The Sarnia-Lambton Workforce Development Board says its “Work in Sarnia-Lambton” interactive tool kit has been well received in the community since launching in June.

The one-stop shop for job postings was designed to help those struggling to find employment during the pandemic.

It collects information from 23 job boards and posts them all in one spot.

Interim Executive Director Mikelle Bryson-Campbell said there are about 700 local jobs currently waiting to be filled.

“There’s a whole wide range of jobs. We see a lot in the healthcare fields, personal support workers, developmental service workers, there’s a lot of jobs in human resources and things like that. Definitely a wide variety.”

Bryson-Campbell said there’s also a census map for those starting up a business which includes information on things like population, average age, and demographics.

She said just over 2,000 people have accessed the tool.
