How to write an effective equine job vacancy advert

How to write an effective job vacancy advert

Finding and employing a new member of staff for your yard can be a daunting prospect, with so many possible routes to consider and potential pitfalls along the way. Whichever route you choose, to stand the best chance of success you are going to have to write an advert for your job vacancy. To help you out, Caroline Carter Recruitment has put together a suggestion for the recipe to a good job vacancy advert. This will not only help you not only attract equine jobseekers, but will help you to define your needs and your wishes regarding your next equine employee.

What you will need

  • First and foremost, an active subscription to The Grooms List website. The Grooms List has been evolved from traditional designs to give you the tools you need to fill your equine job vacancy as easily and as quickly as possible.
  • Our easy-to-use Post A Job form walks you through the process of writing your advert, prompting you to provide the information required for jobseekers to find your vacancy, and for them to make the decision to enquire or apply for it.
  • Ideally, some nice photographs that will bring your job to life for jobseekers, by featuring the horses, the yard, the accommodation and maybe even the environment they are considering joining.
  • You also need to ensure you are familiar with the latest employment legislation and that your salary package is compliant with this, particular to your country of residence. See Useful Links for more information.
