Last weeks Herald Plymouth Association of Primary Heads

We propose to place an advertisement in The Herald each week to point applications at The Schools’ Post Website. This will help to generate more enquires to the site and therefore increase the number of hits. There will be an additional charge for each position that is listed (The more schools that use it - the cheaper it is). The estimated cost of this additional charge ranges from £50 to £70 for each position, depending on the amount of positions advertised. A minimum of 3 positions will have to be advertised to ensure these rates can be offered. The cost, including the cost of the Herald listing is still substantially cheaper than a full advertisement in the Herald. Below is last weeks listing in the recruitment section of The Herald ....
