A Jobs Fair offering vacancies in tourism, retail and hospitality is being held by Blaby District Council at Everards Meadows on Wednesday 30 March.
District-based businesses will be showing off the range of jobs they have available and are looking to fill at the event, taking place from 10am-3pm.
Everards are kindly hosting the event at their Everards Meadows site, which has fast become one of the district’s tourism hotspots since its recent opening. Up to three hours parking is available at Everards Meadows on Cooper Way, LE19 2AN.
Companies in attendance include event hosts Everards and includes Rutland Cycling, who have 22 jobs up for grabs across their company. The Marriott Hotel, Palmers Garden Centre and 360 Play will also have a stand at the event.
The Work and Skills Leicestershire team will be at the event to offer help and support for people looking to get into work. Their service gives FREE advice and support, including CV writing skills, interview techniques and learning and training opportunities.
Councillor Sharon Coe, Portfolio Holder for Health, Wellbeing, Community Engagement and Business Support, said: “This event is a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in working within the retail, tourism or hospitality sectors to find their ideal position with the wide variety of businesses attending.
“After the success of our HGV recruitment event last year, we have been very keen to work with different sectors to identify any labour or skills shortages and help improve employment opportunities for both residents and businesses.
“We also wanted to thank Everards for allowing us to use the brilliant Everards Meadows as the host of the event.”
Alberto Costa, MP for South Leicestershire, said: ““I am delighted to see the Jobs Fair taking place at Everards Meadows later this month. With a number of fantastic local businesses taking part, this is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking for a new role, or anyone wishing to get into the retail, hospitality or tourism industries.
“I am so pleased that South Leicestershire has such a vibrant and resilient economy, especially as we continue our recovery from the pandemic, and I am hugely grateful to Blaby District Council and the businesses involved for putting together such a brilliant event.”
Blaby District Council is committed to supporting local people find opportunities in the district and helping businesses to fill vacancies. Last October the Council helped to organise a HGV Recruitment event. More sector-specific events are anticipated to be hosted in the coming months.
