How to get a job through Jobcenter online

In the United Kingdom, the Jobcentre or Jobcentre Plus is run by the government with the intention of giving jobs to the nations workforce. It has other functions but in this article, we will concentrate on how to get a job through the job centres online service. To learn how to use the online section of Jobcentre Plus, read the guide below.

How to find and use the correct website?

Conduct a search By conducting a search for the nearest job centre to your location within the UK, you will be directed to the Direct.gov.uk web-page. This service is operated by the Department for work and pensions and by clicking on jobs or job search will bring you to the opening page. Job search Thousands of new jobs are added every week to the extensive job database available through this government department.
Registering Once you have access to the database to make full use of the services available including applying for jobs online, you have to register your details. This is a simple process and allows you to save job searches and return to these at a later date.
Initial jobs and skills search You can use many different methods to find the jobs you are seeking. You can enter a job title and this will reveal all vacancies listed under that or similar headings. You can list your skills and find what is available through a search.

Searching for the right job

Job reference number If you already know the reference number for a particular job or vacancy, this can be typed into the relevant space and just that job and its description will be displayed. Jobs by location Alternatively, use the database to apply online for work by typing in your location (either the name or postcode), and local jobs to that area will be displayed. This again can be sorted by job title until a manageable list of options are available. A distance from your location option is also available from less than five miles to available jobs greater than 75 miles away.
Other options for finding jobs To conduct a search of available jobs, you can sort how many hours you are willing to work, whether the job you are seeking is to be permanent or temporary, and what part of the day or week you are seeking work for. Applying online Once you have found a position you are interested in, you can apply online. Some vacancies will have a contact address, telephone number or who to email for more information and it is up to each candidate to organize this for themselves. Other vacancies require you to contact the jobcentre and they will organise interviews on your behalf.
