Advertising your Vacancies

£150 + VAT (20%) per mailing.

You can include more than one post in the same advert, we often find that adverts with multiple vacancies attract higher click and open rates.

How your vacancy is promoted:

  1. Direct email to the 4000+ contacts signed up to the CMS jobs listing.
  2. Vacancy details uploaded to the CMS website.
  3. Vacancy details included in the two weekly Newsletters which reach 9000+ contacts.
  4. After the closing date we will provide feedback on the click and open rates for both the direct mailing and the weekly publicity in the CMS Newsletters.

Advertising your Events, Publicity and other activities including News, Tenders, Reports, Consultations

The table below sets out the main Event advertising options. We have developed this over 20 years of advertising our own and clients’ events.

The central pricing idea is that if the advert produces just one booking then it will have paid for itself: in reality the booking rate is likely to be much greater.

Having run over 200+ events using this system we have the experience to help you successfully promote your events and can provide free advice to help you with this.

Real time testing and feedback – event adverts pay for themselves

Try it and see; you might want to see this advertising as a trial and we’d be happy to engage with you on this and provide feedback as necessary. People often say when asking about advertising events that they have no budget for adverts, but since your event advert will generate at least one booking it will pay for itself. The lists were developed initially to promote conferences. You might want to consider a programme of adverts for the event. We find that what you promote varies from the beginning to the days leading up to the event.

VAT:

Will be charged at the standard rate. Charities do not qualify for VAT relief; this is because our direct email service is sent to selected individuals, not the general public. Please see the relevant reference in the Charity Advertising VAT notice 701/58, January 2019.

Circulation Lists:

Below are the circulation lists with the number of recipients. Advertisements will be circulated to the relevant list(s). Vacancies will be circulated to the Job Vacancy list immediately and also included in the CMS Weekly Newsletters (9000+ recipients) which provides 2 x weekly exposure for the duration of the vacancy.

Events, News, tenders, reports, consultations and other advertisements will also be included in the CMS Weekly Newsletters.
