Advertising a vacancy instructions

1. Check to see if your organisation is a Clinks member

Clinks members can post vacancies on the Clinks website for free. Non-members may post a vacancy for £70. If you are unsure if your organisation is a member or not, click here to check. If you are not yet a member, you can find out more information on how to become one here.

2. Log-in or register on the Clinks website

You need to be logged in to the Clinks website to post a job. Click here to log in, or register if you have not yet signed up. Ensure that you select your organisation from the drop-down list - this will ensure that the site recognises your membership status if applicable.

3. Add the vacancy details

Once logged in, return to the vacancies page here. Click on the 'Post a Job' button on the right hand-side to post a vacancy.

Vacancies should be within your organisation, in the criminal justice system and be open to applications from everyone. We encourage all organisations to sign up to the Ban the Box campaign and welcome applications from people with convictions. For more guidance, please see Unlock and Nacro’s websites.

4. The vacancy will appear as soon as possible

We need to review each job advert to ensure that it is appropriate before it is published on our website.

  • For members' job vacancies, this may take up to two working days.
  • For non-members' job vacancies, payment will need to be made in full before the vacancy is published.

5. Light Lunch and Twitter

We will try and share as many members' vacancies as we can in the Light Lunch ebulletin, which is sent out every Friday. Non-members' vacancies won't be promoted in Light Lunch. The jobs board is also regularly promoted on Twitter. Combined, Light Lunch and our Twitter account reach an estimated 15,000 people with an interest in the voluntary sector working in the criminal justice system. 

6. Featured vacancies

Members’ vacancies can be promoted as a guaranteed stand-alone listing in Light Lunch for a £100 fee per vacancy. The listing has a maximum of 125 words about the role, as well as key details such as location and salary and a link to your website. If you would like to promote your vacancy, just tick the 'featured listing' box on the online form and we will be in touch.
