Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I register with oZZle?
If you are looking for a new Printing Job, Packaging
Job or Design Job, then oZZle is best placed to help you. We have the top Employers
and Recruiters in the industry using our Job Board to find their new employees.
Even if you do not see the right job for you at the moment, it is well worth registering
as we can email you the latest vacancies that match your skills. Our Employers and
Recruiters also regularly search our database, so you don’t need to do anything
and can be contacted about an interesting opportunity before it is even advertised.
I cannot log into my account, please can you help?
Please check you are logging into the Job Seeker section of our site. Please also remember your password is case sensitive or if you have forgotten your password, ask the system to send this to you. If this still doesn’t work, please contact us on 01764 656600 or email us for further help.
How do I protect my privacy on your site?
oZZle has the technology to keep your profile and
details completely confidential. At the end of your registration you will be asked
to complete our oZZle "Xclude" section. You enter the full name of the company you
currently work for, or previous organisations that you do not want to see your details
and they will never know you are registered with us. You can also add any new company
names at any time through your account, select “protect your privacy using "Xclude”
and enter the new details.
I keep being notified about jobs that are not relevant to my skills, how do I stop this?
This is because either you didn’t complete section
3 of your registration, but if you have, we will send you the jobs based upon the
key skills and desired job titles you have entered. Please visit your account and
select “jobs via email”. Please complete or edit this section with the job titles,
location and salary you would like to be notified about.
I cannot get the system to upload my CV?
Our system will only accept CV’s in either a Microsoft
Word Document or an Adobe PDF document. The file size is also really important and
your CV must be no larger than 250kb.
It may be that your CV is still open on your desktop.
Please make sure your CV document is closed before uploading your CV as otherwise
our system cannot find your document. Check your tabs at the bottom of your computer
to check whether you still have your CV open or not?
How do I update my CV in my account?
It’s really quick and easy to do and we recommend
doing this for each job application to make sure that your CV is relevant to each
role you apply for. Visit your account and select “Change your CV”. If you would
like to see which CV is currently in your account, select “download my CV”. This
does not mean that your CV has been removed it just allows you to read your current
CV. To upload your new CV, simply select “browse” from the tool bar and then find
your CV on your computer. Finally click “upload”.
Should I upload my CV onto oZZle?
Your CV is your main selling document and Employers
and Recruiters will always want to see your CV if you have applied to an advertised
job, your CV could also make you stand out from the crowd to make sure you land
that all important interview. If you do not want your CV in your account, it is
worth sending your CV to the advertiser after you have applied. You will always
receive a copy of your application with the email address of who you have applied
to, if your CV is not in your account, then send a separate email attaching your
CV, it will make you stand out and demonstrate how interested you are in the vacancy.
Another important reason for uploading your CV is
that our Employers and Recruiters often proactively search for the skills they need.
You could be headhunted quickly if your CV is in your account and sells your skills
and achievements, you could be notified about future vacancies before they are even
I notice that when I apply for jobs, there is a section for me to write a cover
letter, why is this important?
We cannot stress enough how important it is for you
to write a brief compelling cover note to make sure that the Employers and Recruiters
give you an interview. We have now made this section compulsory and strongly suggest
you use this effectively.
Write a short overview of how your skills and experience
match the Job requirements. It is well worth using the keywords that the advertiser
has used to make sure if they use electronic matching, your application will win
I have sent off applications and heard nothing back, how do I follow up on these?
We send you a copy of all applications. In this copy
you will see the email address of the person who your application has been sent
to. If after 3 days you have heard nothing, it is well worth sending a brief email
asking for feedback and again highlighting your skills against their needs.
If you have sent off numerous applications and receiving
no feedback it may also be worth reviewing your CV. Why not
read our CV tips to maximise your CV.
I would like to know more about the “Application
Tracker” section in my account as I see my application is still pending.
The Application Tracker section of your account shows
all the recent applications you have made and the status of these applications.
You will see the Job Title, Location, Salary, application
date and status. The status is the action that the advertiser has taken with your
If the status is shown as rejected, this means that
the advertiser has rejected your application and we would hope that you have received
an email explaining why. If it shows Pending, then this means that the advertiser
has taken no action at all in their account. When you see Pending it is worth a
follow up to gain feedback. You could also see “contacted”, this means the advertiser
has sent you an email asking for further information.
We would recommend you keep a spreadsheet of all
your applications and the interaction you have had with the organisation’s in case
you get a phone call out of the blue and you can then quickly refer to your spreadsheet
and know exactly about the role they are talking about.
I see during the registration process that I have the option to tick a box to receive
the latest jobs by email, what does this mean?
oZZle will match your desired job details with the
keywords of any new vacancies that are added and notify you by email. This means
you are always aware of the latest vacancies that match your skills. Once you receive
the email, if you click on the job title, you will be automatically directed to
the vacancy on our site. Simply log in and select the click to apply if you are
interested in submitting an application.
Wherever possible it is better to use a private email
address as you may get many invites to interviews and general communications from
I would like to stop receiving the new job emails
from you as I am going on holiday for two weeks, how do I go about doing this?
