News : 800 Jobs on Offer at Sunderland Event
Sunderland City, UK, Feb 2, 2015 -- A recruitment fair in Sunderland is offering more than 800 jobs to candidates by allowing them to demonstrate their potential to more than ten employers in one day.
Shine Sunderland, which has been organised by recruitment and training company CCP with support from Sunderland City Council, will "turn the traditional recruitment process on its head".
Contact centre companies will be taking part in the event which is one of Sunderland's largest sectors, employing more than 14,000 staff.
CCP chief executive Shona Harper said: "If candidates were to apply individually to each of those employers it would take a long time. Similarly, it would take a very long time for those employers to assess that many people through the normal recruitment process.
"This is a very efficient method, and the feedback from candidates has been superb; some people received four or five expressions of interest."
It will be the second Shine event in a planned series of showcases, with the first having taken place in Newcastle in October. Eleven employers in the customer service and call centre sectors took part, with more than 200 candidates finding a new job.
Sunderland City Council leader councillor Paul Watson said: "Sunderland is known for the strength of its candidates in the contact centre and customer services sectors, and Shine gives jobseekers a real opportunity to find a suitable role much more efficiently than if they used the traditional channels.
