On Gumtree you can always save a job for later. Simply click the heart to add a job to your 'Favourites'. As long as you are logged into your Gumtree account this will be synced across all your devices. Jobs you have saved can be found from your account profile by clicking the 'Favourites' button.

My CV is over the 6MB limit. How can I make it smaller?
If your file is over the 6MB limit, try removing any images, tables or logos to bring the size down as these can sometimes make the file large. If the file just contains text, you should be fine!
Is my CV and profile completely private?
Yes. Only the jobs you apply for will receive your CV. Having your CV uploaded simply allows you to apply for more jobs faster!
When will I hear back from my job application?
It will depend on the recruiter when you will hear back after applying. Check the job description to see if this information has been provided by the recruiter. Some jobs which receive huge numbers of applicants may not always respond if unsuccessful.
