ACCOUNT ACCESS

How do I create a Job Advertisers Account?

If you are a new member of a school (principal etc) or need access to an existing school account, login to your EducationPosts.ie account and follow the process here. This will notify existing administrators of your access request. The administrators can then approve your access request if appropriate. If the request is not actioned by the administrators, it is sent to the Support Team for review.

 

What is a Job Advertisers Dashboard?

Once logged into your Job Advertiser account, you will see a personalised Job Advertisers Dashboard. Within this view, you can easily see all Draft, Pending, Active and Previous adverts posted by this account. You can easily amend your profile or billing details.
