A new Irish jobs website has been launched, aimed at helping those who have temporarily or permanently lost their job due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Sigmar Recruitment has launched the CovidResponseJobs site, which highlights available jobs and provides free training and resources for jobseekers.
It allows employers to post jobs and hire jobseekers directly, while allowing jobseekers to apply directly to employers and receive daily job alerts.
Meanwhile, tips on topics such as video interviewing, digital collaboration and remote working are also available to users.
The free to use website is also designed to be easily accessible for people in their own homes, amid the public health advice for people to stay at home wherever possible.
Sigmar COO Robert Mac Giolla Phádraig said: “Our aim is to connect people who have been impacted by short-term business closures with employers who have seen rising demand for front line staff, those in healthcare and those needed to keeping Ireland’s supply chains operating.
“The economy has temporarily stalled and the traditional recruitment process is on its head.
“However, the current pandemic has created new positions especially in retail, distribution, manufacturing and the health sector, to include many administrative, customer support and back office roles.”
The site is available at www.covidresponsejobs.com.
