Jobs Fair and recruitment event to be held at the College
Shrewsbury College and Jobcentre Plus are joining forces to offer help and guidance to anyone in Shropshire seeking employment, including temporary and Christmas vacancy opportunities.
Applicants can even apply on the spot!
The jobs fair follows on from the success of a similar event held at the College in April, when more than 50 employers attended along with hundreds of prospective candidates.
The jobs fair will take place, on Friday, 25 September, from 10am until 1pm. People of any age wanting more advice, support and information about employment are invited to attend.
Employers with current job vacancies will be attending the event and will be accepting applications on the day. Staff will be on hand from the College and Jobcentre Plus to answer questions regarding career options, progression routes, retraining and funding, as well as offering writing tips for applications and CVs.
Attendees considering retraining or enrolling onto a course at the College will be able to sign-up on the day. Staff will also be available to discuss Traineeships, and Apprenticeships which the College offers in a range of sectors and most of which you can start at any time throughout the year.
Laura Jeffrey, Employability Co-Ordinator in The Agency at Shrewsbury College, said: “We were really pleased with the response we got at the last jobs fair. More people than we were expecting attended and the employers who came were delighted with the calibre of candidates.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for people looking for a job, wanting advice or considering retraining, to get valuable information and support from our specialist staff and local employers. It is also a great chance for employers looking to fill vacancies to speak to potential employees.”
Employers with current job vacancies or who are considering hiring in the near future are invited to attend the event and can book an exhibition stand for free, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org Priority will be given to employers with live vacancies.
