Gumtree now offers three unique ad types; Plus,Featured and Premium. Each ad type has certain features and benefits designed to increase visibility and applications for your jobs, and each lasts for 45 days.

What sets Gumtree apart from other job boards is that there are no sign up fees, no ongoing fees, no minimum contract length and no committed spends. You simply pay for the number of job ads you post each month, on a rolling month-to-month commitment. And, volume discounts apply so the more ads you post, the more you can save.

Over the last few weeks, Gumtree has phased out support for its “free” job ad posting with all support completely removed by 1 April 2016.

To continue posting job ads to Gumtree through adlogic or MyRecruitment+ the end to end Recruitment Software, after 1 April 2016, you will need to sign up to a Gumtree Jobs Professional account.
