Why you should advertise on www.photographers.co.uk jobs pages
It's important that you can rely wholeheartedly on the person that's working with you. The ability to take a good shot is a given, as is their technical knowledge. But it's not just about the pictures they take. Everything they do and how they interact with customers reflects on the reputation of your business. So whether you're looking for a new portrait recruit, a wedding second shooter, a representative for your school company or a possible new partner, finding the right person for your team is the most important decision you'll make. Having a strong team behind you will also enable you to take a step back and develop your business in the way you want.
Once you've take the decision to recruit, it's important that the process is easy. You want lots of applicants - but not too many - and more importantly, the right ones. Wading through hundreds of wannabe photographers is no-one's idea of fun. Getting the right candidates with the right qualities will save you time, effort and ultimately money.
What are your options? Using a recruitment consultant can be costly and it's not as if there's a shortage of candidates. Advertising on a cheaper general site can be time-consuming and doesn't reflect well on your company's profile. And advertising on an association site won't always guarantee you the job-hungry audience.
For 8 years now, www.photographers.co.uk job pages have been matching quality candidates to great industry jobs. Ours is the first site to appear when you google 'photography jobs' and we have over 75,000 visitors to our pages each month. Of the hundreds of adverts that were placed in the last 12 months, an average of 64 good quality applicants responded. But the statistics only tell one side of the story. We have a sample of testimonials here and many more verbal recommendations for happy advertisers that have been able to find the perfect member for their team through our job pages.
The costs for placing your advert for four weeks are:
We understand the different types of roles there are in the photography industry so have refined to two categories of jobs: part-time and full-time. It's really important that you classify your vacancy correctly so that you don't pay too much for your advert.
For you, a part-time or casual job is when the recruit is not a full-time salaried employee but works on a retained or freelance basis, from occasionally to frequent. A full-time position is one where it's the main source of income for the photographer and they're paid monthly.
If you have any doubts over which category to choose, please ask below or phone 07739 035923.
Part-time / Casual £67.99
Often the thing that puts you off advertising is the prospect of receiving hundreds of applicants; and it can be a full-time job dealing with the resulting calls and emails. We can help by providing our Selection service, where you simply have to provide us with:
- Your essential criteria;
- Your 'good to have' criteria;
- How many candidates you would like to see on the shortlist
With this, we can handle all of the response and present you with the shortlist one week after the advert closing date. The cost for this additional service is only £19.99.
We have based our new advertising rates on single adverts placed. If you have a regular need for high quality candidates and want to place adverts monthly then we would be happy to discuss a fixed monthly fee. This fee would be paid by monthly direct debit and subject to change or termination within 30 days notice. Please contact Nick on 07739 035 923 or fill in the form below with your anticipated volume.
