Re­source cen­tre has jobs for high-fly­ers

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE -

WITH THE credit crunch threat­en­ing a down­turn in the job mar­ket, the Em­ploy­ment Re­source Cen­tre is ap­peal­ing to for­mer clients who have made it in busi­ness to re­con­nect with the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

The ERC, which has helped over 7,000 un­em­ployed Jews back into the job mar­ket, has set up an Alumni Net­work with the goal of find­ing vol­un­teer men­tors and net­work­ing as­sis­tance.

ERC chair­man Tr­isha Ward hoped that those it had helped to suc­cess would want “to give some­thing back. In the cur­rent un­sta­ble eco­nomic cli­mate, the role of the ERC is even more vi­tal.

“It is cru­cial that we con­tinue to pro­vide sup­port so our clients re­turn to work as quickly as pos­si­ble.”

The re­source cen­tre aids those who have lost their jobs, re­cent grad­u­ates, peo­ple con­tem­plat­ing a ca­reer change or re­turn­ing to work af­ter rais­ing a fam­ily or di­vorce.
