Hiring websites for cafe jobs: comparing prices and key features

As a cafe owner, one of your top priorities is finding staff with a combination of the right kind of experience, commitment and attitude. Unfortunately, most cafe owners have a tough time finding these people. To help you out, we’ve created a list of some of the most popular job boards for cafe jobs.

Take a look at some of the top recruitment websites for cafe jobs and how they compare on things like price and key features.

seek.com.au

SEEK offers three different packages for posting a job ad - classic, standout and premium. All of them allow you to post an ad, which will run on the site for 30 days and you can make unlimited changes during this period.

Some of the main differences between the different options are that with a StandOut ad, you’ll be able to add your logo to promote your brand and a Premium ad will give you faster access to twice as many applicants on average plus priority listing in search results.

Candidate management tools

As an advertiser, you can access SEEK’s candidate management tools that let you:

  • track and manage your candidates
  • send bulk emails to schedule interviews or to inform unsuccessful candidates
  • review resumes quickly
  • add candidates sourced outside of SEEK
  • store all of your candidates’ info in one place

Pricing

Classic ad: $275 + GST

Standout ad: $330 + GST

Premium ad: $395-$695 + GST

There’s no cost for registering an account as an employer.

au.indeed.com

Indeed offers an aggregated list of job ads from across multiple company websites and job boards. It uses a very simple format and emails you updates to your registered id. It doesn’t have a fancy layout but it does well in terms of delivering a high quantity of potential candidates.

Pricing

Indeed has a unique pay-for-performance pricing model - which basically means instead of paying a fixed cost for an ad, you only pay when someone clicks on your job to view it - similar to a social media ad.

While you can post ads for free as well, a sponsored ad will reach more candidates and therefore bring you better results. The portal lets you change your budget or stop promoting your job any time you want.

Your budget will depend on various factors like the type of jobs you’re advertising and your location. There’s no cost for registering an account as an employer.

gumtree.com.au

Gumtree is also a popular site to reach potential employees in the cafe industry - but keep in mind, this might be a better board if you’re looking for casual rather than full-time staff. Posting a job ad is quick and easy but job seekers can’t upload their resumes for you to review. You’ll need to provide your contact details in the ad so they can reach you directly.

Pricing

The best part about Gumtree is that you can post an ad for free and edit it as and when you like. But they do also offer a number of paid options with additional features such as bumping up your ad to the top, letting you add a company logo and keeping you on the priority top ad listing.

Take a look at the pricing options:

Free: $0

Plus: $65 (comes with a weekly 'Bump Up' to top spot)

Featured: $85 (lets you add your company logo)

Premium: $199 (puts you on the 'Top Ad' listing and lets you include three selling point)

coffeejobs.com

Unlike the other job boards that work across industries, coffeejobs.com is a specialised website that only works for the hospitality sector. They have separate categories on the website for baristas, wait staff, roasters, kitchen staff and managers, making it easier for people looking for a specific kind of a job.

Pricing

You can choose from a number of price options - while all ads run for 30 days, a featured ad is highlighted for the life of the listing and is pinned to the top of the page for 7 days.

Single job posting: $70

Featured job listing: $120

Buy 4, get 5: $280

Buy 8, get 10: $560

There’s no additional cost for registering an account as an employer.

skilld.com

This is a web app that's tailored for the hospitality sector - it works like a match-making service (something like Tinder) to SMEs and skilled workers. Once you sign up for an account, you will get immediate access to relevant candidates based on their:

  • Work history
  • Availability
  • Location
  • Citizenship or visa
  • Career goals

You will be presented with a range of candidates who are looking to work in a place like yours. You can hit 'Interested' on the profile of a candidate you like and if there's mutual interest, your subscription will unlock their phone number so you can contact them. 

 

Pricing

While you can browse around and look for suitable candidates for free, if you want to contact a particular individual, you'll need to sign up for the monthly plan, which is priced at $50. But there's no contract so you can cancel the plan any time - this means, you only need to pay when you're looking to hire someone. 

Because the format for skilld is different from traditional job boards, you can sign up for a free account on skilld.com for a better idea on how a candidate's information is presented.  

backpackerjobboard.com.au

If you’re looking at tapping into the backpacker market for short term roles, this site works well for finding people who’re on a gap year or on a working holiday visa.

Pricing

You can post an ad for free or look at one of the featured upgrades to include standout features and promoted listing.

Basic: Free

Featured: $20 + GST (includes standout listing + sidebar feature)

Premium: $40 + GST (includes standout listing + promotions on sidebars, homepage, category page and location page)

There’s no additional cost for registering an account as an employer.
