Groundwork London provides tailored employment advice and support for individuals across many programmes and initatives. Its employment team work from different offices all across London, so cross team information sharing has been critical for signing up new clients and providing individual advice and guidance on finding a new roles for the client.
To facilitate this, the GDS teams has developed an application so that an employment advisors can upload client details which will be useful to help them with their job search. The teams are now able to track what types of jobs are being sought after by the clients in different locations across London all in a single place. This means officers can more easily identify the types of businesses in each area to develop relationships with, which can in turn be put forward to clients.
The application also enables any live vacancies to be uploaded onto the system. Employment advisors can then review these vacancies and submit candidates for those jobs - and with the ability to track what jobs are being submitted, work out which types of jobs are more/less suitable for the clients. The teams also use the list of live vacancies to send out to our referral partners - showing them the types of opportunities they can help candidates get work in and therefore encouraging them to refer candidates for the programmes.
