Online job search rolled out across Northwich and Winsford

Northwich Guardian: The team demonstrates the new system. The team demonstrates the new system.

JOBSEEKERS in Northwich and Winsford are being offered a pioneering new way to find work.

An online UK-wide job search system is being rolled out to give residents quick and efficient access to vacancies.

The Kaonix system is available at community venues across Northwich and Winsford, including libraries and Work Zones.

It is free to use and jobseekers are given the support of a trained advisor to help them register and use the system.

Cheshire West and Chester Council’s (CWAC) Northwich and Winsford locality team has been working with Jobcentre Plus, Mid Cheshire College, Cheshire Community Development Trust and Weaver Vale Housing Trust to roll out Kaonix.

Clr Herbert Manley, CWAC’s executive member for growth and innovation, said: “The internet is transforming the way people find jobs, however, the sheer choice of websites can make online job hunting a daunting experience.

“Kaonix is straightforward to use and enables residents to quickly identify jobs from a vast database that match their skills and experience – as well as offering many other useful features.

“I am sure it will prove a valuable tool for jobseekers in Northwich and Winsford and complement the work of the council and our partners to help residents find job opportunities and reduce the number of people who are unemployed.”

Kaonix can be accessed at Northwich, Winsford and Wharton libraries, Northwich and Winsford Work Zones, Cheshire Community Development Trust, in Navigation Road, Mid Cheshire College’s Hartford Campus, and Weaver Vale Housing Trust, in Gadbrook Park.

This is a fine initiative for job seekers, however i would still like to see our young people leaving school/college with the necessary skills to take up some jobs. There must be more training available for such as engineering etc.

You have to go to a place like the Zone at Northwich train station to register before you can use the site

Sorry I must be missing something here.

In what way is this pioneering. It is described as online, yet apparently cannot be accessed without going to one of the places listed. That's not exactly online is it? and speaking of online surely there are plenty of other job search websites that are truly online and can be accessed from anywhere with internet access including the Job Centres own website.

Whats the point? Why are CWAC wasting time and money backing and promoting something that is not as accessible as what is already widely available
