Where and When to Post Recruitment Ads

Intro

This is the current best practice for posting ads for new people, and skills, to join our team and community.

Adverts with a high success rate should remain the same or similar. Adverts with a low success rate need to be improved.

Feel welcome to make suggestions to improve efficiency in the comments below.

Posting for Volunteers

Where to post ads. Check the Missions Board in the Recuitment and Talent Scouts category too as they will have a more up to date overview of who is posting what and where, and what ads they currently need to go out.

The 2nd list is to be expanded and split up as the Recruitment team grows and can manage more ads each month. As more members join in these should be added as repeating Trello cards to make it easier to keep a track of when ads should be posted
