Why advertise with OSCAR?
Don't just take our word for it ... see what our clients say after advertising with us:
Thank you for advertising the above for us, we have been overwhelmed by the response. Most came through OSCAR, we did use xxxx and xxxx, but more responses from OSCAR. Thank you very much, we will use you again if needed. Graham Bright, Asst Pastor, Bible Hall Fellowship, July 2021
Thanks, we have been overwhelmed by the response we have received. We sent out 80 packs, received 29 applications. DW, July 2020
‘ I spent last year scrutinising whether or not Oscar is giving us the return on investment in terms of people mobilised to the field, and we’ve got 4 people in-process right now who initially found us on Oscar. So, thank you very much! I really like the analytics feature, by the way. Very helpful! Amanda, Pioneers, Dec 2020

Any site can claim to be comprehensive. With 620 Christian agencies, 520 Christian service organisations, 960 churches, 1040 resource listings and around 500 opportunity listings currently on our system (2368 total during 2020) ... no other UK website comes even close.

Re-advertise at no extra cost
If you don't appoint after the closing date and it's less than 90 days since your original advert went online, you may re-advertise the same position for FREE!
In addition to those who browse our website, every Friday over 1000 enquirers are emailed all the newly submitted online opportunities for that week (sign up here). Most of these have asked to receive it as they are actively looking for opportunities in Christian work, short-term or long-term. Many of these have signed up at one of the major Christian events where we host job boards (see exhibitions). Notification of our new jobs are also emailed monthly to over 2000 people on our email lists, many of whom are already in Christian work.
We have partnerships with several other recruitment services and Christian websites to help promote these opportunities. These include a number of online job aggregate sites from time to time, including Google Jobs. For job referrals with other Christian sites we have links into our website from Christians Abroad and Christian Medical Fellowship among others.
Social Media Promotion
We tweet notifications of opportunities to around 2000 OSCAR Twitter followers and post notifications to over 1500 followers on Facebook. We also regularly sponsor selected adverts on social media (i.e. Facebook ads) for maximum exposure.
We had 2,368 opportunities submitted to our site during 2020 from over 100 Christian organisations and churches. Many of our opportunities received over 1000 page views each whilst they were online! Advertisers can see their individual viewing stats from within their account. We've had some great success in recruiting for many organisations.
Recent developments to our system mean that these opportunities are now searchable by Finance, Duration, Activity, Organisation & Location as well as using any keywords. Each listing gets its own page making them Google friendly. The organisation's logo is included in both the search returns and your opportunity listing as standard, as are unlimited words in the description and attachments. Our whole site is fully responsive so works well on any device.
Premium as Standard
All this we do as standard, so you don't need to pay 'premium' prices for a premium quality service. Our low costs do not directly reflect the high value of what you're getting when you advertise with us compared to other job websites. OSCAR is a not-for-profit support ministry, so we keep our prices low to provide this as an affordable service to all who want to further the Kingdom and we desire to make it as accessible as possible to all Christian organisations and churches, large and small.
* Salary/Allowance: where there is a net payment from the organisation to the individual (i.e. no need for the individual to raise or live on personal support), even if it is insufficient to cover all the costs involved.
* Personal Support: where the candidate is required to have their own personal financial support for their one-off, outgoing or ongoing costs.
* Voluntary: where the role can be undertaken without any payment or need for personal support for one-off, outgoing or ongoing costs (personal or ministry). Usually only applies to UK based roles, as overseas roles in this category normally require the individual to cover their own travel costs.
Note: Opportunities that fit into more than one of these categories will normally be charged at the higher rate i.e. part salaried/part support roles.
