What is the Confidential Job Feature?

The Confidential Job feature is a functionality that allows you to mark certain job postings as 'confidential'. This designation restricts visibility of the job postings in the following ways:

  1. Visibility is limited to users who are part of the hiring team for the job posting.

  2. Visibility is also limited to users who belong to the 'Administrator' access group.

Why is the Confidential Job Feature Useful?

The Confidential Job feature provides flexibility and enhances privacy for sensitive hiring processes. Here are a few reasons why it can be beneficial:

  • In many organizations, recruiters have access to view all jobs. However, when a job posting attracts internal applicants, the recruitment process becomes more sensitive. The ability to mark such job postings as 'confidential' provides a layer of privacy.

  • For customers using an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) without hiring team sync, the Confidential Job feature can be used to restrict job access.

How to Use the Confidential Job Feature

Here's how to use this feature:

  1. Navigate to the Job position settings and find the 'Hiring team' component.

  2. Locate the toggle named 'Only show position for admins and hiring team members'. By default, this toggle will be switched OFF.

  3. To mark a job as confidential, simply turn this toggle switch to ON.

  4. When the toggle is ON, the job will only be visible to users who are part of the hiring team and/or belong to the 'Administrator' access group.

  5. Even if users in the 'Recruiter' or 'Employee' access group have permission to 'Manage all job positions', they will not see a job marked as confidential when the toggle is ON.

This feature is available for all organizations and does not require any additional feature flag or organizational toggle to be used.
