Universal Jobmatch launches on 19 November 2012. This is the Department for Work and Pensions new, free online job posting and matching service.

Universal Jobmatch replaces the current vacancy management services, Employer Direct and Employer Direct Online for companies, and it replaces the Jobcentre Plus jobs and skills search facility for jobseekers.

New technology will help speed up the recruitment process for companies and jobseekers by automatically matching jobseekers CVs and skills to jobs posted online.

This new streamlined service will be accessed through GOV.UK for companies and anyone looking for work. GOV.UK replaces Directgov and Businesslink from 17 October 2012 and will be the best place to find government services and information.
