Do you want to recruit local people in West Berkshire and  the surrounding areas? If so, Penny Post offers a simple, affordable and effective way of reaching over 3,000 local residents each week through the Penny Post community newsletter as well as many more directly through the website and as a result of Penny Post’s carefully targetted social-media activity.

Cost

A single job advert costs £40. You can also buy a pack of five for £100 (there’s  no time limit for using them up).

If you are a charitable or voluntary organisation we can offer discounted rates – enquire for details.

How it works

Email us your ad copy to advertising@pennypost.org.uk by 10am Thursday (and sooner if possible but not more than six days in advance) for promotion in that week’s newsletter. You don’t need to send any artwork although you can include your company logo if you wish: this should be as a .JPG and at least 400px wide.

Please ensure that your copy is pasteable (ie not a PDF), correct and complete. There is no word-count limit although we advise that the advert be at least 150 words if possible as this leads to a better SEO rating.

Your job will be posted on our website for up to one month (unless there is a closing date specified in the advert or if you ask us to take it down sooner) and linked to from the weekly newsletter. The advert will at our discretion also be promoted on social media.

Advertiser Testimonials

Penny Post is a great hub for community spirit and a great place to advertise news, jobs and opportunities. Excellent customer service and they live up to their promises. It was great working with them to help us recruit staff and we look forward to doing so again in the future.”
Triteq, Hungerford

Penny Post has proved to be a very reliable source of advertising that we turn to time and time again when recruiting. We have successfully employed several members of staff through advertising on your website and are keen to continue with this good working relationship.”
Redcrest Events, Chieveley

“Thanks to Penny Post for helping us fill our vacancy at Inkspots. We will certainly use your service again. It is very reasonable and effective.”
Helen Hanna, Inkspots Pre-School

“Thank you for doing our recruitment advertisement. It has really helped and we have now filled all of our vacancies.”
Leanne Wilson, Tesco Hungerford

“If you are looking for a local person, then an advert in Penny Post can work miracles. We have always tried to recruit locally as we believe that reducing the traveling time to work creates a better work life balance and results in happier staff. We also encourage recommendations from existing staff. Who better to say what it is really like working for our company? We placed an advert for a PR Graduate recently and we had a great candidate come forward who also knew two of our existing staff and had sounded them out.  Great result!  Within seven days, we have put the ad on Penny Post, interviewed, offered the position and agreed a start date. Thank you Penny Post!
Karen Sperry, Fuel Cell Systems, Greenham Business Park

“We’ve recently appointed a well qualified, experienced and local book-keeper for our business in Hungerford via Penny Post. We were really impressed by the quality of responses as well as the quantity. This is the third appointment we’ve made for admin staff via a single advert in Penny Post. At a fraction of the price of many print publications it’s exceptional value for money and a great service for a small business like ours. I can highly recommend Penny Post for recruiting staff. A job well done indeed.”
Dana Mellor, Philip Brown Violins Ltd, Newbury

“Our office manager ad was very successful with plenty of immediate responses through Penny Post. So many local people seem to know about you and it’s been useful to keep these contacts on file.”
Douglas Instruments, East Garston

“Placing our ad with Penny Post couldn’t have been easier. Brian is impeccably professional, answered my enquiry promptly, clearly explained the process, and suggested some very helpful edits to our wording. We had far more replies than we were expecting and filled our vacancy easily. We’ve had another vacancy come up and didn’t hesitate to use Penny Post to advertise it. The readership seems to be wide and over a broad enough area to attract a lot of interest and yet is local so we have replies from people who live nearby. We are opening a small business later in the year and will definitely use Penny Post to promote it.”
L.B., Lambourn
