The UKs 50 Largest Company Career Sites

The UKs 50 Largest Company Career Sites

As a continuation of my post two months ago, a number of people have asked me if there are other large corporates with career pages they could look at.  Last time round, I gave links to the Top 30 UK companies (by size), to try and help those who wanted a role in a UK blue-chip company that was also a highly recognisable brand.


As I mentioned in that same post, these global giants use a variety of techniques to source candidates. Whilst many are likely to operate PSLs (Preferred Supplier Listings) with both generalist and specialist recruitment agencies, many also use a Direct Recruitment Model (DRM). This is where they employ In-house recruiters, usually with an agency background in a specialist field, who are tasked with filling every role the company has, whether easy or hard to fill, temporary or permanent, and UK-based or International.


By using the careers link on their main website, you can search on roles by specific job category, geographical location and job type. I don’t believe you will get the same responsiveness or service that you would from a good relationship-driven recruitment agency, or a large choice of jobs (you are only looking at one company site after all), but it would be a shame not to use such sites if you are looking for your next role in an International corporate business


I have listed below direct links to the Top 50 companies here in the UK by turnover, and the link will take you direct to their career / job page where you can search at your leisure for open job vacancies. If you apply online, you should hopefully get an automated response thanking you for your application.  If you can, I would also recommend you take a note of the contact name attached to the job posting, and contact them if you have not heard anything in say 10 working days, as you will need to know where you stand with your application.


Good luck with it, and do let me know how you get on.
