We found Workable really easy to set up; straightforward and transparent. Being able to use it from Day One with no training was a real bonus for us as we desperately needed to start hiring and building our team.

info icon What about iCIMS?

iCIMS Recruit only integrates with a job board aggregator. This means that jobs are posted to iCIMS own career portal, and this data is ‘scraped’ by different job boards. iCIMS does not pre-screen job posts, so it is not guaranteed that your posts will be accepted by job boards once they have scraped your data.

Does Workable offer
tiered pricing?

Yes, because every business deserves the right tools for the job, no matter how frequently (or infrequently) they’re hiring. Workable offers tiered plans, from Pay As You Go, to Starter, Custom and Enterprise options. At the heart of every plan is the same intuitive system, making it easy to scale up as your teams grow.

iCIMS Now is the ‘cut down’ version of iCIMS. With fewer features, and a different interface, this is aimed at smaller businesses. When you start to outgrow it, you’ll need to learn the main iCIMS application.

Does Workable offer social distribution for job postings?

Of course. Workable integrates with LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter, as standard with every plan. The integrations are quick for account members to set up and maintain, and once they’re live you can post jobs directly to each network without leaving Workable. A free Facebook Jobs tab is also included, which will update automatically, every time you create a job in Workable.
