Help guides / Getting Started

Setting up your careers site

Go to ‘Settings’ in the main menu, then select ‘Careers site and website integration’. Scroll to ‘Customise your careers site’ section.

You can preview what the current site looks like by pressing ‘Preview’ button. To customise, press the ‘Edit’ button, which will bring you to the site editor.

Upload logo

Click on ‘Upload Logo’ button. Choose your logo and select upload. Your logo will be automatically resized down if it is too large. If you need to replace the logo, delete it and upload a new version. Press ‘Save changes’ button.


Editing Hero section

Next change the text in the ‘Hero’ section. Choose an image from our gallery or upload your own image by pressing on ‘Upload image’ button. Images will be automatically resized if they are too large. Press ‘Save changes’ button.


Recommended size for hero image: 1200 x 675 pixels.

Editing text content

Edit the placeholder text to your desired text. You have the option to style this text the way you want. Press ‘Save changes’ button.


Editing jobs listing

You can change the colour of buttons and links to suit your brand guidelines by choosing the swatch in the ‘Job options’ panel on the right. Press ‘Save changes’ button.

The jobs section is default and cannot be removed.

Search options

You also have the option of showing a search bar and sorting jobs in to categories if you have a large amount of jobs (and have sorted them into categories in the Category Section in HireHive admin), to make searching easier for potential candidates.

You can also add an advanced search option. This allows you to add a dropdown to your careers site to filter jobs by location and category.


Add more sections

You can add as many sections as you like and include text, images and video.


To delete a section just click on the trash can icon in the left hand corner.

When you have completed this page just click Save.

Advanced customisation



If you would like more advanced design options, there is an option to use custom CSS styles. Choose ‘Upload CSS’ in top editor bar and you can paste or drop & drop your CSS into the code editor panel. You can now override styles of the current careers site. A word of warning. This option should only be used by experienced developers. However if you do make a mistake, you can always delete the code and save. This will revert any changes.
