At the outset of the coronavirus outbreak, Stockport Jobs Match was set up as a crisis response tool to help connect local jobseekers with urgent front line support and key worker jobs.
Recognising the need to help businesses stay operational – particularly within health and social care, food production and distribution for example – we responded quickly and had an effective solution in place in less than 72 hours.
Stockport residents were then able to find out about priority recruitment needs and start work quickly to support the local community.
Since then, Jobs Match has evolved to become an effective Jobs Portal that provides local jobseekers with access to temporary and permanent job opportunities across all sectors. Working with employers of all sizes, we’re spreading the word that Stockport is open for business and that companies are hiring.
We aim to signpost individuals to available jobs based locally and to help them return to work confidently and safely during COVID-19 and beyond. Our advisors provide support with all aspects of the job search process, from free CV templates to online interview coaching.
We have also launched the SK Employment Hub to provide access to careers advice, information and resources to help individuals find work, return to work and fulfil their potential. As a centralised platform and information hub, we can signpost jobseekers to local providers of training, apprenticeships, work placements, employability programmes, volunteering opportunities and more.
