1. What are you looking for? 

Firstly, it may sound silly, but I'm going to assume you know what you are looking for! OK, maybe that’s not so silly, but think about the job title that you want. For example, Sales Manager, or Clinical Research Associate. Also consider the location(s) that you are interested in. You are going to enter this into the our search engine so. I would initially start with purely free text searching; for example enter "Sales Manager Oncology, London."

2. Your CV

You will also need a good CV. There are plenty of CV books available and lots of companies online who offer a CV service.

3. Covering letter

When you apply for a job (however you do it) you need a covering letter, and a good one can make the difference between your CV being looked at or not. Again, there are numerous books out there, but I suggest looking here first.

4. Start to Search

Once you have your CV and covering letter honed to perfection, then you can start your search.

Start your search here: as this gives you a page where you can initially change your search location, your disciplines (job areas you are looking at), plus select full time / part time and salary bands etc. You can also simply use free text or basic boolean searches

5. Refine your Results 

If you get too many results, you can use the filtering bar on the left to make your refinements.

6. View The Jobs

To find out more about any role that looks good in the results, simply click on the "More details" or the job title link, and you will get the page that gives full information about this role. You can step through each page in you results using the "Next" or "Previous" options.

7. Save Your Search 

If you think the search results are great, and that you want to be notified of new matching jobs automatically each day, simply add your email address to the box provided!

8. Apply Now

If you see the job of your dreams and you are appropriately qualified, click on the "Apply" button. Alternatively you can save this job as a favourite by clicking on the star (but you'll need to be logged in for this to work) - or email it to yourself to complete the application process later on. Note that some jobs will take you off-site to the advertiser's website to complete your application.

9. The Application Process

Next you will be taken through the simple application process. If you're already registered, just login, if you're not, all you have to do is add name and email details, and include your CV and your "covering letter" .

Good luck!!
