Civil servants, and especially those engaged in social services, have similar needs all over Europe to access and elaborate information on training and employment offers in order to deliver the best possible service to those who have the right. This work extends the Web Services that collect and offer up-to-date information on training and job offers from different web sources matched to the needs of each case (Karadimas and Papastamatiou 2008) to address the Grid architecture. Grid architecture can be defined as a layer of secure networked services that allow users single sign-on access to a distributed collection of data resources, offering up-to-date information on training and job offers from different web resources. The proposed architecture, as it will include personal data that must be secured from unauthorized access, will be based on the Open Grid Services Architecture (OGSA) that defines standard mechanisms for creating, naming, and discovering transient Grid service instances.
