Deputy Hire allows you to publish your organisation's job listings on a dedicated career page. When you connect your Deputy account to Indeed, you can also choose to publish the same job listing on Indeed.

Connecting Indeed to Deputy Hire
In order to publish the jobs you create on Deputy Hire to Indeed, first you would have to connect Indeed to Deputy Hire. You can do so either from the Hire settings page or when publishing a new job:
Connect to Indeed from the Hire settings page
1. On the People tab in Deputy, click on Hire Team Member HR.
2. Select Settings from the menu on the left and scroll to the Job Boards section at the bottom of the page. Click Connect to connect to Indeed.
Connect to Indeed when publishing a new job
When attempting to publish a new job listing, you will be prompted to select where that job will be published. All jobs will be published on your Deputy careers page, so that option will always be ticked by default. If you would like the job to be posted to Indeed too, you can click Connect on the Indeed row and tick the Indeed option once connected.
This will then allow your new job to be posted to both Deputy and Indeed.
If you have an existing Indeed Employer account
If you have an existing Indeed Employer account, Deputy will ask for your permission to access your Indeed Employer account in order to post your jobs to Indeed.
Note: It is possible to connect Deputy to your Indeed account without having an Indeed Employer account, but publishing your job to Indeed will result in a failure if your Employer account is not yet set up.
Simply click Continue after reading the instructions.
Please don’t close the Indeed connection popup until fully authenticated to your Indeed account.
If you do not have an existing Indeed Employer Account
If you do not have an existing Indeed Employer account, you will be asked to create a new Indeed Employer account instead when attempting to connect Deputy to Indeed.
When creating a new Indeed account, you will be asked to confirm your email address. Open the email to verify and return to the connection popup first opened by Deputy Hire to continue the account creation process.
Once you’ve created your Indeed Employer account through Deputy Hire, your Indeed Employer account will be credited with $250 USD (or equivalent in your currency, see table below) in sponsored jobs credit for you to try sponsoring your jobs.
|Country||Amount of sponsor credits in your Indeed Employer account|
Note: The sponsor credit will only apply at the time of Indeed invoicing.
According to Indeed worldwide data, sponsored jobs are 3.5 times more likely to result in a hire than free job listings posted on Indeed.
You can see that your Deputy Hire account is connected to Indeed on the Settings page of Hire.
Publishing to Indeed
To publish your job on Indeed, simply click Publish after creating a new job listing.
Tick to select Indeed and click Publish.
Viewing published jobs on Indeed
After you’ve published your job to Indeed, you will see this success screen which lets you promote or view the published job on Indeed. You can revisit this screen by clicking on the job you’ve just created.
- Clicking View will take you to the job listing on Indeed and you can modify the listing from your Indeed account.
- Clicking Promote will allow you to sponsor your job on Indeed.
Potential errors when publishing to Indeed
Job location is unrecognised by Indeed
Indeed requires you to have a valid location before posting your job to Indeed. Please check your location is set up properly with a valid address by navigating to Location Settings.
Employer account not yet set up on Indeed
Whilst you can connect Indeed accounts to Deputy Hire, to publish your job as an employer on Indeed, you will need an Indeed Employer account connected to Deputy Hire.
If you don’t have an Indeed Employer account, publishing to Indeed from Deputy will fail.
Failure to adhere to Indeed job posting guidelines
There are a few reasons why your new job may not initially appear on Indeed, including failure to adhere to their job posting guidelines. Even if your job appeared in the search results initially, it can still stop being displayed later. Visit the Indeed help centre here for a list of reasons why your jobs might be removed or not posted on Indeed.
Updating published jobs on Indeed
After a job is published on Indeed, you can still make updates to the job through Deputy Hire. Simply click on the job you've published to Indeed, edit it and tick Indeed when publishing the job.
It's important that any changes you make on the published job directly on Indeed will not be reflected on Deputy, and you should make changes to the job on Deputy if you want to see the changes both on Deputy Hire and Indeed.
Sponsoring published jobs on Indeed
Sponsored Jobs are paid listings that receive optimal placement in Indeed search results as compared with organic, or unpaid, listings. While organic postings will be buried in the search results as new jobs are posted, sponsored jobs will stay visible to applicants for a longer period of time. According to Indeed data, Sponsored Jobs are over 3.5 times more likely to result in a hire compared with free listings. Visit Indeed to learn more about Sponsored Jobs.
Sponsored job budget
According to Indeed, sponsored job budgets average between $5 to $15 per day, but the ideal daily budget depends on the type of job you are offering, the location of the job and how quickly you need to fill the position. Indeed gives you the flexibility to choose how much you want to spend to find the right candidates within your timeframe.
If you want more applications, you can increase your budget. If you are getting too many applications, you can reduce your budget or stop sponsoring altogether.
Potential errors when promoting a job
Insufficient, missing or invalid payment option
When you sponsor a job while having insufficient funds, missing or invalid payment options in your Indeed Employer account, the job will still be posted on Indeed as a free job. In order for the job promotion to be applied correctly, you must update your Indeed Employer account with a valid payment option. Visit Indeed to learn more about updating your billing information.
Archiving a job already posted on Indeed
When you archive a job listing in Deputy Hire that you’ve already published to Indeed via Deputy Hire, Deputy will set the status of the Indeed job to “deleted”.
This will result in its removal from Indeed search results, but you can still find the job record within your Indeed employer account should you wish to repost it.
Disconnecting your Indeed account
If you no longer wish to have your Indeed account connected to Deputy, go to the Deputy Hire Settings page and scroll to the bottom of the page. Click Disconnect and your Deputy account will no longer be connected to Indeed.
This will not affect any jobs already posted on Indeed and will not affect any ongoing promotions or sponsored job listings.
After disconnecting your Indeed account, you can still make changes to your published jobs on Indeed by logging in on Indeed.
