Introduction & Navigation 

Jobs are a central part of the recruitment workflow, and recording and maintaining accurate data is of great benefit and will help you keep track of your pipeline.

You have the ability to have multiple job records open at any one time, and can return to the Job Record hub using the Hub icon in the top left.

At the top of each job record is the job name banner which will display the job title, the company the job is at, the status of the job and the work type pill (e.g. Permanent, Contract, Temporary). If the job has been marked as a Hot Job the flame icon will be displayed too.

In the top right of each job record you can see progress towards filling the number of roles associated with the job; a link to the company record; functions to mark the job as a favourite; refresh the record; archive the record or delete (permission based); the job record ID number; and who created the record and when.


In the overview area, you are able to see a picture of the companies logo, if a picture was added to the company record. If no picture is added the circle will display the companies initials.

Below the picture, the address(es) assigned to the job will be displayed, with the ability to view them via google maps.

Overview > Details 

Some of the information in the details area, such as Industry, Business type and sector, are linked to the company record. Others, including Job Title, Job Function, Status and start/end dates can be amended by clicking on the field header.

You can mark a job as a Hot Job from here. This is effectively a flag against the job, giving the flame icon at the end of the name banner, and will appear as a filter in searches and the Live Jobs area.

The base pay and charge can be edited here, or in the Rates tab to the right (please see the related article for more information).

The estimated value will calculate the value of the placement based on the pay, charge and shifts added. The estimated value will be displayed in the users default currency and where applicable converted using the exchange rate history configured in the itris Management Utility. If there is more than one role to fill you will get a calculation for one role and all of them. 

Fill chance is also another useful search filter, for example, you may wish to work the jobs you have a higher chance of filling as this will potentially yield better returns on your time.

For instances where a client may require multiple applicants for the same job, you can create the one job and set the number of roles to fill against that job. This saves you from having to create the same job multiple times.

If your client gives you a deadline to submit applicants you can also set this on the job, and you will be warned during the submission process if this is exceeded. See the related articles on Warnings and Submissions.

itris will assign an id number as a reference to the job record, however where you may have the need to record an additional references, for example, if the client has their own reference number for the job, you can also record that here.

Additionally, you can assign a job reason and career level to the role which may be useful for business development and reporting.

Overview > Additional 

Under the additional tab, you can link the invoice contact and address at the company. 

When clicking on a Purchase Order Number (PO), you can tick to make it mandatory to have a PO number at placement stage and/or add the PO number in here.

Under Marketing Source you can link any marketing event to that company to this job (no matter who the contact is). Please see the CV Marketing Hub article for more information.

Finally, you can use the Recruitment Process area to detail all the hoops you and/or the applicants might have to jump through to fill the role.

Overview > Information area 

In the bottom left of the overview tab is the information area, where you can add further information to the record. Each tab in the information area has a separate article covering its functionality, please see the list of related articles.

Overview >Job Description, Shifts & Rates 

The Job Description Overview allows users to save a job description from free typing (or pasting) in or populating from attaching a job spec document. 

Shifts are available on jobs of all work types (Permanent, Contract and Temporary) and detail the working pattern for the job.

Rates are available on timesheet orientated (interval charge) roles where there is the potential to have more than one rate.

Each of these have their own articles covering their functionality, please see the related articles list.

Overview > Submissions area 

The submissions area tracks and manages certain stages of applicant submissions against the job. This area is essentially a mechanism that allows you to submit applicants, and move them through the submission levels based on their successes.

Additionally, if applicant searches have been linked to that job they will be displayed here.

If a marketing event has been linked to this job you will also see a list of applicants that were included in the marketing event.

Please see the related articles for more information on each of the above.


Comments are a useful tool for tracking communications against a job, and recording comments allows for the smooth flow of information and transparency. Please see the related article for further information.


Attachments are an integral part of any database software, particularly in recruitment. The Attachments area is where any job description attachments will be stored. Please see the related article for further information.


The Job Activity board is a quick and easy way to manage applicants through the submission process. It will show you all the applicants that are live in the submission process, at their highest achieved submission stage and with the ability to drag and drop applicants into higher levels.
