If you have found any abusive or fraudulent job advertisements, please send us a message via the “Contact Form” with the link (URL) and we will remove that particular job advertisement immediately.

If you have found a job advertisement that is no longer being published on our website it may be due to the fact that we have manually removed it from our system or it has been removed by the original publisher of the content.

To get the most accurate and up to date details about a specific vacancy you need to contact the company or the author of the job advertisement.

I have posted a job ad but I can’t find it on jobsDB - where is my job ad?

There are four main reasons why you may not find your free job ad on jobsDB:

Your job ad is still being checked for quality. This process can take from five hours to 24 hours. You can check the current status of your ad in the Employer centre by logging in as an employer here For the same reason, the changes you make to ads may take up to four hours to go live.

Your ad has passed the 28-day time limit. All self-posted ads are active for 28 days and then they expire automatically. If you were unsuccessful in finding a candidate, you can easily repost the ad on your Employer account.

Your ad has not passed our quality checking and will not be published. Typically, this is because the ad is for a business opportunity rather than for genuine paid employment or because the ad is from an agency collecting the details of prospective workers rather than advertising actual real jobs. Any ad that requires any payment from jobseekers is likely to be refused. Any sales or marketing job that does not state what product or service is being marketed or sold will also be refused.

The location associated with the job ad is different from your intended location. If you have multiple locations you need to register a business for each location and then associate the job ad with the correct business location. You can have many businesses registered with us, but one business cannot have many locations.

If you still have any concerns about why your ad did not get published, please contact us here -
