A new and FREE way for your business to recruit new staff

Steps to Work ended in Northern Ireland in May 2014, and from October 2014 Roe Valley Community Education Forum has joined forces with EOS NI, in the delivery of the Department for Employment and Learning's NEW Steps 2 Success employability programme.

Steps 2 Success is very different to previous initiatives delivered by RVCEF.  The thrust of the new programme is EMPLOYMENT.  Our focus will essentially be MATCHMAKING clients' (the unemployed participating in Steps 2 Success) skills, qualifications and experience - to JOBS!

While there are now very limited placement and training opportunities, as a subcontractor for the Steps 2 Success programme, we will have direct access to a large pool of unemployed people in Limavady Borough, who are actively looking for work.

FREE Recruitment Services for Businesses
So whether it's an office administrator, care worker or site labourer that you're looking to employ, you can count on Roe Valley Community Education Forum to find the right person for your business.  Our dedicated Employment Consultants will thoroughly screen and only send to you, candidates who have the skills, qualities and experience suited to your vacancies.  All this, and it's FREE.
