The Escape Team
Escape the City acts as a job board, we let StartUps, Social Enterprises and cool SMEs advertise jobs on our website. We charge for the listing, and you can choose to purchase our ‘add-ons’ which help boost your job’s performance and increase the promotion of your brand.
We don’t have any hidden charges, and if you hire someone through us there is no additional fee. We do ask that you let us know though, as we love collecting success messages and helping companies find a superstar!
Our audience is unique in that it consists of talented, ambitious and highly qualified professionals that are looking for a new challenge or direction. They come from all walks of life and professional backgrounds such as consultancy, sales and marketing, project management, business development, finance, education and law - just to name a few.

YES! We currently offer an exclusive discount for startups, less than two years old, social enterprises and not-for-profits of 20% site wide.
Typically anything with potential for personal growth in an interesting company is welcome! Roles in sales, business development, marketing, finance, education, managerial or high level positions all perform well on Escape. We look for interesting jobs with great companies, have a look here to see who is currently advertising with us.
Pure technical roles tend not to perform too well on our site. We have a list of great sites here if you want to find a dev, CTO or similar.
Technical support roles and Data Scientist roles however do perform well on our site.
To post a job on Escape the City is fast, easy and completely in your control! All you have to do is head to this page, check ‘’I am new to Escape The City’ and follow the step-by-step process. Do try and fill it in thoroughly, the more information you can put in the listing, the better understanding candidates will have and the stronger your brand presence will become.
The payment is taken at the end, using our payments provider Stripe, so have your credit/debit card handy.
We offer permanent employer pages that help organisations like yours find Escape the City members. We recommend you populate this with exciting content and descriptions about your company values and what you can offer our Escapees!
We are assembling a directory of the most progressive and exciting companies in the world. Having a page allows you to promote your employer brand and ‘hire’ when you’re not even hiring.

We give you two options:
Express Interest is a one-click application process for the candidate. It means that they can apply with a cover letter and their Escape the City profile. It looks like this.
Express Interest increases candidate applications by about 30% and means that you can track the whole process from within your Escape profile - no more routing around your inbox trying to find that pesky CV!
We have a strict no unpaid internships policy.
We have adopted this approach because unpaid internships are illegal and because we feel that if someone is going to properly work for you (as opposed to gain a small amount of experience) then they deserve to at least receive a living wage.
It is illegal in the UK to advertise for or ‘employ’ unpaid interns. This PDF has more information.
If you are looking to hire a graduate or paid intern you are very welcome to use our site. We have a strong student demographic using us to look for exciting entry-level opportunities.
If you are looking for someone to work for you for free we encourage you to structure it as unpaid work experience (maximum duration of 4 weeks) or as a voluntary role (not for profits only).
NB. We moderate all listings submitted through the site and we won’t publish roles that are clearly unpaid internships dressed as voluntary positions!
If you’re recruiting on behalf of a company, drop us a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org, we’ll then check to see if that company has an existing account. If it does, we’ll add you as an admin to that account, if not you can create a new account from scratch.
Express Interest is a one-click application process for the candidate. It means that they can apply with a cover letter and their Escape the City profile.
We’ve built a clever bit of software that targets the top 100 members that are looking for a job like yours (based on the requirements of your job listing), we analyse their past behaviours (like what jobs they have previously looked at or applied for) and send them an email telling them about your awesome job. The member can then apply for the job if it looks like the right role for them (meaning that the candidate is really engaged and committed to applying to you). Targeted notifications tend to increase the number of applicants by 25%. These applicants have been specially selected, so are more likely to exactly match your requirements.
We’ve given you the option to highlight your job, and if you choose to do so it’ll have a yellow background making it stand out on the job board when candidates are looking for their next role. Highlighted jobs tend to have 20% more applicants.
When a candidate is looking at the job board, right at the top of the page is a carousel with the featured jobs. These jobs have an image and a little text about the role. It makes your job stand out and increases branding as the image is so visible. Featured jobs tend to have 25% more applicants.
Social Media Plug:
We’ve discovered this new technology called Social Media, and when you post information to it, hundreds and thousands of people get to see it…. Which is why we want to tell everyone out there about your awesome job! We post to Facebook and Twitter. Social Media Plugs draw in 20% more applicants typically.
We want you to have the best experience of Escape, and for most people, that usually means getting as many awesome and talented people to apply to your job. Our add-ons drives traffic to your job posting and gets the job out there.
We understand that when hiring someone, you don’t want to rush and end up with the wrong person in the team. Hiring is super important, and something that should be carefully considered. To reflect this, we let you extend your listing for free - yes, totally free. You also have the option of ‘bumping’ your listing which will put your listing back to the top of the page when members are looking for jobs.
We want everybody to love Escape and to maintain our image as the go-to site to hire the best team. If this isn’t the case with you, then of course, you get your money back.
We love success stories and are really keen to receive yours!
