Configure Structured Job Post Location

Job post locations is a required field for all job posts in Greenhouse Recruiting and allows job post creators to tie a role to a unique location. This location will appear on your careers page.

By default, the job post location field is a free text field where job post creators can input any value. Alternatively, organizations can enable structured job post locations on a per job board basis to maintain data integrity and control which locations can be selected for any given job post.

In this article, we will cover how to configure the two structured job post location types:

Note: The following instructions are also applicable for internal job boards (if applicable).

Click the Configure icon configure.png in the upper right-hand corner and select Job Boards on the left-hand panel.

Organization offices

If Organization offices is selected from the Edit Your Job Board page, the job post location field will only populate a dropdown menu of your organization's offices.

Note: The specific location for each office is pulled from the Configure configure.png > Organization > Office > Location field. If the office does not have a configured Location field, Greenhouse Recruiting will default to the Office name.

If a pre-existing job post remains unedited, the free text version of the job post location will still appear on your job posts. However, users will be unable to edit a pre-existing job post without selecting one of the new structured job post location options.

 

Create a Custom List

If Create a Custom List is selected from the Edit Your Job Board page, the job post location field will only populate a dropdown menu of options entered into the provided field.

Note: Every location should be entered on a separate line.
