GeekTalent brings forward app launch in response to Covid-19

Sunderland-based provider of skills, talent and recruitment software services GeekTalent has brought forward the launch of a new app with the aim of supporting those looking to reskill and secure a new job during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The GoCareer app is free to all users for the first three months and allows users to identify their core skills and build a unique CV. The app then matches skills to a job role and enables students and job seekers to apply for suitable positions.

GoCareer has partnered with NCFE to support the roll out of the app.

Dominic Murphy, founder of GeekTalent, said: We brought the launch forward because we feel it’s a really useful tool for those who may have lost their job or be looking for a new role as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. We really hope that the new app will help both job seekers and students to find work in these uncertain times.

"One of the main goals of the app is to help job seekers to identify their transferable skills and explore the opportunities that match those skills. The app has been designed to be as accessible as possible to everyone who needs it."
