A vital support is the supplier commitment to give these job-seekers a chance to apply for positions ahead of the general public. This support not only reaches the individuals, but also the community and local economy.
Local supplier initiative and involvment is of utmost importance in understanding the skillsets of potential employees, and offering life-changing opportunities to job-seekers.
How it works
Both supplier and purchaser partners are able to post job openings with the Social Purchasing Portal.
Simply click on the link below and fill out the form or send a posting via email. SPP staff will be alerted via email that you have submitted a posting.
The posting is circulated to agencies who are partners of the Employment Exchange Committee (EEC). These agencies match up clients with the postings, and these job-seeking clients apply to the position.

Benefits of hiring employment agency clients
Pre-screened & Matched to Positions. Each of the agencies pre-screens clients and determines the best match between the strengths of job-seekers and the positions posted by a supplier partner.
Strong Relationships SPP staff and Employment Exchange Committee Coordinator keep connected to the supplier and job-seeker to ensure a successful application and interview process, and continue to maintain this relationship after a potential applicant has been hired.
Viewpoint of the Purchaser When considering purchasing from a local business, price is not always the only bottom line for the corporate body or public individual. The values of a supplier business can also influence a purchaser partner’s decisions about buying habits. A purchaser may well choose one business over another if that supplier demonstrates a commitment to the social economy as well as the capital economy. Signing on as an SPP supplier sends a clear message of responsibility and excellent business ethics to the purchasing partner and general public.
