Advertise open opportunities via our Newsletter

Our Young Community newsletter goes out to over 1000 (18-25 years old) young people on the 1st of every month. If you want to advertise a paid opportunity, we will ask you to send us a job description or brief. It’s really important that these are written in an accessible way, with the salary, deadline and location clearly stated. Read our blog with detailed guidance on how to write a good job description.

We will only advertise roles that are at least your area’s Living Wage or the average freelance rate for your industry. Consult the Living Wage website for their current rates. We won’t advertise roles where the salary is undisclosed.

Our newsletter is sent out on the 1st of every month. Please make sure you have sent us your opportunity by the 27th of each month otherwise we can’t guarantee it will be included.
