Business Booster – Aberdeen Jobcentre – What’s New?

Speaker – Kirsty Jarman and Daniela Rotariu DWP

The session will include a brief overview of how Universal Credit can benefit employers, and why people claiming Universal Credit are looking for short term, ad hoc and part time hours as well as  full time work.

We will also cover the support we can offer small and medium employers with recruitment, looking at topics such as:

  • advertising vacancies on Universal Jobmatch and through DWP Alerts
  • delivering Group Information Sessions to customers to promote the opportunities in different sectors and with specific employers
  • sifting applications, and providing resources to support interviews.

We can offer support tailored to individual companies to ensure that our service meets each employer’s needs and we also work with a range of customers, partners and employers to identify and address skills shortages and training needs.  The session will include some examples of different levels of support we have offered local employers recently and will provide an opportunity for employers to ask questions or offer suggestions about how we could improve our support to them.
