A new level of recruitment support is in place at Back to Work for Island employers who are about to take on staff for the Christmas period.
The team, based at Social Security, can help take the hassle out of seasonal employment by providing access to a wide range of candidates and recruitment services.
Social Security Minister Senator Francis Le Gresley said that the team will be contacting a number of employers directly to promote the service they can offer but were also keen to hear from all recruiting employers with specific needs.
Senator Le Gresley said: “The message for employers is that we want to know how we can help as they gear up for the Christmas season. The team is perfectly positioned to match job-seekers with vacant roles and so can save employers some of the usual costs associated with recruitment.
“There are a number of services that the Back to Work team can provide to make seasonal recruitment easier and less costly, from providing a range of candidates for interview to undertaking the initial shortlisting for the roles available,” he said.
The Back to Work team can:
• Pre-vet and provide initial short-listing of candidates
• Assist in identifying and funding immediate training needs
• Organise interviews
• Provide initial in-work support
• Organise job trials and work placements
“Our clients have such a wide range of skills and, for many, finding work for the next couple of months will be the best Christmas present they could get,” he said.
As well as employers who need staff to cover the Christmas period, Back to Work is keen to hear from employers providing financial services who will soon have an additional workload to produce year-end accounts and annual returns.
