Advertising a job and interviewing candidates

Where and how to advertise your job


There are a range of options available to you when advertising a job. These include:

  • newspapers and magazines
  • online job and recruitment sites
  • your website and social media channels
  • Jobs and Benefits office and JobCentre network
  • employment agencies

Decide what's appropriate for you

Think about who you want to read the advertisement, how long it should run for, how quickly you want a response, and how much you can afford to pay.

Check the costs - internet sites can be cheaper than advertising in a newspaper - and time the advertisement carefully, eg avoid holiday periods.
