    Hiring staff now have an option to upload related documents to job listings - for example, a job description, person specification, or application form.

    Job summary

    New listings now require a brief summary of the job, so that job-seekers can quickly see what the role involves. This replaces a more detailed job description field.

    School overview

    Each job listing will now show information about the school at the top of the ‘School overview’ tab. This provides key facts for job-seekers without requiring any additional input from hiring staff.
