The following terms are applicable only where you have either:
purchased and posted a casual; or
purchased a Flexible Ad Budget or a Branded Ad Budget (each an Ad Budget) in your SEEK Advertising Agreement (Agreement):
All job ads posted on the Site remain posted for 30 days (unless removed earlier).
You are obliged to pay the full price for each job ad, even if you request the withdrawal of your ad at any time (whether before or after it appears on the Site).
SEEK’s job ads are variably priced and prices are subject to change from time to time. For more information on the pricing of each ad type, see the clauses below.
It is your responsibility to look up the price of a job ad before posting on the Site. The price of any particular job ad at a point in time may be looked up using the following link and your SEEK Advertiser Centre login details – https://talent.seek.com.au/account/ad-price-lookup.
For Hirers purchasing ads via SEEK’s Advertiser Centre, the price will be displayed to you at the point of posting as part of your job ad posting process.
For hirers purchasing ads via other means, the cost of a job ad may not be displayed at the point of posting if you are not using SEEK’s Advertiser Centre to post your ad and you should use the above link prior to purchasing if you wish to look up prices.
When posting a single ad on the Site not pursuant to an Agreement, you agree to the price of that job ad as at the time of posting (including any applicable discount) being charged to you. For posting ads pursuant to an Ad Budget purchased in your Agreement, see below.
A Classic Ad is SEEK’s standard job ad. A Classic Ad entitles you to:
when a Classic Ad is included within a candidates’ search results, the relevant role title for the ad and a brief description of the position you are advertising being displayed to candidates; and
when selected by a candidate from SEEK’s search results, the full contents of the job ad being displayed to the candidate.
From time to time SEEK may repost your Classic Ad on the website/s of its related bodies corporate to increase the exposure of your ad.
Classic Ad Pricing
Classic Ads are variably priced based on a number of factors, including the supply of and/or the demand for candidates for the role being advertised as well as the average salary and location of that role. Changes to these and other factors may cause the price of an ad to go up or down from time to time.
Once posted, if you edit the role title, category or location applicable to a Classic Ad, the price of that ad may change. If the change results in a job ad price greater than what you were originally charged for your Classic Ad, the difference will either be:
charged to you separately when the changes are made – if the original ad was posted as a single ad not pursuant to an Agreement; or
deducted from the amount of your Ad Budget committed to in your Agreement – if the original ad was posted pursuant to an Ad Budget (if the edited ad is an ‘Additional Ad’ posted pursuant to an Ad Budget (as that term is defined in your Agreement), you will be charged for the difference in the next invoice you receive under your Agreement).
Other than changes to role title, category or location, your Classic Ad can be edited free of charge.
A StandOut Ad listing entitles you to the features of a Classic Ad listing plus the following when a StandOut Ad is included within a candidates’ search results:
up to three Text points - “selling points”;
your logo at the right-hand side of the ad (provided you have submitted an electronic version of your logo for those purposes); and
a border around the ad summary when it appears in the search result (defined as a “StandOut Ad”).
You must provide SEEK with the necessary materials and information (outlined above) required to publish the StandOut Ad on the commencement date of the ad. Failure to do so will result in the ad being published as a Classic Ad but you will be charged the StandOut Ad price.
SEEK reserves the right to withhold publication of any logo in the search results where SEEK reasonably believes that the creative design is not a logo or is otherwise not appropriate for posting on the Site.
All logos must comply with SEEK’s advertising specifications, which will be provided on request.
StandOut Ad Pricing
StandOut Ad prices are comprised of the price of a Classic Ad at the time of posting and a fixed StandOut upgrade fee. If you are posting a StandOut Ad pursuant to an Agreement, the upgrade fee will be specified in your Agreement. For more information on the pricing of Classic Ads, see above.
The editing rules in clause 9 above apply to edits to StandOut Ads.
A Premium Ad listing entitles you to the features of a Standout Advertisement plus the following increased exposure of your ad.
