WIN-WIN EMPLOYMENT SOLUTIONS

The Love Howick JobCentre aims to provide a ‘bridge’ between job seekers who have graduated from the various Job Readiness Programmes offered by the Dream Centre, and prospective local employers. Employers will now be able to find good quality candidates to fill the entry-level position (part or full time), and short-term contract workers or internships in their organisation that have been trained, vetted and quality assured by our team. This vital support structure for job seekers will also enable them to access job opportunities cost-effectively, efficiently and in one central place.

  • No-fuss Employment Solutions: For entry-level vacancies, employers often resort to low-cost solutions to filling a position. The most common is to invite a current employee to bring someone they know to the interview! This often leads to less than ideal employees finding their way into an organisation with negative consequences. We provide a low-cost, time-sensitive, professional service that allows you to fill both part-time and full-time positions in your organisation with a higher degree of certainty that the ‘fit’ is right. We also have a steady supply of quality temporary staff ready to start at any given time.
  • Open Communication: We do not place candidates and then hope for the best. We engage regularly with the employer, receiving valuable feedback to enhance our programmes and tackle any problems that arise.

Our goal is win-win employment solutions!

VALUED-ADDED APPROACH

  • Workplace Skills Incubator: Job seekers are enrolled in various training courses to help them hone the skills, mindset and character needed to add value to their future places of employment. Selected graduates are enrolled in Mentorship Programmes with various leaders in the business world to enhance their learning process and ensure vital EQ development.
  • Workplace Experience Provided: At both phase one and two of training, job seekers take part in a volunteer programme and various workplace practical’s where they are encouraged to serve in an environment connected to their career goals. This enables vital skills transfer, improved confidence and an opportunity to test out ‘right fit’ for future careers.
  • Only Excellent Candidates Referred: Our reputation and experience in this field mean that employers trust that we will only provide them with great candidates; through our ‘E-referral system’. Candidates are assessed at every stage throughout their training, and this results in grading for excellence on a sliding scale from 1E to 4E.
