New GGF & FENSA Jobs Board

Chris Bedeel of the GGF

The GGF and FENSA have launched a new dedicated industry jobs board that will sit on both organisations’ websites and actively match those searching for work, with businesses looking for new talent.

Chris Beedel, head of advocacy & stakeholder relations at the GGF says: “We understand from our members that it can be incredibly difficult to find the right people to fill vacancies in a business, yet there are plenty of people looking for work, that is right for them. That is why we have created a dedicated jobs board that can help to marry the two. It has been designed to suit both employers and employees with applicants able to create profiles on the system to make introductions between potential employers and employees even easier.”

Lis Clarke, operations director at FENSA adds: “Sitting on both the GGF and FENSA websites for easy access, we believe this is the only jobs board of its kind in the industry with the functionality to add skill and qualification requirements on jobs and employee profiles so that users can automatically see when there is a match. Notifications can be sent to those posting a job when applications are made and to those looking for work when suitable jobs are posted.

“Users will also be able to see new training courses that are available to further their careers.”  


Who can post jobs?

Members of both the GGF and FENSA can post jobs to the site free of charge. Non-members can also post jobs to the site for a fee – but it would work out cheaper to join the GGF.

“The market unfortunately remains in a period of instability with continued uncertainty in the wider economic and political context,” says Beedel. “So it is even more important for businesses to have the skillsets they need to survive and succeed. Likewise with the cost-of-living crisis still looming, the more people we can help to find work, the better.”
