Stay in the know

Creating a job alert is a great way to stay up to date with all of our current vacancies. Our job alerts can also be customised to your specific requirements – meaning they are always relevant to you. 

Where to start

Before you can create a job alert, you’ll need to set-up an account with our online recruitment system, Workday. You can do this here and it should take no longer than 5 minutes. 

Once you’ve set-up your account and logged in for the first time, you’ll notice a ‘Job Alert’ button at the top of your candidate home page. Here, you’ll be able to create and manage new and existing job alerts. 

How to create an effective job alert

When creating a new job alert, you’ll be given 6 different options to help make the positions you are notified about most relevant to you. They are: 

Name your Job Alert – You can name your job alert whatever you like! If you’re setting up more than one alert, you might want to consider how you can differentiate them at first glance by giving them different names. For example; ‘Supermarket Assistant – Waitrose’ or ‘Finance Manager – John Lewis Head Office’. 

Frequency – You can also choose how often you receive emails regarding vacancies that fall into your job alert requirements. Daily or weekly, it’s up to you. Bear in mind that some popular vacancies can close quickly, so by setting up job alerts weekly, you may miss out on some opportunities that you’re interested in applying for. 

Location – Select ‘United Kingdom’ and then narrow it down to any of our Partnership locations that you’d be willing to work in. You can select more than one location. 

Job Category – This will ensure you only hear about the jobs in the specific business areas you are interested in. For example, if you’re looking to join one of our shops, select ‘Customer Service’. If you’re more interested in our Distribution sites you would select ‘Supply Chain & Logistics’. There are also options for all of our Head Office positions. 

Job Family – Again, this will just help refine your job alerts one extra step. Scroll through the list to select the areas that you want to hear about. 

More than one? 

You can create multiple job alerts based on the different areas of the Partnership that you’re interested in knowing about. Remember to give each alert a custom name so you can keep track of them easily. 

What happens next?

After creating a job alert, we’ll then notify you via email about any new opportunities that open within your chosen requirements. We’ll include a link so that you can go straight through to the vacancy advert and apply.
