Clever job posting
Iframe user guide
How it works:
The iFrame works by COBIS inserting a very clever piece of Tes HTML script into their COBIS Global Jobs webpage. This script displays the jobs that you’ve created and posted via Tes Portal, on the COBIS Global Jobs webpage, as well as Tes.
Make your life even easier, add the iFrame to your own school recruitment pages and create and post your vacancies to your school website, the COBIS Global Jobs page and Tes with the click of a button.

My school is a COBIS member but not a Tes subscription holder. How do I post my jobs on just the COBIS Global Jobs webpage?
On the ‘Post a new job’ form there is a section called ‘Advert information’ with tick box options you can select that asks whether you’d like the advert to appear in different areas (Tes job search, School career site, Tes magazine). Untick the box that says ‘Advert should appear in Tes job search’. After unticking this box, ‘Submit Job’ as normal.
Can COBIS member school vacancies managed by COBIS supporting member recruiters also be posted for free?
COBIS school members can continue to advertise on the COBIS website any vacancies which are being managed by a COBIS supporting member recruiter. There will be no additional charge to publish these ads. COBIS supporting members will need to log in via their client’s school account to post adverts on their behalf.
How do I access Tes Portal?
Login to Tes if you already have an account. If you don’t have an account you can create one for free in the top right-hand corner.
How do I create a job in Tes Portal?
- Log in to Tes.com with your login details.
- Click ‘Post a new job’ on the left-hand side.
- Add the information about the role and your requirements in the advert text section.
How do I post a job to the COBIS website?
You will need a Tes account. If you don’t already have an account you can create one for free by clicking on the button in the top right hand corner.
When registering on Tes you need to select the position that is the closest match to your school role.
Once you’ve set up your Tes account you will need to contact the Tes team at email@example.com to request your nominated Tes Portal administrator is set up.
Your administrator can then invite other school staff to join the portal and create and post jobs.
When a COBIS member school creates and submits a job advert in Tes Portal it will automatically appear on the school’s Tes Career Site and the new COBIS Global Jobs webpage. For more information, refer to our User Guide.
Will I be charged to post my job on Tes jobs as well?
Your ad will automatically appear on the COBIS website and your school’s individual Tes career site for free if you are a COBIS member school. Additional fees may apply if you want to post your job on the Tes job search page, visit tes.com/jobs.
Can my school have its own individual i-Frame? Will it show our live jobs on my school's own website?
Yes, you can add the i-Frame to your school recruitment pages. This will allow you to create your job ads in Tes Portal and automatically post them to the COBIS Global Jobs webpage, your own school recruitment pages and tes.com at the same time.
The i-Frame works by inserting a piece of HTML script into your school website. This HTML script tells your school website to display the jobs from your Tes Career Site on your school website.
Where can I retrieve my code to add it to my school's website?
If you are a subscription holder – the code can be found by going into your ‘School career site’ within your Tes portal account, and then pressing the button that says ‘Show live jobs’ at the top of your career site above your school banner. A pop-up window will appear with your code which you can copy and paste into your school’s website.
If you are a non-subscription holder – email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent a unique code to copy and paste to your school’s website.
Where do I paste the code?
You will need to paste the code into your school’s website. Your IT support and/or web designer at your school should know where to paste this code.
Is there an optimal size for the i-Frame once it has been put into my school's website?
Yes, it works best with a 1000-pixel width.
What will my i-Frame look like on my school's website?
If you are a subscription holder, you will be able to see a live preview by clicking on the button that says ‘Show live jobs’ at the top of your ‘School career site’. You will see a pop-up window with a button that says ‘see live preview’.
What do I do if I can't access Tes Portal or my ad is not appearing on COBIS?
For general enquiries and technical difficulties contact:
I'm not a COBIS member school can I use Tes Portal?
