Improve your job hunting
The quickest way to set-up an email alert is to go to our job search page, enter your requirements in the search bar on the left then click the search button at the bottom. On the results page simply enter your email address in the box and click the ‘email me jobs like these’ button. (For more advanced options open a free account and select 'Add jobs by email' from your My Account page).
Throughout the website you'll find various places where you can search for jobs, create a new job alert or edit existing job alerts. In all of these places you'll find options to filter results so you'll just be shown the jobs you're interested in. All of the filters work in combination so you can filter by sector, area and job type all at the same time fif you wish, however here's an example of how you set things so you'll only see jobs located in the specific towns & cities near you:
To apply for jobs more quickly, create a free online profile or CV, track your job applications and access many more free job hunting features, open a free account (or login to your existing account) and then use the options on your My Account page.
There are two ways to apply for jobs using your tablet or smartphone:
- Our site is fully mobile enabled so you can search for jobs using any device; however some jobs require a CV as part of your application and currently most tablets and smartphones don’t have a ‘file upload’ feature. If you have your CV stored in one of the popular cloud services (Dropbox, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive) then you’ll be able to attach it straight from your device by selecting the relevant option, however if you don’t use one of these services then...
- If you open a free account and complete your online profile, whenever you want to apply for a job simply login and we’ll fill in the application form and attach your saved CV for you allowing you to apply for jobs with a single click. (Each time you apply for a job you'll still get the option to edit the covering letter we create for you or sawp your saved CV for a different one if you wish).
You may be receiving job alerts from us which include details of jobs throughout a large area of the country. You might have done this deliberately, or it might have happened by accident if you signed up for a job alert from our main jobs page without first searching for jobs in your area. Alternatively, you may just want to change the types of jobs that we alert you to. Here are two ways that you can manage your job alerts:
- Login to your account and go to the 'Manage Jobs by Email' page. Here you'll see all of your alerts and can amend them or delete the ones you don't want. (NOTE: The first time you registered for an alert we sent you an email entitled "Important last step - confirm your email address" - this email also contained your login details. If you can't find this email try looking in your spam folder to see if it went in there. If you still can't find it, send us an email to email@example.com and we can activate your account for you so you can then reset your password and login).
- At the bottom of each job alert email we send you'll find an unsubscribe link. Clicking the link will delete the alert for that particular email. (If you have more than one alert running you'll need to click the unsubscribe link on each email if you want to stop them all. Alternatively, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can cancel them all for you).
If you already know your password you can change it at any time by logging in to your account and going to the 'Account Registration Details' page. If you don't know your password you can ask us to reset it for you using the password reset page here.
When you ask us to reset your password, if you get a 'Password reset error' this is because you didn't click the confirmation link in the email we sent you when you first registered, and so your account was never activated. You can resolve this by finding the email we sent you entitled "Important last step - confirm your email address" (or the reminder we may have sent a week later, entitled "Final reminder - please confirm your email address") and clicking the confirmation link within it. If you can't find the email try looking in your spam folder. If you still can't find it send us an email to email@example.com and we can activate your account for you.
When you open an account, apply for a job or register for a job alert, we'll immediately send you an email with a confirmation link that you'll need to click to confirm your email address. If you don't click the link in this email (or in the reminder email we'll send you a week later), we'll assume that you don't want to hear from us and after a short time we will delete your records from our database. However in the mean time our system won't let you open another account using the same email address. So if you are trying to open an account and you get a 'this email is already registered' error the best thing to do is to find the email we sent you entitled 'Important last step - confirm your email address' (or in the reminder we send a week later entitled 'Final reminder - please confirm your email address) and click the confirmation link in there. If you can't the email try looking in your spam folder to see if it went in there by mistake. If you still can't find it send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will activate your account for you.
Once you open a free account, your 'My Job Applications' page will include details of any jobs that you applied for while you were logged in. If you applied for a job without logging in or before you opened your account that application won't be listed, so it's always best to login before applying for any jobs. When you login, if you've completed your online profile (which you can do via your 'My Account' page) we'll even use these details to fill in the job application form for you so all you have to do is to click apply.
We operate as a job board - all of the job adverts on our site are posted by other companies. When you apply for a job we immediately forward your application to the correct recruiter at the relevant company. Unfortunately, from that stage forward we don't receive any further details about the progress of your application, so to find out more you'll need to contact the company who posted the job advert you applied to. You'll find the company's name in the summary information at the top of each job advert. (Once you open a free account, your 'My Job Applications' page will include details of any jobs that you applied for while you were logged in. As well as being able to get back to the original job advert, you'll also be able to see the application you submitted so you'll also know that it went through OK). Some companies choose to include their contact details within job adverts, others do not. If the job advert doesn't include the company's contact details and you'd like to get in touch with them, our advice is to 'Google' the company and get in touch with them using the details on the careers page of their website.
