Anyone know of any free websites I can post on to advertise jobs for web developers and designers?
Think it's around £200 on totaljobs - I used up our free trial with them for our PR people last month. They were good though.
If I spend anywhere it'll be on cwjobs
Oh sorry I couldn't help, I was just listening to the radio while you post came up and I heard their advertisment. Good Luck!

try the jobcentre, its free.Some do weekly slots in the local papers too on their recruitment pages.They usually pick out the best 10 job vancies that week.Most jobcentres also print out a daily list of the top 10 vacancies , and email also, to satff who are dealing with customers face to face.All advisers in the jobcentre and the call centres have individual caseloads of customers who they are personally matching to job vacancies on a daily basis.
Offer work trials and you will find they will push your vacancy even more, pus you get the chance to actually try someone out for two weeks without having to pay their wages to see if they can do the job.
You would still have to pay them, that's the law.....
No you don't thats the whole point of a work trial if they are on benefit that is.
If someone is claiming Jobseekers allowance, incapacity benefit or income support they ar eeligible to take part in a work trial.Job on offer must be for a minimum of 16 hours and last more than 5 weeks.Potential employee can work for up to two weeks and stay on benefit.employer must go thrugh jobcentre as they need to check employer has employee liability insurance.
Potential employee can claim back travel costs and meal expenses. They can either claim from employer who can claims it back form jobcentre., or if employer isn't in a position to do this jobcentre can pay direct.
Maybe I should have pointed out I meant people on benefit?
this is in government legislation, and yes it is legal, it is promoted to the point that jobcentres actually have targets to meet in getting a certain amoutn of people onto worktrials to help move them into work.
It would be most unusual to find a web designer/developer on the dole, let alone a good one.
Why would it? They could have been out of worth due to ill health, made redundant and so on.
I said unusual not impossible.
it all depends which part of the country you live in though, same goes for wages.
Also note I mentioned incapacity benefit also.web designers do go sick!
They only need to be claiming incapacity benefit for one day to be able to do a work trial.
as for wages look at this one
only up to £15000 per annum
this subject (job centres) reminds me of a scenario years ago. We were looking for an upholsterer and put an ad in a local job centre. I didn't for the life of me think we'd get anything other than time wasters. In the event, we took on a really good guy who had relocated fresh into the area. Job centres are not necessarily the epicentre of the work shy
You never mentioned anything about the applicant claiming job seekers allowance, believe it or not the job centre website actually gets as much hits from the employed than unemployed, it is one of the most popular websites in the UK........
