The department for communities and local government said some ads would still be placed in local newspapers, but said, "It can cost £5,000 to £10,000 to place an advert in some national newspapers."
It will focus on publishing job vacancies online in an open and standardised format, allowing the information to be reused without charge.
"Over time, putting job adverts online will drive down advertising costs, make it easier to compare pay ranges within and across councils, and show local people where their council tax goes," the department said.
