    You can advertise through the JobCentre if you can negotiate the cruddy Government interface

    LOL

    True - but in the usual way of superannuated civil servants they've made it almost impossible to use the service. You have to go through the Government Gateway which was designed by chimpanzees on acid, and is implemented by orangutans on Prozac.

    But on a more positive (possibly) note - there's an advert appearing on these pages which directs to Post a job on Adzuna for free

    It says it's a free job posting? I have no idea whether it is or isn't (or if it's any good) - just saying.

    You might be better off using the old-fashioned card in the newsagents window - it's cheap (typically £5 will buy you 10 weeks), and it's local.

    Or you could spend a morning "body-snatching" outside the job centre - it's how I got suckered into the canvassing business in the first place.

    I agree but having posted on there half a dozen times in the past and finding no one decent it would be a waste of money.

    I'll try the job centre thanks
