To find the job you are looking for on CWJobs.co.uk you will need to carry out a search. We offer several ways of searching for a job, depending on what motivates you in your search.
Home page search
Located on the home page, this search allows you to select or specify the options that best describe what you are looking for. The most important fields are the keyword and location fields, see our help on these. Finally, click the 'Search' button and you will be shown the results for your search.
If you prefer to browse through our list of jobs you can do so. You can browse by location, or by job role. Simply click on the 'Browse jobs' link in the navigation and make your selection. If, for example, you choose to browse by location you are shown a list of broad UK regions to look in. When you make a selection you are shown all jobs within that location.
If you choose to browse by job role you are shown an extensive list of roles which you can navigate through alphabetically. Simply click on the letter of the alphabet that you want and you will be shown a list of all the job roles we have that start with that letter. Click on a job role and you are shown all jobs we have for that role.
The job results page lists all the jobs that matched your search criteria. The page has several functions available to the user:
Each job is displayed in a row on. This row displays the following information:
