About Somerset Jobs

How it began

Firstly, welcome to Somerset Jobs! Thank you for stopping by.

My name is Stu and I am the owner of Somerset Jobs Limited. The website launched on 17th April 2020.

After a few years working in the media industry and advertising job vacancies on a local level it soon became clear of the gaps in the market for something else.

So after a lot of research Somerset Jobs was born.

Hopefully you will find it easy to use and enjoy what can be the dreaded task of job hunting.

The branding

Find Your Future

Coming up with a business tagline is really quite difficult. I wanted to create something simple & memorable but relative to both job hunters and employers.

What is Somerset Jobs about?

Originally it started as a platform to advertise job vacancies Somerset, it has now seen growth from one county to the entire South West region. Visit “Job Shop South West”

One thing I noticed was a lack of places to advertise career related events, so an events guide for jobs & careers fairs, company recruitment open days and apprenticeship information events has been included. If people are job hunting I felt it was logical to show them what’s on locally on the same website.

There are some great training & development providers in the region. The information about adult learning courses and/or apprenticeships for those who want to further themselves or start training and how to get in touch with them will be showcased.

For job hunters it’s so annoying to find out of date and duplicated jobs. I aim to avoid showing the jobs that are no longer available. This was something really obvious when doing research.

We have also started hosting job fairs helping recruiters and job hunters to “Find Your Future” staff/career. Our first was was in March 2022 and we have more planned. Keep an eye on our events guide for further recruitment events. Visit “Job Fairs South West”.

As well as a signposting service here on our Somerset Jobs website we have the same running for Dorset on our Dorset Jobs website.

Mission statement

We strive to improve the experience of job hunting within Somerset and the rest of the South West by providing different search options and by promoting relevant recruitment events to users to help achieve their recruiting or job hunting goals.


Somerset Jobs aims to be a comprehensive “One Stop Job Shop” for the South West. There are plans in place to expand our links with media outlets and our “job of the day” feature on local radio stations.
