How do I create a job alert?

Step 1: To create a job alert, please go to CharityVillage and select FIND A JOB at the top of the page or click here.


Step 2: Input your location and job search criteria.

If you want to enter one or more locations for your job alert, add the city or region into the LOCATION field at the top right and click SEARCH. It will then be added to the left hand side of the screen where you can adjust the search radius. The default radius is set to 50km. Repeat this step for each location you wish to add.


To the left-hand side of the Find a Job page, you will notice there are a number of menus that run down the side of the page. These selections are optional, but will help you be more specific in the types of positions you wish to apply to.

Click once to include them in your search = green in colour
Click twice to NOT include them in your search =

Work Location options:

Hybrid Jobs - These jobs are flexible in their location (e.g. allow you to work from the organization's office and at home).
Remote Jobs - Jobs that do not require you to work from the organization's office. You might see a location added with a job that is "Remote" if the organization requires an individual to be located in a city or province.
Onsite Jobs - Jobs that require you to work from an office.


Step 3:
Once you've entered your search criteria, scroll down the page.

Enter your email address into the Job Email Alerts box that is located about half way down the left hand side of the page. You can also edit the name of the job alert to reflect what you are searching for. E.g. "Latest jobs - Remote".

Once you are finished, click "Send me job alerts." 

You will be emailed once per day with the results that match the criteria you selected. 

If you have an existing Jobseeker account created with the same email address, you can manage these alerts from your Jobseeker profile, located under the TOOLS section.




Please Note: Some jobs or volunteer listings advertised on the CharityVillage website will require you to have a CharityVillage account to apply. Therefore, if you do not have an account with us, click here to sign up. It's completely FREE!
