City of York Council is encouraging jobseekers and residents wanting to improve their skills and qualifications to visit a jobs fair at York Railway Institute on Tuesday 20 May from 10am to 3pm.
The event, which has been organised through partnerships between the council, York Learning, Job Centre Plus and Learning City York aims to bring together local employers to offer advice and the chance to speak face to face to businesses about employment opportunities in the city.
There will be a range of employers present along with learning providers and other agencies offering free help and advice for people to improve their skills and help them in their search for employment.
The council and its partners have lined up 50 businesses who are currently recruiting in York, including, Hiscox, Royal York Hotel, McDonalds, Clipper Logistics and G4S Security.
The fair will also have a designated quiet area to enable residents to fill in application forms with the help of some excellent local skills and training providers.
