Our Contractor Search function can be found in the Toolkit. Select the ‘Your Search’ button.
You will be taken to the search form; here you can fill in as many, or as little, of the criteria boxes as you want. The more you fill in the more refined your search becomes.
Our keyword search uses Boolean search. For full details on Boolean Search and how to best utilise it please see our Boolean Search Help Page
or our Boolean Search Video Guide.
If you search by location and want to include relocators that will relocate to that area, make sure to select the ‘Include Relocators’ check box.
A Radial Search finds all contractors willing to work in a set radius from a set location. To perform a radial search select ‘Radial Search’ on the Contractor Search form, choose your location and the Mile Radius that you wish.
When choosing rates: if you choose to search by Hourly Rate all results are displayed in Day Rate form (calculated as your specified hourly rate multiplied by 8 to demonstrate a working day rate).
‘Include Contractors whose details are not yet live’
If you select this checkbox Contractors who are not live will also be included in your search results. Contractors who are not currently live will have hidden personal details, contact details and CV. These will remain hidden until the Contractor becomes live. If you ‘Watch’ the Contractor you will receive an email alert when their details become live. Please see our Watch a Contractor Help Page for more information.
When choosing an Education level this will be searched as the lowest, or minimum, Education Level. For example if you searched for ‘Bachelors Degree’, all contractors with Bachelors, Honours and Masters degrees would appear in results, as well as those with Doctorates.
Choosing an Industry Sector will bring up contractors who are involved in that sector. If you wish to search for Contractors in multiple industry sectors then hold ‘Ctrl’ and select your desired sectors.
