Recruitment Support

Our goal at EARN is to provide you with the knowledge, resources and the support you need to increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities. One of the tools that we use is Magnet. Magnet uses a blind recruitment model that can job-match people with opportunities reflecting their skills, preferences and talent. It also allows self-declaration and targeted matching towards 6 specific diversity groups, including persons with disabilities.

To get started you can either create a free account to post your jobs, or connect with EARN’s job match coordinator, Saiema Zaman (szaman@unitedwayottawa.ca), to have the job posted for you as part of our recruitment supports.

We are excited to be partnering with Magnet which is a not-for-profit social innovation project founded by Ryerson University, in partnership with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce. It is a collaborative hub of post-secondary institutions, not-for-profits, government, labour, and industry partners working together on one common platform, towards one common goal: to address unemployment and under-employment of Canadians.

Magnet is just one of the tools we use to support you. Please contact our Job Match Coordinator for more information, Saiema Zaman (szaman@unitedwayottawa.ca). As a reminder, EARN’s recruitment supports also include:

Job Match Conference Calls:
EARN hosts monthly Job Match Conference Calls where employers share information regarding current and/or upcoming jobs and where employment service providers highlight potential candidates. The goal is to match job seekers with current and/ or upcoming opportunities.

Job Advertisement:
EARN can distribute your job posting to our network of over 25 employment service providers and our college and university partners; highlight the requirements of the position; instruct the candidates to apply via your preferred process; and provide you with the names of candidates who are associated with our EARN partners.

Tailored Recruitment and Applicant Pre-Screening:
In addition to the above, EARN can receive applications on your behalf, conduct a first round of pre-screening and send you the most qualified applicants (or direct them to apply through your website). We can work with you to determine how best to support you.

Tailored Recruitment Events:
EARN can also host and/or organize events for your organization, inviting the most qualified candidates and presenting you with the opportunity to conduct a first round of interviews and continue with your process as appropriate.
