We’re encouraging residents to use the ‘Myworksearch’ recruitment tool. It brings together vacancies from across the web and sends them directly to you. What’s more, those who use Universal Jobmatch as part of their Job Centre Plus requirements will find that both programmes interact, meaning you save time while meeting all your job-seeking obligations.
