Please NoteThe Company Jobs Direct portal is not like a traditional Job board. Many of the job roles displayed are compiled by robotic software algorithms and not human beings. Our algorithms scan the careers websites of over 250,000 organisations and detect job titles and descriptions on the careers web sites of organisations and bring them into our vacancy board.  Our philosophy is to try and widen the scope of jobs information available to Job Seekers, who are often constrained by anonymous ads on traditional job boards from knowing who the employer is. Our algorithms can sometimes get it wrong and you should always visit the employers website link for the latest careers information.
