Join the club and fill the vacancies

A NEW campaign has launched this week to help fill job vacancies across south east Northumberland for 2011.

Jobs Club has been set up by Northeast Press with the aim of supporting people to get back into work as well as helping companies find the right person for the role.

Employers can advertise their vacancies with a choice of packages to suit all budgets while jobseekers will be able to advertise themselves online and in paper.

The initiative will run in each of the Northeast Press titles, which includes the News Post Leader, and will bring companies looking for staff and those searching for a job together.

Sheila Argument, media sales director for Northeast Press, said: “Our aim is to try to get businesses the right person for the job – someone who ticks all the boxes, without going over budget.

“We can offer huge exposure of the job vacancy throughout the north east, in paper and online.”

To become a member of Jobs Club all an employer has to do is place a recruitment ad.

Mrs Argument added: “We’ve designed a range of packages to suit all budgets and people will receive a full design service for their main advert as well as receive a linage advert in all of the Northeast Press paid for newspapers.”

Members of Jobs Club will also benefit from a business advert promoting their sales or service.

“Employers get a lot for their money,” said Mrs Argument. “But more importantly, they get the right people applying for the job.”

The Jobs Club also means those looking for a job can use the free CV advice guide on the News Post Leader’s website as well as upload a CV for employers to see.

Mrs Argument added: “We’ll also have a Jobs Wanted section in paper and job hunters can showcase their skills in it for only £5 a month.
