WEB WATCH — Desperate for up-to-the-minute construction news and job alerts? Then look no further – access to Building magazine’s website is completely free for the next four weeks.
There’s a chance you may be reading this article in somebody else’s Building magazine – maybe your subscription renewal is in the post. Or maybe you’re last in line to receive the office copy. Whatever the reason, don’t fret because access to www.building.co.uk is completely free from today for four weeks.
You will be able to access the last 10 years of the Building archive and get hold of Building’s toolkits on sustainability, legal matters and data. There’s also access to web exclusives such as law firm Fenwick Elliott’s case of the week.
For employers advertising vacancies there is an exciting opportunity on our jobs site this week. For a limited period, jobs listings will be free on Building4jobs. The site is designed to attract the best candidates, and advertisers can enhance their entries by using features such as company profiles, featured jobs, logos, job casts and MPU adverts. To find out more about Building’s free job listings just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll take this opportunity to highlight my favourite element of building4jobs.co.uk – the salary checker. It’s the best way to make sure that you are not being sold short by your employer. Not only does it cover dozens of job types, it also checks salaries across UK regions. Its a pity there isn’t a similar checker for construction journalists...
