    (3) Or email photos to: info msk We'll process as time allows.

    (4) Copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop can also work. But if the photos are large sometimes the upload fails, so we don't officially support this option. In any case, please watch for the Thank you for posting email — it confirms that your posting is active.

    We request a small fee to help you fill this role with the best possible person. It's how we sustain this service.

    If you're hiring someone who you'll be paying many thousands in wages or salary, is it good budgeting to pinch pennies to find the right person?

    Can't pay? If you truly can't budget for hiring — funders often overlook this — we offer an option for that. No posting is rejected due to an honest inability to pay. Just click the dropdown.

    The bottom line: We'll help you find the best candidate. If this is your first time here, you'll be surprised by the calibre of people you'll reach, and the depth of our service.

    — most employers decide the benefits are far greater. | Why a fee?Why not free? Isn't this for the community? Is it exploitive?

    Exactly the opposite. So-called social media may seem free, but they are anything but. At FoodWork there is –

    • no secret algorithm controlling who sees your post
    • no corporate corruption
    • no fossil fuel complicity
    • no greenwash
    • real, dedicated people, working for you and the cause.

    Posting here works. If you value great staff, you'll value posting here. The benefits of posting far exceed our modest fee.

    (1) Finding the best candidate really is worth something — it is fundamental to your mission, your success.
    (2) No matter how dedicated we are, if we couldn't charge for our work, we couldn't be here long.
    (3) Be the change you wish to see.

    Can't pay?
