Registration/Account management

Why should I upload my organisation's logo and enter a "company description"?

A dedicated web page is created for each organisation that creates a profile on cinfoPoste. A comprehensive profile increases your visibility as an employer of choice for potential candidates. The web page will automatically list all your vacancies.  

I have forgotten my password, what should I do?

There is a "Forgot your password?" button at the bottom of the login page. Click it and enter the email address associated with your account. You will receive an email with instructions on how to reset your password.  

How do I delete my account?

This must be done by cinfo. If you wish to delete your account and data, please contact us at

Subscriptions and pricing

How long will my subscription last?

Subscriptions are valid for two years from the date of purchase. 

Members of Network cinfo receive discounts on their subscriptions. How do I become a member?

cinfo carefully selects its network members. If you are interested in joining, you can find more information here.

My organisation is not based in Switzerland. Do I have to pay Swiss VAT?

Organisations not based in Switzerland do not pay Swiss VAT. The system automatically recognises your location based on your contact details and whether you are required to pay Swiss VAT. 

What happens if I use a different cinfoPoste account than my colleague(s) in the same organisation?

Different email addresses mean different login details and therefore different accounts. Subscriptions cannot be shared between two accounts. Job ads must be purchased separately for each account.

Posting a job advertisement

How long does it take for a vacancy to be published on cinfoPoste?

The vacancy is checked and validated by cinfo within one working day.

How do I edit a job ad once it has been posted?

You can search for your job ad in the "Online Ads" tab. You will see an "Edit" button at the bottom right of the job ad. Once you have made your changes, make sure you click on the "+ Edit" button. The advertisement will be validated again by cinfo and the new version will then be published.

How long does my job ad stay online on cinfoPoste?

When you create your ad, you can choose between a 30-day and a 60-day option. Both require a job slot. Under "more parameters" you can set a specific expiry date. The ad will automatically expire either on the date you specify or after 30/60 days. 

How can I extend the duration of my job ad?

If you initially chose the 30-day option and now want to extend it to 60 days, you can send a request to cinfo at

Once the advertisement has expired, you will need to re-advertise it via the "job ads archive", which will require a new job slot. 

How can I set up a deadline for a job ad?

When you create a new job ad, you can click on "More parameters" under the job description and choose an expiry date that will be visible to candidates. If you do not set a specific date, the ad will automatically expire after 30/60 days. 

How many times can I renew my job ad?

If you chose the 30-day option at the start, you can extend it once for a further 30 days free of charge.

What is a highlighted job ad?

Highlighted job ads are premium job advertisements that are published on the cinfoPoste homepage, placed at the top of the list of job ads and promoted on social media, thus being more visible than other job advertisements. Highlighting a job advertisement costs an extra CHF 100, for which you will receive a separate invoice. One, three or five highlighted job ads are included free of charge in each member organisation's package solution.

How can I republish a job ad?

You can re-publish a job that has not yet expired using the "Post it again" option. The job will remain online until the end of the 30 or 60 day period (if no other expiry date has been set). The posting date visible on the ad will be changed to the date of republishing.

You can republish and adapt a job posting that has not yet expired using the "Edit" option; the job posting must first be re-approved by cinfo and will then be posted online.

If you edit or repost a job before it expires, no job slots will be deducted.

Once the advertisement has expired (30/60 days), you will need to re-advertise it via the "Job ads archive", which will require a new job slot. You will also have the option to "Post it again" if you do not want to change the ad or to "edit" it before reposting.

How do I redirect candidates to my organisation's job board or to a specific website?

When you create a job, you have the option to redirect your job postings. You must enter the full URL in the "Redirect applications to" field. Please note that if you do not use the redirect option, candidates will appear directly in the cinfoPoste database.

How do I add an attachment to my job ad?

When you create a new job ad, you can click on "More parameters" under the job description and upload your file using the "Upload attachment" button. 

What is the difference between "Working region" and "Macro-area"?

"Working regions" refer to Swiss cantons or departments abroad. "Macro-areas" are world regions.

My vacancy does not have a specific location or is based in several locations. Which field should I choose?

You can select "Multiple" in the "Macro-area" category to let candidates know that the job is located in more than one location.

Why are there options to select the gender or the age of candidates in the "Candidate's goal" section?

If you decide to use cinfoPoste for your recruitment process, these fields will help you to target your ideal candidates. All applications will be visible, but those at the top of the candidate list will reflect your preferences. These fields are not intended to be used for discriminatory purposes and are not mandatory.

Recruitment and additional services

How can I access the cinfoPoste talent pool?

cinfo does not share data and information on candidates and therefore does not provide direct access to its talent pool. However, you can contact us at for more information about our active sourcing and recruitment support services.

How do I use video interviews?

You can purchase video interviews from your dashboard by clicking on the "Buy" button. They are listed at the bottom under "Our products".

You must specify your questions and the time you want the candidate to answer them.

How do I use language tests?

When you use this cinfoPoste recruitment tool, you can select a candidate and send her/him a request to take a language test in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.

My organisation does not have a recruitment tool. Can I use cinfoPoste to recruit candidates?

If you do not redirect applications to your own job portal, you can see which candidates have applied for your vacancies in your personal area and manage them by clicking on "View candidates".

Why have I seen my job posting on another job portal?

Job ads are automatically multi-posted to several free job boards. Potential candidates are redirected to your job ad on cinfoPoste.

Due to the high visibility of cinfoPoste, job advertisements can also be picked up by paid job boards. Potential candidates will be redirected to your job ad on cinfoPoste.
