How to use this website

This website enables you to apply for jobs online, receive email or mobile communications about a job, and enables us to contact you if there is a job you might be interested in applying for based on the information in your talent profile.
This section of the website outlines how to use the main functions:

My Account
Once you have registered, your personal account, called ‘My Account’, will be created. The ‘My Account’ area is a secure, password-protected area where you can store information such as your contact details; job alerts; saved searches; job basket; part-completed, completed or submitted job applications and your talent profile. Your email correspondence from the council will also be stored in this area for future reference.
Completing the ‘My Details’ and ‘My Talent Profile’ areas in ‘My Account’ will help you to apply for jobs by automatically filling in your details in the application form. This makes the application process easier.

Email job alerts
You can sign up to receive job alerts by email about the latest vacancies that match your criteria.
To receive job alerts, run a quick search or an advanced search. On the search results page you have the option to ‘Add to Job Alerts’.
This will add the search to your job alerts list.
To change the type of jobs you are alerted to, click on ‘My Job Alerts’. You can then change your preferences in the following categories:

Job Category – for more information about job categories see the ‘Job Categories’ page
Contract type
Working hours
Only alerts for jobs that match your preferences will be sent to you.

To unsubscribe, login to your personal account, select the ‘My Job Alerts’ page, and click ‘Delete’.

Job Search
There is several types of search to help find the right vacancy for you.
They are:
1. View all Jobs – this will display all of the current vacancies on the site

2. Advanced Job Search – search against any, or all, of the following criteria:

Job Category – type of job you are interested in (e.g. Admin, ICT, Housing etc)
Salary – the salary range you are looking for
Contract Type – Permanent, Fixed-term, Temporary etc
Working hours – full-time, term-time or part-time options

3. Browse Jobs – quickly browse through available jobs without having to run a quick search or an advanced search. Click on the panel on the homepage, click on any of the tabs to choose the type of job you wish to search by, then click on one of the job types listed to view the list of matching jobs. The number displayed in brackets next to the job type indicates the number of jobs available.

After you have completed a job search, the system will display a list of the vacancies that meet your preferences.
This includes:

 For more detailed information about the job click ‘More Details’.

You can click ‘Add to job basket’ to save the information into your ‘My Account’ to view later.
You can also add the job to ‘My Job Alerts’, and add the search to your ‘Saved Searches’. Adding it to your ‘Saved Searches’ will allow you to quickly run advanced searches with your preferences already completed.

The search results also list the criteria you used. You can remove items to broaden the search results by clicking on the cross, or click on ‘Revise your search’ to go back and change your original criteria, then re-run the search.

Applying for a job 

Selecting a particular vacancy from your search will bring up full details relating to that post. Job descriptions, person specifications and other attached documents are shown below the job summary. You have the option to ‘Apply for this job’, ‘Add to job basket’ (which will place the details in your ‘My Account’ section) or ‘Send to a friend’.
When you select ‘Apply for this job’ you will be either taken to the organisations jobs page or taken to the online application form. If you need a paper copy of the application form, contact the recruitment team at the employer advertising the vacancy.

Account Deletion

If you no longer wish to use the site you may delete your account by logging in and navigating to the 'My Details' section.  There you will see a button marked 'Delete Account'. 
Clicking this button will begin the deletion procedure.
Once completed you will no longer be able to access your account and there is NO option of re-instating it.
The process will delete all identifiable information relating to your account.  If you submitted an application through the site, some non-identifiable or attributable, data is retained to allow organisation to carry out anonymous reporting of effectiveness of recruitment practices and to maintain the correct running of the site.
