Adzuna is a really nice tool for job seekers - very nice to have results appear which actually bare resemblance to the search query I entered - which already puts it miles ahead of Indeed and the like. The search is actually very powerful and relevant.
Also a big fan of the salary stats - great for understanding salary expectations and also having a general nose ;)
Besides matching your networks with current job opportunities Adzuna constantly releases new data/stats about where do you have the cheapest rents, best paid jobs, etc.. I really don't think there is something like this out there, so I can only it deserves 5 starts!
It's the best job search site out there. Every job ad in the UK in one place - saving you time humping around all those different job boards - plus useful alerts, stats around salaries and a cool feature called Adzuna Connect which allows you to see jobs that are going at companies where your friends work.
I love this site, it's so intuitive. I find myself just searching for stuff I don't need just because it is like it knows you and is working for you. It's like having a butler who has already anticipated your needs and is diligently waiting for you to input what you think you want before BAM, it hits you with what you didn't know you wanted, but what you needed. I can't speak highly enough of this site. 10/10.
...simply because it contains almost all jobs in the UK, from all the major players out there.
Let's say you want to search for permanent accountant jobs in a radius of 5 miles around Central London with a starting salary of £30K. There are around 10+ websites out there specialising in accountacy jobs. Instead of running 10+ searches in 10 different websites, simply go to www.adzuna.co.uk/jobs and perform the search.
Found something you wanna check out? Click on it and you're redirected to the website which has the full details.
Even better, you can set up an email alert which will notify you when new jobs appear IN ANY of the websites Adzuna collects information from.
Think of Adzuna as a specialised search engine that focuses only in Jobs (and Properties and Cars!)
For the power users out there, try the advanced search at http://www.adzuna.co.uk/jobs/advanced-search to get exactly the job ads you're after.
I was looking for places to move, and used the friend map to see who I knew in the area - it worked perfectly as I could then ask them about the area and get the insider view!
Have been using Adzuna to find a flat to rent. Only bothered to review it because it's been great for comparing rental prices between different areas of London, which was annoyingly hard to do!
Lets me search by precise filters, so I don't have to wade through rubbish to find what I want, I only see the kind of flats I want to see!
Came across Adzuna cars when hunting for a car, wouldn't use any other car classifieds website since finding it. Saves me having to look across lots of different sites as they have ads from all the main sites.
I was searching for a Ford Fiesta and they have lots of graphs to show what I should be paying for cars from different years. The map view was also really useful as I didn't want to travel far, so could view cars only in North London.
The other handy feature was being able to sign-up for alerts to new cars added, so I didn't have to keep checking the site. Plus there's a fun car quiz to do too!
Adzuna is a really simple site to use and it gives you accurate search results for property (or jobs and cars) without asking you too many questions first. I think that this is important because often you don't want to spend time with lots of filters before you find the property you want to look at.
I really like the Friend Map feature where you can see where your friends on facebook hang out also, it makes property search a lot more engaging and relevant to you.
Overall, I would definitely recommend. It's easy to use and gives you the information you want very quickly.
Loved the social features, really helps leverage your network to find a job
Really straightforward to use and saves me the pain of searching on multiple sites. I've been researching cars and its great I have all the info I need by location.
I also saw the property search so I'll def be using that too!

Most job and classifieds sites look like they haven't changed since 2003 (make that 1999 for Gumtree and Craigslist!). Adzuna is the fresh face in a tired market; social, easy to use, and packed with up to date listings.

When I was looking for job i was shuffling loads of website. Since I found adzuna I save time and i discover connections between friends and job opportunity. This was because of the amazing intergration with LinkedIn.
Absolutely fantastic site. Easy to browse thousands of Job postings instead of having to use thousands of separate sites, each of which individually only list a few. Excellent idea and brilliant execution in the website. Easy to use and fast. Absolutely fantastic.
It just seems obvious that this is the best way to search for jobs / cars / property. Pretty much every relevant ad in the UK is in one place -- so much simpler than opening up hundreds of tabs from ten different listing sites!
Simple idea. Kinda wondering why no-one's done it before. They've got all the stuff you want to search and it's nicely arranged and displayed. Reminds me of Trulia in the States a bit. Nice idea.

I love this service - I use it to look up property listings and jobs. I've seen they are looking at car buying too but that's not something I'm interested in. The site is very cool and clever with a great breadth of listings that I've used.
