The Best Job Boards in the UK

Job search

Firstly – before you start job hunting

Still using your old out-of-date CV?….. STOP!  Now’s the time to work on it so that’s it’s ready BEFORE you job hunt. If you’re struggling, let me help.

New CV up-to-date and ready to go?

If you are ready to start searching for a new job, one of your next tasks will be to sign up for text or email alerts on some job boards. Here are some of the best and most popular job boards to help you.

Best Job boards online

The internet has made a search for jobs quicker, easier and a lot wider. To speed up your search and make it as efficient as possible, it is important to be as targeted and specific as possible. Checking the deadline is important too and will avoid time-wasting. If you’re not sure that the vacancy still exists, email the employer or phone the company to check.

There are many job sites to choose from. Here are some that I recommend:

Upload your CV and let the jobs find you –

Did you know that LinkedIn is a great place to find jobs and connect with recruiters? – or let me do it for you.

Recruitment agencies

Be choosy about recruitment agencies. The ones I recommend are listed below. There are also lots of good job boards online and I recommend setting up text or email (or both!) alerts so that you get a message as soon as one is posted that suits you. If you don’t have access to the internet try your local library, it’s usually free.

Some employers use them as their main method of recruiting, so do your research.
