Advertising options and recruitment costs

We will place your advert on a specialist job board most suitable for your requirements for 1 week at a fixed cost of just £299 + vat. You can run as many adverts as you like and on as many job boards as you like the cost remains the same just £299 + vat for each job per job board for 1 week.

For example if you want to run your advert for 2 weeks on 2 job boards it's just £1,196 + vat and remains the same whether it is just 1 or 100 candidates you are seeking.
For example using the example above but looking for say 5 developers you could pay as little as £239.20 + vat for each.

FREE automated Pre selection

We now offer FREE Pre selection.
What does this mean? we are able to add to your adverts a screening questionnaire which will make sure that only candidates with the desired skills, experience and legally able to work for you can apply for your position. Although this can never be 100% effective it will screen the obvious miss-matches from your inbox.
We can take this even further , if you ask use to our own email addresses on the adverts we will manually pre-select all cv's for your position before forwarding on guaranteeing an even better match to your job description. Our charges for this additional service start from just an additional £50 +vat.
Don't forget we guarantee that all candidates responding to your advert remain in your ownership, we will not use them for our own vacancies or forward them onto to any third party.

Advertising Guarantee

What if your advertisement does not find you a good candidate in the first week? No problem - We offer you another week Free either with the same copy or a another to see if a differently worded advert works better for you

Alternative Options

If you find that you are unable to cope with the response or you just need help then you always have the option of engaging us to handle your recruitment under our Standard Terms of Business (Fee set at 15%) and what's more when we find you a good candidate we will refund your original advertising costs in Full against our invoice.

What are the benefits
  • reduce recruitment costs
  • Low cost recruitment option especially if you are recruiting for more than 1 employee
  • Any advertising is good for a business it gets your name in front of thousands of IT professionals - some may even become customers.
  • Filtering and pre-selection of your advertisement response saves you time and money - make sure you only see the best possible CV's for your position.
  • A professional to help your write a good and highly successful job advertisement
  • Want to remain anonymous let us handle the response using our contact details and save you from direct contact or pushy sales calls.

What could your advert look like

See the example of a typical advert opposite that we can run on your behalf either with or without your own contact details. Most of the sites we use allow us to add pre selection questions before the email and cv is forwarded onto your email account.
We can also send a candidate an email with your own questionnaire which they must complete before we send on their details. Either way you can be guaranteed that any CV you see the prospective candidate will have answered and satisfied your requirements in the pre-selection process.

Some of these boards also have additional sites that will also show your jobs. Many can be regionalised so that your jobs only appear locally, some will go down to a specific town or indeed to a distance from a specific location eg. 5 to 20 miles etc.
