​My company had not intended to hire foreigners, but subsequently decided to. Would we have to advertise on the Jobs Bank before submitting the EP application?

Yes, regardless of the circumstances for hiring an Employment Pass (EP) holder, your company must advertise on the Jobs Bank for at least 14 calendar days before it submits an EP application. This is to ensure that Singaporeans interested in the job are able to have access to the job information before the company makes the hiring decision.
