About the Jobs category (and rules for posting)

This category exists to bring employees and employers together. If you’re looking for a member of staff, or a job seeker hoping to get the attention of employers, this is the place to do it.

  • list, or link to, relevant information about the role including:
  • The name of the company (along with a link to their website).
  • A full job specification.
  • Who to contact for more information.
  • How to apply.

If you’re a job seeker, posts looking for work must:

  • be prefixed with [looking for work]
  • be posted from the job seeker’s own account (not posted on behalf of someone else).
  • (anyone seeking work via this category should be involved in the community prior to posting, at the very least having posted an introduction)
  • list, or link to, information about the skills, interests and experience, for example:
  • a CV.
  • a personal site.
  • their LinkedIN profile.
