Totaljobs is one of the leading job websites in the UK. We publish thousands of new job ads every day from employers and employment agencies.
The companies advertising on totaljobs are a mix of big company names like Tesco, Vodafone, and the Armed Forces, through to local, small independent businesses from every corner of the UK.
So how does it work?
Well, we're a bit like a marketplace. Employers advertise their jobs on our site and people like you come to the site to search for suitable jobs.
In the middle we’ve got a bunch of tools and techniques to help match up you, the jobseekers, to the right kind of jobs – things like our jobs by email alerts, and instant job match.
We’ve also got some great search technology that powers the site, so we can match the keywords you enter to the most relevant job ads.
How many job ads are relevant to me?
The site is changing all the time with new jobs added every day, so it's important to check back regularly or set up a jobs by email alert so we can send you links to new relevant job ads as they come on to the site.
The number of live job ads we have at any one time varies from day to day - even hour to hour - and might be higher or lower than the number of actual vacancies for a couple of reasons.
First of all, some jobs are advertised by more than one employment agency, so you might see two or more ads for the same job. Or they might post an ad several times with a different location on each, to attract a wide range of candidates. On the other hand, one job ad might be advertising several roles. For example, there might be a large company looking for several ‘branch managers’ to manage a series of new shops they’re about to open.
Finding the best job ads
The quick search on our home page is the fastest way of finding the job ads we currently have that best match what you’re looking for. But you can also browse jobs by location or skill if you’d like to take a wider view of the range of job ads we have. Or dive in to our Companies A-Z directory to find the job ads we have from a particular employer.
