How do I know if the candidate wants to work for me?2023-06-19T16:53:31+10:00

Hire staff for hospitality and retail often have less requirements than other industries. Most job seekers have easy job requirements: for example, they prefer jobs that are close to public transport, paying $25/hour minimum, or minimum 20 hours per week. They are most likely open to your job offers if it meets their job requirements.

What makes you difference from other job boards?2023-06-19T16:54:03+10:00

On other job boards, you post a job and then wait for applicants which may take days. Some charge you an upfront fee to post a job regardless of how many applicants you will receive. You’ll receive no more than a resume file and/or cover letter.

Spare Staff differences:

  • You’ll receive candidates instantly (for hospitality and retail only).
  • Our pool of candidates is maintained and up-to-date. Candidates are required to confirm they’re still looking for jobs once a week to keep their applications active.
  • No upfront cost to receive candidates.
  • If a candidate has received interview offers, or is no longer available, we’ll show this information in the candidate’s profile.
  • More than just a resume. Candidate profile includes: location, asking wage, availability, self-rated skills, and optional job preferences such as 20+ hours per week.
