NECC members are being encouraged to take advantage of an innovative service to provide additional workforce skills by using the expertise of the spouses of those serving in the armed forces.
Recruit For Spouses, an online resource connecting armed forces spouses with employers, was established by the wife of a serving soldier to provide businesses with the opportunity to employ spouses at all skill levels.
The organisation can offer staff at a variety of levels from shop floor up to the boardroom, for both local regional jobs and working from home.
Recruit For Spouses puts these highly capable women and men in touch with employers willing to seize the initiative and tap into this skilled and diverse workforce while supporting the Armed Forces. The organisation works worldwide with reputable companies in order to bridge the gap between employers and spouses.
Service spouses are a vast untapped workforce, qualified and willing to work from home, and Recruit For Spouses offers employers an effective way to access their many talents. Businesses have the chance to exclusively access a vast team of highly skilled and highly motivated potential staff. With workers at all levels from all types of businesses, there is certain to be someone on our books who can do the best job they can for your company.
Military spouses are by nature flexible and therefore ideally suited to short-term contracts and any worries about the transient and unpredictable movement of military life can easily be overcome using a virtual recruitment and working environment.
NECC chief executive James Ramsbotham feels the service would provide valuable expertise to many businesses in the region. He said:
"Recruit For Spouses is a terrific initiative which not only benefits the spouses of service men and women but also businesses looking to strengthen their workforce.
"This initiative will allow many businesses to access vital business skills, on a very flexible basis, that may not have previously been possible.
"I would urge all businesses, regardless of their size, to consider if they could take advantage of the wealth of skilled staff available to not only help their business, but also support an incredibly worthy cause."
Although the service is not due to be fully launched until the turn of the year, an initial 200 spouses are already signed up to the service and are available to work now.
