An exceptional service for Halton Region employers; one-to-one service for those looking for work.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON  January 25, 2012  Halton Region residents looking for work or employers looking to fill positions now have access to a “personalized” service.  It is a significant time saver for employers.

The service for employers includes personalized services such as: screening and matching services to help employers select the best qualified candidate; reference checking and education verification service; training incentive programs to off-set the cost of training and hourly wages; access to the job board; the Employment Halton LinkedIn group where employers can network together regarding hiring needs and access to annual job fairs.  All the services are free.

If you are looking for a job the Region has an accessible employment resource centre complete with one-on-one support to help people searching for a job, help explore career options, and access programs and funding for apprenticeship and career development programs.  The only thing they don’t do is send a cab to pick you up. All services are free.

Funding for the Employment Halton office has been provided by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

In 2011, there were 8000 visits to the Employment Halton office and over 190 employers in Halton received services from Employment Halton staff.  The service exceeded Ministry targets for the number of clients and employers served and the number of clients that obtained jobs.  Anyone who is searching for a job or interested in training for a new career can visit the Employment Halton office in Bronte Village Mall (2441 Lakeshore Road West – Bronte Village Mall) in Oakville

Job creation is a top priority for every level of government and they don’t want to leave very much to chance. “The government believes people are our best resource the province has and programs like these help them to continue to contribute,” said Glen Murray, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities.
