Universal Jobmatch

13 Jan

Looking for a new job can be hard work.  There are more and more applicants going for each vacancy that’s advertised, and with businesses closing down or downsizing and making redundancies, there are simply less jobs to go round in many areas.

Universal Jobmatch is open to all jobseekers, whether they receive benefits or not.  You can register and upload your CV so that employers can find you.  Universal Jobmatch will save your searches, suggest suitable vacancies for you, and help you to keep track of what you have applied for.  When you see a vacancy that you want to apply for, it’s easy to apply instantly by sending your CV to the employer through Universal Jobmatch.  If you need any support in creating a Government Gateway account or using this service, please call us on 0800 043 2440.

If you need support using ICT, check out Learn My Way, and use our Centre Code: 3453449.
