Quicker, slicker route to Cardiff Works

Cardiff Works, the Council's in-house recruitment agency, has stream-lined its application processes to make it quicker and easier for job candidates to apply for temporary roles.

Applicants interested in registering to apply for any of the wide range of temporary positions within the authority, available via Cardiff Works, can complete an online application form and assessment - speeding up the process that previously required applicants to attend an assessment in person.

Cabinet Member for Finance, Performance and Modernisation, Cllr Chris Weaver, said: "The Council is committed to helping people into good jobs and careers, and to removing barriers people face to getting into a job. At the moment, we have a wide range of temporary vacancies within the authority and registering with Cardiff Works offers applicants the flexibility to try different roles, learn new skills and open doors to other opportunities, which could lead to longer term employment.

"Jobs are available not just in admin or clerical roles - there's a huge variety of opportunities right now that reflect the wide range of services that the Council delivers across the city.

"Making it easier to register with Cardiff Works,  by enabling people to complete the application form and take the assessment online, will, we hope, encourage even more people to give Cardiff Works a go."

Temporary vacancies with the Council are updated regularly on the Cardiff Works website site also provides a wide range of employability advice and support  to help job seekers and career changers to gain the skills, experience and knowledge that will help them transition into sustainable employment in a sector that suits them.
