How do I select the correct location?
All vacancies published on Jobsite must contain a location listed in our gazetteer directory. This contains the towns, cities, counties and regions of the UK. If a location is missing, please contact your Account Manager to have it added.
When a candidate searches for job they can choose whether to view vacancies containing an exact match of the searched location or they can request to also view vacancies that fall within a 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 or 50 mile radius.
The gazetteer directory understands the distances between different locations and will display your vacancy should it match the search criteria.
For example, if the job was in Reading. You could enter the location as 'Reading, United Kingdom'. We will expand the location 'behind-the-scenes' to be Reading, Berkshire, South England, UK, Europe. This would enable any of the following to find the vacancy:
Anybody searching for work in Reading
People looking for work in Berkshire
People searching for work in South England
People searching for work within 15 miles of Fleet
People searching for work within 10 miles of Wokingham.
