Searching for a job in South Wales online.
One of the first places that you may wish to start looking for jobs in South Wales is online resources. Live jobs are updated through the government's DirectGov job search portal and can be narrowed down through an accurate keyword search as well as your exact desired location.
Other online resources for jobs in South Wales
Welsh jobs can also be found on other job search engine portals such as Jobsite.co.uk. Much like the DirectGov website, this search engine allows for you to narrow your search down according to keywords and the location that you wish to work in. You may also want to try resources such as Craigs List and Gum Tree to look for evening, part-time and Sunday jobs in South Wales.
Visiting your local job centre to find a job
If you are having difficulty finding a job in South Wales, one of the best places for you to visit is your local job centre. They provide the same search functions as the DirectGov website, but they can also help you with your search to ensure that you are making the most of the search engine. They can also point you in the direction of additional training courses that can enhance your prospects of becoming employed. They can also give additional information on enhancing your work prospects such as volunteering.
In addition to helping you find a job in South Wales, your local job centre can also help you to gain access to any benefits that you may be entitled to whilst you are unemployed.
Other offline resources for jobs in South Wales
Your local newspaper
Jobs in South Wales will also be advertised in your local newspaper. If you don't want to buy a copy, then you can always go to your local library to see if they have a copy to hand so that you can browse through the jobs section.
Not everyone advertises when they need additional staff and many people do rely on others coming door-to-door. This may not be the case for bigger companies, but local pubs and smaller businesses may have positions available if you go to them with your CV or give them a call.
