out of work at the moment and looking for some kind of work I can do from home and found this ad looking for people to join as an advertising partner to a jobs board

Partners retain 80% of the revenue from all sales, full training is provided, you get exclusive rights to a certain area and management support with initial cost of securing this is £500

I'd need to get more info on the ins and outs but wondering what the pitfalls of this arrangement might be, does anyone have any suggestions as to what kind of questions to ask when I email?

Find a job where they pay you, you dont pay them. It's much better.

Real jobs worth having do not require £500

You realise that someone is meeting a sales target by trying to sell you a £500 "opportunity"? 80% of zero is zero.

Sounds a con. That is a huge outlay to risk. To be honest from your description I am not sure what the job actually is.

I fully expect the job is to advertise for more people to join and you keep 80% of the $500 when they sign up. In other words, a pyramid scheme.

it's a job site and you apparently do the advertising for it

thanks for the feedback, think i'll keep my £500 :D

They probably make their money from the people paying £500 to join rather than from a % of any advertising revenue. Zero risk on their part
