City, MassHire and Worcester Chamber launch Online Platform to Connect Residents with Employers for COVID-19 Staffing

For Immediate Release: 3/24/2020 12:20 pm

Area partners are joining forces to meet the urgent job demands needed to help battle the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Many area health and community service related essential employers may be unable to get the staff they need to continue providing needed community services.  The City of Worcester, MassHire and the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce have created a quick, easy and free way to connect low-risk people looking for work (including those who’ve been laid off) with essential employers during this crisis. 

Essential employers who have a COVID-19 related job demand (such as drivers, delivery services, industrial cleaners, medical support staff, etc.) can register on the site to have their critical jobs posted and will receive a listing of available job seeker contact information. Job seekers can check the page for employment opportunities and sign up to have their contact information sent to the registered employers.

 “In this time of crisis, there are essential services that must be provided. These tools allow the unemployed to connect with employers that demand continuity of operations,” said City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. “These are opportunities for healthy individuals to assist in jobs that maintain safe workplace conditions.”

Job seekers can sign up at: masshirecentral.com/covid19jobs.

Essential employers can register at: masshirecentral.com/covid19-employerform.
