As the shortfall in skilled labour continues to be an issue for the fenestration industry, the GGF and FENSA combined jobs board is helping to match companies with vacancies to fill, with suitable candidates.

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and FENSA officially launched the jobs board in February and just a few months, the forum is being populated. Chris Beedel, Head of Advocacy & Stakeholder Relations at the GGF explained: “In the relatively short time the jobs board has been live, it has seen 54 jobs posted and 40 applicants looking for work and we are confident that these numbers will continue to grow.

“We created the jobs board because our members told us they were struggling to fill vacancies, and yet we knew there were also plenty of people looking for work. The board that sits on both the GGF and FENSA websites holds current job vacancies as well as profiles of candidates that are looking for work. The system actively matches job seekers with positions that are suited to their skillset and requirements. Of course, the more companies and people that use the jobs board, the more useful it will become as a resource.

“GGF members can post jobs on the board for free, but non-members can still use the facility for a fee. Meanwhile individuals looking for work are notified when new jobs matching their criteria are posted, or when new relevant training courses are launched.”

Chris concluded: “We are pleased to be able to offer a solution for both the companies looking for the skilled workforce they need to survive and thrive, as well as the individuals that are investing a lot of time and effort into finding the right job for them. Allowing the two communities to find each other more easily is a great step forward for the industry.”
