 questions about foyer features


If I advertise jobs regularly, do you offer any special packages?

We sure do! Check out our Annual Packages here. Creative Foyer job listing prices are the most afforadable in the market place and have been designed to match an arts company budget. If you are always in the recruitment game we also recommend checking out the Short Notice Board to speed up the process and find staff for those quick turn around temp and casual gigs.


How do you make selections for Creative Talk and So Now You Know?

Even though we have great contacts and ideas, we are always open to suggestions for our Creative Talk and So Now You Know series. So if you want to profile your organisation or a particular person from within your company, drop us a line with your suggestion. Remember we are looking for arts leaders and innovators for the Creative Talk series, and for So Now You Know... it just has to be something that isn't obvious to those not yet in the know.


Who can see my resume if I am listed on the Short Notice Board?

The Short Notice Board is only accessible to employers who register and pay to search. Your details and resume are therefore restricted to only being viewed by employers who are genuinely seeking to find staff for quick turn around, temp and casual roles.


How does the Real Hot Jobs work?

As we say, our Real Hot Jobs are indeed real! Other arts job websites have employers bid or pay top dollar for the privilege to be profiled as a top or hot job. We, however, don't charge for this. Instead we use a range of criteria to highlight the Real Hot Jobs. The critiera includes the salary range for the type of position, the time laspsed since the job was last advertised (for example we consider if it is a rare offering, or a brand new opportunity), and the level of the position within the organisation. We also consider other benefits of the role, including whether it offers a great profile and contacts, a flexible work environment, the opportunity to be creative or strategic, professional development, internal promotion opportunities and more.

Can you send an email for my company to your e-news membership?

No. We don't spam our Foyer Crowd with loads of emails. We like to keep things simple with a once a week only e-news bulletin. However if you are an advertiser on the site or have a Gold Listing in the Creative Business Centre we do offer the opportunity for you to include an advert, short article or special offer within our weekly e-news. For more information on advertising on the site click here or for information on listing in the Creative Business Centre click here.
