How to apply for a job on Patchwork Hub
To apply for jobs on Patchwork Hub, first navigate to our homepage.
There are three main ways you can search for jobs. From our homepage, you’ll find two boxes labelled Job Title or Keywords and Select Location. In the Job Title or Keywords box, you can enter the type of job you’re looking for. To find a job in a specific place, you can enter your desired location in the Select Location box.
If you simply wish to see all the jobs we have on our platform without looking for anything specifically, click the Search button without including anything in the Job Title or Keywords and Select Location boxes.
There is also a Browse Jobs button in the header when viewing the site in full screen on a desktop.
If your search results reveal a job you are interested in, click on the job title to view further details.
If you decide you would like to apply, click Apply Now. However, if you’re not quite ready to get started, you can bookmark the job to come back to by clicking Save this Job on the right, under More Info. Please note that you will need to be a registered Patchworker in order to save jobs. If you have a Patchwork Hub account, you can view your saved jobs in your Candidate Dashboard.
When you have clicked Apply Now, a window will appear asking you to answer a series of questions.
If you have a disability or long-term health condition and need extra support or adjustments in your application, please check the relevant box.
The Message box is your opportunity to tell the employer why you are suitable for this position. See Tips for writing your cover letter for top tips on making your cover letter/message stand out.
