So a new job may be on the cards and you’ve decided to take a look at what’s out there – only, there’s so many websites to plough through you're not quite sure where to start! 

Some candidates find the number of job advertising outlets simply overwhelming and have struggled to keep up with the sea of positions that flood in. If this sounds a little bit like you – don’t panic! We’ve got some advice that might just simplify the process and make it even easier for you to find the ideal job.

Be selective in the sites that you use

It’s simply not practical to check every single job board on a daily basis due to the sheer volume of search results. Stick to the ones you feel comfortable with, whether it’s Reed or Indeed, and if you’re not sure which you prefer, have a little snoop and see which sites appear to list more relevant job postings that match your criteria.

Contact a recruitment specialist

If you’re 100% sure of the industry you want to work in, the easiest thing to do is to find a recruiter that represents businesses exactly like the one you’d like to join. Get in touch with them and let them know what it is you’re looking for – you never know, they may be looking for someone with your skillset right now!

Sign up to alerts

We encourage our candidates to sign up to alerts via our website so that we can contact them whenever a suitable position crops up. Not only does this take the job search pressure off, it also means you’d be one of the first people to know as soon as that job becomes available.

Follow your recruiter on social media

Following your chosen specialist recruiter on social media sites like LinkedIn and Twitter will mean that any newly available positions will appear in your news feed. You’ll even be able to check their pages on a regular basis to see what jobs they’re advertising for and whether or not they’re for you.

If you’re thinking that a new job may be on the horizon and you’re interested in the financial services industry in particular, we’d be happy to help and relieve the pressure. Sign up to our job alerts via our login page – you never know, that new position might just be closer than you think!
