Scottish recruiter provides lifeline to redundant professionals
Orion Group, Scotlands leading recruitment agency, has been selected by the Department of Work and Pensions to provide specialist jobsearch support for newly unemployed professionals.
The scheme was initiated in response to the economic downturn and aims to train redundant executives on modern job hunting skills and give advice on how to transfer or update their expertise to secure new employment.
Orion Group has been selected for its 21 years expertise in placing job seekers in new and prosperous employment. The recruitment agency will offer support and advice to any staff facing redundancy and offer confidential jobsearch assistance.
Participants in the programme will have access to Orions extensive database of vacancies and the experienced team will match candidates to suitable positions, assist with references and provide invaluable guidance ahead of interviews. Candidates will be referred to the project through Jobcentre Plus advisers.
Paul Savage, managing director, Orion Group said: At a time when hard-working and experienced professionals are facing redundancy, it is imperative that recruitment agencies are on hand to provide support and expert advice.
The Department of Work and Pensions has wisely responded to the economic downturn by identifying experienced companies, such as Orion Group, which can help build candidates skills and place them in new, more suitable roles. To be granted this status by the Government is testament to Orions esteemed reputation and years of dedication to the industry.
