Job Central Simcoe Muskoka is a project developed by Simcoe Muskoka Workforce Development Board (SMWDB) in partnership with the County of Simcoe Economic Development Office based on feedback from employers, regional economic development offices and job seekers. It is free a one-stop shop for employers to post employment opportunities and for job seekers to find those opportunities within the region.
The feedback we received from our community...
that job and employee seeking can be difficult due to the vast array of vehicles and styles of job postings. For example: job postings can be found on dedicated sites such as Workopolis, they can be found on private employment agency websites such as Manpower, or public employment website such as Employment Service Providers or on the employers websites themselves. The employer may share the posting via their social media network or purchase an advertisement in print media. Many of these sites are limited geographically or restricted to certain employment sectors, which complicates the search process for job seekers and the advertising process for employers.
Any job seeker and employer will benefit from expanded reach to match skills sets with positions available. Employees currently commuting outside their home region will have the opportunity to lessen their environmental impact and expand the social capital they can invest in their quality of life and that of their community. It can become the go-to vehicle for small and medium size enterprises to directly post their listings at no cost. Further, it could provide a streamlined process for employers and job seekers to access Employment Ontario services who can support their employment needs at no cost.
This site was built for the County of Simcoe and District of Muskoka to bridge the gap between employers seeking the right candidate and the job seeker looking for an opportunity to work within the region.
