Job search scheme extended by government

Job search scheme extended by government
Good news for many executive job seekers as the Government has confirmed that they will extend the Jobsearch scheme till March 2011.
The Scheme was initiated by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and JobCentre Plus to help form a working relationship between the private recruitment sector and JobCentre Plus. As a result, Jobsearch was born and has been instrumental in getting many executives and professionals back into work. This has been a fantastic source of support during the economic downturn and even though the Government has cut back on other initiatives, they have confirmed they will extend the Jobsearch scheme.
The initiatives success is one of the reasons why it has been extended, where access to information and a great array of support is provided by members to those professionals who are looking to get back into work. Many professional and executives have been made redundant over the last couple of years due to cut backs in both the private and public sector, highlighting the importance of such initiatives like Jobsearch.
Director of External Relations for REC, Tom Hadley said:
Though the scheme will be operated at a reduced rate to reflect the current economic circumstances, it is extremely positive news for us that Ministers have recognised the value of Jobsearch and the valuable contribution that private recruitment professionals play in the overall employment landscape.
Freelancers, contractors and temporary workers will have an important role to play in reviving the private sector back to its full strength.
