Can I ask applicants to call me from the job advertisement

Learn why you can't include telephone numbers in job adverts

Job boards do not allow you to include telephone numbers in job advertisements. This may be because they:

  • Can't capture and track a job application
  • Don't want to 'police' employers using premium rate telephone numbers (it is unlawful to charge job seekers a fee for finding work)
  • Don't want you to lose an application because the call isn't answered

Additionally applicants find it a lot of hassle just to make an application when it is typically far easier to answer your common questions with a CV.
