    Best place to advertise a job

    Our company struggles to get programmers to reply to job adverts and I was wondering where is the best place to advertise? I have pending adverts on UCLAN and Jobmatch.

    We are close to Grange-over-Sands, South Lake District, Cumbria, North West, UK. We are on the main Barrow to Preston train line, so commuting is not a problem. At the moment all I'm getting are emails like "I'm interested in your job, but can't program, anything else going?".

    Last time we couldn't find any programmers, so ended up with a mathematician. Before that we only got one (very good) candidate and that was because he used the parachute centre down the road.

    Same replies as my job adverts I see. What should I change in this job advert to attract a programmer?

    You should put your job offer(s) on dedicated sites/directories. Authentic Jobs, Das Auge, and Programmer Meet Designer are some I know (although not specifically UK centered), and there are probably a lot more. If the sites on which you post the offer are too general in their subject then chances are higher that irrelevant replies come in (as you noticed).

    The best place is notify on the social medias such as Face book, Twitter etc. One thing you can do, In your website itself develop a page for job notification. By surfing your site they can easily get the idea about this. I developed one site with the same option one year before

    You can advertise the job on any social media sites. Create a separate page for updating those details and share them with your friends and relatives.
