The service will offer a fast, simple experience and powerful search using Adzuna’s technology, matching jobseekers to employers’ available roles quickly and effectively. The new service will be rolled out across the country this summer.
A Simpler, More Modern Way of Jobseeking
The tool will continue to provide jobseekers with the ability to search for work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Jobseekers will be able to create an account to which they can upload CVs, create relevant email alerts and view their previous account activity.
