To coincide with the launch of our new fully-responsive platform in February 2015, we reduced our rates for advertisements of two weeks or more to enable employers to advertise longer for less.

All job ads continue to start at £175 + VAT for one week but the two-week rate was reduced to £275 +VAT and the cost of a premium listing cut to £375 +VAT.

Premium listings are unlimited in timescale and automatically appear as featured jobs in the jobs search box on the homepage and at the top of the latest jobs list for the duration of the advert, giving your vacancy added prominence.
