Filling your job vacancies
If you offer work experience and volunteering opportunities to people through neLINK you will have the edge over your competition. That's because you will have direct access to more individuals with the relevant skills and expertise, so you can quickly and freely fill your vacancies.

In a fast-changing economic landscape, it's far more cost effective to employ somebody you already know to fill a vacancy when it arises - neLINK helps you make more connections with people who will have the potential to work for you and who can get the job done and help you remove the risk of employing someone who might prove to be unsuitable.

Promote your vacancy quickly and easily
We offer the most cost effective route for businesses of all types and employers of all sizes to advertise their vacancies in all parts of the North East. Because we are a social enterprise business - we are unique to the North East and the only social enterprise of our kind in the UK - we have designed everything that we do to be either low cost or available for free.

We work well with, and support other aspects, of your campaigns
If you have a vacancy you would like to fill, especially if you have tried other alternatives that have failed to deliver, then we can help you advertise your vacancies quickly, easily and cost effectively. And if you are advertising elsewhere or using traditional media, then neLINK provides a fantastic additional resource and the perfect platform to reinforce and strengthen that message, adding extra value.

I'd like to advertise a vacancy
That's great, it's what we are here for so we want this to be as easy as possible. You should click on the 'EMPLOYERS - Add your vacancy' button and follow the prompts to fill in the details about your vacancy before posting it back to us and we'll do the rest.

Can I add a job description and application form?
Yes, it's all part of the service. The whole idea is that you can provide job seekers with a description of who you are and full details about your vacancy, so we give you the space to do this. By including your job description and application form you make sure job seekers have everything they need to apply for your vacancy.

Can I add my company logo?
Yes, of course you can - we've designed the advert space to accommodate a full colour logo.

How long will my advert be displayed?
To begin with, we will advertise your vacancy until the closing date with no additional charge. As more businesses, community-based organisations, charities and organisations make use of neLINK we anticipate keeping the same £10.00 donation fee and advertising vacancies for a minimum duration of two weeks, which offers unrivalled value.

Searching our vacancies
Because it costs so much to advertise a vacancy anywhere, in general up to two thirds of all vacancies aren't even advertised. That means most people are chasing the same jobs and opportunities that everybody else is chasing, with poor results as a consequence.
neLINK is different - we provide fast, direct access to jobs and vacancies that often aren't being promoted elsewhere.

It's all about 'who' you know
This might not be true all of the time, but having the right sort of links can make a big difference to your chances of success in lots of ways. We use work experience and volunteering opportunities as a great starting point for making contact with potential employers and helping you to make more links with the people who might be able to help you.

Searching through the jobs we advertise is quick and easy and what's more, it's a free service. We don't even charge job advertisers but instead, ask for a small donation. This helps towards website administration costs, web hosting and site development.
If you are serious about your own self development or separating yourself from the competition to gain a great job, then check out the work experience and volunteering sections and take advantage of what they offer you.
