Are you looking for a new career or just exploring job possibilities in the local area? There are some excellent opportunities currently available in a variety of fields.

If you're sick and tired of the big job sites, where you're up against thousands of people for one role, you'll be happy to know that our jobs section is different - if you can remember the old days of opening a newspaper, armed with a red pen, you're on the right track. All the jobs listed in our recruitment section are from local employers and you can find all sorts of roles - from solicitors to teachers, customer service roles and warehouse operatives.

And unlike some of the huge online job marketplaces, ours is catered to your geographic location. While we may only have a couple of hundred jobs (rather than the millions of jobs promoted by the big sites) the jobs are all real work opportunities, right here on your doorstep. What you lose in quantity you absolutely gain in quality.

Read on to discover more about these roles and how you can apply.
