Why do we offer free advertising?

The short answer is because we always have.

CJS started as an aggregation service, pulling together adverts from various publications and putting them together into one handy newsletter package, one of the first search engines if you like, in 1994 the internet was not as big as it is today and google was four years away. The founders of CJS believed in putting back as much as they could and didn't want to charge the charities and organisations looking after our valuable countryside and wildlife; allowing those organisations to use their hard earned funds on something more vital than advertising.   They also wanted to provide as much information as they could to help people working across the sector and to offer advice (and hope) to those just starting out in their careers.   These are still our fundamental tenets and many people still can't believe that we offer so much free of charge and not only that but that we suggest cheaper options instead of piling on more 'added extras'. Please see our statement about social enterprise.
