What are job boards?
Job boards are online platforms where job seekers go to…you guessed it: find jobs! Job sites contain vacancies from companies and recruitment agencies UK wide and are the most popular way for people to find new career opportunities. With the help of a job board, you can search for jobs in a particular location, salary range or industry to find your dream role.
Top 4 UK job boards
We’ve put together a list of our favourite UK job boards to help you crush your career goals!
Indeed is one of the UK’s most popular job boards, with millions of users worldwide. They have a wide range of vacancies from hospitality to accountancy to senior level positions all across the UK and beyond.
It’s completely free to set up an account with Indeed, and you have the ability to use their advanced search function to find the perfect role. You can filter roles by industry, salary, location and even education level. Indeed also has a review function, allowing you to do some detective work on companies you’re interested in.
Founded in 2000, CV Library has been around for a few more years than Indeed. It’s a popular choice among candidates, with 50% of surveyed job hunters saying they received more job offers from CV Library than other job boards.
Not only will you find a wide array of jobs on this site, but CV Library also has an entire section dedicated to discounted courses that will improve your CV from HR to finance to computing. On CV Library, you can also create up to 20 job alerts.
Totaljobs has over 280,000 live vacancies on their website. Although they offer a wide span of vacancies, they also pride themselves on advertising more specialist and niche positions too.
In addition to having a dedicated course section and an impressive library of career-related articles, they also have a ‘Companies hiring’ section. In this section, you can search by industry to find all the companies advertising roles at that time.
