How can I attach a resume or cover letter to a job application using my mobile device?

You can apply for jobs providing your attachments in 4 possible ways, see below for a description and details on which options are available on your device.

  1. Upload a new file - We use a tool called Ink File Picker, this allows users to upload files from a range of places including the local device and cloud storage such as Dropbox. Only some devices support direct upload, see the table below for details. If you are not offered upload from your local device, but you believe your device can do this, select 'Enable File Upload From Local Folder' on the settings page.
  2. Choose an existing file (resume only) - If you are already registered and have 1 or more resumes stored on your account, you can select one from the list on the application form.
  3. Upload later (resume only) - This option allows you to apply for jobs on the go and upload your resume later. We will hold your applications for you until you can upload your resume. Once you upload your resume we will attach it to the applications and send them automatically.
  4. Free text (Cover Letter only) - You can type your cover letter in the box provided.
