Employer Listing Advice

  1. Please take time to craft a well written and attractive job advertisement. A large amount of candidates can be put off applying for a role that is written in a hurry without inspiring or exciting candidates. Be optimistic, positive and detailed.
  2. Allow the personality of the company to come through in how you write. If it is formal adopt a similar tone, if not, then more relaxed. Please avoid generalities, specific facts are good.
  3. A significant number of people who are not looking for a new role will see this if included on our social media campaign. Don’t forget to market your company clearly and well. It’s an excellent advertising opportunity.
  4. Think about the candidates that we represent, experienced, talented and capable people, Returners, Rethinkers, Rebalancers and Retirees. Many have had extremely impressive careers and will be more than capable in every arena but may need upskilling on specific tech requirements. Please write your advertisement with the candidate you are after in mind.
  5. We suggest 3 headings and have listed points for each below.
  6. Please respond to every job application.
