I live in Crieff in Scotland and I have registered for a year with 'Fish for jobs'.My settings say I am happy to travel 15 miles to work and this will allow me to work in a local city of Perth and I have activated my job alerts with this setting, I am an experienced farmer/stockman and horticulturist with upto 20 years working knowledge and what alerts do I get.......Woking in Surrey (400 miles away)....Dorking (450 miles)......Cornwall (500+ miles). This is a computer generated response... (read more)

After searching for jobs on this site, you'll see a short description for each job in the search results, and you'd expect more detailed information upon clicking on each entry. But there's almost nothing. The short 'blurb' in the results is suddenly nowhere to be seen(!), meaning there's no info about the job in any way, save for the general location, whether it's full or part time, whether it's contract or temporary, and the industry sector. There's nothing about when each job was... (read more)

Having previously used totaljobs, I was hesitant to switch to another recruiter but the sales man hounded me for weeks, promised me the earth and eventually wore me down so I agreed to a 28 day posting of a previously successful ad used with others. Within a few days, I had an email from my "account manager" letting me know that she would be in touch to see how it was going. That was the last contact. I knew within the first week that this was going wrong because we'd only had one... (read more)

I will never use Fish4 site again. We had a very bad experience with this board and people who work for this company. The response to our advertisement was poor and of low quality. All this has created extra work with no results at all. The sales staff was friendly until they sold a 'special offer' contract and from this point onwards, Fish4 legal department took over. I worked with lots of professional businesses and it was always pleasure to deal with however, this one was not one of them.... (read more)

as and employer who used this website if i could give it a negative star rating I would , quite simply the biggest waste of money I have spent on advertising and I use a number of regional job boards as well as national job boards.
Completely non-user friendly, also the content and quality was abysmal

Everything from the lay out to the way you edit CV's, it's useless.
Some days you can go to edit and re-upload your CV; other days it makes you write a CV but then replaces your CV with this instead.
I've put up with the site for several months but have finally given up on it. I found other job sites like Jobsearch that pull jobs from Fish, Monsters etc anyway, so you get a better service and the same search results.
I wouldn't recommend Fish to anyone.

This site is better than most. Reed is probably the next best one to this.
At the people saying it set them up on a cruise ship for a chef's job. Seriously YOU COULD HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A CRUISE SHIP! Now you're stuck in a cafe in swindon washing dishes.
As for the adult adverts so what? They have a right to advertise as much as anyone else. (read more)

I applied for a job and was almost immediately contacted by a representitive telling me my details were to be sent to the prospective employer and I would be contacted early the following week. And as with most job agencies I have NOT had any contact since. I think its about time employers started checking if these agencies were doing their jobs. (read more)

Pretty useless. Kept coming up with results totally unrelated to the keyword/postcode. Also came up with several unsavoury results (escorts, adult film work), which makes me think they dont screen the adverts placed very well. In short, there are definitely much better job sites out there! (read more)

Fish4 need to moderate the jobs posted on this site.
Too many are:
1. Not jobs at all, but people selling training courses
2. People spamming the boards with a single job. When I looked it was about a million jobs for meter fitters
3. For some reason about a thousand jobs in Canada keep coming up, although I'm searching in a town in the UK.
I'm off to see if any of the other sites are better, (read more)

For some reason the advance search has changed. Fish4jobs don't tell you this. It comes up as an internal error.If you go to the first page and search from there and put in your post code and miles say 60 that you are prepared to travel and results come up for jobs 140 miles away. Not user frendly anymore.I don't use it as much as I would like to. (read more)

Fish4Jobs' website appears clunky & slow in operation. The site has the annoying feature of the page being larger than the display area of most computers, this would not be so irksome if the scrollbars were responsive, but they are not.
Every time more details are requested on a specific job the screen reverts to a display 75% occupied by the fish4jobs banner. Then the vertical scrollbar seems to become inactive for 10-20 secs.
The active text to click on for an action is not clearly... (read more)

I like using fish4jobs to look for jobs. It looks great (which is a rare treat), is easy to use plus is full of advice and tips on finding a new job. Please can we have more sites like this, job hunting is really depressing! (read more)

I am not happy with the service for the following reason :- Recruiting for jobs e.g advertising on fish4 jobs
Inability of Fish4 staff to place and maintain advert on the website in my experience and opinion.
Misleading information from Fish 4 Staff that advert would placed straight away however it wasnt.
No passwords or login details given, had to keep chasing them to get advert place personally.
I do not recommend Fish4Jobs.co.uk (read more)

The Fish4Jobs website is easy on the eye and it is easy to use. It is broken down into different sections so that you can find exactly what you're looking for, and the site seems to hold most of the latest jobs. (read more)
