Sudbury-based Spark Employment Services (Spark) assists job-seekers to secure employment through its various programs. For over 30 years, Spark has helped its clients identify career objectives and determine job search direction. Those looking to enhance their employability skills or upgrade their skill set will benefit from Spark’s wide range of programs, which support individuals in finding their next job opportunity. The organization aims to help its clients succeed.
Spark’s Organizational Change Manager, Jessica Suban Hamilton says, “For anything we do, there is a reason why. This why, which is sometimes referred to as a purpose, is what helps us persevere and keeps us striving forward through uncertainty. Knowing why we work in the place, field, or industry we do and understanding the meaning we attach to work and its place in our lives is pre-cursor to success.”
She adds, “Everyone benefits from supportive relationships in identifying changes we want to make in our lives.”
The purpose of Spark’s employment services programs is to work with clients and provide them with the support and guidance along their path to change. Suban Hamilton says, “Our goal is to be aligned with clients’ level of readiness and navigate them to precisely the supports that will move them forward. Each participant completes an intake assessment which provides us with the detailed information necessary to get started.”
Working with one of Spark’s qualified counsellors, clients can identify a career fit. Counsellors will also help them to increase self-awareness, develop a targeted résumé and prepare a job search strategy to secure meaningful employment. Those looking for a career change are able to engage in supported job search opportunities and career exploration as well as access upskilling and retraining programs to prepare for the future.
For employers, Spark also offers human resources services. From recruitment to on-the-job training, it provides placement and job trial opportunities to those experiencing traditional barriers to the marketplace. Training subsidies and supports are also accessible.
In accordance with the province-wide lockdown, Spark’s physical office will be closed until further notice. It will, however, continue to offer services remotely. Ready to get started? Contact Spark Employment Services at 705-671-2544 or visit their website for more information.
