Countryside Jobs Service – Readers Survey

It's been a turbulent few years and it's time we assessed how well CJS is fitting your needs and providing the services you want and need in a way that is simple and easy to use. Your opinions matter and we do listen. This survey is more in depth than previous ones, with quite a few open ended questions, as we work out how to ensure that CJS remains relevant to you: our readers. We're not expecting essays just a few words or a sentence or two at most. Please be honest - write your first response on reading the question.

The survey is broken into various sections you can complete as many as are appropriate or you want. There are only three compulsory questions everything else is entirely up to you and how much time you want to spend, we think it should take no more than 15 minutes.

We know everyone is incredibly busy and as a thank you to everyone who submits a survey will receive a month (four weeks) of CJS Weekly and one survey drawn at random will receive a full year's subscription. We also have some wonderful rewards on offer.

Only by knowing your opinions can we meet your needs and thus maintain our position as the Biggest and the Best.
