How Set up and Use the JobServe Job Board Integration

Here's how to use the Firefish JobServe integration.

Firefish integrates with JobServe so you can post adverts directly to the job board and accept job board applications back into your Firefish database.

Add JobServe to your job board multi-posting

To add JobServe to your job board multi-posting, a Super User can go to Settings > Integrations > Job Boards then click Add and select Irish Jobs from the drop down.


Starred fields are mandatory and must be completed in order to set up the integration. A red status symbol will indicate tabs that have mandatory fields to complete and the number of mandatory fields for that tab.


You'll need your JobServe Username and Password which you can request from your account manager



Select the JobServe Job Board from the options provided in the Job Board drop down:

Add a Job Board

Firefish Profile Name
Give these job board settings a name - this will help identify different integrations with the same job board.


Use direct apply URL?
Choosing a direct apply URL means candidates will be directed back to your website when applying for an advert posted on JobServe.

You may need to contact your account manager to ensure this is enabled.


Default Fields

Here you will find options to add default values to your adverts when posting to JobServe. These can also be changed when posting individual adverts if required:

JobServe Article 1

Select a default Industry for each advert you post to JobServe.


Select a default Country for each advert you post to JobServe.



In this tab you will be able to set up a limit of the number of credits being used per user or have unlimited postings to the job board:

Reed Article 3


This column will display a date, which shows you the last time the allowance period began, or the last time the total credits were reset.


Total Credits

Is set to unlimited by default and if you want to add the number of available credits from the job board or set your own limit you can.


Allowance Period

The allowance period can be set to Monthly or Weekly. When set to Monthly the credits will reset the allowance at the beginning of a new month. When set to Weekly the credits will reset on the same day as the start of the business week.



When a advert is posted to a job board this will register in the usage to show how many adverts have been posted against the total amount of credits.



In this column you can leave the user with the ability to post Unlimited adverts as they want to the job board or until the job board credits run out. You can also set a quota and when selected the default amount is set to 5 but can be changed to a limit you want to set. In this column you can also remove a users ability to post to this job board by toggling the user to the off position or you can toggle the switch on to allow a user to post to a job board.


Checking Your Settings

JobServe does provide the ability to validate your credentials when setting up your integration. This means that if any of the credentials you have entered on the Configuration tab are incorrect, an error message will be shown and you will be unable to save.


Posting an advert to JobServe

When you're ready to post to JobServe, go to the advert that you would like to post and click on the Reach tab. You'll see all of your available job boards listed; click on the JobServe account you would like to post to:

The JobServe posting modal will now open; any fields that are mandatory will display and asterisk:

JobServe Article 2

Complete the available fields and, once you're satisfied with your selections, click Post. A new action will be added to the Recent Activity tab of the advert for successful posts.
