    You may already know that I run the University of Leicester Jobs Desk (see URL above). Can I congratulate you on your work and just say if there’s any way I can help or advise, please get in touch. The Jobs desk works from an Access database which creates HTML pages for location, job type, etc., and javascript pop-up windows for each job. You might find this sort of arrangement makes searching easier for your students (and anyone else, of course).

    Best wishes,

    Jim Roberts

  • Dear Jim,
    Thank you so much for your comment. As you can see, we’re running a rather simple-tech blog, but I’ll definitely check out your jobs board for ideas. Thanks so much for reading and reaching out.
    Best,
    Phillippa Pitts
