Relationships with Employers

A key element of the work at the BJC is to build relationships with employers. The BJC provides a professional and free service to employers assisting them in recruitment of staff. The BJC has over twenty years of experience working with employers in meeting their recruitment needs.

We believe each employer is unique. The Staff of the BJC work to understand the distinctive recruitment needs of employers and match people accordingly.
Since opening in 1986 over 15,000 job seekers have registered with the BJC. At any given time the BJC is working with over 800 active job seekers. When clients register with the BJC they are interviewed to determine their educational background, previous work experience, career and employment interests. Many of the clients registered with the BJC have undertaken education or training and have acquired skills relevant to today’s labour market. Our staff work with clients on a one-to-one basis in order to prepare them for, and support them to access employment..
Our relationship with employers is important to us. Employers use and re-use the BJC services because of the experience, professionalism of the staff and quality of the service provided.
In order to improve the prospects for clients accessing quality, sustainable employment it is often necessary to increase their skills and educational levels. Thus the development of training and education programmes is an important aspect of the work of the BJC. As a result, the BJC has developed and implemented many training and education programmes.
The BJC has worked and continues to work with a wide range of agencies and local employers, in order to deliver the training .

We have worked closely with local Employers like IKEA, Keelings and Musgraves, developing training programmes to maximise employment opportunities for local people.

Currently we are running a Retail Associate Programme in conjunction with CDETB, IKEA, and CENIT College starting in July/August 2016. The previous course which was completed in June 2016, was very successful with 15 students taking part and completing the 6 month course.

From working with clients staff can quickly identify individuals that match the job and the person specification. Our staff contact the clients to discuss the vacancy and the details of the job. If they are suitable they are selected as potential candidates.

Step five
A shortlist is drawn up and the employer is given a selection of CV’s. From the shortlist of CV’s the employer selects the candidates they wish to call for interview. The BJC staff will contact the candidates and arrange to set up interviews with the employer and if necessary, the BJC can provide interview facilities. And if successful the BJC Staff will follow up with the employer to discuss how the placement is working out.
