Following my last postabout jobs with FTSE100 Companies, I think it is time to update it and add more entries, as most have their own career sites now.
Interestingly, a number of people have used the original post and added each link to their Favourites on Internet Explorer, so they can now regularly check the websites for new job listings, so I am glad it has been of use to some. I have now added the next 30 largest companies (by turnover) who are listed on the FTSE100 Index, and this will interest anyone who is keen to work in a UK blue-chip company, the majority of whom have highly recognisable global brands.
All of them use a variety of techniques to source people for their various positions. Whilst many will operate PSLs (Preferred Supplier Listings) with both generalist and specialist recruitment agencies, many also use a direct recruitment model. This is where they employ in-house recruiters (usually with an agency background), who are tasked with filling every role the company has – temporary, contract, permanent and whether UK or Internationally based.
Having reviewed all 80 companies, many of them now have an added facility where you can search roles on their website by specific job category, geographical location and job type. As I have mentioned before, I don’t believe you will get the same responsiveness or service that you would from a good relationship-driven recruitment agency, or as diverse a choice of jobs (you are only looking at one company after all), but you should use these sites as part of a well planned job search. If you are looking for your next role in an International FTSE-listed corporate business, then this list is one of the best places to start your job hunting !
