Keyword Search Help

The keyword search searches every text field (for example location, job title, job description, company name etc.) using a form of boolean searching where results will be returned which contain all of the words entered ('AND' search). This would be similar to putting a plus (+) sign in front of all the words in the search term in some other sites' searches (e.g. Google).

There is no need to enter a comma or other separator between keywords - just use a space. Quotation marks ("") can be used around multiple words to mean search for that phrase rather than any of the individual words. Putting quotation marks around individual words will make the search return results containing any of the words in quotes rather than all the words having to be found. Minus (-) signs can also be used to mean a particular word must not be found.

Here are some brief search examples:

sales manager : finds jobs matching "sales" and "manager"

"sales manager" : find jobs matching the phrase "sales manager"

"sales" "manager" : finds jobs matching "sales" and "manager"

manager -sales : finds jobs matching "manager" but do not contain the word "sales"

+sales +manager : finds jobs matching "sales" AND "manager"

'Stemming' is also used, meaning that derivatives of a word will also be found, for example engineer will also find engineers and engineering
