Finding the Right Person for the Job
What is Kontaks?
Advertising your vacancy
Kontaks Basic leverages the power of the internet and social media to ensure your vacancy reaches the appropriate audiences in the shortest possible time and for a reasonable price making it one of the most cost-effective mediums for advertising.
With Kontaks Basic, your vacancy will be advertised via three (3) distinct mediums to ensure maximum reach. These will include:
Kontaks Basic Plus allows you to advertise your vacancy without revealing the identity of your company. Through this package, you advertise your vacancy anonymously as a client of The JobBank and applicants are asked to apply to The JobBank directly. We will then forward all applications received to the email address you provide.
COST – (per post)
Kontaks Supreme enhances the Kontaks Basic or Basic Plus package by adding a screening component to ensure you only get qualified applications to review.
With Kontaks Supreme, we will review all the applications received screening for qualifications, skills and work experience based on the job description for the position. We will select the best fifteen (15) applicants and submit to you. Applications will be reviewed and shortlist completed within five (5) working days of the stated deadline in the advertisement for the vacancy.
COST – (per post)

The JobBank Policy
The JobBank requires that all criteria for selection be shared with us in order to ensure that appropriate candidates are short-listed. We are best able to provide the candidates you need if we have all the information needed for a successful search.
Our experience has been that keeping resumes in a data bank is non-productive. After one month, all the better candidates would usually have found jobs. For this reason we always advertise available positions. The usual time frame following the placement of the Press Advertisement is two (2) weeks for candidates to respond and a further two (2) weeks for screening, assessment and interview.
A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required upon agreement to utilize our services. If The JobBank short-lists candidates according to the criteria and traits specified by a customer and the decision is made to not select any of them for the position, the balance is still due and payable. The cost of advertising the post in the newspaper is separate and would also be due and payable.
We offer special discounts where we have been asked to fill several posts at once and where clients are selecting more than one candidate for a specific position, for example, where five (5) Sales Representatives are needed.
We look forward to efficiently serving your needs.
Kontaks Optimal - Some Frequently asked Questions and their Answers
What if the search does not yield suitable candidates?
We have found that once the hiring company has shared ALL the details of what candidates need to be able to do and the ‘who’ components of the ideal candidate for a post, they have been able to find strong candidates from among those short-listed for 2nd interview to fill the post. We urge all clients to:
Where the hiring company requires a very unique mix of skills and abilities, we ask that the most critical competencies be identified as those will determine the selection of candidates for 1st interview.
Here are the contingencies that we have in place to ensure the success of the process.
Challenge # 1
Upon reviewing the applications, we are able to indicate to the hiring company if the field of candidates is weak. Where this is so, we recommend that the print advertisement be run again. Where professional bodies in the field of endeavour exist, we make contact with this organization to contact potential candidates.
The JobBank will bring this to the hiring company’s attention. Where the company is unwilling/unable to increase the salary being offered, The JobBank will recommend that candidates whose expectations are more in line with the offer be short-listed as these persons are more likely to accept the offer and remain with the hiring company.
In this situation, we will need to know the exact areas of deficiency. Sometimes, a critical issue was not communicated and we are able to revise the short-list and send additional candidates from the existing pool of candidates/applicants based on the new information.
Where a suitable candidate cannot be found from among the existing pool of candidates/applicants, The JobBank will restart the Kontaks Optimal service at an additional cost of 50% of the standard Kontaks Optimal cost (US$2,599.00 or 10% of the annual salary, whichever is higher).
The concluding Kontaks Optimal service will be charged at a flat rate of US$2,599.00 + G.C.T. and will become due and payable once the process restarts.
We hope that this answers most of your concerns, but if there are additional queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to an opportunity to provide you with this service.
