Many companies receive insufficient and incompatible candidates despite spending a fortune on job advertisements.
So what has gone wrong in their recruitment process?
Employers need to understand that different job portal specialises in different employment types (full-time, part-time, contract, ad-hoc, etc). Posting on the right job board increases the quantity and quality of their candidates tremendously.
In short, RIGHT job portal = RIGHT candidates.
We will cover the best job boards to post temporary and part-time jobs in Singapore.
Here are the 8 best platforms to advertise your job:

WorkClass.co is a blue-collar job portal that has a large pool of non-executive jobs - from Logistics, Delivery, Production, Customer Service, Retail to Sales Roles. In addition, there are over 20,000 students who are looking for part-time/ ad-hoc jobs.
Companies that are seeking part-timers should try WorkClass.co as they have an assortment of young to experienced part-time workers.
WorkClass’s slogan is “GET A JOB IN 24 HOURS” - Employers can connect with job seekers immediately after being matched.
Creating an account should take less than 2 minutes and you will be able to post your job right away. WorkClass will take 10 minutes to verify your first job posting. All future job posts will be automatically approved.
Candidates go through 3 rounds of screening before reaching the employer.
Step 1: WorkClass.co verifies the identity of every user through a phone interview. They will check their name, age, and previous work experience to ensure that they are genuine job seekers.
Step 2: Employers can specify the job vertical, employment type, and screening questions which the job seeker has to answer. Candidates who fulfil the criteria will be shown to the employer.

Most of the users on Fastjobs are non-executive job seekers - student part-timers and middle-aged blue-collar workers.
They have another portal called “SilverJobs” that is meant for senior citizens. Employers that are seeking senior applicants can try the above-mentioned section.
FastJobs allow users to chat with employers directly.
Simply tap on the chat icon on the app and candidates get to chat with employers. Companies can use this live chat function to know their candidates beforehand.
The Chinese job post section is extremely beneficial for middle-aged/senior-aged Singaporeans who are Chinese-educated.
Some jobs require employees who can speak Chinese. For example, Chinese eatery shops that need workers who can speak mandarin. As such, the Chinese ads section can be a good place to source for mandarin-speaking candidates.
|Address||10 Anson Road, #27-15, Singapore 079903|
Most of their users are non-executive job seekers.
Grabjobs focuses more on the F&B and pink-collar industry.

JobStreet is used by many job seekers in Singapore. They do not have a specific target segment.
JobStreet is mainly used by white-collar workers. Companies can post both white-collar and blue-collar job advertisements on the portal. However, their prices may be a little expensive for some small businesses. Try cheaper job boards like WorkClass, Fastjobs or Grabjobs if you want a cost-effective and efficient employment service.
Unfortunately, Gumtree Singapore does not disclose their address and contact information. Potential customers can only reach their customer service by sending a request assistance ticket.
Gumtree has a large database of users who are seeking part-time and temporary jobs.
Employers can post a free job ad on their board. However, their sponsored ads can yield better results for employers who are hiring urgently.
Gumtree does not have an advanced screening system for candidates - the quality of the candidates can be subpar compared to other job portals. Employers should explore other job boards if they prioritise the quality of their candidates.
Gumtree allows employers to include their phone number in the job advertisements. Job Seekers who love to have a quick chat with the employer can click on the “show phone number” hyperlink. The employer’s full phone number will be revealed and job seekers can contact the employer immediately.
Facebook is an ESSENTIAL social media marketing tool for modern businesses.
With Facebook/Instagram advertisements, businesses can expect to see a drastic improvement in their market outreach. Business owners can also employ workers via Facebook Groups and Job Advertisements.
There are many Facebook groups to post job advertisements. Some of the notable groups are Part/Full-Time Jobs in Singapore , Part-Time Jobs in Singapore, Full/Part Time Jobs Singapore, TEMP/FULL-TIME & PART-TIME JOBS IN SG, SG Hiring Full Time Part Time Jobs, etc. Simply input your company name, industry, salary and requirements, and receive applications through phone or email immediately for FREE.
One drawback of posting in FB groups is the inability to filter candidates. Naturally, companies have to spend time rejecting unsuitable candidates. The employment process can be extremely time-consuming. The best solution is to seek help from job portals, as they are professional platforms that can help to screen and filter candidates. Check out the WorkClass if you want a cost-effective and efficient hiring portal.
Employers can create job posts on their company's FB page.
To create a job post:
To see all job applications that have been submitted, click companies can click the “Manage Jobs” icon at the top of their page or check your email if you chose to receive applications by email.
