Job Alerts

New job adverts are being published on Devonjobs all the time.

At the top of the results page you will have the option to 'Get email alerts'. We will email you details of matching vacancies each evening whenever they are advertised on the site. You can save up to 5 different searches and manage these via your dashboard.

We can also notify you via RSS when new suitable vacancies become available if you would prefer.

Bookmarked Jobs

If you find a vacancy you are interested in, or you want to come back and look at particular vacancies again later, you can store them in your Bookmarkes Jobs.

My Applications

Once you have found a job you want to apply for, you can fill in your application online. You can save your application details at any time to come back to later.

Before starting an application we recommend updating your details in your personal profile.  Here you can add your Employment and Education history, along with details of any Professional Memberships you might have.

The details in these fields will automatically populate a new application form, saving you time in completing the form.

Data Protection

12 months after the vacancy closing date your application form is deleted from the Devonjobs database.  If you wish to keep a copy for future use we advise saving it as a PDF to your personal computer/device.  This is in keeping with governmental guidance on Record Retention.
