Posting jobs, feed integration via JSON or XML


FashionUnited’s feed service provides a full suite of real-time, highly available Jobboard transactions. This service opens the door to FashionUnited’s infrastructure and enables you to execute a wide variety of jobboard transactions empowering you to control your content at FashionUnited.

To keep things simple, we also accept existing feeds you might have created for other jobboards, like:

  • LinkedIn
  • Indeed
  • Trovit
  • Jobrapido
  • Or others

Therefore, as long as you make sure all the jobs you want posted on the FashionUnited platform are in your JSON or XML feed, we make sure they are shown on the FashionUnited platform.

As of now we provide jobboard services for the following countries:

Posting jobs - options

Full HTML Job Layout

To emphasize branding for job openings on the FashionUnited jobboard, there is an option to use custom HTML styling. A few rules apply to this:

  • If you want to use images, please send them separately to FashionUnited so we can upload them to our servers. Hotlinking of images is allowed, but we prefer local images as we can then guarantee optimum performance for your job postings.
  • All CSS must use classes. We cannot accept generic CSS like p {font-size:12px;} but must have: .brand-name p {font-size:12px;}
  • Hotlinking of styles is not allowed.
  • Scripts are not allowed at all. You can however use the responsive image & responsive embed classes as provided in the Twitter Bootstrap 3 framework.

Example for CSS usage

<link href="/global-assets/brands/brandname/css/brandname.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<div class="brandname">
<h2>We are looking for someone who</h2>
<li>Develops long term plans</li>


  • If a non-standard font is used, a licenced version has to be supplied. If that cannot be submitted, we always use a font as similar to it as possible via Google Fonts.
  • We have limited maximum number of different fonts to 2 in one page.


  • Logo’s are best supplied in SVG format. You can check this link.
  • Header images are minimum size of 970px wide, any height | BIGGER IS ALWAYS BETTER | If header images are carousel, we have limited maximum number of 4 images.


  • We can embed videos from Youtube or Vimeo – all we need is a link and of course for the embedding option to be turned on for the specific video.
  • We can of course link to any social media account possible. For the most common ones, we have logos ready for use, but if you need a link to a slightly lesser known medium, please supply a vector oriented logo for that as well.

Example Embed Media (for video)

<!-- For Vimeo -->
<div class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9 ">
<iframe class="embed-responsive-item" src=""></iframe>
<!-- For Youtube -->
<div class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9" style="margin-top: 10px">
<iframe class="embed-responsive-item" src=""></iframe>
