Services for employers
Employers - Are you looking for the ideal employee?
Our YWCA WorkBC Employment Services Centres offer a variety of free services to employers to help you find your ideal employee, including:
Access to thousands of motivated job seekers
YWCA's WorkBC Employment Services Centres work with thousands of job seekers each year, offering workshops and one-to-one consultations to prepare them for the job market and keep them up to date with the latest hiring trends.
Our job seekers have diverse levels of experience, from recent graduates looking for their first job to experienced professionals who are looking to build their careers.
Free job posting boards
Send us your job openings, and we will post them on our job boards - viewed by thousands of job seekers each week. We also post a selection of job postings on our website, updated bi-weekly, which sees more than 5,000 views per month.
Hiring fairs and tailored recruiting events
YWCA hiring fairs are attended by Metro Vancouver's top employers, both large and small. Participation is free and the YWCA covers all advertising costs (a $1,500 value for FREE).
Our employment centres also host tailored individual recruiting events to assist employers with their more immediate recruiting needs. The space is provided free and the events are promoted internally within the organization. As an employer, you handle any external advertising and promotion for the event.
Contact the YWCA WorkBC Centre closest to you for an invite to our next hiring fair or for more information on organizing an individual recruiting event.
Industry panels and information interviews
Our employment centres host a variety of industry panels and assist in setting up one-to-one informational interviews with companies and industry experts. If you are interested in speaking at one of our industry panels or participating in an informational interview, please contact one of our centres to learn more.
Placement Services Program
Our Placement Services program connects employers with motivated, enthusiastic job seekers from our YWCA WorkBC centres. By working closely with employers to understand your needs, we are able to offer a FREE service similar to a placement agency: we will pre-screen candidates, submit tailored resumes and offer you support throughout the hiring process.
