How do employers fill their vacancies?

The answer is ...

... in lots of different ways

 Vacancies

45% of jobs are never advertised

Source: UKCES Employers' Perspective Survey

82% of employers use more than one way to advertise their vacancies - 91% use word of mouth, social media and their own website, and 69% use local press, careers services and Government services, such as the Jobcentre. Check notice boards and shop windows too. 

This means you need to use lots of ways to find a job

Ask family and friends if they know of any jobs going, get them to spread the word that you are looking for work, and don't forget to visit local employers and leave your CVAND search for jobs online - set up alerts to your inbox.
