How can I create a successful job description to get more applications for my Coople jobs?

Especially during times of high demand, it’s important to make your job description stand out in order to attract top talent. We’ve compiled a handy guide with things you can easily implement to improve your chances of hiring for your Coople jobs – Apply these 9 tips and you won’t be short of applicants!


1. Select several Coople job profiles

To reach a wider audience with your Coople jobs, we suggest that you select as many relevant job profiles as you can. This will give your job more visibility and consider more workers with various job profiles.


2. Write a descriptive job title

Your job title is the first thing Cooplers see on the marketplace – so make sure it’s a good one. Try to be concise, while still including the most important aspects and perks, such as the location and duration. This will guarantee more views and likely more applicants.

Here’s an example of a great job title:

Logistics All-rounder (80-100%) August – December


3. Write a detailed job description

Just like the title, your job description will help you sell the job to Cooplers. Take some time to summarise the nature of the shift, your expectations, and any other things workers may need to know about the job. Don’t make it too long, but remember: a little effort goes a long way, and a friendly tone will make a good impression on applicants.


4. Offer benefits to stand out, and include them in your job description

Any perks you can offer Cooplers as part of the job are very likely to put you ahead of the competition. Whether it’s free tickets to a concert or paid-for accommodation, workers will surely appreciate the gesture and remember you as a top hiring company.

Tip: If you offer accommodation or other perks for the job, make sure to include this in the title and job description.


5. Consider offering higher hourly wages

It’s no secret that the hourly wage is a major part of what makes a job competitive. If you’re following all the tips in our guide but are still not receiving many applications, it might be because your offered hourly wages are lower compared to similar jobs on the marketplace. A small adjustment can make a big difference. Try it out.


6. Be proactive and quick to hire workers

Once you’ve received some applications, don’t let them pile up and make the Cooplers wait. Making quick hiring decisions will likely result in Cooplers coming back for your future jobs, and with time, you’ll be able to build a reliable pool of your favourite workers.

Keep in mind that once your job has received a certain number of applications, it will no longer be shown on the marketplace until you’ve declined some of the candidates.


7. Consider splitting long shifts

If your job has particularly long shifts, unusual hours, or several long breaks, consider splitting it and hiring several workers. Two shifts of 5 hours may be easier to fill than one shift of 10 hours, assigned to one person.


8. Keep the requirements simple

The more requirements your job has, the fewer suitable workers will be available. If you require an elaborate dress code, very specific skills, or other unusual prerequisites, chances are that Cooplers will be discouraged to apply.


9. Find the right time to advertise your job

Finding the right time to post and advertise your job can increase your chances of hiring. Try to put up your jobs a few days or weeks in advance, at most. If your job isn’t until December but you’re posting it in September, it’s less likely to receive many applicants and more likely to receive cancellations later on.

Occupational safety: How to avoid accidents during a job

Even though it is quite rare, emergencies do happen every now and then – even in the workplace. That’s why occupational safety should be a top priority for both companies and workers.

To ensure that all jobs are safe, it’s extremely important to know before and during a job how everyone involved can behave in a safe manner, and how to react in the event of an accident.

Please make sure to observe the following points at all times:

Important safety rules for workers

What do I need to know before starting a job?

  • The hiring company must inform employees in detail about possible dangers and important rules of conduct.

  • Employees must always wear the required protective equipment and follow the safety precautions.

  • Employees should always know where first aid kits, alarm plans, fire extinguishers, escape routes, and assembly points are located.

  • In case of danger, follow the rule “Stop – do not continue working until the danger has been eliminated”.

What do I have to do in an emergency?

  • Secure the accident site and the injured person.

Important safety rules for companies

Prior to the start of a job, companies are obliged to determine and clearly communicate to their employees how to behave safely and what needs to be done in an emergency.

What must be ensured before a job?

  • Define hazards for the company and establish vital safety rules.

  • Organise necessary protective equipment and safe work tools.

  • Ensure maintenance of buildings, facilities, work equipment and personal protective equipment.

  • Compile handling instructions for hazardous materials.

In an emergency, follow the rule “Stop in the event of danger – Eliminate danger – Continue working”. In case of an emergency, it’s also important that you get in touch with Coople as quickly as possible.
