How it works
See top quality candidates first
See a list of selected candidates whose CV on Indeed fits your job criteria as soon as you pay to sponsor a job. Your job post provides us with all the details we need to share great matched candidates in your employer dashboard.
Invite candidates to apply
If you think someone’s a good fit, send them a personalised invitation to apply.
Review your latest matched candidates
We keep your employer dashboard updated with any new matched candidates we find. You can invite them to apply at any time, or ask Indeed to contact them for you.
With Instant Match, 85% of employers get quality candidates the moment they sponsor their job*.
Frequently Asked Questions
We use the information shared in your job description to search millions of CVs on Indeed. Then we surface matched candidates who match your job criteria.
By inviting matched candidates to apply, you’ll attract the attention of great candidates faster than if you only posted a Sponsored Job.
You unlock Instant Match whenever you pay to sponsor a job on Indeed.
A Sponsored Job is a paid listing that has better visibility and doesn’t fall back in search results over time like free listings.
Sponsored Jobs are billed monthly based on our pay-for-performance model. You’re only charged when interested jobseekers click on your Sponsored Job.
You can view matched candidates right after you sponsor a job on the Matched candidates tab of your employer dashboard.
You can invite matched candidates to apply from your employer dashboard as soon as you sponsor a job.
We recommend inviting anyone who could be a good fit.
When you invite matched candidates to apply, we send them a personalised email with your job information and a link to the description. If they’re interested in the job, you’ll be able to review their full application on the Applicants tab of your employer dashboard.
There’s no extra cost to use Instant Match when you sponsor a job.
