Under the 1950 Employment and Training Act, the Department for Communities (DfC) has a statutory obligation to assist employers to obtain suitable employees. As part of DfC’s role in meeting this obligation it is imperative that it has the facility to conduct activities which have the scope to reach and assist those who are out of work, into employment. Due to the global Covid-19 health crisis, face to face recruitment events which bring employers and jobseekers together, were unable to take place because of social distancing requirements and size of gatherings. This policy seeks to procure a suite of virtual products to provide on-line Job Fairs and Recruitment Events.
