Roles and Responsibilities for Employers

The Director of Op@Work understands the importance of having the best candidates employed at all levels of an organization, and that the success of your endeavor relies heavily on the performance of your team members. We value your success just as much as you do; that’s why the Director of Op@Work promises to collaborate with employers to select the right candidates for an opportunity through rigorous and robust evaluation processes to determine the most qualified candidate(s) from the pool of program registrants. Op@Work works closely with employers to ensure that the match selects a candidate who shares your organization’s values, work ethic, and core vision.
The New Brunswick Military Family Resource Centre [NBMFRC] has developed Op@Work in hopes of helping both employers and military family members in our community.
The Op@Work service is free to both employers and program registrants; the service of the Op@Work Director are complimentary for the employers by the NBMFRC.
Expectations and responsibilities of the NBMFRC:
The New Brunswick Military Family Resource Centre promises to collaborate with employers to help match suitable candidates of a military family with submitted employment opportunities. We will put our best foot forward to ensure the best fit in talent, skills, and experience for your organization.
The NBMFRC will recruit, collect, and screen information submitted by program participants to then share with employers the top qualified candidates (normally 3) for the open competition.
Should the employer require standardized testing as part of the hiring process, the NBMFRC can be the party and location responsible to administer the test for the candidates. Upon completion, the results and original documentation will be sent to the employer for consideration.
Op@Work and the NBMFRC will in no way be responsible or liable for the referred candidate(s).
Expectations and responsibilities of an employer:
The employer should notify the NBMFRC of employment opportunities within their organization for which they wish to consider candidates from the Op@Work service.
The success of both your search and Op@Work relies heavily on good collaboration and open communication between your hiring party and the Director of Op@Work.
The employer is expected to consider the referred candidate(s) for interview and potential hiring.
Should the employer require standardized testing as part of the hiring process, and selects the NBMFRC Op@Work as the party responsible to administer the testing, the employer is expected to provide the Director of Op@Work with clear instructions, guidelines, and materials required to administer and return the standardized test.
Employers will still be responsible and liable for the hiree (Job Procedures, Management, Policies of company, orientation, safety procedures and equipment, attendance policies, etc.).
The success of this service relies on heavily on feedback of users, the NBMFRC appreciates the employer’s input and feedback to better the service.
Upon hiring, the referral is considered closed and the candidate becomes an employee of the company that has done the hiring.
