The Workers Union has launched a new online jobs board for its members.
The board builds on the organisation’s reputation for technical innovation by offering a constantly updated list of jobs across every sector of the economy and every location in the country.
A spokesperson for The Workers Union said: ‘Our jobs page has been designed to take the sweat out of job hunting for our members. Rather than trawl through lots of different websites, workers can access this resource directly at www.theworkersunion.com/jobs . Live jobs are updated in real-time and can be filtered by location, too.’
The union believes that exploiting the potential of technology is the best way to meet the demands of modern workers.
‘As a new breed of union we’re very excited about bringing this service to our members because we believe that old models of union services are no longer fit for purpose. We know from our research that people want instant connection with relevant information and guidance. They don’t want to post forms or wait on the phone while a computer tries to push them in the direction of a pre-recorded message.
‘That’s why our approach means the important stuff is only a couple of key strokes away. Need to know where you stand with an issue in the workplace? A couple of taps of your smartphone or tablet will get you there. Looking for a new job or a career change? Our brand new jobs board has you covered.
‘We already lead the field with our innovative member’s dashboard, now we’re looking to make our union a one-stop shop for news, assistance, legal advice and job opportunities with much more development and innovation in the pipeline for our highly valued members.’
The State of Recruitment
The Workers Union’s jobs board comes at the optimum time for many of its members. The current extension to furlough has protected thousands of jobs, but reductions in the amount employers can claim from June and August will mean they are liable to make up the shortfall in workers’ wages. Some experts fear that this will see many jobs falling off a cliff as companies struggle with less government support.
‘We know that difficult times are ahead, so we want to make job hunting as easy and painless as possible. We can’t guarantee a job at the end of the process, but we can help to ease the stress of finding good opportunities.
‘That’s what we’re here for. We will always put the interests of our members above any other consideration. That’s why we’re the fastest growing workers’ organisation in the country today.’
