Posting a Brief

How it works

  • It is free to post a brief via the Post a Brief service for all our users to view and members to pitch for on Jump Forward.

  • Briefs posted on Jump Forward via this route are for budgets up to the value of 2,000.00.
  • Briefs are displayed anonymously on Jump Forward and as such all briefs posted on Jump Forward must be done so in the 3rd party tense.
  • Once you Register With Us simply post all details of the brief on the site using the data form provided.

  • For security purposes we never divulge a pitching member's personal address. 
  • It is then up to you to arrange with the pitcher payment of your 'budget' and delivery of their work and all the hard copies.
  • Your 'budget' is the sum you will pay the winning pitcher to own the work outright.
  • You can edit your brief posting at any time via your My Postings service on your navigator. 

 General advice

  • Brief postings are displayed on Jump Forward until their pitching closing date; you can extend the pitching closing date by editing the brief posting via your My Postings service.

  • All information and pitches regarding an individual brief posting, along with the brief posting itself are deleted from Jump Forward and your My Postings service four weeks after the pitching closing date, unless the pitching closing date has been extended.
  • Should the brief be for work which includes your company name or a direct association to your company it must be described in the 3rd party tense, as with external briefs, in the 'brief description' section provided.  
  • Be as clear and concise as possible.
  • Give a clear pitching closing date.
