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!
A series of employment fairs aimed at giving people the skills to get back into work are being held across Blaby district in February.
The Back to Work in 2011 events, organised by Blaby District Council, will see agencies provide information and advice to give the unemployed and those facing redundancy a better chance of finding work in the coming year.
People attending can get advice on training and adult education courses, interview and job application skills as well as information on volunteering options, work experience and starting a new business.
Events will take place in the following locations:
Living Rock Church, Stoney Stanton – Wednesday 2 February, 10am -12noon.
