Government Advertising Website for Tier 2 General Applications to be Replaced
The Jobcentre Plus Universal Jobmatch website (UJM), used by employers to advertise for Tier 2 General applications where a Resident Labour Market Test is required will be replaced by a new website, called Find a Job, on May 14, 2018.
A closer look
- Transition to new system. Existing UJM accounts will be available until June 17, 2018, but not beyond this date. Advertisements, resumes or applicant information saved within a current UJM account will be lost after June 17.
- Employers will need to create an account on the Find a Job site to publish advertisements after May 17, and employees will need to register to be able to view their account information. It is not currently possible to create a Find a Job account, but employers and employees should try to create one after May 14.
- Verified employers will have their employer account details automatically transferred to the new site (however, no advertisements will transfer over). Employers will need to check whether they are a verified employer by calling UJM prior to May 14.
- Pending advertisements. Advertisements can be posted on the UJM system until May 17 (including on that day) and will remain live on the UJM website until their expiry date. Advertisements on the UJM system with expiry dates beyond June 17, 2018 will need to be posted on the Find a Job system once registration opens.
UK Visas and Immigration plans to update the Immigration Rules and guidance in relation to the UJM closure in June. In the meantime, all references to UJM should be interpreted as including its successor, Find a Job.
UJM will email existing users regarding the closure with an explanation as how to save any information currently on the site.
