Different bits of government, and associated agencies, publish job vacancies and apprenticeships online in different formats (councils/civil service/jobcentre plus/apprenticeships/teaching).
They reguarly exclude pertinent information such as location, hours etc.
Vacancies are not machine readable, so 3rd party search engines have to maintain screen-scrapers.
Search engines and some job websites are beginning to recognise semanticly marked up job postings.
- Be able to find jobs/apprenticeships published by the government on 3rd party job websites
- Be able to perform advanced job/apprenticeship searches e.g. by location, travel time or hours
- Be able to easy reuse jobs/apprenticeships published by government beginning
- Be able to search for jobs/apprenticeships published by government regardless of where they are published (e.g. google / bing)
- Better job//apprenticeship search for users
- Ability to build smarter job search tools (e.g. map to travvel time/child-care/skills)
- Save time for job search websites and allow them to provide a better standard
- Better interoperability between services
- Encourage open standards in the wider job-market information sector
Publish the following information in a machine readable format:
- closing date
- education requirements
- disability access
