Who provides the job vacancies?

Employers post job vacancies with Monster on behalf of Jobcentre Plus. The My World of Work Job Search uses the Monster database to search results.

How do I apply for a job?

Each job vacancy has information and contact details which shows the user where and how to apply.

Why are there few/no results for my search?

If you find there are no vacancies matching your search criteria try a broader search term (eg instead of ’care worker‘, try ’care‘) or widening the location search.
