Goodwill Staffing Services to Host Hiring Event
Welcoming Job Seekers Back to Work with Training, Resources, and Benefits
Wilmington, DE – Employers throughout the First State are staffing up in preparation for the loosening of COVID-19 guidelines on May 21, and anticipated demand over the summer months. To support businesses in meeting the demand, Goodwill Staffing Services, a trusted partner in the business community and program of the non-profit Goodwill of Delaware & Delaware County, will host an outdoor Hiring Fair on Tuesday, May 11 at the Goodwill store in the Rodney Village Shopping Center in Dover, Delaware.
“While many people may have been reluctant or unable to return to the workforce, there are still many people looking for good jobs,” shared Goodwill of Delaware President and CEO, Colleen Morrone. “Our advice to people is don’t wait. As the landscape around COVID, jobs, recovery and benefits continues to evolve, you don’t want to be in that last group of people looking for work. The job market favors job seekers right now so now is the time to get registered with us (Goodwill Staffing), polish up your skills, or work with us to acquire new digital and soft skills, and land the best job now.”
Goodwill Staffing Services hires for an array of roles including clerical/administrative, janitorial, drivers, and supply, storage and distribution. Full-time (30 hours/week) Goodwill Staffing employees are eligible for medical, dental, vision and 401k benefits, plus paid time off and seven paid holidays per calendar year.
While the hiring fair will be focused on opportunities through Goodwill Staffing, team members will also be recruiting talent for Goodwill’s retail and ecommerce, industrial (janitorial and construction), and administrative programs. Job seekers will also have the opportunity to learn about Goodwill’s workforce development programs which support successful re-entry into the workforce through free training and case management.
