Jobs must be advertised with the Job Centre
and one other method which includes:
National Newspaper - which must be published at least once a week and is marketed throughout the UK or throughout the devolved nation in which the job is located
Professional Journal - which is published for a particular field and is available nationally either through retail outlets or subscriptions. The journal must be published at least once a month and be relevant to the nature of the job.
Internet - there are no restrictions on the specific website but it must be an online version of a national newspaper, online version of a professional journal or the website of a prominent or professional recruitment organisation.
Organisations which have over 250 permanent employees in the UK are also permitted to advertise the job on their own website.
Resident labour market test Tier 2 (General) – advertising methods
28.25 The following sections describe the different methods of advertising we accept when conducting a resident labour market test. Unless an exemption applies, all jobs must be advertised using two of the methods set out in this section. In many cases this will be mandatory online advertising through obcentres, plus one other method.
Where advertising through Jobcentres is not mandatory, you can choose any of the permitted media to advertise in so you could choose one national newspaper and one professional journal. We will also accept two advertisements using the same form of media, for example advertisements on two different websites.
