DWP to launch Universal Jobmatch

The Department for Work and Pensions is to launch a free online job posting and matching service, ‘Universal Jobmatch’, on 19 November 2012. The service will be available through the new gov.uk portal which will come into use on 17 October 2012.

Universal Jobmatch will replace the Jobcentre Plus jobs and skills search facility for jobseekers, and Employer Direct and Employer Direct Online for companies. The new technology will automatically match jobseekers’ CVs and skills to the jobs posted online.

For more information on Universal Jobmatch please see the Department for Work and Pensions website.
