What makes Red Advertising Different from other solutions?

Our large network of jobs boards target specific candidates so your advertising spend is being used exactly where its most effective, on attracting the right candidates you need.

Our solutions are adjusted to your specific requirements. We can forward job seekers to your own website for processing or applications can be sent to as many nominated email inboxes as you require. Either way we deliver candidates to you, the way you want them.

Furthermore, all of our sites operate on a domain format and we only advertise and promote our sites in the UK.

In all, we value you as a customer and work in your interests to ensure that your campaigns have the maximum impact. We like customers to remain with us for the long term and we always go that extra mile to ensure that customers get the maximum possible return on their advertising investment.

Is Red Advertising connected to any Recruitment Agency or any other Media company?

No. We are not owned by, connected to, nor have any shareholders or investors even remotely associated with any recruitment agency or recruitment consultancy of any nature. Nor are we owned or connected to any other media company. We are a completely independent company.

We are a private limited company owned by private share holders and our core business operations relate solely to “online classified advertising” and “online job website publishing”.

We are based and registered in the UK and are also registered for VAT.

What are the primary websites within the Red Advertising Network?

For full details of all of our websites you need to visit our Network Coverage Section.

All of our sites are top performing sites in their own right. We do not charge you twice because we own another jobs board that you should use that’s more effective than the one you are using with us. Our clients benefit from having access to all of our sites under one straight forward arrangement.

Advertising with Red Advertising provides full access to all of our marketing channels.

Has Red Advertising’s jobseeker traffic reach been Audited and Verified?

Our Job seeker traffic reach claims and our “website visitor logs” have been independently audited and verified by ABC Electronic ( A detailed audit certificate is available for inspection.

Red Advertising has been registered with ABCe since 29th November 2007 and we support its industry agreed standards for website traffic measurement and clarity.

You can view our audit history with ABC electronic here

When using an online candidate traffic provider or an online facility of this nature advertisers should always look for signs of an independent job seeker traffic audit where possible, to ensure that the visitor numbers claimed by the website in question are correctly recorded and that the jobs board’s visitor numbers are substantiated accordingly.

It’s not only important to know how big an advertising reach is but understanding the demographics of those visitors is equally as important. We aim to be as transparent as possible over our visitor numbers by appointing ABCe and update information on the breakdown of that candidate reach together with supporting information on how we attract candidates to our facility on a regular basis. 

What are your top performing Job sectors?

We attract a good range of candidates across our website network. The most popular sectors with Candidates are:-

1. Admin & Secretarial

What makes you a “Hybrid Jobs Board”?

We have been hailed as a “Hybrid Jobs Board” because we offer both pay per click and fixed price classified job advertising to clients. We were one of the first networks to offer classified job advertising solutions in this way.

As more clients move towards investing in their own website technology we have reacted to this by offering advanced ways of supporting them by driving candidates to their own websites with the facility for them to pay for exactly the visitors they get from us, by the click, if that is how they want to advertise. If they want fixed price advertising so they know the exact advertising spend in advance we can offer that also.

We offer both adverting methods for our clients and deliver candidate applications the way clients want them and that can be via your their own website technology or by traditional CV application processing by email to designated email inboxes.

How much does it cost to advertise with you?
