Ireland’s leading award winning flexible employment agency, Employflex has been running free webinars for jobseekers every Thursday at 3pm. Recognising that there was a need for jobseekers to connect, upskill and feel inspired during lockdown, they started these webinars 4 weeks ago.
‘We have been blown away with the popularity of the webinars highlighting that there is a demand for what we do’ Founder Karen O’Reilly enthused ‘With over half a million people on the live register, equating to more than a fifth of the working population in the Republic, we feel that we are doing our small part in helping out’
The webinars, which are free to attend have covered topics such as Networking Online, Upskilling during downtime, LinkedIn for jobseekers and How to ace the Online Interview. Our next webinar is on tomorrow Thursday 4th June at 3pm online – we will focus on designing a CV to stand out from the crowd’ says founder Karen O’Reilly.
‘We used to run free workshops for people going back to work and now we have brought these online.’ O’Reilly notes ‘The subjects we cover reflect that the world of work has changed and that we need to change our jobseeking habits to reflect this. We have been advocates for remote work for five years so we have a deep knowledge of flexible and remote work which we are happy to share.’
Along side that they have a blog full of advice for working remotely and part remotely as well as tips for companies like questions to ask when hiring for a remote role and also a free remote work policy to download.
‘We are happy to share our knowledge and help employers and employees navigate their way into the Future of Work.’
