The SEEK integration allows you to push and track candidates that apply to your posting through SEEK into Lever. Readers of this article will be able to:

Enabling the SEEK integration


The following set-up steps can only be completed by a user with Super Admin privileges in Lever. You must also have SEEK Account ID on hand for this set-up process, which you can find under Account details when logged in to your SEEK account.

Step 1: Add your SEEK Account ID to Lever

  • Navigate to Settings > Integrations an API, scroll to the Job boards section, and click the SEEK toggle.
  • Input your SEEK Account ID in the field on the expanded tile and click the Send Request to Enable button.

Although you will see an option to "Push all external published job postings by default" on the expanded tile, note that it is currently not possible to automatically push Lever job postings to SEEK. Job postings must be manually connected using the process described below. Our team is actively working to update the language on this tile to reflect this behavior.

Step 2: Retrieve your Advertiser Id from SEEK

  • Following Step 1, SEEK will contact you to request authorization to enable the integration with Lever.
  • Once you have provided SEEK with your authorization, they will contact you again to provide you with your SEEK Advertiser Id.

Step 3: Contact Lever Support to configure the integration

  • Contact Lever Support with a request to enable your SEEK integration. In your request you will need to provide the following information:


    SEEK Advertiser Id
    This is the Id that SEEK sent you in Step 2
    Default Stage
    The stage in your Lever pipeline to which you would like Opportunities for candidates that apply through SEEK to be added.
    Default User
    The user that will be listed as the owner of Opportunities for candidates that apply through SEEK.
    Default Source
    The source tag that will be applied to Opportunities for candidates that apply through SEEK.
    Default Origin
    Denotes the method by which the Opportunity was obtained, for candidates that apply through SEEK. You must provide one of Lever's pre-set Origins (Applied, Sourced, Referred, University, Internal, or Agency).
    Cut Off Date (optional)
    Lever can retroactively pull past applicants from SEEK into Lever. If you wish to do this, specify how far into the past that you would like Lever to retrieve applicants.
    Lever requires that a user with Super Admin privileges on the account provide authorization to add the appropriate API key and webhook settings. Do not delete these once they have been added, as it will cause the integration to stop working.

How to sync candidate applications from SEEK to Lever

Syncing candidate applications from SEEK to Lever will require you to manually connect each posting. To do this:

  • Create (or navigate to, if connecting an existing posting) a job posting in Lever and the corresponding job posting in SEEK.
  • Copy the Posting Id from the URL bar of the Lever job posting.

Close of of Lever job posting with posting ID highlighted and circled in URL bar.

  • Paste the Posting Id into the Internal reference number field on the posting in SEEK.

  • Repeat this process for every posting from Lever that you wish to connect to SEEK.

Candidates that apply to connected job postings in SEEK will now have a candidate profile and corresponding Opportunity created in Lever. The created Opportunity will appear in the pipeline stage included in your configuration request to Lever Support, along with the default Origin, Source, and Opportunity Owner that you specified.
