Where to find jobs online in the UK

With the recent recession, it is even more difficult to find work, but knowing where to look for work can be vital. The internet is an important resource when looking for work. If you do not have Internet access at home, visit the local library where you can use the computer for free.

Online

There are hundreds, if not thousands of jobs websites online; some are career-specific, such as IT jobs websites, whilst others are more general and contain a whole host of different jobs. The first thing to do before looking for a job is to do research. What jobs are in demand? How do you apply for them? Where are they found? Direct.gov.uk
Direct.gov.uk is the most common website, where all jobcentre vacancies are posted. Type in a job, location from your postcode, the hours you would like to work and the website will consult its database and bring up a list of the most suitable vacancies. If you look on the right of the screen, you will find an option 'Jobs from other locations' tab. Click on this for more jobs in the local area. Local authority jobs or private sector jobs will often appear in this section. Monster.co.uk Monsterjobs is a useful website where jobseekers can upload their CV, read job tips about interviews, filling out job applications and seek out job profiles. Totaljobs.com At Totaljobs.com, you can browse for jobs, upload your CV, and read careers' advice. Local authorities and the NHS (Jobs.nhs.uk) also have jobs databases which are updated on a regular basis. The sites listed above are not by any means the only job websites available. Typing jobs into any search engine will bring up hundreds of results to choose from. On these database, sites jobs in finance, computers, IT jobs, accountancy jobs and technology jobs, to name just a few, can be found by either searching by keyword or searching by category.

Recruitment agencies and newspapers

Reed Reed (Reed.co.uk) is a recruitment website and agency which offers a variety of jobs. The company works on behalf of others, managing the application process. Applications are submitted through its website and they are then passed on to the company advertising the job. Business agencies Accounting and Finance are all sectors which are found on Reed and a little Internet search can reveal specialised websites which offer these kinds of posts. Newspapers Newspapers which have a regular jobs section include: - The Guardian (also available online)
