This week The Careers Group released some excellent new features to JobOnline, its vacancies’ database packed with graduate jobs across more than 20 sectors. Updated daily, there are opportunities available across most skills, interests and degrees.
The improved homepage design means that students and graduates can easily access current jobs by industry type. Each industry is listed as a text-link which takes the visitor directly to jobs within that sector. The number of opportunities available for an industry-type is listed right next to the link. At the time of writing there are 342 roles within IT and Management, 277 opportunities within Finance and 127 within NGOs and Charities.
There is an advanced search facility which allows a student or graduate to personalise their search. For example, the combination of “education”, “graduate programme/scheme“ and “full-time” returned eight roles including trainee teachers at three different schools.
Current internships, temporary jobs and international jobs are now featured on the homepage.
Positioned under the “browse sector” box, each option is an image link which makes them stand out and attractive to click-on.
Students and graduates can also apply for all sorts of jobs managed by Recruitment Solutions at the University of London. The registration link is clearly listed on the right hand side of the page where they can also sign up for email jobalerts.
Graduate recruiters are invited to set up an account and start recruiting today in order to reach over 100,000 high-calibre students and graduates. They are also able to feature their job with a logo on the homepagein order to increase their visibility amongst page visitors.

You can choose between different sectors tailored to your interests, focus of study and experience. Varied new positions are advertised all the time – whether you are looking for a temporary or permanent job, full or part time. Vacancies are updated frequently ensuring any role you apply for is still open.
Not only have the number of vacancies published on JobOnline increased (vacancies in September 2012 were twice the number they were last year), a pool of highly reputable companies looking for new talent has also been established. The broader diversity of career opportunities has made JobOnline an outstanding gateway to the job you want.

More vacancies on JobOnline June 22, 2012Posted by The Careers Group News in : graduate, graduate jobs, graduate recruitment, job hunting, job vacancies, jobs, students, vacancies , add a comment
Despite the current job market JobOnline – the online jobs board from The Careers Group, University of London – has seen a tremendous increase in vacancies on its database.
Over the last month 1113 vacancies have been posted on JobOnline which is a 53% increase on the same month last year. The most notable increases have been in Science, Engineering, Arts and Marketing.
Ingrid Ross, Head of Communications and Vacancies, suggests this success may be down to the introduction of sector-related pushes where each month the team focuses on sourcing vacancies for a particular industry. For June the focus is on Life Sciences which has so far resulted in an increase of eight times the vacancies for Animal & Plant Resources, Materials Science – Manufacturing & Processing, and Scientific Services over the same period last year. Next month the team will be focusing on engineering.
JobOnline is a terrific resource for student and graduate job-seekers with daily updated vacancies for full-time, part-time, graduate programmes and internship opportunities. All of the jobs advertised adhere to strict guidelines ensuring they conform to National Minimum Wage legislation and provide equality of opportunity.

Flexible working has become a way of life in many companies and temporary staff are an integral part of many organisations across the UK. Growing support from legislation has made temporary work an increasingly attractive option with employers prepared to offer competitive rates of pay and benefits to secure the best employees.
More employers now look for temporary and contract help to cover peaks in business activity as well as to cover for holidays and sickness. Temporary help is the most buoyant sector of the employment market – in fact there is a real shortage of talent.
The University of London Temp Agency has access to hundreds of thousands of current students and recent graduates ready for work in a wide range of industries and occupations: from cleaning and catering assistants to scientific research and building websites.
The Temp Agency currently has a number of vacancies including:
- 6 x office workers (non) admin – full time hours based in Russell Square
- 1 x library receptionist – part time hours based in Russell Square
- HTML programmer – full time hours based in Russell Square
- 1 x receptionist – full time shift hours based in Camden
