Advertise on FE News
Our most popular advertising options since 2003 have been our site wide display advertisements, which are next to the articles and videos.
Our main headline banner advertising space is so popular that it is booked out for a year at a time! So please check for availability on the site wide advertising options.
We also have several other advertising options, including Home Page ‘section break banner advertisements’ and in article adverts (on both our written word articles and videos).
We usually have availability for site wide ‘Skyscraper’ advertisements (although it is again a good idea to check for availability as the Skyscrapers are very popular).
The Skyscrapers are 120 pixels wide and 225 pixels high and are on every news and video page. Skyscrapers cost £450 + vat per month.
Advertise on FE Careers
FE Careers has been the largest specialist job advertising site in Further Education, Apprenticeships and Work Based Learning since 2003, helping you find your next job in Learning and Development or your next member of staff. With job advertising from just £70 +VAT per month, click here for more job advertising options.
You can either run stand alone specialist recruitment adverts on FE Careers... or we can tailor a campaign on both FE Careers and FE News.
The audience on FE Careers and FE News are slightly different (as such we even split the stats as the audience are engaging with the sites in a different way). On FE News there is primarily an Executive audience within the sector... so you could run a Skyscraper advertisement to reach ‘Passive candidates’ who are happy in their role (and not registered with every recruitment agency known to man)... but who could be tempted by your exciting new opportunity.
