Guide to adding jobs to our site

If it's your first time adding a job to our website please read our guide below. Our process for adding jobs gives you more control over editing your job once it’s live, reduces our admin costs and keep our prices low for you.

Payment is upfront

Please be aware you'll need to pay for the job upfront using a Credit/Debit card. This means the job will go live on our site straight away rather than waiting for us to approve it.  The rates are per individual job advert £50 for Membership+ members or £120 standard rate (+ VAT if applicable).

Create an Account

You'll need to create an account with our website, just click on Login at the top of this screen and 'Create an Account' and follow the instructions. This means you'll be able to create a job and edit it once live, right up until the closing date of the job. If you’d like to benefit from free or discounted advertising rates join our Membership+ scheme.

Register for VAT Exemption

If you are a registered charity or meet other conditions set by HMRC then you won't need to pay VAT on our job adverts (advertising for charities is VAT exempt). Go to My Account and click the link to our VAT exemption form, it gets submitted to us and within 24 hours we'll check it and approve.  You will only need to do this once.

4 easy steps to add a job

  1. Login to your account, or create an account.
  2. Go to Jobs, click List your Vacancy.
  3. You'll be taken to Sagepay to pay using a debit/credit card.
  4. Click ‘Return to VONNE website’ and you'll be taken to ‘Create your Job Listing’ page. Fill in the details, and the job goes straight onto our website.


Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create an account?
Go to Login and click on Create an Account.

But my organisation is already a VONNE member?
You'll still need to create an individual account with our website to add jobs and events.

Why am I being charged the standard rate of £120 when we’re already members?
We’ve introduced a new member’s scheme called Membership+ which gives free and discounted rates for job advertising from March 2017. In order to ensure the future financial sustainability of VONNE, we are no longer providing free job discounts for free membership. Read more about our reasons for this. All existing VONNE members have become ‘Core’ members and are now charged a standard rate of £120 for advertising. To benefit from FREE and discounted advertising find out more about Membership+ and join today.

We’re Silver/Gold Membership+ Members - how do we claim our free job advertising?
When joining Membership+ you’ll have been emailed discount codes to use at the checkout stage to give you free job advertising. If you’ve lost these just give us a ring on 0191 2332000 and we’ll give you the code again.

I’ve lost my job advert discount code/I don’t know if we’ve used our code, how do I check?
Give us a ring on 0191 2332000 and we’ll check if it’s been used or not and give you the code again.

My colleague needs to add a job, will they be able to create an account?
Yes, they can create their own account. They should put in the full name of your member organisation when signing up so that the system automatically connects them.

Our charity doesn't have a credit/debit card, how do we pay?
Some of our advertisers use their own personal cards to pay then claim it back on expenses.
If you genuinely can’t use a debit/credit card then give us a call and we can give you access to add a job online and invoice you later. Please be aware there is a £10 admin charge for this.

I've forgotten my login details!
As long as you can remember the email address used, just click on the link Resend my Password. Otherwise give us a ring on 0191 233 2000.

I'm stuck, something has gone wrong!
Give us a ring on 0191 233 2000 and we're happy to help!

I'm not sure if we are VONNE members?
When you create your account online it asks you for your organisation name. It will try and match you with an existing member organisation record, but sometimes the spelling you've used might be different to what we have on record, so just give us a ring if you believe your organisation is a member and you aren't getting the discounted rate.

I want to add a job but I'm not a VONNE member, can I still add one?
You can still add a job, you'll be charged the higher standard rate. Read about our Membership+ scheme which gives access to free and discounted job advertising rates.

I think I've been charged the wrong amount.
Just give us a ring on 0191 2332000 and we'll take a look into it. If there has been a mistake we can quickly refund you the difference.

I've got more than one job to add today, do I pay for them all at once?
You'll need to pay for each job separately and add them one at a time.

I've got more than 1 job to add today, can I put them all in one advert?
If it’s for the same role, same salary, then yes (i.e. 2 x Development Workers at £25,000). If it’s for different roles then no, you'll need to add them and pay for them separately.

I need to change something in my advert, how do I change it?
Just login to the site, go to My Account and you'll see your job listed there. Click on the job to edit and re-save it, right up until the closing date.

How long can I put a job on for?
The limit is 90 days.

Why am I being charged VAT?
VONNE is VAT registered (number 194 2519 90) and therefore needs to charge VAT on job adverts. For charitable organisations (which are the vast majority of our advertisers) VAT will be charged at 0% as charities as exempt from paying VAT on adverts, so there is nothing to pay. For others, the VAT will be 20%.

If you believe your organisation is VAT exempt (for adverts) then you just need to fill in our VAT exemption form which you'll find under My Account once you've created a website account with us. Evidence to provide is either:

  • a charity registration number OR
  • your HMRC Charities recognition reference number (see how to apply for this) OR
  • or demonstrate that you are either ‘excepted' or ‘exempt' in a written statement.

A charity is excepted if its income is £100,000 or less AND it is a

  • church and chapel belonging to some Christian denominations
  • charity that provide premises for some types of schools
  • Scout and Guide group
  • charitable service fund of the armed forces

Exempt charities include:

  • most universities in England
  • many national museums and galleries
  • some school governing bodies or academy trusts
