NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — The Hamilton County Economic Development Corp. has partnered with Hamilton County Tourism and OneZone, Noblesville and Westfield chambers of commerce to create a job-recovery workforce program.
It’s a website with immediate job openings to help people who are out of work during the impact of COVID-19. The website lists temporary, part-time and full-time job positions.
Bob DuBois with the Noblesville chamber told News 8 the business group has received many calls from residents who are unemployed.
“We want to make it as easy as possible. Often different organizations have their own systems. We want to make sure that we’re sending people to one simple platform,” said DuBois.
Portillo’s on 116th Street east of I-69 in Fishers is hiring a person to work the drive-thru and make deliveries for the fast-food restaurant and the Starbucks coffee house also on 116th Street.
In the county, more than a dozen businesses are trying to hire people. Aldi’s, Walmart and Kroger are looking for cashiers and other employees.
“We also have a number of manufacturers that are manufacturing products in the health care field that, they need people today, and those are excellent jobs with excellent career potential,” DuBois said.
DuBois added that Noblesville government leaders have been working with employers who are looking for employees. The leaders hope the website can help many Hoosiers during this tough time.
“It is updated every day, sometimes, multiple times a day, and so we’re encouraging people that if you’ve checked today and there wasn’t anything for you, check tomorrow,” DuBois said.
