Universal Jobmatch Training for the unemployed


Universal Jobmatch Training for the unemployed

 

 

F1 Training’s network of learning centres can help you learn how to use this new support tool from DWP.

The course starts with a 1 day course. The morning session will introduce you to the Universal Jobmatch system and show you how to register, upload your CV and ensure that you understand how register your settings correctly. As part of this session will also evaluate your computer skills to see if you need extra help.

At this stage you should already have a CV, if not we will recommend that you see a National Careers Service advisor who will help you build your up-to-date CV.

If you feel that you need some training to develop your computer skills, we can offer you either a 2 or a 4 day course on computer basics. By the end of this training you will be able to use the Universal Jobmatch system, search the Internet, upload your CV to jobsites and be able to email your CV to apply for jobs. If you don’t have an email account, we will help you set one up.

This service is free to the unemployed in receipt of a means tested benefit.

Please email backtowork@f1training.org.uk or call your local centre to book your training.

 

Universal Jobmatch, a new online service available via GOV.UK that promises to make matching the right person to the right job easier than ever before.

The site, which replaces the Jobcentre Plus job search tool, allows both jobseekers and employers to add their details meaning jobseekers can find the perfect opportunity for them and employers can find the perfect candidate.

Jobseekers can upload a CV or build a new one to share with any prospective employers. They can also use the CV to search for jobs matching their experience or interests, and they’ll receive email alerts when any new jobs matching their CV are posted.

Universal Jobmatch aims to make the job hunting process easier and more accurate so if you’re working with jobseekers in your centre, why not try it with them today?
