Master Builders Association (MBA North) is launching a Jobs Portal on its website from early February 2014 to extend its services to MBA North members and the wider public.
Sarah Mnyandu, education, training & transformation administrator of MBA North, says the new Jobs Portal will offer students who have completed their studies the opportunity to publicise their CVs online, for perusal by the Association’s members and anyone else visiting the MBA North website. “This will give the construction industry the opportunity to see new and existing talent available. This opportunity is for students who have completed their studies at Universities, Colleges, or any other Training Institutions. Employers will then have the opportunity to contact these students directly and invite them for job interviews,” says Mnyandu.
Curriculum Vitaes received for inclusion in the Jobs Portal will be categorised according to field, qualification, degrees and diplomas. ]
“The Jobs Portal will also allow employers to post any staff vacancies they might have. Students and other job seekers will then have the opportunity to apply directly to these employers for the positions listed. This too will be sorted in appropriate categories or fields for easy navigation.”
Although not immediately available or active on the website, MBA North proposes to in future allow space where interested job seekers and employers can register their career needs – whether seeking or offering jobs – and those registered will then be notified of vacancies available in their field.
Mnyandu emphasises that this new MBA North service is not in any way similar to the work of recruitment agencies. “We are providing a network scenario where employer and employee can link up. MBA North sees this as an extended service to our members in response to the many calls we receive regarding employment available and people seeking jobs,” she adds.
