A RECRUITER will host a series of live web events to help jobseekers find employment during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Supertemps has organised three webinars to take place over the coming weeks, beginning on Tuesday December 1.

Launched 40 years ago, the Colwyn Bay and Bangor-based company plans to cover a range of topics during the free sessions, including seven traits of the successful jobseeker and how to craft the perfect CV.

The virtual programme follows the recording of support and advice videos earlier this year for furloughed and at-risk workers, featuring team members including Managing Director Sarah Ellwood and Sian Shepherd, Business Manager at S2 Recruitment, the IT, executive and engineering arm of Supertemps.

Sarah says they plan to hold online sessions for employers in the new year, but for now the focus is on supporting candidates searching for a new role.

“Despite the pandemic and the challenges of 2020 there are still opportunities out there,” she said.

“We have seen some green shoots and clients are growing in confidence as the landscape starts to shift, especially here in Wales.”

Sarah added: “There has been a positive response to our web sessions and videos from those who are either looking to retrain and try something new, or staff at risk or furloughed.


“The sessions are free, and we have one simple aim – to get our people working and our economy moving again.”

There will be presentations by the firm’s qualified recruitment experts, followed by Q&A sessions. Participants are also able to send questions in advance.

During the summer, Supertemps and S2 Recruitment launched a suite of new services to complement its award-winning temporary and permanent recruitment offering.

These included multi-channel job advertising and their ‘Recruiter Rescue’ service – where a member of the team will act as an extra pair of hands for internal HR departments swamped with applications – plus additional support including online skills testing and psychometric and personality profiling.

Sian believes the way in which myriad sectors have transformed their business models and adapted to the ‘new normal’ by further embracing online technology puts them in a position to rebuild and come back stronger.

“There are still obstacles and challenges for many industries and the Coronavirus has had a negative impact on employment figures, with so many people sadly losing their jobs or at-risk of redundancy,” she said.

“We are here for you, and best-placed to help identify the right position with the right organisation. Hopefully, there will be a good response to these virtual events, and we can move forward together.”
