Yesterday (14 May) saw the launch of Find a job, the new service that will help make job searching and recruitment simpler.
Benefits of the new service
The new Find a job service replaces Universal Jobmatch. It offers a simple way for jobseekers to look for work and for employers to post job adverts. It has:
  • a simple login process
  • an enhanced search function
  • a facility for jobseekers to upload and share their CVs whilst automatically recording onsite activity and job applications
Help spread the word
If you are looking to advertise a vacancy, or simply have friends or family who are searching for a job or need help to recruit, tell them about Find a job.  It might just make their job search or recruitment that bit easier.
Please get in touch if you would like any advice or go to
