Publishing vacancies online: proposal V2


The JobPosting schema is a standard way of marking up in HTML a listing that describes a job opening in a certain organisation.

This proposal is for adoption of the JobPosting schema as the standard for publishing vacancies online both publicly and internally in central government departments, their agencies, non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs) and any other bodies for which they are responsible.

JobPosting has been adopted as a voluntary standard in the US to aid the building of a 'Veterans Job Bank' , and has seen some adoption by vacancy publishers and aggregators . It provides a way of publishing vacancies that includes salary, location, hours and other supporting information as structured data.
