What employers say about the IOL Jobs pages...

  • "We’ve had so many emails regarding our Freelance vacancies - we’ve now got a waiting list so thank you!"
  • "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)
  • "We had over 750 hits in the two weeks the job was live, with 22 applications and a good shortlist. Well done to IOL for this great method of advertising, which we shall be using in the future."
  • "We had our first applicant just two hours after the ad appeared on your website!"
  • "....... a really excellent aspect of our membership.  Thanks for your prompt and efficient service.  I think this is becoming a key place for people in our industry to look for vacancies."
  • "I would like to thank you for the high standard of applicants that the advert has attracted. Significantly, it has not only attracted applicants with a suitable adventure activity background, but also applicants with genuine skills, experience and interest in working with children with special needs. As staff are my most important asset, your recruitment service has been very valuable to me."
