Client’s viewpoint

“The online service is available to every resident who can use it. Some access it from home, whilst others use it at our job club here in the office. It is a great value way for us to help more residents overcome the challenges of unemployment.”

An affordable case management and job seeking solution for housing associations

Welfare reforms mean that many tenants are under pressure to find jobs or better paid employment. Meanwhile you don’t have the resources to provide one-to-one employment advice to each person. Aptem, previously known as MyWorkSearch, is the market-leading online service that helps you affordably assist tenants into work. Tenants can use Aptem at your job club, or from their home or anywhere with internet access. Meanwhile your advisors can track and support each person’s job search.

 

How does Aptem help?

Aptem takes a jobseeker on a journey and you can specify the contents of this journey to match your particular tenants’ needs. Most journeys will include:

  • Using specially developed assessments to reveal each person’s transferable skills and career interests.
  • Using the power of technology to find relevant vacancies from more than a million jobs, posted on thousands of job boards and employer sites.
  • High quality eLearning to help a person understand the challenges of the employment market and how to secure the best possible job.
  • Building one or more CVs.
  • Using tools to ensure the jobseeker remains organised and focused.

Watch the video below to see John McGlynn of New Charter Group describe how his team use Aptem to help customers improve their job prospects.

Monitoring progress and activity

With Aptem you don’t need separate case management software. As tenants job search, Aptem automatically tracks usage, reminding and encouraging them to stay active. Meanwhile, your advisors can log in and check the extent to which any individual has ­or has not ­been learning how to look for work and actively job-searching.

Your advisors can interact with jobseekers, monitoring tasks as well as suggesting jobs and activities and providing assistance. Most importantly, using Aptem data, you can focus help where it is really needed.

 

Proven results

The multi-award winning Aptem system is proven to work and is already being used to help jobseekers in welfare to work contractors, colleges, vocational training providers and other organisations throughout the UK.
