How to Enable Indeed Sponsorship


Indeed Sponsorship is an option available to all accounts who are looking to sponsor their listings on Indeed for additional applicant traffic or who have jobs that are not eligible for Indeed’s Organic Visibility job board.


Enabling Indeed Sponsorship


  1. Navigate My Account>Account Details. 



  1. Under Account Details, scroll down to Customize & Design and select Feature Managemen



  2. Under Feature Management, scroll down to Applicant Listings; there will be an Enable Indeed Sponsored toggle; toggle the switch ON.


  3. Once Enabled, Indeed Sponsorship will show up as a Paid Job option under Post to Job Boards.



Why do I want to enable Indeed Sponsored?

Indeed offers one of the largest applicant pools. If you’re in a highly competitive market, sponsoring an ad provides your job with extra visibility, as it will be posted closer to the top of the job board. 

Some jobs are not suitable for Indeed Free Visibility. These jobs tend to be non-paying intern positions, staffing agencies recruiting on behalf of other companies, and commission-only positions. Other jobs may fall under the category at the discretion of Indeed. For additional information on this, please review 
Indeed's Search Quality Policies & Guidelines.


Job titles are another reason why a job may be flagged on Indeed's free job board and they may require the job to be Sponsored. If changing the language in the title is not an option, you may need to sponsor jobs with the following language in the title:

  • Sign-on bonus
  • Remote
  • Wages
  • Excess language in the job title that goes beyond the description of the job
  • Recruiting for multiple positions in a single post

We do not control where a job will be listed on Indeed. While paying for sponsorship will increase the job's visibility, it does not guarantee the job will be posted at the very top. Please contact Indeed directly for questions about your sponsored jobs.
