Set up in response to the overwhelming demand from jobseekers for information about jobs with London 2012 sponsors, contractors and suppliers, Adecco, the official recruitment services provider of the Olympic and Paralympic Games has launched www.jobsforthegames.co.uk
Employers can now access a dedicated ‘Recruiter Zone’ of the site, where they can register and begin posting available roles and browsing relevant CVs, using a host of search and matching tools to identify future employees.
Organisations can also take advantage of a range of advertising opportunities, including job and brand advertising on the site.
The site is designed to directly link employers with those searching for work with London 2012 sponsors, contractors and suppliers. Employers looking to fill roles related to the Games are urged to sign up now to secure the best possible talent. Job seekers already registered on the site have been seeking a wide range of roles, from catering and tourism to security and cleaning, as well as technical and professional roles.
Steve Girdler, Adecco’s Director of London 2012 Partnerships, said, “Employers big and small will be looking take maximum advantage of the business opportunities provided by the London 2012 Games. In order to do so they will need to staff up and inevitably the pool of talented people is finite. The job board provides employers with a captive audience of keen and available jobseekers. In the first week of the website going live for job seekers, over 45,000 people interested in securing a role related to the London 2012 Games registered their interest, uploading their CVs and signing up for email alerts to keep them updated with new, relevant roles as they become available.
“Through www.jobsforthegames.co.uk we are able to offer employers a dedicated, central source of talent, enabling them to secure new and additional staff via a fast and effective route. With over 45,000 people who are interested in supporting the Games already registered – a figure which is increasing on a daily basis – we expect the site to prove an essential tool for employers and job seekers alike.”
