Traders help traders & groceries assistants (cross sectoral personnel placement platforms)


"Job initiative aimed at securing the employment of as many workers from the non-food trade by temporary employment in the food trade. Non-food retailers who wish to temporarily employ parts of their staff in the food trade can use the job platform of the Austrian Retail Association. The consent of employees concerned is necessary. The platform also serves as a mediation platform between retailers and workers as - food/near-food traders temporarily lack workers and - private individuals search for temporarily open jobs. The groceries assistants – labour power for the food chain. In order to counteract the labour shortage in the food industry and during the harvest, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Tourism and Regions established a central platform for the registration of potential workers for the placement of workers. This also enables affected companies in the food chain to register their personnel requirements."
