Advertising a job vacancy

Posted on November 3, 2016 at 4:36 pm

If you are looking to take on a new member of staff then you will need to consider how you are going to advertise the post. Some businesses choose to advertise the post themselves and others opt for using an agency. If you are going to use an agency then you will have to expect there to be a cost involved in advertising and managing the whole job application process for you. Often agencies will ask for a fixed fee or a percentage of the salary that you are offering on the job as their commission.

If you are advertising the job yourself then you need to consider where you wish to post your ad. You will probably be able to put it on a company website but this may not get seen as much as you need it to so often companies choose to also advertise on online jobs boards, in local papers and even on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
