We make strong matches for both candidates and employers by using a unique combination of recruitment expertise, industry knowledge, and skill-building workshops to strengthen candidates’ employment prospects. Services are provided to individuals aged 18 and over in all five boroughs of New York City.
EDSI was awarded its contract to operate the Staten Island Workforce1 Career Center in April 2011. Our process-driven methods quickly helped to maximize organization and efficiency at the Staten Island Center, and have allowed us to continuously adapt and improve over time.
Based on our success, this contract was expanded within the first year of operation. In September 2011, the Workforce1 South Shore Expansion Center in Staten Island was created, and a new location was secured in February 2012. In addition to serving customers in a different geographic area of the borough, the Expansion Center staff focuses on placing work-ready candidates in employment opportunities as well as collaborating with NYC Business Solutions to serve the staffing needs of small businesses throughout Staten Island.
The Workforce1 South Shore Expansion Center offers career candidates access specialized employment opportunities with mid-wage salaries. Center staff focuses on sourcing for the right candidates and match them with the best opportunities.
Membership services are available to all jobseekers interested in improving their skills, and finding the right employment opportunity.
