What is the Jobs Abroad Bulletin?
The Jobs Abroad Bulletin (JAB) is a set of job boards containing classified recruitment ads for people looking for mostly short term work abroad, volunteer work or to take a gap year. We have also introduced a board for those looking to study abroad.
How much does it cost to post a job to the Jobs Abroad Bulletin?
Nothing, it is free.
We started JAB to help promote our main website the Overseas Job Centre – it has done the job well. And as the Overseas Job Centre has publicised JAB we’ve built up a nice upward spiraling number of readers at minimal cost to ourselves for both publications. Secondly, JAB is only as good as the job vacancies it carries and we don’t want to place obstacles in the way of employers (particularly small organisations).
How often do you publish to JAB?
We add new posts sent to us in batches of 10 to 15. Depending on the circumstances we will usually add your advertisement within 7 days. When we are travelling and have limited access to regular or reliable internet connections it may take longer to add your posts.
In what format do you accept ads?
For our free service we only accept text ads.
Is there a word limit to my job post?
Yes, 300 words, though we are pretty lenient about the issue if you are advertising multiple vacancies within one advert.
Can I post more than one advertisement?
Yes, for paid positions we will, within reason, accept as many relevant ads as we have room for.
I want my advertising to remain on the front page of JAB. Is this possible?
Though advertising placed via our free service will move down the page as new jobs are added, we can offer a premium Featured Jobs service.
What type of job ads do you accept?
We use the following categories of work as headings in JAB: Tourism, Hospitality & Leisure; Ski Resort Jobs; Teaching & TEFL; Nursing & Care Work; Childcare; Farm & Animal Jobs; Office Jobs; Other Work. We also have Volunteer Jobs and Gap Year boards and one for those looking to advertise courses and study opportunities abroad.
Who reads JAB?
Our core readership is British or European, and aged between 18 and 30, though a significant number are from the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Many are based in their home country, while others are already overseas.
My government only allows certain nationalities with certain bits of official paper to work in certain jobs in my country. Should I mention this in my advertisement?
We have an international readership. If, for instance, you are only able to accept applications from EU nationals then we strongly recommend that you state this to avoid unwanted and useless applications. Or try “We cannot help with work visas or permits for non X nationals.”
Do you accept and display work from home ads?
Sorry, we don’t. We do not feel they are relevant to a readership intent on finding work far away from home in another country.
Do you accept and display ads from EFL and ESL recruiters and agents?
No, we do not. All EFL and ESL ads with a web email account (@gmail @163 etc) will be refused.
I cannot see my advertising in JAB. Why is this?
It can take us up to 7 days (occasionally more) to add new vacancies to our boards. Alternatively we may not have placed your advertisement because we do not feel the position is relevant to our readership or breaks our terms and conditions. We may have rejected your advertisement if the same or similar advertisement has been posted to us within the past three month (please enquire about our premium options should you wish to post more often), while advertisers constantly placing the same advertising over and over may have been banned for spamming our boards.
How can I cancel an advertisement currently displayed on JAB?
To cancel an advertisment, please send us the URL (the relevant page on the Jobs Abroad Bulletin) of your vacancy and we will remove the advertisment for you.
We’d like to say thank you for using your free services. Can we link to JAB from our website?
Yes please. We would appreciate a link to us if you have a website with a links page. We’ve provided a suggested text below:
