The Employment Service has over 1000 Jobcentres nationwide that can help you find recruits for a whole range of positions and sectors either locally or UK wide in some cases. It doesn't cost anything to post a vacancy with them and you can benefit from support both before and after the position is filled.
Services offered by Jobcentre Plus include advice on recruitment methods and procedures; information about the local labour market such as employment levels; availability of candidates and wage rates; and
advice on any difficulties or barriers to filling your vacancies.
It is also important to file any other details such as whether a driving license will be required. This will just help avoid wasting your and your candidates’ time later on.
The details of the job are entered into a computer system that job seekers can either access themselves or through a consultant. If you then agree your expectations with your contact at the Jobcentre, they can let you know when there are enough suitable applicants.
You can now create, view and update your jobs yourself through Employer Direct online. To find out more go to www.jobcentreplus.gov.uk/key
Or you can e-mail your vacancies at any time to mailto:EMPLOYERDIRECT-VACANCIES@JOBCENTREPLUS.GSI.GOV.UKor fax them to 0845 601 2004
You can use the Jobcentre as a base for interviews and the consultants are always on hand to help. It is also free.
Can be a time consuming process as you are relying on people coming into the job centre to see your adverts
