The environmentalist's new recruitment pages have been launched
IEMA’s new jobs site went live on 13 April and features a number of enhanced facilities that make searching for a job easier, quicker and more dynamic.
The site allows visitors to search by sector, region, length of contract, company, salary band or by keywords in a more advanced way than ever before.
IEMA’s previous jobs site was one of the largest in terms of the number of job listings, and the new site, which sits alongside the recently launched environmentalistonline.com, includes a CV upload service and “Apply Now” button for each job.
Both of these new facilities let IEMA members and other environment professionals speed up their application process and let employers find them.
Those who wish to have jobs delivered to their inbox each week can register and ask to be notified of any suitable vacancies as they are posted on the site. Users can also save their job searches for future reference.
As the employment market is possibly at its most competitive ever, members are encouraged to visit the site to explore the options to ensure they find a role which reflects their knowledge, skills and talent. Visit the site at www.iemajobs.net/.
