The search is easy to use, even if you don't have a lot of experience using the internet.

To use the search box type in what you are looking for and where by giving the name of the town or city. You can also use the postcode of the area.  For example, 'I want a job as a mechanic in Leeds' or 'I want childcare in S10 2SL'.

For job vacancies that include employer contact details and how to apply, you don't need to speak to a member of Jobcentre Plus staff. You can apply directly to the employer yourself.
