The Job Alerts are sent from our automated programme which looks at the information you have inserted and filters through jobs which are posted onto the site thereafter, matching them to the keywords you entered when you created the alert. Please note that the programme will not be able to interpret your requirements by providing you with jobs which are related to the information you have entered. You will need to ensure you enter exactly what it is that you want. You can create as many alerts as you like.

Advice for setting up successful Job Alerts:

Successful search strings can often be a result of a trial and error process, so have a play around and see what works best for you.

  • Use speech marks around specific job titles, such as “Rig Mover”, “Rig Manager” or “Directional Driller”. This will ensure the programme will be specific when searching for these job titles, viewing them as phrases and not two individual words.
  • Avoid using words like ‘worldwide’ or ‘anywhere’ in the location box, this does not specify a location and will not be recognized by our system.
  • Avoid relying on punctuation such as – (dash) or / (slash), some types of punctuation are not understood by the system and may be ignored.

Why does it say my application is ‘made on recruiter’s website’?

Some recruiters prefer the applications to be done through their own website, using their application forms. When it says ‘Application made on recruiter’s website’, this means that you have clicked on the link to the recruiters site, where the application process takes place.
