Posting vacancy adverts as wp-posts is a convenient way to manage a list of job vacancies on your WordPress website.

Candidate Application Form is a simple Plugin that will allow you to easily attach a form to each post and will enable a candidate to apply for the vacancy.

Flaxlands Consulting originally built the Candidate Application Form Plugin to fully integrate any WordPress website with our applicant tracking database - Interview Coordinator ( However, as part of our development and testing procedures, we also created a test plugin which simply sends a notification email containing the candidate details, along with a CV attachment.

We got some feedback which indicated that the test plugin might be useful for people who have yet to link their website with a dedicated applicant tracking system and therefore released the Email notification version of Candidate Application Form as a free Plugin under the GPF license.

In the free version the application form is limited to a fixed number of fields and will require the candidate to enter the following details:

Email Address

The candidate MUST also attach a CV document (Word or PDF format only)

You can also add an optional field which allows the candidate to enter Additional Information in support of their application.

The FULL version of the Candidate Application Form will allow the wp admin to add and edit the number and type of fields displayed on the application form. You can also allow a candidate to attach up to 3 associated application documents.

Where applications require candidates to enter large amounts of detailed information we have also added a function which allows candidates to first download, then complete and submit an editbale PDF file as part of their application.

The FULL version can also be configured to communicate with any appropriate API. For further details about the paid version of Candidate Application Form please refer to .