During the period that a Premium Ad is live on the Site SEEK takes various measures to increase the exposure of your Premium Ad with the aim of obtaining on average applications which would be received for your ad over a 30 day period if it was a StandOut Ad. Such measures may include but are not limited to ads appearing more frequently on the job search results page on the Site and App, in email communications to relevant candidates and on partner sites such as Jora. You acknowledge that the promotion measures employed by SEEK, and the frequency of that promotion are at SEEK’s sole discretion.
Whilst Premium Ads receive greater exposure on the Site than other SEEK job ads, SEEK provides no guarantee and makes no representation that a Premium Ad will result in an increase in the number of applications received in response to that Premium Ad, and you acknowledge that application levels are influenced by many factors beyond the control of SEEK.
Premium Ad Pricing
Premium ads are variably priced based on a number of factors, including the supply of and/or the demand for candidates for the role being advertised as well as the average salary and location of that role. Changes to these and other factors may cause the price of an ad to go up or down from time to time.
Once posted, a Premium Ad can be edited free of charge, however if you edit the category and/or location of your ad, you acknowledge that the market conditions (on which SEEK will have based the promotion strategy applicable to the ad) will likely change and that this may affect the number of applications your ad will receive.
By agreeing to purchase an Ad Budget you are committing to pay SEEK the amount of your Ad Budget set out in your Agreement over the Contract Period (as those terms are defined in your Agreement), regardless of whether or not you have utilised the full value of your Ad Budget.
Your Ad Budget allows you to post any of the ad types specified in your Agreement at any time during the Contract Period until you have exhausted the dollar amount for the Ad Budget within your Agreement without the need to commit any additional spend. For more information on each job ad type, see below.
If you have used the entire amount of your Ad Budget prior to the end of the Contract Period, you may post Additional Ads (as that term is defined in your agreement) at the rates set out in your Agreement until the end of your Contract Period. If you have the value of less than 1 full job ad remaining in your Ad Budget (i.e. you have a fraction of an ad remaining), you will be able to use this remaining dollar amount towards any Additional Ad purchase prior to the end of your Contract Period and you will be invoiced for any shortfall.
Any unused Ad Budget amount (including any amount which may constitute a fraction of an ad) that is not used prior to the end of the Contract Period will expire and cannot be rolled over into a subsequent agreement.
The price of posting a job ad at any point in time (including any applicable discount) is available to you:
For hirers posting via SEEK’s Advertiser Centre, at the point of posting as part of your job ad posting process; or
For hirers posting via other means, using the following link and your SEEK Advertiser Centre login details – https://talent.seek.com.au/account/ad-price-lookup. (Note: the cost of a job ad may not be displayed at the point of posting if you are not using SEEK’s Advertiser Centre to post your ad).
By posting an ad on the SEEK website (Site), you agree to the price of that job ad, as at the time of posting (including any applicable discount), being deducted from the amount of your Ad Budget committed to in your Agreement.
Your Ad Budget is valid for the term specified as the Contract Period in your Agreement unless concluded earlier as set out in your agreement.
The balance of your Ad Budget remaining at any point in time can be calculated by deducting the value of any job ads posted by you to that point in time as part of your Agreement from the value of your Ad Budget and will be expressed as a dollar amount and be shown in your SEEK Advertiser Centre account and available from SEEK Customer Support.
You’ll be billed for your Ad Budget as set out in your Agreement.
Upon expiry of your Ad Budget and in the absence of a subsequent Ad Budget being purchased, any further ads posted on the Site will be billed at SEEK’s then per unit price for casual purchasers (unless agreed otherwise).
SEEK Contracts and Premium Packs
If your Agreement includes a Premium Ad Budget in addition to your Ad Budget then:
you acknowledge that the Premium Ad Budget amount set out in your Agreement may only be applied towards the purchase of Premium Ads; and
the cost of any Premium Ads posted during the Contract Period will first be deducted from your Premium Ad Budget and once until this amount has been exhausted, the cost of any subsequent Premium Ads posted during the Contract Period will, where your Ad Budget has not yet been exhausted, be deducted from the amount of your remaining Ad Budget, or otherwise, posted as Additional Ads as described in clause 24.
