New interview scheme will guarantee North Wales employers find the perfect candidate

Business, in Wales.

EMPLOYERS will benefit from a new recruitment programme that guarantees candidates will be suitable for the jobs they are advertising.

Conwy Employment Hub’s Guaranteed Interview Scheme is designed to build confidence among jobseekers and streamline the application process for companies looking to hire staff.

Those already signed up to the Hub’s raft of employment and training services can capitalise on the initiative, and they are hoping more private and public sector organisations will join them.

Among those already registered are Llandudno Pier, Alpine Coaches, Conwy County Borough Council, and hotels in Llandudno including The Imperial and St George’s.

Clare Kingscott, Employer Engagement Officer with Conwy Employment Hub, revealed a successful pilot of the scheme led to it being rolled out further.

“We have had so much positive feedback, this is a fantastic opportunity for jobseekers and HR teams across the county,” said Clare.

“We have offered a bespoke service for local employers for some time, but this takes it to the next level and will really enhance their recruitment processes.

“This scheme attracts more candidates and widens the pool of candidates we can place in front of the recruiting business or organisation, but they will have been pre-screened by us, so only applicants who match up with the position will be put forward for interview.”

She added: “We already have some top local companies on board from a variety of industries, so the scheme is off to a flying start.

“It’s a fantastic initiative, especially for employers, so we are encouraging as many as possible to get in touch and take advantage of this opportunity, no matter how big or small your business or organisation is. This is a free service, and we want as many people as possible to benefit from it.”

The move follows the Hub’s successful Conwy Job Expo, which welcomed more than 80 employers and over 1,100 jobseekers to Eirias Events Centre in Colwyn Bay earlier this year.
