Direct.gov Jobs and Jobcentre Plus
Job Centre Plus is an initiative together with direct.gov to help job seekers get all the resources, advices and help to find the right job. Not all job seekers have access to all the vacancies nationally and internationally nor do they have the adequate resources with which they can find the right job for them. Although finding a job may not be an out of the world daunting challenge, still finding a desirable one and that too quickly can be difficult. Furthermore, when one considers the probabilities of getting their CV selected and then progressing through the interviews successfully, getting the best job becomes quite a challenge.
The entire objective of Job Centre is to get people to look for opportunities that they would otherwise not be aware of and get expert help to go through the entire recruitment process and manage to get the job eventually.
Job Centre Plus has come a long way ever since its inception and since no initiative is perfect from day one, the Centre also had its fair share of shortcomings. Today, Job Centre Plus is one of the most state of the art and well provisioned such initiatives in the world.
With modern offices, staffs that are not just well versed with the recruitment industry but also experts on counseling and giving professional advice to crack the interviews, any job seeker can find all the requisite resources to find the job.
A typical process of using the services of a Job Centre is to call their free phone number 0845 604 3719 and get an appointment with one of the advisors. The meeting between the job seeker and the advisor is an extensive one that creates a profile for the job seeker, takes down every detail that would be relevant for the job search and makes the job seeker aware of the resources available at the Job Centre.
Following the meeting and registration, job seekers can search the national and international databases of jobs either online or through the automated interactive kiosks that are in the offices of Job Centre Plus. All jobs can be searched through with added focus on the areas of expertise or the desired categories of jobs for a seeker.
Job Centre Plus brings together technology, vacancies from all across the world, expertise in the hiring and consulting industry to job seekers in the UK and provides all essentials to find your desired job quickly.
