 Add and Update your Jobseekers Profile

How to add your Jobseekers Profile - The Grooms List


Your Jobseekers profile contains all the information we use to match you to your perfect job. The answers you give are searchable and allow us to find suitable candidates when we are recruiting for a specific job. It’s very important that the information in your Jobseekers profile is accurate, detailed, and up to date – especially your start date! Any information you leave out will slow your job applications down and may cause us to miss you out when we are matching candidates to job vacancies. When completing the preset fields, to quickly scan for the options you need simply start typing to trigger the option filter.

Start typing to filter preset options




Look out for multi-select options! You can easily select more than one at a time by holding the control key (command key on a Mac) as you select options. This keeps the options list open for you. On a mobile device these become check boxes for you to tap.

If there are any fields you don’t understand, or you’re not sure how to complete look out for guidelines – simply click or tap the little gold circles for advice!

When you register you will be taken to the Add Jobseekers Profile form automatically. If you haven’t added your Jobseekers Profile yet you can do so via the links shown below.

You can update your Jobseekers Profile as often as you like. When you update your Jobseekers Profile the website lets us know so we are aware that your requirements might have changed. If you find your profile is “pending” it’s because we are yet to review your updated information!

Set Up Your Very Own Job Alerts!

Control what jobs you are alerted to by setting up your very own job alerts! You can set up as many job alerts as you need, and edit or delete them whenever you like.

Top Tip for Job Alerts!
The Keyword searches the job title and description (e.g. Keyword = “BHSAI”). You can leave the Keyword blank so you receive notification of ALL jobs that match your other requirements.

To receive every new job that is added to The Grooms list add an alert title of your choice, select the location as Anywhere and leave the rest blank – it’s as easy as that!

Set up as many different job alerts as you like!




Search Jobs

It’s very easy to filter search results on The Grooms List. You can find the Search Jobs link under Jobseeker Central in the website menu. This will show you a list of all the jobs on the website. You can narrow these jobs down by your various requirements using the search filter on the right-hand side (if you are using a mobile device the search filter will be underneath the jobs list). We will be adding more filter options in the coming weeks, so we’ll let you know as soon as there is something new for you to try!
