How do I search/find jobs

You can access all jobs by using the ‘Find a job’ button in the main menu, where you can browse and apply to the jobs that are relevant for you. But, for better relevance there are a few ways you can optimise your list pages too. You can do this by using our filter* (available from most list pages and the ‘Find a job’ page, using ‘keyword’ search (also available from that page and from the homepage), or you can browse vacancies by different hiring companies/recruiters.

Keyword / free text search

The 'keyword' search is a straightforward and simple solution to list relevant jobs. The word(s) you type in in the search box will go through all our jobs and list matching results for you.

Filters for more specific job lists

Filter is what we call the navigation menu where you can be more specific with your criterias for your next step in your career. We have split the filter into different topics/areas which hopefully will make it easier for you.

These include filters such as ‘Business Type’, where you can provide information if you prefer to work in an agency or in-house, ‘Specialism’, such as design, digital, account management and so on, but the most popular filter is ‘Location’, where you can specify which area/city, or even part of the city, you are interesting working in.

How to use job filters

  1. Go to ‘Find a job’ and you will see the filter straight away (if you are using a computer or tablet it is on the left hand side. If you are using a mobile, you will see it on top of the page under the main navigation.
  2. By selecting the filter suitable for you, the list page will change to display only jobs matching your criteria. You can be as narrow or broad as you like and the number next to each option is an indicator over how many vacancies we currently have available for the seleciton.TIPS: You can combine as many filters as you need.
  3. You can now browse and apply (or save) the positions which that are of interest for you. TIPS: If you would like to view more jobs for the filters you have selected, you can just register your email in the min form on top of the listings. We will then send a notification directly to your email with new opportunities when they come. This is also known as Job Alerts. See: Creating a job alert to ease your job hunt below.
