What is an RSS feed?
RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”. It’s an easy way to receive an instant list of updates that are of interest to you, without needing to constantly return to various websites. It’s always presented in a list format, with the newest information at the top, making it easy to read and keeping you as up-to-date as possible.
What problem does RSS solve?
Most people are interested in various websites whose content is constantly changing, such as news sites, community pages, medical websites, blogs and job boards. Repeatedly checking each of these sites for new information can become tedious and boring.
Email notification of changes was an early solution to this problem, however these can quickly become overwhelming, are usually disorganised and often mistaken for spam. Also, emails are usually sent to you once daily, whereas an RSS feed is updated instantly.
RSS is a much better way to be notified of new and changed content to your favourite sites because you can choose when to check, quickly, easily and discreetly.
How does RSS work?
When you’ve selected the job search you’d like to be notified about, we keep an update (specific to you) linked to our website. This means that each time we add a new role meeting your specific criteria you’re notified instantly. This saves you from having to keep coming back to our website and carrying out the same search several times a day.
With an “RSS”, you can check your list at any time, simply by clicking on the button with this symbol [image] This is the universal symbol for websites that use RSS feeds to keep in touch with their users. Next, you need to choose where to save your RSS feed, (in your toolbar under the url or in your bookmarks).
Now, simply subscribe to our RSS feed by pressing the “subscribe” button and your search is now saved in your chosen location, meaning that you can check it any time you wish. To view a particular role, simply click on it and you’ll be taken to the page where you can see the full role in more detail and apply.
