So if you was looking for edinburgh jobs, you would simply click that city which would then load all jobs in that area.

The website works by pulling in other job entries from other points on the World Wide Web so the jobs you find on the website is up to date. Features wise it includes being able to get email updates related to the areas you want (such as getting emailed for all new updates for lets say around Edinburgh)
