A Little Help from Job Centre Plus

No Comments Current News, Current Vacancies

Department for Work and Pensions have announced that on 19 November 2012, they will launch ‘Universal Jobmatch’ – a new, free* online job posting and matching service.

This new online service will improve their recruitment service for both companies and jobseekers by speeding up the recruitment process, making it quicker and easier for companies to find suitable jobseekers.

Anyone looking for work will be able to set up an account, and create a CV or upload CVs they already have. The new technology will automatically match their CVs and skills to suitable jobs that are posted by companies on the new service.

From 19 November, companies will need to post all their jobs online using Universal Jobmatch, as it is replacing the current Jobcentre Plus vacancy services – Employer Direct, Employer Direct Online and Job Warehouse.

After posting a job, companies will receive a list of suitable jobseekers, ranked by best match first. They can then select the jobseekers they want to apply and invite them to apply online.

Universal Jobmatch will be accessed via GOV.UK which is replacing Businesslink, Business Gateway in Scotland, and Business Wales, and also replaces Directgov for jobseekers.  It will be available in Welsh and English.

Police Community Support Officer Recruitment

No Comments Current News

Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) are at the very heart of our communities. They tend to work with local people at a grassroots level with a remit to support operational policing. Their very presence in the neighbourhoods provides reassurance to members of the public and the communities at large.

South Wales Police (SWP) have recently announced that they intend to recruit some PCSOs to supplement policing in our neighbourhoods (PCSO Recruitment). It is pleasing to see that this recruitment drive is being supplemented by some  positive action by the South Wales Police’ Positive Action Officer, Mrs Uzo Iwobi, OBE. She has undertaken to provide support and guidance to members of our communities at a forthcoming event. In this respect she has organised a familiarisation session which is being held on Friday 27th January between 10:30am and 12:30pm at the Pontardawe Arts Centre, Herbert Street, Pontardawe SA8 4ED.

Spaces are limited so if you would like to reserve a space please contact Rhys Thomas on 07805 301532 in the first instance.
