What are the job placement?
Job placement are one of the basic labour market services offered by Poviat and Voivodeship Labour Offices to the jobseekers and employers.
If you are a jobseeker, within this service you can obtain information on job offers, organised labour exchanges and career fairs, and also opportunities to use other forms of assistance offered by the Office if you need more than offered by job placement.
If you are an employer, within the job placement you can benefit from the Office's help to look for workers. This entails support when preparing a job offer, publishing it and selecting appropriate candidates who will be referred to an interview. On request, within service implementation, the Office can organise a labour exchange for you or invite you to participate in the organised career fairs as an exhibitor.
What type of assistance is offered by the Office within this service?
Within the employment service, the Labour Offices perform many tasks for their customers, including the unemployed, jobseekers and employers.
The most important activities undertaken within this service include obtaining job offers from employers and posting them in the Office seats and in the Central Job Offer Database, as well as using other mass media.
Accepting the job offer and its publication entails the need to provide an appropriate candidate for the job by the Office. Office employees implementing tasks within the service provide assistance to the unemployed and jobseekers in relation to finding appropriate employment by providing information on job offers and referring them to employers for an interview on the one hand, and provide assistance for the employers to help them find appropriate workers, by referring people who meet the requirements stipulated in the job offer on the other.
Office employees initiate and organise meetings of the unemployed and jobseekers with employers during labour exchanges and career fairs.
An important task is also to inform customers about the current situation and anticipated changes on the local labour market, as well as provide information on the rights and obligations resulting from registering in the Office to the unemployed.
