Searching for Jobs 
The Adecco website has two job search functions available to users: The Quick Job Search and the Advanced Job Search. 

The Quick Search

The Quick Job Search is a fast and effective way of finding jobs. It is located in the top left-hand corner of the homepage. The Quick Job Search allows you to search by:

  • Sector
  • Location
  • Keywords
  • Or any combination of the above

Once you have entered all or any details you want to search on, click on the Search button to see jobs that match your criteria. You will be taken to a subsequent search results page where you can scroll through all the relevant jobs and view full job descriptions, apply for jobs or alter your search criteria using the search filters on the left hand side of the page.

The Advanced Job Search

The Advanced Job Search allows the user to select more in depth search criteria’s, resulting in narrower and more specific results. The Advanced Search allows you to search by:

  • Contract Type
  • Sector
  • Job Category within chosen sector
  • Region
  • Town/City
  • Keywords
  • Publication date
  • Or any combination of the above

Please note: selecting multiple criteria will narrow your search parameters and reduce the resulting number of jobs on the results page. If you find your search terms are not producing the required results, try refining your search by selecting the filters on the left hand side of the page.



Keywords are specific words, terms or phrases contained throughout the job descriptions and job titles. Searching using keywords allows you to be specific with your search. Keywords which match your search terms will result in a job description appearing on the results page.  

Keywords can be singular or may be combination of words. Common keywords are skill sets e.g. typing speed, JAVA. C++, qualifications e.g. Bachelors, Project Manager, job titles e.g., Nutritionist, Brand Manager
