Searching for a job online

Being made redundant, or just being told that it might happen, can be challenging. But there are plenty of online tools to help you find a new job.

Online job searches are generally free, available 24/7 and should be one of the first places you look for your next job opportunity.

Despite the disruption caused by the coronavirus outbreak, there are still lots of opportunities out there for jobseekers, especially in agriculture, food distribution and health and social care. Have a look at what’s available in your local area.

Use the Find a job (external website) service. With Find a job you can create a profile, upload your CV and receive email alerts about new and existing jobs.

There are plenty of other job sites available too. Try searching for ‘jobs’ in Google, or make your search more specific to find the right vacancies for you, like ‘retail jobs in Leeds’. Some of the websites which advertise jobs include:

If you have manufacturing, engineering or scientific skills, you could register with the Talent Retention Solution (external website.)

Some recruitment agencies specialise in certain types of work. Look online for your local ones on the Recruitment Employment Confederation website (external website.)
