TCHTA Launches TCI"S 1st Career Portal

PROVIDENCIALES, Turks & Caicos Islands; Friday, August 02, 2013 - A stronger synergy between job seekers and employers in TCI's Hospitality and Tourism sectors was established today when TCHTA launched the nation's first career portal, TCHTAcareers.com.

TCHTAcareers.com has been developed to connect the nation's job seekers and employers through a comprehensive yet user friendly platform. The effective and resourceful web portal will give member employers upon sign up the ability to advertise job postings and source potential candidates. The web- based portal will also make the job search easier for Turks and Caicos Islanders, including those studying and/or living abroad. As a registered user of TCHTAcareers.com job seekers can receive email job alerts, apply for vacancies, manage applications and store resumes securely online, all free of charge. Job seekers can also post their resumes on the site's database making it conveniently accessible by any potential employer at any given time.

During today's demonstration to Government officials and local media representatives, TCHTA's Executive Director Stacy Cox explained, "The web portal was conceptualised and developed to transform lives by connecting talent to great companies and provides a fresh approach to recruitment marketing, through its features and functionality. Our TCHTAcareers.com special committee spearheaded by Human Resources guru Bridgette Thomas of BNC Consulting Group, identified the need to develop another vehicle by which job seekers could apply for advertised positions and a channel by which recruiters could manage their recruitment campaigns effectively and successfully."

Cox also noted that, "TCHTAcareers.com TCHTAcareers.com is not a recruitment agency but a careers site. This means that we will advertise vacancies on behalf of employers and recruitment agencies who are looking for employees. Companies must still advertise their job vacancies using traditional print media as per the labour policy but our new web portal will provide them with another channel to reach and engage with top talent."

TCHTA's President Michel Neutelings who has made the local employment drive one of TCHTA's top priorities explained, "We wanted to ensure that there is significant exposure and outreach for those unemployed Turks and Caicos Islanders to be able to efficiently apply for jobs in the Hotel and Tourism sectors. TCHTAcareers.com will make this possible and we encourage all job seekers to take advantage of this new innovative initiative."
