Jobs (not free of charge)
Almost all of the online advertising on Gumtree.com is free of charge. With local websites in cities across the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Poland, you can post an advert in any of the following categories:
Posting an ad on Gumtree.com is quick and easy. Simply click the banner (or visit the home page and click on 'post an ad', on the left-hand side of the page). Then:
Choose the area and category where you would like your ad to appear.
Fill out all of the details of your ad in the posting form (Please be as descriptive as possible, and you can also include a photo in your ad!).
Then follow the prompts to submit the ad.
Once submitted, there will be a delay of about 3-4 hours before the ad will appear online, so please be patient. It may be quicker during week days, but may take longer during the weekend or in the evenings.
After submitting your ad, you will be sent a confirmation email which will contain your reference number and password. Keep this email, because you can use these details later to edit, repost or delete your ad.
The lifespan of an ad will vary, depending on the category in which it appears:
Accommodation ads – 30 days
Employment ads – 60 days
Community ads – 90 days
Friends/dating ads – 45 days
For sale ads – 45 days
Events/Gigs ads – Are removed after the date of the event
Posting a Job Ad
Posting a job ad on Gumtree.com requires a payment to be made.
Posting job ads is the same as posting any other ad on Gumtree, however at the end of the posting process, you are asked to choose between payment methods.
A credit card payment is the most common payment method and after entering your details the transaction is made securely by a third party secure site.
Once again, after submission, there will be a delay of about 3-4 hours before the ad will appear online, so please be patient. It may be quicker during week days, but may take longer during the weekend or in the evenings.
Upon submitting your posting online, you will be sent a confirmation email which will contain your reference number and password. Keep this email, because you can use these details later to return to this same form and edit, repost or delete the ad if required.
If you post more than 6 paid ads per month, opening an account with Gumtree can allow you to benefit from a price reduction.
More about Gumtree
Gumtree was started in London in March 2000, initially as a community site, designed to connect people who were either planning to move, or had just arrived in the city, and needed help getting started with accommodation, employment and social opportunities. Gumtree flourished and was purchased by eBay in May 2005.
Gumtree is now the largest online community in London with sites all over the UK, and is also used by thousands more before they arrive in the UK. It is now London’s largest flat share and jobsite, with visitor numbers doubling every 6 months.
