Let's face it, there are a lot of Job sites out there. Sometimes it easier just to find one that works for you and stick with it. It's more important to know how to use them effectively and of course, it always helps if you know what you're looking for. If you haven't already, sit down and take some time to review your skills and look at the types of work or sector that interest you. You can find out more about this on the Sector skills and Check your skills pages. Having a starting point from where you can start to search for the right roles that suit you, is important. If you need help with this then get in touch with our Journey to Work team.

Jobsites can be used for:

  • searching for jobs by location and job title.
  • setting up automatic email alerts for new job opportunities
  • some jobsites provide the opportunity to save your CV to the jobsite’s CV database for employers to search for candidates with experience or skills relevant to them

There are lots of sites and here are a few more prominent and successful ones being used.
