The PACT HR team can advise you on timelines for advert, shortlisting and interview dates upon request.

Publishers and printers all have their own deadlines, and in order to meet these we have set a deadline of our own which will ensure that we are able to produce and quality check the necessary artwork in a timely manner. Our publishing deadline is 12 noon, Tuesday for publication in any media from the following Monday (eg for an advert to be placed in TES on a Friday, we would need the advert text by 12 noon on the Tuesday of the previous week).

Deadlines may be brought forward to take account of school and bank holidays.  Please click here for a full schedule
