As a result 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 finance, driving and IT 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.
