>>>From the UAG (Universities Advertising Group) and the University

>>Jobs for the Academic Community
>> is a an recruitment website owned and created by the
>>academic community. The service advertises job vacancies for
>>academic institutions around the world. It is an example of the
>>community working together to create something of value and is a
>>venture that we should be justly proud of.
>>In the 15 months since launch, has gone from strength
>>to strength. The website receives more than 12 000 visitors a day
>>and provides a free jobs-by-email alert service for thousands of
>>people around the world. Over 260 academic insitutions now
>>regularly advertise their vacancies on the site.
>>At just 40 pounds per advert, the website provides the academic
>>community with a cost-effective alternative to expensive methods of
>>recruitment advertising. Indeed, one institution has reported to us
>>that by using they have already saved 250 0000 pounds.
>>This is money we hope will be ploughed back into research and
>>As you can imagine, the majority of the traditional media are still
>>hostile to us. We have, however, had some success in persuading
>>elements of the press to be more co-operative. This is partly
>>because they are aware of the huge support that has
>>within the academic world and that the service is not just going to
>>'go away'.
>>Despite the success of to date there is still much to be
>>done. The more people academia know about, the more
>>effective it will become and the more money academic institutions
>>will be able to save. Therefore, if you have not already done so, I
>>would ask you to do any or all of the following:
>>- please visit and perhaps register with our jobs-by-
>>email facility
>>- contact us at and we will provide you with
>>promotional material for your department or institution
>>- inform friends and colleagues about the service (whether they are
>>in the UK or overseas)
>>- create a link to from any webpages you are
>>involved with
>>We also value your opinions, so if have any comments or
>>suggestions you would like to make about our service, please do
>>not hesitate to contact me directly.
>>Thank you.

>>ps I am sorry if you receive this message more than once.
