Non-educational jobs forum
Just thinking that now we are less educational geeks, rather, educating geeks we could do with a non-educational jobs forum.
I think it should be kept separate to the educational forum as the hard and fast members may still want to use that and stay in the sector, plus it's free for schools to advertise, however somewhere for people wanting out, or those visitors that find us via google, it would be good.
Plus we can have it locked down so only pre-approved posts can go up, and sufficient remuneration awarded to the coffers. Could also be a new stream of advertising traffic.
Unless we already have this in which case, ignore me, i'm not up to speed.

You? Not up to speed? Perish the thought
Although at Bett I did only get two hugs which I did feel was NOT your usual speed, I must say
As for the forum - good idea if someone has the time to administer it

Separating educational and non-educational jobs may be a good idea. The alternative is to rename the forum as "IT jobs". Personally I prefer the latter as I think most of us would be open to jobs in either side if we were after a change.
Locking down is very restrictive. People like me post up both educational and non-educational jobs we spot in the local paper or in our travels on the web simply because they might be of interest to another edugeek. Having to get yourself approved before posting jobs could end up creating more for those policing it than they actually need and put some people off advertising jobs in their school as it would 'blow their cover'.

I don't think you need to have 2 different forums, not all of us in education want to stay in education and keeping them all together makes it for interesting reading sometimes
In terms of making it a source of revenue... it could work, you have a targetted userbase with key skills in IT... resourcers would love to post IT jobs here... I can think of 2 agencies that need to wise up, this would be a better place for them to start and likely cheaper than advertising on reed, totaljobs or the IT Job board.
