Companies and their available job titles will also be listed in the monthly WES e-newsletter, with a link to the relevant website url (the jobs descriptions themselves will not be listed here though). We can also 'tweet' your job to our Twitter followers, please send us the text if you would like to use this service.
Payments for job advertising can be made here. Please note: If paying online you will need to add VAT at the UK rate of 20% to your payment. Please also indicate that the payment is for job advertising when asked.
Gender Decoder Service
We can offer you a Gender Decoder service, so you can see if your job advert uses masculine-coded language that puts female candidates off from applying for your role. To use this service, click here.
Guidelines for Submitting Jobs
WES now offers a self-serve job advertising board where you are able to upload and edit your own job advertisements. The process for this is as follows:
- To register for the first time, contact Cath Heslop at firstname.lastname@example.org and advise how many job advertisements you would like to purchase (details of costs and duration can be found at the top of this page).
- Payment is required prior to posting the advert. Please either pay online directly as detailed above or request an invoice. In order for WES to raise an invoice, please inform Cath Heslop at email@example.com of the following information:
- Job title you wish to recruit for
- Duration of advert online
- Your contact details
- Email address the invoice should be sent to
- Please also send your Twitter handle (e.g. @WES1919) and tweet if you would like us to tweet out your job to WES' Twitter followers
- Once payment is arranged you will be sent details of your user name and password. This will give you access to the system to allow you to post a company logo and a job description. Please keep your details as you will be able to use these again.
- You will now be able to login to the WES job board and enter details for your job. Please follow the online instructions (content required is shown in the 'Required Information for Job Adverts' below).
- When you have entered your job it will be submitted to WES for approval. Once it is approved you will receive a notification of publication with a link. If there is a problem with the job advert, you will be contacted and asked to make any appropriate changes.
- If you lose or forget your password, please visit the user login page and select 'reset your password'.
- Once set up with access to the system you will be able to submit further jobs to the board by logging on here www.wes.org.uk/user. You will be invoiced for each job posted.
Required Information for Job Adverts
Please note that you will be prompted to add the following information online for the job you are advertising. Many of these fields are mandatory so you will not be able to submit a job for publication without them:

- Job Summary (this will appear in the main job listing with all other jobs and should be no longer than one paragraph)
- Main Job Description - always include the job summary text here, as applicants clicking on link to job from e.newsletter will only view text written in job description box.

Terms and conditions
