Over 400 jobseekers turned out to last year’s event, so the Jobs and Skills Fair is returning to Fosse Park on Wednesday 2nd September.
The free event will run on the mezzanine floor above the Food Court in Fosse Park from 11am until 3pm and sets to bring together local employers, job-seekers and support services all under one roof to help local unemployed people into work or training.
Councillor Tony Greenwood, portfolio holder for Planning, Economic Development and Housing Strategy at Blaby District Council, said:
“Local businesses are encouraged to reserve a place at the event to reap the benefits of extensive event marketing and promotion, a prime location with a high footfall and local networking opportunities.
Jobs Fairs are an excellent opportunity to meet your prospective employees in person as well as being a low-cost solution to your recruitment problems.”
Blaby District Council, working in partnership with Leicestershire County Council and Job Centre Plus are organising the event hosted by Fosse Park.
Anyone who has job vacancies to fill or a training service to provide, can contact A.K Khan, Economic Development Officer at Blaby District Council on 0116 272 7765 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a free space.
Places are limited so book early to confirm a place!
