  • "As an organisational member of IOL Plumpton College finds many of its services very beneficial.
    One advantage of organisational membership is that we are able to advertise vacancies here at the College in the OAA department on the IOL jobs page for free.
    The annual fee for organisational membership of IOL is less than what some publications charge for a single advert.
    The response rate to each of the adverts we have placed has been extremely high, to the point where we have taken the decision to advertise a couple of recent posts only on the IOL site.
    The service and communication from the IOL team has been excellent on every occasion and adverts are online within 24 hours.
    If you are considering advertising for positions within your organisation use IOL jobs page".

    (Ivor Lewis, Plumpton College)
