Popular Jobs Fair returns

Skills FairWith the chance to find employment and training opportunities for people of all ages, the Fosse Park Jobs and Skills fair returns on Wednesday 24 May.

Organised by Blaby District Council, the fair takes place from 10:30am-2pm on the mezzanine level of the Food Court at Fosse Park. The popular event brings together local employers and support services under one roof.

Over 350 people attended last year’s event with 32 businesses present. The Council has worked with Jobcentre Plus and Fosse Shopping Park to offer the fair for the eighth year in a row. Practical help and advice will be on offer for job seekers, and organised workshops for anyone looking to improve their future development.

Cat Hartley, Group Manager for Planning and Economic Development, said:

“We’re delighted to have worked with Jobcentre Plus and Fosse Park to offer the Jobs Fair once again. This is a great event for jobseekers to meet local employers and find out more about opportunities in the district.

“We also encourage our local businesses to reserve a place and take advantage of a unique opportunity to meet hundreds of eager people.”

This event is FREE to attend with pre-registration open from Friday 12 May via www.blaby.gov.uk/jobsfair2017.

Any businesses interested in attending can e-mail jobsfair@blaby.gov.uk or call 0116 272 7765.
