Whether you're based in the Peterborough area of Northamptonshire already, or are planning to relocate there in the near future, we hope we can help you find the ideal job for your experience and skill set with our handy guide to Peterborough jobs today.

Despite the fact that the economy is still trying to recover from the economic crisis which is affecting most of the countries in the western world and beyond, you might be surprised to find that there are actually quite a high volume of jobs available in the Peterborough area.

Depending on what field your line of work is in, you'll have plenty of potential positions to choose from by using some of the most popular job sites in the United Kingdom. However, the competition will be fierce so it'll be up to you to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

The best way to do this is to ensure that your CV is up to date, informative and doesn't contain any unnecessary padding. The best practice here is to narrow down your previous experience to include only positions relevant to the job you're applying for.

That doesn't mean that you shouldn't include positions held outside that field of work, instead it means that you should thoroughly vet the information included on it to ensure that you only list jobs which require skills or personality traits that reflect admirably on your ability to do the job you are applying for.

Previous roles that may seem unconnected can actually go a long way to making you seem a much more attractive candidate. For example, if you needed to work to tight deadlines in a previous, unconnected job, it's worth mentioning it since it displays a proven ability to work under pressure, deliver your work punctually and to work to tight confines placed upon you.

These are the kind of things that employers look for when hiring, so it is also important that you justify the inclusion of seemingly unrelated jobs by referencing them in your cover letter.

Next, you'll need to make sure that all your references and contact numbers are up to date. There is nothing that drains employer confidence in a candidate than incomplete or inaccurate references. Only include the most recent and most relevant, and always assume that every reference you list will be contacted.

Finally, it's time to start the search. We recommend www.peterboroughoday.co.uk/jobs as the best starting point for finding work in the Peterborough area. Good luck with the search!
