No Fee Download App For Qualified Skills Work Search!

The introduction of a Government pilot scheme aims to make Europe's largest jobs database available by a 'no fee' mobile phone download app! Operating through JobCentre Plus, the app is designed to be a key tool for people looking for work, by making it easier to search by location, save preferences and job vacancy information finding.Jobseekers will be able to enter their location, or select key areas where they are looking for work and see exactly where vacancies are with Google maps. Work seekers will be able to use GPS to spot jobs around them, whether from home or on the move. The app will also be developed to automatically notify people of new vacancies matching their preferences.The scheme could be a valuable time saving tool for qualified personnel, who have completed a specific trade skills training to become an electrician or work as a plumber, and are looking to enter their particular chosen industry as quickly as possible. The construction industry is still short of many key skill workers around the country on both commercial developments and domestic projects.At AbleSkills, great care is taken to ensure all students embark on the right course for them that fits in with their career goals and work schedules. The recognised and approved entry level for a trainee electrician, for example, is the City & Guilds Electrical 2330 Level 2, progressing onto the City & Guilds NVQ 2356 Level 3. Able Skills also offer a range of related electrician courses for key important knowledge areas an electrician should possess in order to develop valuable career and future service potential.Over 30% of employers in the UK use Jobcentre Plus to advertise their jobs and almost 1 million people search for work through Jobcentre Plus every working day. In one month alone, recently, 60,000 people accessed the website from their mobile phones. The app is available to anyone who uses an iPhone, iPod touch or Google 'Android' phone. Once the app has opened, a keyword search for jobs in a specific area can be typed in or picked up by a GPS signal.
