How to Advertise Vacancies

Page updated 16.09.2021

Recruitment Adverts

Deadline is the 25th of the month preceding cover date e.g. 25th Jan for February issue.

The Hockley Flyer has three distinct types of advertising spaces to advertise, the ‘Display Adverts’, ‘Business Pages’, and the ‘Classifieds’. Display adverts can be booked online and upload your artwork at the same time, the same with Business Pages, but our Classifieds section it really is best to register on the web site and book your advert online – it will appear quickly, and you have control to alter it at any time. Note our recruitment adverts are a slightly different size to the normal Display Adverts.

Recruitment Display

Advert sizes are for a full, half, and quarter page. These are full colour so worth thinking about taking advantage of that, logos and images can be incorporated into the design. We suggest around 125 words to a maximum 200 for a 1/4 page, 150 words to a maximum of 200 for 1/2 page and 300 words for a full page

Pros – Imagination can run wild with design, makes the biggest announcement. Cons – Must wait for next magazine to be printed or at least put online

Business Pages

Our Business Page Vacancy adverts are smaller adverts that are 4cm, 6cm and 8cm by 1 column, which are boxed adverts in the Classified Vacancy section. These are full colour and can have loads of imagination in their design, but do think of the smaller size with the number of words. As a guide no more than 50 words for 4cm x 1 column.

Pros – Cost effective advert with a bit of design scope. Cons – Must wait for next magazine to be printed or at least put online, small(ish) size depending on what you book


These are the easiest adverts to place and go under the ‘Vacancies’ heading on both the web site and in the magazine in the Classified section. Typically adverts cost £4.50 for 1 month and have a character limit of 800 characters. Adverts will appear on the web site straight after we have approved them and in the next available issue of The Hockley Flyer.
