| I work as a consultant for Christian Jobs, My name is Leigh Richmond, I’ve worked within the recruitment field for 12+ years and served and supported people at all career levels.|
From working in this field, and from those I have spoken too, it is clear that the pandemic has had a detrimental impact on many organisations. People being made redundant or having their working hours reduced. With the furlough scheme ending in October, this also puts additional pressure on organisations in retaining their workforces.
Over the past few months, we’ve been particularly involved in helping people who have unfortunately been made redundant and are struggling to find new employment opportunities. I’m certain that there are people in many organisations who are experiencing these issues, or the fear of these issues. Recently, an organisation who we have worked in partnership with over the years has unfortunately had to begin a redundancy process. They reached out to us to work with the affected people to support them back into work.
At Christian Jobs, we firmly believe that God has tasked us to use our skills and experience to serve people like you.
So, this is how we think we can support you and your congregations: We have a dedicated website www.christianjobs.co.uk with over 70 live vacancies specifically within Christian led organisations. These vacancies change month by month and are across lots of different industries and experience levels. We’d love to help direct your affected people to the site – we can record a video for your internal communications. Hosting interactive Zoom or in-person sessions for your affected groups. Using our experience to help them with practical parts of finding a new job (best places to find appropriate roles, how to fill in application forms / CV development, developing interview skills etc.). We can tailor this to your own timescales and numbers. If you have any vacancies available in your organisation, we can serve you through a few effective ways. We can advertise them on our site (40,000+ visits per month) or utilise our executive search function, where we will use our reach to help find you the ideal candidate. We can even analyse your current recruitment process and recommend how to make them more effective in getting the information you need. We are all seeking God for different ways we can help advance the kingdom of God and serve our Church communities at the moment. I’d love to have a discussion with you on the above (or anything else!) and see how we can help.
