Can I send my application to you?
jobs24.co.uk is not an employment agency in the traditional sense, so we do not accept CVs or job applications by post or email. The web site is set up for you to carry out searches, and allow recruiters to match you to their positions (via CVMatch). When you complete an application online, you are contacting the recruiter directly, in a format that they can accept and process easily.
What happens after applying?
You will receive an email from jobs24.co.uk confirming that your application has been sent. If you don't receive a confirmation email after applying you should check your e-mail address details are entered correctly on your registration page. If you are still unsure please check your spam filters on your email provider as they may be set to screen out unknown email addresses.
Why haven't I had a response to my application?
When you apply for a job advertised on jobs24.co.uk, you are effectively emailing the advertiser. jobs24.co.uk does encourage our advertisers to respond to all applications, but unfortunately this does not always happen. It can be a good idea to follow up your application with an email or phone call.
As jobs24.co.uk is not an employment agency, we do not take part in the selection process. For feedback on how your application is progressing you need to contact the advertiser direct.
Can foreign nationals apply for jobs in the UK via jobs24.co.uk?

How will registering on CV Match help me?
When you register and upload your CV, you are storing relevant information about you, in a format that a recruiter can search on using the tools we provide them. Registering and uploading your CV is not compulsory, but it is recommended. Recruiters can search our database to find jobseekers (you) that best match the positions they have. This way, you stand a chance of being offered a job that suits your skills, without having to look for it.
I just want to apply online, do I have to register?
You do not have to register before applying.
How do recruiters use my CV?
Your CV is stored in our candidate database, and its use is controlled by you. Recruiters specify the type of candidate they are looking for, and then search the database for matches. You will only be included in the search if you have made your CV available to be searched. When recruiters find a match, they can contact the candidate. Your CV will remain completely anonymous until you choose to release your personal details at the employer's request.
How do I upload my CV?
You can upload your CV by clicking on 'Upload CV' tab at the top of the page under the 'jobs24' logo. If you are a new user, follow the prompts to create a new account. If you are an existing user, log in. From the 'Upload CV' page you should then follow the simple to use instructions.
Your CV must be a MS Word (*.doc), MS Word 2007 (*.docx), Rich Text Format (*.rtf) or Acrobat (*.pdf) file and should be no larger than 200k. However, in order for your CV to be viewed by most recruiters, we do not recommend MS Word 2007 (*.docx) files. Please make sure your document is not password protected. When you originally create your document, click 'file', then 'save as', and select one of the above file types.
Problems uploading a CV for a job application
If you have problems uploading a CV when you want to apply for a job, you can paste the text into the cover letter field alongside any message to the recruiter.
How can I stop my current employer from seeing my details?
Your CV will always remain confidential (your contact details and names of companies you have worked for) unless you apply for a position or agree to release your personal details to a recruiter. When you enter your CV you will also be asked if you want to make your personal details "visible" to companies searching the CV database. If you choose not to, your CV can still be searched, but recruiters will need to contact you (you will be anonymous via email) to ask you to release your personal info.
jobs24.co.uk has three levels of privacy for the Jobseeker. Using the visibility options, you can choose to:
1. Make all your information searchable. This includes your name, contact details and CV.
2. Make only your experience profile, and non-personal information searchable, this does not include your name, contact details or your CV. Recruiters are only able to contact you through us. You only have to reveal your identity when you reply to the recruiter.
3. Make all of your information private. Your details become hidden and are no longer visible to recruiters. You are still able to view it via your 'My jobs24' account and can choose to make it viewable again at a later date
