Experiment into long URLs

Lot's of my time is spent optimising my jobsites.
I would consider myself as raw talent when it comes to SEO and optimization of sites in general but I seem to spend an lot of time tweeking and updating the various sites.

I thought it was time to have a look at my Accountancy Recruitment website and see what I could do to enhance its search results.
So the test is; creating long URLs for my job postings from short non descriptive ones.
My job URLs used to look something like this; which doesn't really tell Google or any other search engine anything much.
We are now trailling this type of URL Hopefully a lot more creative and user friendly.

So, before the experiement my main search results (from Google) went like like;
Purchase Ledger Clerk jobs in Derbyshire (search result No 48)
Credit Control jobs in Derbyshire (search result No 56)
