Keywords help you find exactly what you're looking for.
How to use keyword search
- Enter the terms of your search in the Keywords field, for example the job title barista or kitchen hand/cook (without quotes).
- In addition to job title, you can include things like skill(s) and seniority (junior, senior, etc.) to make your search more targeted, for example junior barista or senior java developer oracle.
- To refine further, you can use the filters such as Classification, Location and Salary.
- You can choose multiple classifications and locations by using advanced search.
How search behaves
Job Search will always find a minimum of two words in a search query. For example, if your search query is HR and facilities administrator then Job Search will look for at least two matching words – i.e. jobs containing either 'HR administrator' or 'facilities administrator' (the 'and' in the query is ignored).
You can alter this default behaviour using Boolean logic – see Search Techniques below for examples.
You can use Boolean logic to tailor your search query by using words like OR, NOT and brackets ().
- Use OR between each word if you want to search for individual words
- sales OR management (finds all jobs with 'sales' and all jobs with 'management' in the description)
- Use NOT to exclude certain words
- sales NOT management (finds only the jobs which have 'sales' in the description and not ones with just 'management')
- Use AND to broaden your search criteria
- sales AND management (finds only the jobs which have both 'sales' and 'management' in the job ad)
- Use a combination of techniques by using brackets
- management NOT (sales OR account) (finds all 'management' jobs but not with 'sales' or 'account')
- Use double quotation marks to search for a specific phrase (for example "search term")
- "sales management" (finds jobs only with this specific phrase 'sales management')
Things to know about Keyword Search:
- It is not case sensitive
- It automatically ignores common words such as the, an, also
- It ignores special characters like %, /
- It interprets all spaces, commas, dashes and asterisks as AND
- It recognises common phrases regardless of the spelling such as part time, part-time, parttime
- By default, results are sorted by keyword match, so the results most relevant to your search criteria appear at the top.
- To get the freshest results, sort by date – the most recently listed jobs will appear at the top.
- Jobs that contain all of your search terms will generally appear above those which match on fewer terms.
- If you don't get many results, try removing filters to widen your search
