Please note, due to the amount of spammers, please could you give a valid reason why you want to join the list. I don’t care who you are or why you want to join – I just need to be able to tell you are not a spammer. If I have denied you membership, it is because I think you are a spammer. (Perhaps you didn’t give a reason why you wanted to join). E-mail me and convince me you are not.

You will have a choice of Message Delivery:
Individual emails – Send individual email messages
Daily digest – Send many emails in one message
Special notices – Only send me important update emails from the group moderator
No email – Don’t send me email, I’ll read the message on the web
Do you only send adverts for a specific area, or job type?
Not right now, this could change in the future. Depending on if it can be figured out with limited resources.
There are 2 ways you can make things easier for yourself:
a) Read the subject lines of e mails, this should give you some indication of where the job is and is base. You can delete the remainder of your e mails without having to open them.
b) Use the ‘Search Archive’ function at Deaf UK Jobs typing in a keyword into the search box. Please note that you need to be logged in to use this function.
I am an international subscriber, can I work in the UK?
It depends on your own individual circumstances. Check out the Home Office’s UK Border Agency for more information.
Can I post my CV and looking for work details to the list?
No sorry. DUKJ has 9,000 subscribers and to say yes to one person, would mean we would have to say yes to everyone. Imagine 9,000 seeking work e mails. It would certainly drive us up the pole, and probably other people too.
How do I create a yahoogroups.com username and password, so that I can log in?
Go to Yahoogroups and in the left column, you will see:
New users – Click here to register
Click onto it, and you then need to follow the ‘Sign up for your Yahoo! ID’ process. Once you have done this, you will need to link your Yahoo! ID with your e mail addresses, you are subscribed to. This can be done for multiple addresses. If you do not link your addresses, you will not be able to see the groups you are subscribed to, when you sign in. If you cannot see any indication at this stage, on how to do this, you can do this later.
Once you have created your Yahoo! ID and password, you can sign in. If you are not prompted, go to Yahoogroups to do this.
After signing in, click onto ‘My Groups’, at the top right hand of the page. This should then list all the groups you are subscribed to. If all your groups are not shown, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click onto ‘Don’t see all your groups?’, then follow all the steps for ‘Find My Memberships’.
How do contact Alison?

My name is Alison. I generally do not bite, but I can get grumpy if you expect me to do basic stuff for you and you didn’t try yourself. Otherwise I’m happy to help out. (I’m also on Twitter, @Deaf).
