Playing around with regex, I came up with this. This is not absolute but it solves this problem, and some others.
Assuming that the locations you want to extract are the names of places after job titles.

use warnings; use strict; while (<DATA>) { chomp; my $str = reverse $_; if ( $str =~ m/((.*?)(\s\-\s)?(.*?))\3/ ) { my $matched_str = scalar reverse $1; $matched_str =~ s/^(-\s?)?//; print $matched_str, $/; } } __DATA__ Part Time - Weekend Receptionist - Barton le Clay - Barton-le-Clay (ne +ar Luton) Part-Time Weekend Day Veterinary Nurse - Milton Keynes Receptionist - Barton-le-Clay (near Luton) Full Time - Veterinary Nurse - Glasgow Referral - Glasgow Full Time - Professional House wife - Umuezebi Family House - New Have +n-Upper-Chime-Enugu ( near 9th Mile ) Full time liar - Glasgow (Australia)
Barton le Clay - Barton-le-Clay (near Luton)
Milton Keynes
Barton-le-Clay (near Luton)
Glasgow Referral - Glasgow
Umuezebi Family House - New Haven-Upper-Chime-Enugu ( near 9th Mile )
Glasgow (Australia)

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
