Strategically positioned on the campus of Cumberland County College, is the County’s Center of Workforce and Economic Development, which assists job seekers and employers.
Services provided at this new complex include job recruiting and placement, access to occupational training, skills assessment, job search assistance, career guidance and basic education. To assist the business community, the Department offers employee recruitment, pre-qualification and on-the-job training services along with business resources such as hiring events and customized training.
This 30,000 square-foot facility, which opened in Fall of 2015, was financed and developed by the Cumberland County Improvement Authority – which now owns the facility. The effort represents another project developed, financed and managed by the CCIA to sustain the economic future of the county and its resident businesses.
Also housed in the building to compliment these services are the Cumberland County Improvement Authority’s Economic Development Services, the New Jersey Small Business Development Center, the New Jersey Department of Labor & Workforce Development, and the Cumberland County Office of Veterans Affairs.
