The best sources of employment vacancies

Local newspapers are perhaps the main source of local employment vacancies and are particularly useful if you are not fully conversant with the internet or computers. Newspapers will include a jobs section at least once a week which will list vacancies from a variety of sectors; administrative and clerical, cleaning operatives, engineers, construction staff or consultants. The jobs advertisements will also list information on how to apply and contact details of the organisation.

The internet is a vast resource which provides a wealth of information to job seekers and it provides a significant amount of job vacancies both general and specialist. In addition, job seekers can find information about writing a professional CV and covering letter and find advice about interview techniques. The best sources of employment on the internet include the NHS website, Total Jobs, Reed Recruitment, The Guardian jobs website, direct.gov, Fish 4 Jobs or more specialist jobs websites such as Sector 1, the Civil Service Gateway or the Office for National Statistics.

The Jobcentre Plus includes a large jobs database whereby individuals can search through local and national jobs by industry, contract type or hours. When you find a job through the job centre it will be accompanied by a code. In order to obtain further information about individual jobs, you are required to telephone the job centre call centre and quote the reference number. The customer service representative will then provide you with all of the relevant information including where to apply and any contact information as required.
