Using the Employer Portal (Hiring Managers)

A guide for Hiring Managers using the Employer Portal

As a Hiring Manager on Firefish, you could have access to Jobs and Advert modules which will be set up with your vacancies as well as search for and request information on candidates.

Your Dashboard

Your dashboard will give you an overview of your jobs, applications, candidates and interviews. From here you can also view any outstanding actions.


As a Hiring Manager, you can search for candidates within your recruiter’s system using the Candidates drop down menu. You can search the full database or look at saved talent pools that the recruiter has set up. From the candidate record we can see information about the candidate, view their CV and request further information.

In this video you can see how the search function looks, what you can criteria you can filter candidates using and how to request information.


Hiring Managers can view the adverts they currently have open in Firefish and, if you have the permissions, you can open new ones. The Adverts tab will allow you to view your adverts and see how many applications there are. You can also create a new advert to be approved by the recruiter.

Here we can see how to create an advert for authorization, preview an advert and view the candidates who have applied.


Similar to Adverts, within Jobs you can view existing Jobs where you are listed as the Hiring Manager and create new ones. The Jobs view will show you the Job details and allow you to view any candidates in the process as well as provide feedback on CV’s sent to you and interviews you have conducted.

This video walks through creating a Job, reviewing the details of a Job, seeing candidates within different stages of the workflow and providing feedback on their application/interviews.

Tip: Remember if you find a candidate on the system you like that isn’t on your Job, you can request information from the recruiter!

You can also manage your marketing preferences with the recruiter by clicking your name in the top-right corner, and then selecting Subscriptions.
