Yes, this is one of the search criteria. Select a location and choose how far you are willing to travel – anywhere from 1 to 750 miles.
We understand that not everyone has time in their day to search for jobs. If you set up Job Alerts you will have jobs emailed directly to your inbox that match your criteria.
We also recommend contacting recruitment agencies that are local to you, so they have the resources to look for work on your behalf. We have an A-Z Directory of all the employers and recruitment agencies that use our website if you would like to contact them directly
Please note: Job Alerts are based on certain criteria including keywords, so we recommend you search the database every now and then to ensure you aren't missing any jobs.
Try using different keywords and adding as much detail as possible within the search criteria. This could reduce the number of results you receive but they should be more relevant. Also we would recommend using the Boolean search method when running job searches
Yes, enter the language (e.g. French or Spanish) in the keyword box on the search jobs page and the system will automatically retrieve jobs that have this keyword in the description or job title.
We recommend using this method if you are searching for a very specific role.
The basic Boolean method is a combination of AND, OR, NOT, "..." and brackets.
For example, if you are looking for a receptionist role but not in a school, you could enter the following in the keyword box:
(Receptionist OR Secretary) NOT School
This would return results for either receptionist or secretarial positions but nothing including schools. The brackets are used as a container so that our search engine knows that the NOT School variable applies to both keywords, and not just one or the other.
Or if you are looking for a sales manager role but not within recruitment you could enter:
"Sales Manager" NOT Recruitment
As you can see, Sales Manager has been put in speech marks. If you are ever looking for a specific job title or a phrase that is more than one word long, it is best to put it in speech marks so that the search return all of the words together. For example if we had searched Sales Manager without speech marks, the system would search for either the word sales or the word manager rather than the two words together.
For further assistance with the Boolean search method, please call our Candidate Department on 01252 810992.
