Create an OC Job page

avatar of Julie


Last updated

OC Job pages are great for advertizing job vacancies within your council or city.

Example of an OC Job page

The content type has a number of useful in-built fields, which you can use to advertize the specifics of the job. An OC Job page will take some of the information which you enter and pull it into an overview table, which will display at the top of the page. Moreover, it gives you the ability to add job application links to the right-hand column of the page. 

The page also has a WYSIWYG Editor on the job page to add a detailed description of the position being advertized.

How to create an OC Job page

  1. Right-click in the site tree where you want to create the page. We recommend creating all your OC Job pages under your listing page, to make it easier to find and update them.
  2. Choose Create page.
  3. Select OC Job as the content type.
  4. Fill out the necessary fields of the page.
  5. Add the position description in the WYSIWYG Editor.
  6. Publish the page.
