How to: Use the reed.co.uk app
Introducing: the new reed.co.uk app.
If you’re looking for a quick and efficient way to search for jobs on-the-go, you’re in luck. The latest version of our mobile app brings all the right roles directly to your fingertips – with a better user experience than ever before.
To make sure you’re getting the most out of the new and improved reed.co.uk app, here are a few of our top tips:
After you’ve downloaded the app, you can either sign into your account or search for relevant jobs before you sign up.
Not signed up yet? No problem. Registration is quick and simple and should only take a few minutes to complete. You’ll then be able to start making applications.
If you already have an account, all of your details will be synced with the app – and you won’t have to re-upload your CV or cover letter.
Suitable jobs will pop up immediately, based on the search criteria you inputted when you registered.
Adding your CV
Adding your CV to your account via the app is simple.
By viewing your profile, you’ll be able to upload a new CV if necessary – whether it’s via Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive, or directly from your phone.
Alternatively, you can edit your information using the desktop or mobile site – and your changes will immediately sync with the app.
And don’t worry if you don’t have a CV to upload. Our CV builder will help you to create and save one in four easy steps, no matter what device you’re on. As soon as you save your finished CV to your account, you’ll be able to start using it on the app.
Searching and applying for jobs
As soon as you’ve downloaded the app, you can start searching.
After creating a search, you’ll be shown a number of relevant job matches. Then, you’ll be given the option to swipe right (shortlist the job), swipe left (discard the job), or apply there and then by clicking on the vacancy and tapping ‘apply now’.
Every job you’ve shortlisted, discarded or applied for are automatically saved in ‘my jobs’. This allows you to go back to your shortlisted jobs at any time to complete your applications, view your applied jobs and take another look at your discarded jobs.
And, if you change your mind about a job you’ve vetoed – don’t panic. It’s just as easy to move them to your shortlist later on.
Tailoring your job search is absolutely essential if you want to get the best results. That’s where filters come in.
You can choose to filter by location and date posted, as well as job type – such as part-time, full-time or working from home jobs. Other filters include salary range, specialism and whether or not the job is suitable for graduates.
Filters will help you find the roles you really want – without having to scroll through dozens of irrelevant jobs to get there.
Customise your search with light and dark modes
Filters aren’t the only way you can personalise your search.
With our new light and dark modes, you’ll have the ability to use the app in whichever light you’re most comfortable with. You’ll also be able to toggle between the two at any time, to help further enhance your experience.
So you’ll never have to worry about straining your eyes while you scroll through your latest search results.
Setting up job alerts
Great opportunities can come and go pretty fast.
This means that keeping up with new vacancies as and when they’re posted is essential to beating the competition.
The good news is, our app provides the perfect way to do this. By giving the option to receive push notifications when new jobs in your industry and location come up – you can be sure you’ll be the first to apply. Every single time.
Just tap ‘allow notifications’ after downloading the app, or edit your notification options in your device’s settings to start receiving job alerts straight away.
Check back daily
The reed.co.uk app is a great way to stay connected to the latest jobs – wherever you are.
And, with over 5,000 jobs added daily, browsing through new vacancies as often as possible is the best way to be the first to apply and to stay ahead in your job search.
Whether you scroll through them on the way to work, or you open the app for five minutes on your lunch break – it doesn’t have to take hours to stay in-the-loop.
All you need is your phone, a wifi connection, and the reed.co.uk app.
