How do I post my job with the Local Jobs Hub?

While you can’t post to the Local Jobs Hub directly, when you post on any of the top 30+ job posting websites for the region, the Local Jobs Hub automatically picks up your job posting and makes it go further; by reaching thousands of users from across Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland, Haliburton & Muskoka.

Sites Aggregated by the Local Jobs Hub (Updated October 2020)

Do I have to pay for job postings on the Local Jobs Hub?

The Local Jobs Hub is a free tool provided by the Workforce Development Board to help job seekers and employers alike. Some of our compatible sites charge fees to post with them, but many provide their services for free. Check with the sites above to make the right decision for your hire.

I am hiring for a job outside of the Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland, Haliburton & Muskoka Region, why isn’t my job posting on the Local Jobs Hub?

If you’re an employer hiring for a job outside of the region, it won’t appear on the Local Jobs Hub, but you can go to employmentontario.ca to find more resources in your area.

I am hiring for a job in the Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland, Haliburton & Muskoka Region, why isn’t my job showing up on the Local Jobs Hub?

There are a few reasons your job may not be registered with our site:

1. It is not posted with one of the sites aggregated by the Local Jobs Hub.

See the list of compatible sites at the top of the FAQ section.

2. You may have forgotten to input your address.

Search for your job using the search function on our Job Board. If your job shows up here, but not on the Map, return to your original posting and input the location of your company or job. Check back in 24 hours to locate your job on the map

3. Your address may be incompatible.

If you don’t see your job on the Job Board or the Map, return to your original posting and check the address. If your posting address is associated with a head office or other location outside of the region, try changing your address on the original posting to the location of the job itself. Check back in 24 hours to locate your job on our board or map.

4. Your posting was created before the launch of the Local Jobs Hub.

The Local Jobs Hub started aggregating jobs in December 2019 for Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland, and Haliburton and in July 2020 for Muskoka. If your posting is older than that date, you will have to re-post your job at its original source. Check back in 24 hours to locate your job on our job board or map. Note: “Refreshing” this type of posting will not make it register in our system.

Trying the above four fixes resolves 90% of cases. If you’ve attempted these fixes and still don’t see your job, please contact us.
