We use CJS and one other specialist website to advertise for our Ranger and Assistant Ranger posts and, although both yield good results, our figures consistently show that, where the relevant information is given by the applicants, the highest number appear to come to us via CJS.  On the two most recent occasions, it was also noticed that eleven out of the total of twelve shortlisted candidates stated that they had seen the advert on CJS.  Interestingly, among those who are not shortlisted, there was a rate of 48% unknowns (Asst Ranger) and 26% unknowns (Ranger) whereas all those shortlisted had completed the marketing section at the end of their form.
