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 2 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 ....
