Where to advertise part time jobs?

Apart from mumsnet obviously smile

I am trying to broaden out where my work advertises jobs and we have some part time and casual work available. I'm new to this advertising so I wondered if there's any good places beyond the obvious job boards I could try. Any ideas welcome!

local newspapers, facebook page if your work has one, website word of mouth have some kind of open day at your work

A community Facebook page - e’g ‘Westminster residents’ I advertised for a part time role on there and got loads of people sharing it and commenting as it worked well for parents. Interviewed some fantastic applicants!

Great idea about the local facebook groups - I hadn't thought of that. Open day is also a good idea.

I have a particular job in mind which is probably good for retired people who want something very part time. Have you ever advertised anything to reach that kind of group? I'm not sure where to start with that one as they might not be actively looking.

Please be really careful how you word your advert! There is no problem you targeting any websites or magazines you like, but it is classed as discriminatory to pre-judge the age or life phase you believe fits your job vacancy. It could equally suit a 25 yo SAH Dad who only needs a few hours’ work - see what I mean?

Think of it like this, you are narrowing down the field by projecting your expectations to the role and it could deter the perfect candidate from applying. Hopefully whoever you get works out well!

Thanks Daisy. I do know it could be good for lots of different kinds of people, and I'm usually the one who goes through the adverts picking discriminatory comments like that out! However, we don't do any kind of advertising that might specifically reach that kind of group for any of our jobs, so I do need to work out how I might best reach retired people as well as others who might not be actively looking. Right now I think we're narrowing the field by not doing any kind of focussed activity, just relying on main jobs boards etc.

Indeed.com is where I used to advertise all my job roles for my old company. We would be inundated with responses, but you had to filter through those applying for everything to fulfil the job centre requirements.

I’m looking for work at mo - where are you?! I’m not retired though sadly grin
