Does anyone have any ideas of a good place to advertise a job?

I'm trying to expand my sales team (by 1 so not a great expansion)but I'm struggling to find anyone. In the past we've posted adds on gumtree and had literally 100's of responses, granted only a dozen or so would be even remotely worth considering but this time we only had 6 responses; called 2 in for interview and they didn't even show up! I know the unemployment rate fell a little last month but surely there is still 1 or 2 out there looking for work?

I've posted my ad on this site yesterday (no response so far), it's the sales exec one, but if anyone out there has any ideas of where else I could advertise (that doesn't cost a fortune - I can't afford to use agencies who'll want a minimum 15% in commission) or knows of anyone looking for work I'd appreciate the help.

Sorry James, wasn't sure if this classed as discussion or business.

James B, the full details are in the classifieds but a summary may be useful for anyone who may know someone......

I have a coffee and tea distribution company, selling to the Hotel, restaurant, cafe sector. We distribute an Italian espresso coffee, a premium Italian range of teas plus a more everday British range of teas, coffee machines and sundries (sugar, syrups, frappes etc...). The job is for a sales person (full time) basically to go out and find new customers and to maintain them and our current customers.
