Advertising with us

Website Advertising

Website advertising is achieved through a banner bar displayed on website pages and a listing on the jobs/products/services advertising page. Both the listing and banner bar link through to a PDF.

Each time a website visitor loads a webpage a banner bar is ‘selected’ from those active at the time. Effectively, as a visitor moves from page to page (or refreshes a page), a different active banner bar is displayed each time.

At present, the adverts presented in this way are available to all website visitors; viewing is NOT restricted to members only.

Inside OR Advertising

Advertising via the monthly news magazine Inside OR is delivered in two media; printed hardcopy and electronic copy. Adverts are offered in half or full page size; the same basic price applies to both.

Printed (colour) copies are currently sent to approximately 1100 members.

An email directing readers to the electronic version (currently a PDF) is sent to all members (approximately 2500). Members have to log-in to the website to view the electronic version.

In the period between issues, a further electronic bulletin is emailed to all members. This carries a reminder to look at the most recent issue, links to adverts and a diary of events and training courses.


The offered pricing model is a simple one; there is no price difference for advertising appointments, products or services. Prices are offered for advertising in Inside OR and on the website, or a small reduction is offered for website advertising only. A special rate is offered for academic posts. The same price applies to half and full page adverts in Inside OR, and there is no additional charge for colour.

Notice to advertisers submitting copy electronically

Due to variations in the way that different devices may output files, when advertisements are submitted in digital form there exists a possibility of variations occurring in word flow and the appearance of certain graphics between the originally created version of the advertisement and the final print. It is impossible for us to identify any such variations unless we are provided with hard copy against which we can check.

We therefore regret that we cannot accept responsibility for variations or errors in the final print of digitally submitted advertisements or allow credits in respect of such variations unless we are provided with a colour printout of the advertisement, which must reach this office by the copy submission date.

The OR Society’s advertising for jobs, products and services is delivered through two channels; its website and its monthly news magazine Inside OR
