Filling temporary positions can be a real challenge for all employers but particularly for larger organisations, which have to plan for many types of employee leave, short-term projects and seasonal events. In existence since August 2013, UniJobs was established to help the public sector meet the staffing challenges associated with temporary job vacancies. By placing staff across public bodies on a purely cost recoupment basis, UniJobs offers the public sector a tailor-made service and provides employers with the flexibility to fulfil short-term requirements in a wide variety of challenging positions.
An exciting and innovative organisation, UniJobs has evolved quickly since its foundation, and we look forward to growing apace over the coming years. With the primary objective of providing flexible, cost-effective workforce solutions across the public sector, UniJobs began its journey by focusing on the higher education sector. The shared service model that has emerged from this project will serve as a blueprint for future success and can be replicated throughout the public sector.
As chairman of the board I would like to thank my board colleagues for their continuing work and support. I also wish to extend my thanks to the staff of UniJobs for the work they have put into developing the organisation thus far. The number and quality of job opportunities that have already been offered to the many employees of UniJobs are highly encouraging and set the scene for a bright future for all those involved with this great initiative.
