4 top tips for finding jobs

Find the best job leads without even leaving the sofa!

  • Look at job boards

    Refine your search by searching locally, for postings that include "key worker", or similar job titles. To make your search easier, sign up for email alerts.

  • Check out news websites

    You might not be getting a physical paper, but most papers have websites with a Jobs section that you can browse.

  • Use social media

    Check out hashtags like #hiring and #jobs, and see what potential employers are saying. You can also share your search, so people know you’re looking and can pass on news of opportunities.

  • Ask family and friends to keep an eye out

    Most of us are chatting to family and friends more often right now. Let yours know that you're looking, and ask them to pass the word on to their own friends.

Tips on building your CV - even without hands-on experience

  • Take a look at some CV examples

    See what employers expect, and think about the experience and skills you have that match.

    If you're applying for a new job that you haven't done before, think about how the experience and skills you have, relate to the job you want. For example, if you've been a waitress, your customer service and people skills would be just as valuable in a supermarket or while doing deliveries.

Tips for a successful online interview


Test the technology and your internet connection! Make sure you’ve downloaded any new software and tried it out before your call.


Tidy up and prepare the space you’ll be interviewing in. Employers will understand if it’s a bit noisier or messier than they’d expect, but try to have your interview in a clean, quiet space if you can.


Ask the people you’re isolating with to do a practice interview with you. Get them to help you prepare a few questions you want to ask the employer as well.

Dress well

Wear something appropriate for the job you want. Looking clean and tidy gives employers confidence in you.

Be on time

Being late for your interview makes employers think you might be late to work, too. Set yourself up so you're ready for the interview 10 minutes early, and you won't be late.

Be patient

The internet might be slow, the employer is running late, or technology may not cooperate. Show you can deal with pressure by being patient and calm.

Be genuine and honest

More than ever, employers want people they can trust. Put your best foot forward by being genuine and honest.

Follow up

You have the time, so send a short email to thank the employer for their time and confirm your interest after the interview.
