Employers in Glasgow's IFSD can tap in to a wide range of support services to help them find staff.

The Glasgow Works Employer Engagement Team can assist with vacancy filling, job retention, in-work progression, diversity and equalities.

The Team works closely with employers across Glasgow, offering tailored recruitment solutions to fit the requirements of a variety of organisations and sectors; small, medium or large, at no cost to the business.

This includes screening candidates for suitability, handling telephone applications or interviews, distribution and collection of application forms or CVs, carrying out first stage interviews using criteria agreed with employers and delivering aftercare support to ensure the sustainability of employees in the first few weeks and months in work. For further information call: 0141 204 8327.

And, over at Strathclyde University, details of a new, improved online vacancy system have just been released. This service is free for employers to advertise a wide range of vacancies including, graduate, part-time, temporary or summer internships, directly to students and graduates.  An added benefit is that graduate vacancies can be shared across all universities and colleges participating in the Shared Vacancy Service, saving employers time.  Access the portal at www.strath.ac.uk/careers/employers/advertisingvacancies/
