Press and other website advertising

If you advertise through us in the press and the cost is more than £100, your SJD Standard Listing is free providing the advert copy is exactly the same for both the press advert and website advert. If you use different copy in the press to that used on our website, the £95 charge for a SJD Standard Listing applies. For press adverts costing less than £100, the £95 charge for a SJD Standard Listing applies. For any other website adverts booked through us, and not in the press over a value of £100, the £95 charge for a SJD Standard Listing applies. We charge £25 per vacancy to upload jobs onto other websites (in addition to the website charge, less any applicable discount).

Advertising more than one job in a single listing

Costs are per job advertised – one job is a single listing. We strongly recommend not grouping more than one job in one advert unless they are identical. You will get a better response placing individual adverts, but you can state similar jobs are available. We are happy to advise and agree with you the best way to advertise these jobs. However, as an example, if you do group 3 adverts together (with our agreement) the cost will be £95 x 3, totalling £285 for a Standard Listing.

Advert Cancellation

We aim to be as fair as possible with any advert cancellation. Adverts booked on your behalf in the press or other websites cannot usually be cancelled once booked or if past the booking deadline. Adverts for SJD will be charged for if you have received a preview of your advert, or any time after the advert has been made live. If you cancel before you have received a SJD preview, you will not be charged.
