    I am trying to set up a page based that receives all posts from given pages based on a custom field and also has pagination. It is being used for a jobs listing style of page.

    I have looked at codex and have used the following code which seemed to be the solution.

    So I have gone and created a few pages and have created the custom field called category and have assigned it the value of jobs.

    I have also created an empty page and have assigned a template to it which has the code below but I am not getting a listing of jobs based on custom field value as expected.

    <?php
    if (is_page() ) {
    $category = get_post_meta($posts[0]->ID, 'category', true);
    }
    if ($category) {
      $cat = get_cat_ID($category);
      $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
      $post_per_page = 4; // -1 shows all posts
      $do_not_show_stickies = 1; // 0 to show stickies
      $args=array(
        'category__in' => array($cat),
        'orderby' => 'date',
        'order' => 'DESC',
        'paged' => $paged,
        'posts_per_page' => $post_per_page,
        'caller_get_posts' => $do_not_show_stickies
      );
      $temp = $wp_query;  // assign orginal query to temp variable for later use
      $wp_query = null;
      $wp_query = new WP_Query($args);
      if( have_posts() ) :
    		while ($wp_query->have_posts()) : $wp_query->the_post(); ?>
    	    <div <?php post_class() ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
            <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
            <small><?php the_time('F jS, Y') ?> <!-- by <?php the_author() ?> --></small>
            <div class="entry">
              <?php the_content('Read the rest of this entry »'); ?>
            </div>
            <p class="postmetadata"><?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', '<br />'); ?> Posted in <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?>  <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?></p>
          </div>
        <?php endwhile; ?>
        <div class="navigation">
          <div class="alignleft"><?php next_posts_link('« Older Entries') ?></div>
          <div class="alignright"><?php previous_posts_link('Newer Entries »') ?></div>
        </div>
      <?php else : ?>
    
    		<h2 class="center">Not Found</h2>
    		<p class="center">Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.</p>
    		<?php get_search_form(); ?>
    
    	<?php endif; 
    
    	$wp_query = $temp;  //reset back to original query
    
    }  // if ($category)
    ?>

    This is somewhat of a guess, but I think this is what you want:

    <?php
      $paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
      $post_per_page = 4; // -1 shows all posts
      $do_not_show_stickies = 1; // 0 to show stickies
      $args=array(
        'meta_key' => 'category',
        'meta_value' => 'jobs',
        'orderby' => 'date',
        'order' => 'DESC',
        'paged' => $paged,
        'posts_per_page' => $post_per_page,
        'caller_get_posts' => $do_not_show_stickies
      );
      $temp = $wp_query;  // assign orginal query to temp variable for later use
      $wp_query = null;
      $wp_query = new WP_Query($args);
      if ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) :
    // rest of your code here
