How does the Integration with Broadbean work?

This integration currently provides the ability to push Job Ad information from your World Manager platform to multiple job boards through Broadbean. Management of the job ad status changes occur in the Broadbean platform at this stage, as part of taking our All-in-one HR Suite to a new level we are reviewing the way we retrieve and store the applicant details in the talent pool. This will include applicant information and job ad status retrieved from Broadbean and enable future automation of applicant details in the talent pool enhancements.

Are there any requirements to set up Integration with Broadbean?

Broadbean integration can only be set up with an active Broadbean account. Each World Manager platform's country requiring the integration, needs to be configured with Broadbean specific settings which includes the Broadbean Secret Key and Admin user details.

Broadbean users are then mapped to World Manager accounts in a process called User Mapping. User Mapping is available for World and National Level accounts.

Does it cost anything to set up integration with Broadbean?

Broadbean will waive their implementation fee for World Manager brands, saving our brands around $2,000 set up costs. To activate Broadbean, you must have an account set up with the Job Boards that you intend to use and standard costs to post Job Ads apply. Additional costs are associated with Broadbean ad packs based on the quantity required and expiry details.
