  • Active listings
  • Paused listings
  • Free “Feature” listings credits
  • New listing credits
  • Applicant Review credits
  • Ended listings
  • Lifetime stats

Depending on the pricing plan, you can get a number of free standard job listings and Feature listings per month. Once a job listing has been created you can choose to have it featured at the top of the jobs page. The job will also be included in Google Jobs. If you have no more free Feature listing credits you can buy more.

Additional New listing and Applicant Review credits can also be purchased in different size bundles to suit your budget. Applicant Review credits allow you to view an applicant’s CV in order to contact them.

Find Potential Candidates

At the bottom left of the Recruiter Dashboard is TNL’s new Find Potential Candidates feature. Clicking this button and selecting one of your live job listings from the drop-down menu will allow you to see how many suitable TNL users there are in the job’s catchment area. You will not be able to see their personal details, but you will be able to pay to give them a notification that there is a job matching their skills available in their area.

Early Years’ First Free Jobs Board

Because you can add as many jobs to TNL Jobs as you want, without paying anything, we are the first free job board focused solely on EY settings. Using the basic free listing option you automatically get 10 free Applicant Review credits per month. If you want a little more, however, you might be interested in one of our price plans.
