SEARCHING FOR A JOB?

Can careerbuilder.co.uk help you find a job?

Although https://www.careerbuilder.co.uk is not a recruitment agency and cannot help individual users look for a job, we will provide answers to many frequently asked questions, which will help you in your job search: how to search for a job, how to apply, how to post your CV and how to create a Job Alerts. 

Do I need to register to look for a job? 

You don`t need to be registered to search for a job. However you do need to be registered to apply for a job and submit your CV via the website. Registering with jobmedic.co.uk is free and easy! 

How can I verify the recruitment process? 

https://www.careerbuilder.co.uk/ is not directly involved in the recruitment process. Once you submitted your CV, we would suggest clicking on the company logo and accessing the company profile. From this page, you can access the company website by clicking on “Website” and you will be able to contact the employer directly to make enquiries about the recruitment process. Additionally, you can research the company via Google for further contact details. 

How can I apply for a job from outside the UK? 

With jobmedic.co.uk, you can look for work in the healthcare industry in the United Kingdom. You can register on the website but for every employer it will be necessary to have the right to work in the UK. If you are unsure of the requirements, we recommend contacting the employer to verify the requirements (please check the section “How can I find information about the employer”). We cannot provide you with any information about the requirements, as these differ from employer to employer. If you are based in another country, outside of the EU, we would suggest checking the UK Government website at the following address https://www.gov.uk/apply-uk-visa to verify which visa you would need. 

How can find information about the employer? 

Once you have run a search and you are on the listing page please click on the logo of the company that is next to the advert you are interested in. 

You will be redirect to the Company profile page where you will find an overview of the employer. 

If the employer provided a website, you will find this under the Company name. By clicking on this link, you will be redirected to the website of the employer or the recruitment company. Here you will find the contact details that allow you to contact the company directly to ask for information about the advert or the recruitment process.

JOB ALERTS 

What is a job Alert? 

Setting up a job Alert is useful to save you time. Our Job Alert will automatically email you jobs based on the criteria of your saved search. 

How do I create a Job Alert? 

Run a search from the homepage by selecting all the criteria you would like to base your search on (radius, job type, etc.…) and clicking on search. Once you have run the search and you are happy with the results, click on “email me jobs like these”. You will then receive similar jobs by email. 

You will receive an alert with jobs that match your criteria every day. If you would like to change the frequency or manage the Job Alerts please check “How do I edit / delete my Job Alert”. 

How do I editdelete my Job Alert? 

Click on your name in the top right hand corner to open the menu.  

Click on My job Alert. You will be redirected to the page from where you can manage the job alerts. 

Once here you can edit or delete your job alert. 

Edit the job alert:  you can change the Job Alert Name, the frequency of the emails, and also the Search details. 

Delete the job alert: by clicking on the “bin” icon you will be able to completely delete the Job Alert.  

How do I save jobs? 

Run a search.  

Click on the “Save this job” button that is shown on the job list or at the top of the advert. 

This will allow you to save time and some jobs to review them later. 

To review your saved jobs click on your name in the top right hand corner to open the menu and select “My saved jobs”. 

You will be redirected to the page where you can see the saved jobs, select a job and apply using the “Apply button” inside the advert. You also have the option to remove the jobs from your list. 

Why does my Job Alert send me jobs that are unrelated to what I am looking for? 

 This can happen when your Job Alerts do not currently have any search criteria specified in the keyword section, as this would cause the computer to send you all jobs found, regardless of the Job Sector or Location. Thus, to get the optimal results for your Job Alerts, please make edits to the keywords and other search criteria. 

You can use any mix of upper and lower case characters; the keyword field isn’t case sensitive. To search for an exact phrase, keywords must have quotation marks around the phrase e.g. “Registered General Nurse”. You can also search for abbreviations e.g. “RGN” or for a generic “Nurse”.  

The more specific you are the better will the results match with your desired position.
